The Bangkok Railway Station, known to local people as Hua Lamphong Station, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The historic station was officially opened on 25th June 1916. This is the main railway station in Bangkok. It is situated in the center of the city in Pathum Wan District. However, its days are numbered as this terminal station will be relocated to Bang Sue in northern Bangkok in 2019. This is due to congestion and traffic problems at railway crossings. It’s believed that the present 100 year old station in Bangkok will become a railway museum.
