How to get from Nong Khai to Bangkok

For your Nong Khai–Bangkok travel you have a choice of a bus or a train. Trains take a couple of hours longer to arrive to the destination, but the night sleepers give you a great chance to sleep the whole journey through. For solo women travellers there is an excellent option of ladies only sleepers. Buses are faster, and the choice is wider as they depart throughout the day. If Nong Khai is your first port of call after Laos and you are planning to take the international bus from Vientiane to Nong Khai bus station, it is easier to proceed with a bus, though you can as well get off the international bus after going though the Thai immigration and walk to the train station instead.

Tip: Buses from Nong Khai arive to the northern Bus Terminal in Bangkok, Morchit. If you are going to stay in Bangkok, you will have to make rather a long journey to the centre or the most popular areas with a wide choice of accommodation. Trains bring you to the centrally located Hua Lamphong train station which is handier. If you are going to head to Suvarnabhumi or Don Mueang airports, it does not make much difference whether to arrive to Mochit or Hua Lamphong. There are shuttle buses to both airports from Morchit. From the train station you can take the Metro (Phetchaburi station) to connect to Makkasan station of the skyrail (operating hours 6am–12.25am daily). There are regular direct commuter trains to Don Mueang airport, which take about ¾ hr to reach the airport. You can buy tickets to Suvarnabhumi from Hua Lamphong with 12asia, too.

From Nong Khai to Bangkok by train

Nong Khai train station is the terminus of the northern line of the state railway of Thailand. The train station is located an easy 15-minute walk or a short tuk-tuk ride from the Friendship bridge. There are four trains heading to the capital during the day, each taking from 11 to 13 hours to cover the whole distance between the cities.
The morning train #76 departs from Nong Khai at 7am and arrives to Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok at 6.10pm. It is a second class AC seats only at THB748 and it actually steals you the whole day. But it is a decent if you are going to get off on the way.

There are two other trains with seats only: a 6.15pm train #78 arriving to Bangkok at 5am (3rd class AC seats at THB748) and a 6.30pm train #134, the slowest (nearly 13 hours to arrive to Bangkok) and the cheapest one (THB413) from the bunch with third class fan seats only. If you can, try to avoid both of them.

The most convenient option is the #26 sleeper at 7.10pm. It reaches Hua Lamphong at 6.50am and offers first (THB1,807) and second (THB1,248) class coaches, as well as second-class ladies only (TH1,248) coaches. The night train is a great choice as you can sleep with more comfort compared to a bus, though the latter are also quite comfortable.

From Nong Khai to Bangkok by bus

Buses to Bangkok by various private bus companies depart during the day. You may try to buy a ticket on the spot at the bus station in Nong Khai where the international bus from Vientiane arrives. Buses differ by price and the level of comfort they offer. For longer trips we recommend to opt for VIP express buses as the price difference is not great, but the level of comfort is.

Budsarakham Tour operates a VIP bus which departs from Nong Khai at 8.05pm and arrives to the Mochit Bus Terminal in Bangkok early in the morning at 4.35am. The service is fast and reasonably prices (THB562). Snacks are provided on board and the bus makes a couple of pit stops at large gas stations with a variety of forecourt operators, from hawkers to chain restaurants and 7/Eleven convenience stores.

Tip: Nong Khai has good bus connections with the other towns and cities of Isan and other provinces of Thailand. If you are not fond of 8+ hours bus trips, split you journey making a detour to Loei, Khon Kaen or Kanchanaburi.

Bus VIP, Budsarakham Tour, Dec 5, 2019
Easy exchange of voucher and ticket, bus was on time, reclining seats, usb charging, free drinks and snacks! Staff on bus didn’t speak English and weren’t super friendly but it was the best bus I’ve had in Asia all in all.

All my tickets (not just this one) were delivered at the Nongkhai parcel office, very efficient! The train was super clean, the staff very kind and hard-working, and the journey extremely comfortable. We arrived at Hualamphong with a slight delay, probably about 15min

train #26 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways, Aug 11, 2019
Arrived on time and got into Bangkok on time. The beds in the first class cabins are of a decent size and are pretty comfortable. The cabins can get very cold but you’re able to adjust the vent in the ceiling (something we realised too late!) The carriages have toilets and even a shower! There are no free snacks or water, so make sure you at least bring a drink on with you because options on he train are limited.

Bus Express, Air Udon, Jul 18, 2019
It was easy to check into air udon and I was happy to see that the pickup point was right next to the building where we checked in. It was a little confusing about the arrival of the bus but we managed to get on the right one with the help of the workers. This bus going back to Bangkok/Morchit seemed to have weaker A/C and the provided blankets didn't feel very clean. We were given a small meal, bottled water, and a snack at a stop which was nice. One thing I have to mention though was that originally we had intended to get off at Morchit but we were curious and wanted to see if the bus would stop by Don Muang. (I meant the airport but language barriers :() when I asked one of the workers I think he told me that the bus wouldn't run by there. Fast forward to the next morning when we were awoken and rushed to get off at a stop quite a ways from where we had liked to stopped. We were so rushed that the bus intended to keep going while my husband was trying to quickly get off. It was a little shocking. But overall the bus ride was fine, I wish I had learned more Thai to better communicate with the staff members.

Excellent support from the main office (in Bangkok) of 12Go for our three Thai rail trips. Our online reservations were confirmed with vouchers, which we used to pick up the actual tickets in BKK. We were even given a cash refund for an overpayment. The train travel was wonderful, with on-time trains, clean 2nd and 1st class sleepers, and friendly staff, both with the rail service and 12Go. Highly recommended.

Look it was pretty reasonable in the second class. The seats were padded and reclined, there were fans in the carriages and food vendors came on and off the train regularly.

train #26 1st Class Sleeper, Thai Railways, Apr 26, 2019
We may have been better off booking this service in Ventiane as it would have included transport to the border, and we would not have needed to get to the station 2.5 hours early to get our tickets from the parcel desk. That being said - the train was clean and comfortable (we splurged on first class which meant we got to use the lounge before the train departed). It arrived in Bangkok 1.5 hours late, but that was actually preferable for us. There were a lot of long stops in the morning which meant we were awake from 5:30 am on.
