If you’ve ever driven up or down Soi Siam Country Club as far as Siam Country Club and the golf courses, you’ve most likely noticed the serpent in the small lake, the pagodas in the immaculately trimmed field, the old train and the twin prop aeroplane.
Actually it’s a little more than a field, it’s a garden, a very impressive garden. I don’t know why I say so, but it’s the sort of place you could imagine running naked, or even having a late afternoon picnic.
Just across the road from the old train there is an entrance, you can venture as far as the path will take you, which is pretty much the edge of the field, which is a good vantage point to get some nice photos of the first pagoda.
The plane (photo above) is one of many exhibits on display at the Siam Motors Railway Station.
You could say this place is all about planes, trains and automobiles, yes there are automobiles as well. But the main exhibit is the beautifully restored train which takes pride of place at Siam Motors Railway Station.
The above photo is of the text on the information placard at Siam Motors Railway Station, that really sums up what this place is all about.
For your information, The Pornprpha family are one of wealthiest families in Thailand, besides owning Siam Motors, they also own Siam Country Club which also for your information was the first privately owned golf course in Thailand. The family have multiple business ventures, and they also own a hotel chain, one such hotel of that chain is the Siam @ Siam Design Hotel in Pattaya.
