How to get from Chiang Mai to Bangkok

Getting from Chiang Mai to Bangkok overland is easy and straightforward. There are direct trains linking the terminus of the northern line of the state railway of Thailand with Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok. Numerous buses connecting the northern capital with major provincial centers around the country depart throughout the day from the Arcade Bus Station. If you travel by car, exit Chiang Mai via Route 11 and switch to Route 1 at Lampang. Depending on the means of transport you choose, the whole journey lasts anywhere between 9 and 14 hours.

From Chiang Mai to Bangkok by bus

Buses between Chiang Mai and Bangkok are frequent. The route is served by a number of companies, so you have a wide choice of the operators and type of buses. Buses take about 10 hours to reach the capital making several stops en route at large gas stations with a number of forecourt operators including 7/Eleven or Jiffy convenience stores, Amazon coffee shops and the like. There are toilets on board and at the gas stations, too.

Buses from Chiang Mai to Bangkok depart form the Arcade Bus Station which is located east from the Old City, some three km away. You can get there by tuk-tuk or songthaew. There is a in-city bus station in Chiang Mai, too, which is connected with the larger Arcade Bus Station by songthaews.

In Bangkok, buses arrive to the Northern Bus Terminal, Morchit. Note that it is located at the outskirts of the city, and if you arrive late in the evening – e.g. with New Viriyayanyon Tour 7am–5pm bus at THB643 or Bangkok Busline 10.30am–8.30pm bus at THB551 – make sure you have your accommodation booked as it is not a good idea to cruise around in the dark in a hope to find a good place to sleep.

There are a lot of night buses departing from Chiang Mai between 6pm and 8pm, all arriving to Bangkok between 4.30am and 6am. These include Bangkok Busline at 6.35pm (arrives at 4.35am), 7.15pm (5.40am), 8pm (6.25am) and 8pm (6.00am) at THB551, THB643, THB857 and THB551 correspondingly and a 7.30pm (5.55am) Lignite Tour bus which cost THB643. The most expensive are VIP24 buses which have 3 seats in a row instead of usual four and thus provide you with more space. The cheapest ones are standard express buses which are also ok, but may feel a bit too cramped for a Western traveller. VIP buses offer a good balance between the price you pay and the level of comfort you get.

From Chiang Mai to Bangkok by train

The northern railway line, which connects Chiang Mai to Bangkok, is the busiest one of the whole Thai railway network. Trains leave throughout the day providing you with a wide choice of options to get from the northern capital of Chiang Mai to Bangkok. The railway journey from Chiang Mai to Bangkok takes from eleven to 14 hours and may be as smooth as silk or a real nightmare – depending on which ticket you book. So before booking a particular train double-check which kind of seats you are about to buy.

Note: Please note that even with the first class sleeper you will not get a brand-new coach, but it will nonetheless be clean and quite comfortable, and the service is normally very good, even though the staff do not speak English at all or speak minimal English.

The best way to travel from Chiang Mai to Bangkok is with a night first or second class sleeper. Berths in Thai trains are wide and each of them in equipped with curtains which pull together and provide you with enough privacy for you long journey. The two most convenient departures are train #14 at 5pm and train #2 at 6pm. #14 arrives to the Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok at 6.15am and has a second class AC sleeper at THB1081 and a first class single sleeper which is the most luxurious way of a railway travel in Thailand. Tickets cost THB2253 and which is a great investment taking into consideration the duration of the trip.

Train #2 is the most popular choice to travel from Chiang Mai to Bangkok. It has normal second class AC sleepers and women-only second class AC sleepers at the same price of THB1081 and a first class AC sleeper double occupancy at THB1073. It reaches Hua Lamphong by 6.50am.

There is one more sleeper, #52, which leaves Chiang Mai at 3.30pm and arrives to the capital at 5.25am. The schedule is a bit inconvenient, but a lower price for a second class AC sleeper somehow compensates (THB1021).

Tip: If you wish to have more space, book a lower berth in a sleeper as it is nearly half wider than the upper one. If you are travelling with a baby, the lower berth is your best choice.

Two morning trains, #102 at 6.30am and #8 at 8.50am, offer seats only. #102 is the slowest (the trip from Chiang Mai to Bangkok lasts nearly 15 hours!) and the cheapest one (THB591) from the bunch, but it has only fan coaches and we do not recommend taking it if you have other options available.

Train #8 is the fastest train between Chiang Mai and Bangkok and covers the whole distance in 10½ hours. It has second class AC seats only and can be considered, too, especially because it gives you a great chance to admire the country-side scenery by daylight – well, and do some people-watching of your fellow passengers.

Tip: As a rule, there is a dining carriage in the train, but to make thing ever easier for passengers – oh yes, you are in Thailand! – food vendors patrol the carriages, so snacks and refreshments are never in short supply. Note though, that it is illegal to sell any alcoholic beverages on the train.

