Transportation in Thailand

busy_street.jpg (30286 bytes)


The state owns the Thai railroad system and it runs along a total of 3870 km of track.  There is a network of railway lines that go from Bangkok to surrounding cities in all directions.  It goes to Chiang Mai in the north to the frontier of Malaysia in the south.  There is another line available that extends to Myanmar in the northwest.

The highways in Thailand were improved upon in the 1970s and are comprised of roads totaling about 65,000 km.  An important alternative to the highways is the Chao Phraya, the most important inland waterway in Thailand, which can be navigated to about 50 miles from its mouth (80 km).

Thailand's largest airport is the Don Muang International Airport located in northern Bangkok, but may be surpassed by another international airport in the process of being built in Bangkok, which is expected to be completed sometime around the year 2000.  Thailand's airline, Thai Airways offers both domestic and international flights.
