I forgot to tell you how to pass the time in a Thai overnight train! ...first, find the BAR CAR. It typically has US hits from the 1950s (and in my experience a Black Eyed Peas album) and alcohol. After becoming friendly with the local passengers and employees, return to your car, thoroughly "exhausted" and ready to pass out. Then, pass out. The ride will be over before you know it!!
I guess it's a little late now. Sorry :-)


Oh my gawd, Anna, that would have been a great idea... except there was no bar car on our train! After researching later,it turned out we had bought tickets on the late-night cheapo train. No a/c sleepers at all, no bar car, no restaurant car, plus it was the slowest of all the night trains! We really did a good job.

We did get the steward to bring us a couple of enormous Beer Chiang, which helped somewhat.

Pad See Ew, or Phat Si lo, is an incredibly popular dish that originates from Northern Thailand in the province of Chiang Mai.
