Thailand's 'floating train' a hit as dam waters rise

STORY: This 'floating train' has become a big hit in Thailand

Location: Lopburi Province

It passes through one of country's biggest dams

where the water level has been unusually high this year due to monsoons

Passengers can enjoy the illusion of being suspended on the water

The route starts in the capital Bangkok and travels via the Pasak Jolasid dam

Train tickets have been sold out until New Year

“I wanted to ride the floating train since last year, but the tickets were sold out. This year, I rushed to get the ticket since the first day the State Railway of Thailand made the announcement. The view was amazing, I’m so impressed. It looks just like the photos I’ve been seeing because this year the water level is high. I’m proud that once in my lifetime, I got to see the real floating train.”
