Railway Excursion to Khun Tan and Lampang

Description:

After having learned about the construction of the railway from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, we will experience it first hand by taking the train from Chiang Mai to Lampang, passing through the 1.3 kilometer Khun Tan tunnel and stopping on the way back at the iconic Khun Tan station.  The excursion also includes a stop at the newly opened Railway Museum Park in Lampang and lunch at Baan Phraya Suren Restaurant.

We’ll take the 08.50 train (2nd class air-conditioned cars) from Chiang Mai Station to Lampang, arriving at 10:38.  The high-level railway tunnel at Khun Tan was a considerable if costly engineering achievement and we will pass through it en route as well as passing over the iconic white bridge at Tha Chompu.

In Lampang, after visiting the historic train station, we will be picked up by two air conditioned 9 seater coaches which will take us to the Railway Museum Park and then to lunch at Baan Phraya Suren Restaurant (located in a historic house).  After lunch the vans will take us back to Chiang Mai via a 45 minute stop at Khun Tan Station where we will explore the station and its heritage and a 15 minute stop at the white bridge at Tha Compu. We will arrive in Chiang Mai at about 5:30 p.m.

Cost: 1600 THB (includes pre-excursion talk, transportation, and lunch)

Excursion limited to 16 people, so sign up early if interested!
