By Train

A very popular way to travel North from Bangkok to Chiang Mai is by train. The time of the journey will vary between day and night, the night train has the advantage of being comfortable thanks to the sleeper but more expensive and slightly a longer ride with just over 13h travel time.

The daytime Bangkok to Chiang Mai train Express DRC is departing at 8.30am from Bangkok’s Hua Lampong station, arriving at 7.30pm in Chiang Mai, a good solution other than a flight or long journey by bus.

In Bangkok, It is also easier and less expensive to reach the train station than going to Morchit bus station, Hualampong train station is a few minutes walk from the MRT (underground) making it easy to reach without an expensive taxi ride
