There has been much talk over the last few months about new high-speed rails links planned for Thailand and neighbouring south-east asian countries.

Two example routes have been Bangkok to Chiang Mai and Bangkok-Nong Khai. Perhaps in the future linking up to Shanghai in China and Singapore.

  • What do you think about this?
  • Do we really need high-speed railways in Thailand?
  • Are they a good idea?
  • Would a move like this be better for the environment in the long run?

Please discuss below.
