The Experience

Introducing half, full and multi-day rail journeys tailored to small groups, Smiling Albino is delivering a unique way to experience more of Thailand’s 77 provinces.

The Experts

We saw an opportunity to add our creativity and custom-designed travel style to railway experiences in Thailand, transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary.

The Why

Our mission is to challenge the concept of train travel, and breathe new life into this vintage form of travel.

our inaugural journey

a curious carriage


A customized loco-emotive experience that was two parts wild, two parts raunchy, and a dash of whimsy for the ages. Sensuality, sin, indulgence, gluttony, pride and theatrics engaged, intertwined and excited.

Where We Went

We traveled from Chiang Mai Station to Den Chai Station outside of Phrae. 

The Mission

To recapture the glory and spontaneity of early 20th Century train journeys. 

The Entertainment

A more than 4-hour revue show with performers, magicians, surprises, and guest activities.

Onboard Experience

The trip was a 6-hour ride that featured an open bar, hor d’oeuvres, and a seated 4-course dinner.

Fun, spooky, undead and intriguing. A bootlegger express, Prohibition themed journey that features an Undead Speakeasy-style bar, deadly embalming-themed cocktails, and a step back to a bygone era decked out with costumes for a beyond-the-living experience.
