Hua Lamphong Railway Station, BangkokHua Lamphong Railway Station, Bangkok (29 August, 2006)

Hua Lamphong Railway Station (GPS: 13.73881, 100.51658) a big railway terminus in Bangkok. It is the railway hub for all the railway lines in Thailand. It is located on the southern end of the Pathum Wan district. The terminal building was built in the Italian Renaissance style - some say it was modelled after the Mancester Railway Station, not sure how much that is true. Hua Lamphong was open on 25 June, 1916, after a six-year construction period. The station has 14 platforms and 26 ticketing booths. Over 130 trains stop at Hualamphong every day, carrying about 60,000 passengers.

When Hua Lamphong Railway Station was built, the city centre was at Rattanakosin, putting the railway station to the east. Over the years, places like Ratchaprasong has developed to be the new downtown area, putting Hua Lamphong to the west of the new city centre.

Since 2004, passengers can also take the MRT subway train from Hualamphong to other parts of Bangkok.
