    Overnight Train to/from Bangkok

    The train staff ready to go to Bangkok

    The overnight train to/from Bangkok is a great and cheap way to get to Chiang Mai. The cost for a second-class bottom bed aircon is 661 Baht (US$17.00). This is the perfect class on the train, extremely comfortable and not as expensive as first class, and if you ask me its cleaner than first class. The train is extremely clean. The beds appear to not even exist at first but fold into comfortable beds. The mattresses on the trains are better than in most guesthouses! You get a blanket, pillow, sheets, and personal light. On the bottom bed you get the window, so I really recommend getting this bed, aircon or not. This is the best way to get/to Chiang Mai from Bangkok.

    Train platform

    Chiang Mai can be reached by train from as far as Singapore (2500 Baht or so 2nd class aircon bottom). The train system in Thailand is extremely good and comfortable. If you have the time you can go through Malaysia and Thailand all the way to Chiang Mai! It's a great experience!

    Express train from Bangkok

    The State Railway does most of the train networking in Thailand including the Bangkok to Chiang Mai one. The distance from the two cities is about 751km and it takes about the same time as the coach...12-14hours. Yes, i know...express train. However, this is much comfortable depending on the cabin class u choose. U should check out the website for classes and prices. There is a cheaper but bloody-uncomfortable-u-will-definitely-get-a-back-ache train service which will cost u less than US$3!
