View from train is superb. AC is very cold and noone does anything about it. No advance notice of food served on train nor no alcohol rules. Windows very dirty which spoiled the view. Shame when so easily corrected...???? ????

Everything was OK. All in all the trip was a good experience. Train was on time. Lights were on during all night and the train is very cold, but we knew it beforehand. I would recommend to book train #9 instead, which is the new one. Need to book in advance. It was sold out when we did the train booking. Very good experience with 12go.asia.

Pour les amoureux du train et les nostalgiques des voies métriques! Les voitures ont au moins 50 ans, et c’est pas si facile quand vous avez beaucoup de bagages, mais tout le monde est très accommodant. Les gares, surtout dans le nord, ont un joli aménagement paysagé .

How to get from Chiang Mai to Phitsanulok by Train

Taking a train to get from Chiang Mai to Phitsanulok is a safe, fast, and scenic option to travel the country. On certain routes, there are multiple train departures per day every 10 to 15 minutes. This is typical for intercity travel, while for long distance train routes there are fewer scheduled departures – plan ahead to choose the one that fits your itinerary best.

For long distance train journeys, we recommend reserving your tickets at least a few days ahead of your travel date. Buying train tickets via our online booking system will allow you to choose and reserve the best Chiang Mai to Phitsanulok tickets.

Buying your tickets online will help you secure the trip on the selected date and avoid queuing at the station.. When travelling on weekends and holidays it is recommended to reserve tickets much earlier due to a much higher demand. During high season, train tickets sell out quickly – do book as early as you can.

How far is it from Chiang Mai to Phitsanulok?

Travelling by train, the distance from Chiang Mai to Phitsanulok is 252 miles. Before setting
on for a train journey, have a look at the map to find out what tourist spots or landmarks you will pass by – maybe they are worth a quick stop?

How long does it take to get from Chiang Mai to Phitsanulok by Train?

Travel time from Chiang Mai to Phitsanulok is estimated to be about 5h 44m. Trains ensure the fastest time to travel by land. As normally there is no congestion, the speed of travel is more or less constant and stops at train stations are rather short, train is almost always one of the quickest and safest ways to get from Chiang Mai and Phitsanulok.

The most important thing that may affect train travel time is the type of train. Ordinary trains travel at a speed of about 40 mph or 65 km/h to 65 mph or 105 km/h. Some intercity trains with shorter distances between stations run slower than 40 mph. Even with these low speeds, it can still be faster than commuting by car, bus or taxi.

The speed of express trains can reach up to 100 mph or 160 km/h. Modern high-speed trains can run at speeds exceeding 250 mph or 400 km/h.

These speeds of travel together with relatively short stops between stations can greatly shorten the duration of your trip.

How much does it cost to get from Chiang Mai to Phitsanulok by Train?

Premium or luxury trains and coaches have a higher ticket price but are equipped with air-conditioning, toilets, and large soft seats with sufficient legroom to make train rides comfortable.

Best-Rated Companies for this Route

Unlike buses or taxis which have numerous companies offering their services, train service is usually offered by just one major company in each country. As railway service requires a large amount of infrastructure, most railway companies are government-owned and are a part of the national transport system.

One of the best advantages of travelling by train is that railway stations are often conveniently located within or very near major cities and urban areas. Immediately on arrival to their destination, travellers find themselves in close proximity to important facilities like hotels, supermarkets, and hospitals.

If you travel with a lot of bags and luggage, trains are your best option. Luggage weight limits on trains are rather flexible and allow you to carry multiple bags with you.

Special or luxury trains feature sufficient legroom which allows you to stretch your legs and relax. In comfort and space these train seats can be compared to business class airplane seats.

Similar to buses, trains can provide a variety of amenities to make your travel more comfortable and enjoyable. Modern trains have WIFI service, a snack counter and a drinking bar. Onboard toilets can be a life saver for travellers with queasy stomachs.

Lastly, unlike buses and other overland means of transport, trains are very rarely involved in accidents.
