Backpack: To take the train to travel at Muak Lek waterfall in Saraburi province. It is one day trip with budget 300 baht.
Sawad Dee Krup. I really hope that this review will at least grab your attention.
I think staying at house all time is a bit boring, so I prefer to find some place to chill out for this vacation
I then start searching for nearby attraction and I decide to go to Muak Lek waterfall in Saraburi province
But, it might not be so fun to go alone, thus I have persuaded 2 close friends to join this trip with me.
At 07.30 hrs. We reach Hua Lamphong Railway Station. I buy the ticket for Bangkok to Khaengkhoi, the train will depart at 08.20 hrs. The ticket fee is THB 50. But my close friends have not come yet.
I take many photos while I waiting for my friends.
My friends just reach the railway station at 08.15 hrs, it is almost the same time that the train will depart. We better run now.
Finally, we can do it, we can catch the train no. 75
The final destination of this train is Udornthani but we will get off at Khaengkhoi.
We take many photos along the way to Khaengkhoi.
We insert Fulicolor C200 film into our camera.
We are hungry now, we buy stir fried pork with basil THB 20 per portion and drinking water THB 15.

We continue taking photos.
Before we go to Muak Lek waterfall, we go to have some coffee at Rongsi Coffee. It is about 900 meters from the railway station.
The below map shows how to get to Rongsi Coffee.
Finally, we reach Rongsi Coffee.
There is also the river behind Rongsi Coffee, so we continue taking photos.
At 12.40 hrs. it is time to go to the waterfall.

Let's go to waterfall.
We are now at waterfall, we still emphasize on taking photos.
Unfortunately, it rains.
We need to get out from here and take the orange bus now.
We have waited for the bus till 16.30 hrs. but the bus has not arrived. We then ask local people and notice that there will be no more bus for today. However, we decide to go for our backup plan which is to hitchhike
We hitchhike almost 10 cars, some has stopped but go to different direction.
At 17.00 hrs, we have been supported by the woman who has volunteered to escort us to bus stop because we already miss the chance to catch the last train to Bangkok.
She drops us at bus stop, then we wait for the bus to Bangkok.
Thank you very much for her kindness.
We have waited for a while, then the bus arrives. We get on the bus and pay for the ticket fee at THB 140.
