I took the Thailand Railway from Bangkok to Nong Khai overnight on November 10th. My 2nd class A/C seat folds out into a flat bed with privacy curtains and a reading light. This was my 4th overnight trip in 2nd class. (I hope to try 1st class before I go home in December)

The 12 hour journey landed me in Nong Khai around 8:30 am where I took a tuk-tuk to the Laos Border. After paying a $36 Visa fee and borrowing a passport photo from a Dutchman (I forgot to bring one of my own) I walked into Laos. (The Laos immigration photo didn't seem to notice the photograph was of a light-brown long haired man.