From Chiang Mai to Bangkok by plane

Astonishingly low airfare from Chiang Mai to Bangkok offered by several budget airlines has already made many of the most ardent buffs of buses and trains to set eyes on air travel. Cutting travel time from Chiang Mai to Bangkok from 12 hours to 1½ hour, low cost carriers do a really great job.

One of the latest additions to the low cost carries scene in Thailand, an associate of the Indonesia-based Lion Air company, Thai Lion Air makes 10 daily flights between Chiang Mai and Bangkok. Tickets cost from THB1000 to THB2000 per person and include 15 kg of checked-in luggage and 7 kg of cabin luggage. You can depart from Chiang Mai as early as 6.50am to reach Bangkok by 8.20am. The last flight from Chiang Mai is scheduled at 10pm sharp.

Chiang Mai International Airport is located only a couple of kilometers southwest of the old city and is easily reachable by tuk-tuks, songthaews and taxis. The fare from many locations in the city to the airport is even lower than the fare from the airport to the city and is usually about THB100. One of the four busiest airports of the country, Chiang Mai Airport has ATMs, post office, medical service, restaurants and all other services a traveler may fancy.

In Bangkok Lion Air is based in Don Mueang International Airport to the north of the capital. It is connected with the city by airport shuttle buses (routes A1 and A2). A1 terminates at Morchit bus terminal calling en route to Morchit BTS. A2 heads to Morchit BTS first and then proceeds to Saphan Kwai BTS, Ari BTS, Sanam Pao BTS and finally reaches the Victory Monument (THB30). Travel time depends on traffic and is from 60 to 80 minutes. There are commuter trains between Don Mueang airport and Hua Lamphong train station, too. Trains take about 50 minutes to get from the railway station to the airport and are always a secure bet. Operating time is from 3.10am till 10.15pm.

Are you sure you have seen enough of the North?

A three-hour drive from Chiang Mai to Pai is not for faint-hearted – or those with a weak stomach. But if you survive 762 turns from Chiang Mai to Pai (yes, you have read it right – seven hundred sixty two), you will be rewarded with an incomparable quiet beauty of the Pai Valley and a laid-back vibe of once lost-in-the-middle-of-nowhere village which even today, with hundreds of tourists cruising its streets daily, still preserves that old-school, comfy air of a small secret paradise. Book your journey from Chiang Mai to Pai with Prem Pracha VIP24 bus for THB195. They have buses every hour from 6.30am till 5.30pm. There are minibuses plying the same route, but in a big bus you are less likely to suffer from nausea.

Prem Pracha also operates one bus a day from Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son, which is further northwest from Pai. Mae Hong Son is a chilled-out destination and a great place to admire less visited waterfalls, pumper yourself in local mineral mud spas or get acquainted with tribal culture. Prem Pracha bus departs from Chiang Mai at 9pm and reaches Mae Hong Son at 2.15am; tickets cost THB378.

Passenger reviews out of total 74,789 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

A cool way to get between the two cities. The first class cabin was exactly as described, new and clean, with plenty of space for two people. The beds are quite hard and the train is fairly loud and bumpy throughout the night, so don’t expect the best night’s sleep of your life. But overall I would recommend it, a great experience.

I have rode other sleeper buses in other countries before e.g. cambodia, china, and I must say I was very impressed with this service. The bus seats allow you to recline almost 180 degrees to a flat bed and I had a comfortable sleep. The bus drove very safely at a moderate speed. Some travellers are unaware but there is actually a USB charging points for mobile phones hidden at the side of the seat. They provide snacks at the start and end of the trip which was nice. They also stopped by a local restaurant for supper (free, included in the ticket). The bus attendant would check that everyone has returned to the bus before leaving but I think everyone would appreciate it if they could just annouce what time the bus would leave the restaurant so that we would not worry if the bus would leave without us while we ate.

Brian Quinn summed it up the way I would. The only difference was that we did not see cockroaches, The first class lounge in Chang Mai was very comfortable and worth using prior to getting on the train if you arrived a few hours early. The seats are so comfortable that it is easy to fall asleep. The service in first class to and from Chiang Mai was always extremely pleasant. After spending 35 years in the military it was still hard for me to sleep both ways. The tracks are not the smoothest. We bought food using their train room service to Chang Mai but decided to buy our own food at the local stores in Chiang Mai for the return trip. Dress warmly for sleeping.

Modern train, comfy beds, staff were kind of rude on the train but that’s not so much an issue regarding the train.

Check in process was relatively easy. Flew air Asia which charges 40 Canadian dollars per checked bag. I have flown around the world and have never paid so much to check a bag. (Typically 20-25 per bag) airport was good, airline was less the desirable.

