My Ride: From Bang Sue to Butterworth
The train took me from Bang Sue station in Bangkok to Butterworth in Malaysia. The ride was tortuously long, with crawling insects on dirty walls and horrible toilets that would have suffocated an amateur-traveler - though I found the dirtiest to be the train in Bangalore.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed the ride from Bangkok to the Malaysian border. The ride from here to Butterworth was incredibly boring and disappointing, I should have taken a bus.
