1. Aircon Bus No.5 - Lotus - Phanit Nauk - Chao Phrom market - Rajabhat University of Ayutthaya [AKA Ayutthaya teacher collage]. This one is passing Wat mahathat and Wat Ratchaboorana along with Ancient Palace, Wat Mongkhon Bophit(a major temple between TAT tourist center and Wat Phra Srisanphet) and Ayutthaya Historical study Centre. You can catch this one from Chao Phrom market. This bus running at 15 minute interval from 5.30 AM to 10.30 PM
2. Aircon Bus No.6 - Government Complex - Hua Ror Market - Phanit Nai - Old Elephant Kraal. This bus line is for those who want to go to Chao Sam Phraya national museum, Hua Ror Market, Chan Krasem Palace [Ayutthaya National Museum], Ancient palace - Khum Khunphaen [traditional Thai house not far from Chao Sam Phraya national museum. This bus running at 15 minute interval from 5.40 AM to 9.40 PM

1. Provincial Public Heath of Ayutthaya
2. Ayodhaya Hotel
3. Ayutthaya railway station
4. Chao Phrom Market

If you want to try this one to go to several place - 200 Baht an hour or so but need to check updated prices to prevent another rip off.

Finally, I met Khun STN, but not at Food island ... as Khun STN came late since he thought Food Island at 6th floor of MBK closed at 10 PM ... eventually, I met Khun STN at Srikrung Hotel and give the Train 909/910 (Namtok line) to him along with goodies from SRT. ...

Now, Khun STN has learnt very hard lessons -
1. He needs to have dinner early or he has to rely on 7-11. Food court closed at 9 PM. in Thailand - even in the weekends - not 10 PM as in Singapore.
2. Furthermore, during the train spotting at Samsen by riding Diesel Railcar [the only place with flyover that good enough] he learns the need to have cool drinking ready during the trip to Namtok
3. he also learnt the loud noise of Diesel railcars that make Railcars unpopular to KTM
4. STN also felt astonished to learn that GE has been in used for 50 years [since 1964] which should have been retired long time ago ...

His collections of train spotting can be seen here:

For the case of Khun Kelvin, Now he got the 555 Baht tourist package from railway lady who is going to be his guide. What a relief ...

I just brought Khun STN to Taling Chan by Hua Hin ORD [Train 261] and the take Namtok train (Train 258) to Thonburi before bringking him To Thonburi Locomotive Depot ... everything went well until he has spotted barking dogs which peter him away from the deepest part of Thonburi Locomotive Depot ... then we have a lunch near the museum ... We did take a photo of pavilion along with the statue of King Chulalongkorn and Prince Sirirj and then take a photo of Mikado 950 loco ... After that, we head to the museum that record the past of the land before becoming Thonburi station - the day to conceive Thonburi station and Southern line and Siriraj Hospital and Medical school of Siriraj as a part of Mahidol University ... and learn more about health and Thai medicine .... and the community around Bangkok Noy [Thonburi station] ... and then we go to Phran Nok pier [AKA Wang lang Pier] to take Chao Phraya express to go to Rama 7 pier and climb the old stairway to take a photo of the train but we got sunburn for almost an hour (15.20 - 16.00) before spotting IE35 which has been delayed ... after that we took a taxi to Bang Bumru station along Bang Kruay - Sai Noy road ... got a strong wind before the rain... but at least we got the taxi on time before raining. We did take picture of SP 37 - Rapid 169 and ORD 355 along with photo around Bang Bumru station .... and when the rain stop around 5 PM, we took another taxi to Bang Son station for another spotting and got Rapid 173 .... along with taking a picture of Bang Son station of SRT and Bang Son station of MRTA. After that, we took Aircon bus no. 97 to Bangsue ... Initially, I thought I could get a good from Ban Makham restaurant ... but I learn very hard way that it is closed ... so we got to eat Phat Thai at the hawker between Bangsue 1 and Bangsue 2 with some trainspotting instead ... Now, I learnt that I better not to bring too far into the dangerous corner that have angry dogs ... For the list of Halal restaurants near Thonburi, I will compile later.

For the trip to Kanchanaburi, I'll focus on the good stuffs around Kanchanaburi City ----

Khun STN said he has come to Ayutthaya by taking Rapid 135 to Ayutthaya and take ORD 202 back BKK - see lots of things ...

Note that at the day KHun STN has come to Ayutthaya, Rapid 111 has been attached with Rapid 135 because of the loco shortage -- Not restaurant car in Rapid 111 while Rapid 135 has a restaurant car. After that, he went to yutthaya Historical Study Centre, Chao Sam Phraya Museum, Ancient Palace, Wat Thammikarat, Wat Mahathat before taking ORD 202 back to continued to joyride BTS Asok -> Thong Lo -> National Stadium -> Bang Wa -> Sala Daeng - explored a bit of Lumphini park.. lastly went to Yaowaraj and dinner there

Lots of photo to the point that Khun STN has to upload once he is back to Singapore.
