Thailand plans ‘Trans-Asean’ bullet train linking China and Singapore

Bangkok residents may find it hard to imagine that their next trip to Beijing could begin in Bang Sue.

The district, which has garnered less fame than its neighbour, Chatuchak, the city’s hub for travel to the North, is set to become part of the “Trans-Asean Line” — the government’s ambitious plan to build a rail network linking Thailand to other countries as far away as Singapore and China.

Under the state’s plan to make Thailand the logistics hub of Asean, officials have agreed that high-speed trains will be at the heart of the country’s much-needed new infrastructure system.