The only reason I’m not giving this five stars is because 12goAsia messed up our booking and did not put our family together but instead booked two rooms on opposite ends of the car. When I walked back to tell them they said nothing they could do so went to train station ticket counter. Luckily they had two adjoining rooms available and moved us. It was clear in our booking request and was a miss by 12GoAsia. Would still use them again but would follow up and make sure they confirmed our exact seat assignment after booking

It’s all about the experiences in life and you’ll get one on this train trip. The first glass was great, beds were fine but I didn’t really sleep very well myself. The A/C is on the entire trip which does get cold, so make sure you have a sweatshirt or something warm to ware during the night. The blanket they give is like a large towel, not that warm but does the job. We did see cockroaches around the train but none in our room. You can board the train about 30-40min of departure, just so people know know this in case you get to the terminal early. Get some food and drinks before you get on, it’s cheaper and the choices on the train are just snacks not actual meals. Overall, good trip, fun experiences!

We were extremely disappointed with the entire train experience. The train ride, all 13 hours, was like being on a boat or an amusement park ride as the train rocked from side to side. The staff on board were rude and the food was served cold and was very overpriced. We will certainly never take an overnight train again in Thailand.

Service from 12GO was all handled well, no issues. First Class sleeper unfortunately not what you pay for. Minimal difference from 2nd Class, WiFi is non existent, worked for one minute here and there, 99% not working, Interactive LCD useless, Map and generic returning train info only, Interactive part to order food and drinks never worked ("failed to connect" message all the time) to have to go 7 carriages back to order food and drink with a baby is not easy. Overal not worth the money and time. Better to fly.

My trip from Chiang Mai to Morchit station on May 20, 2018 @6:35 PM with Bangkok Busline was really pleasant as I was able to sleep throughout the trip. Also, our attendant was very thoughtful and nice he even opened and put the blanket on me when I fell asleep. We weren't using it cause we thought we'll have to pay a fee but it was actually free. The leg space and the seat was also comfortable as it could be adjusted to fit the comfort of the user. Also, they provided snacks and drinks twice during the trip. Overall, it was a comfortable experience and I'll surely ride it again. Kudos!

The bus was late so we got a different bus. It stank of piss all over not only in/around the toilet. Completely unfriendly staff who stopped 3-4 times along the way to have a pee in a normal toilet and smoke but didn't let nobody else even get some fresh air during this long trip. Very warm and you arrive in the most inconvenient terrible bus station ever. very bad experience. It is very economical but the train is 100 times better for only a couple of 100s bahts more. You just need to book in time, we were a bit too late

Nice cabins but better if we could book 2 (4 beds) cabins. I was only advised when we collected tickets 2 & 4 yr old were not allowed own beds even though we were prepared to pay full price. Sharing is no fun in such cramped beds and the lack of luggage space doesn't help. The train needs a daily bug spray as we were accompanied by roaches in the room. Otherwise journey was fine and would do it again. Cheaper than flying and more fun.

Travelled in a first class cabin. Train was an hour late, and most of the night the air-conditioning was so cold and blowing directly on the top bunk it was really uncomfortAble we could not sleep. The whole carriage stank of urine and even though the blankets came from a sealed bag, it had dirty marks on them. There were such limited number of first class cabins we could not travel on the days we wanted to travel on. More first class carriagea should be added to the train.

I read everywhere that sleeper with fan would be better than AC considering the AC is much too cold. Now experiencing only a fan, I would have preferred the AC to make sure I wasn’t dying of heat. The actual service/customer service was fantastic, but unless you are guaranteed a lower berth for travel (so you have a window) the upper berth is much too hot to sleep. You cannot close the curtains or you will be loosing your only source of air/cooling.

It was a relatively comfortable trip. They provided a blanket and 2 sets of snacks for the 10 hour trip. I had a lot of leg room (i'm 5'2), and there was a separator between seats. However, the waiting area in chiang mai was crowded, and did not have enough seats for the waiting passengers. The bus was late for a couple of minutes but managed to arrive on time at the destination.

But I could keep some other things that where 125ml. If you complain about it they suddenly dont understand you. Very disappointing!

We got a vip bus with a different company a week before but it was nowhere near as good. We got a box of snacks and water as soon as we got on. A tv screen in the seat in front with games and movies. Lots of leg room, reclining chairs and a blanket. They stopped and we had an all you can eat buffet dinner included, and then crisps, milk and a Swiss roll later on. Would definitely recommend as a cheap option traveling round Thailand.

Wonderful trip in first class sleeper. It was well worth the money. We ordered dinner and breakfast from the restaurant car and had a very comfortable trip. Only two small gripes - the air conditioning makes it feel like polar winter. And they wake you up an hour before arrival, which is much more time than I needed to get ready. Apart from that a lovely and memorable trip.
