Chiang Mai is the most wonderful place to visit when you want to envelop yourself in a crowd of festival goers. During the Thai New Year in April, the streets of Chiang Mai are packed to brim with Thai people cheering, and the night sky is sprinkled with glowing lanterns. The city is one that is exotic, and strongly traditional. Learn about the indigenous tribes of the area at the Tribal Museum, or visit the Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep buddhist temple. If you want to get away from festival crowds and a unique moment, visit the Tiger Kingdom to see beautifully cared for kitties.

Book away = great, bus = terrible!
Booking through this website was a simple and clear experience, the only way to improve would be to give information about how to pick up tickets at the station - this would potentially be a tricky thing to do in a country like Thailand though. Also, it would have been great to know that a meal was free at the stop. The bus, however, was atrocious. Old, falling apart seats can be expected but these were really uncomfortable for such a long journey as the padding had clearly been worn out. The bus struggled to get up the smallest of hills! After leaving nearly an hour late and struggling to get through the journey we arrived at our destination about 2 and a half hours late! Being late can happen, but when you’ve been on the bus for 13 hours and end up arriving at 10pm it can really impact what you can do when you arrive somewhere.

How to get from Bangkok to Chiang Mai

Bangkok and Chiang Mai are two of Thailand’s most vibrant and exciting cities. Bangkok is all hustle and bustle, bright lights, chaos, and capital-city edginess, whilst Chiang Mai - located 700kms (435 miles) to the north, is the more laid-back, digital nomad haven, full of cool cafes, great coffee, art, co-working spaces, and yoga studios.  

Both have a lot to offer, and are must-sees whilst you’re in Thailand, and Chiang Mai is a great base to explore the north of Thailand, including the awesome town of Pai, which is nearby. 

There are three ways to go from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, which will suit every budget. The cheapest option is to take a bus (10.5 hours approx.). There are 6 departures per day, and you can choose from the VIP or Express Class, with the Express option being a little more expensive, but more comfortable, taking you from central Bangkok to Chiang Mai. 

If you don’t fancy the bus, you can take the train (12 hours). Which has three seating options to choose from (Seater, Second Class, and Sleeper), and is a comfortable, eco-friendly way to travel. The trains have A/C, and include a blanket for the journey. There are luggage limits, so if you’re traveling with a lot of stuff make sure to check this out. 

Your final option is the more expensive but more personalized mini-van option (9 hours). This is a great choice if you’re traveling as a group, and want privacy and to be able to customize your trip. The minivan seats up to 9 people, and will pick you up wherever you like in Bangkok, and drop you off wherever you want in Chiang Mai. The minivans have air conditioning, and friendly drivers. 

The journey from Bangkok to Chiang Mai is quite long so we’d recommend getting the last bus or train, sleeping during the journey, and arriving in Chiang Mai bright and early, and ready to explore the arty cafes, delicious food, amazing night market, temples, and elephant sanctuaries. 

Pro tip: Get a coffee and thai massage when you arrive, and then head out to explore!

 

What to see when traveling from Bangkok to Chiang Mai

What you’ll see when you gaze out of the window depends on the time of day you travel. The later departure options will be dark for most of the journey, perfect for sleeping while you travel. Although you will be able to see the beautiful sunrise as you arrive in Chiang Mai. 

If you leave earlier in the day you will see the traffic and bright lights of Bangkok turn into countryside, rolling hills, and lush trees, and eventually give way to the mountainous landscape and rice paddies of Chiang Mai, before you arrive in the city, which is a rich mix of temples, night markets, and artsy nooks and crannies. 

 

What is the best time of year to visit Chiang Mai?

The coolest time to visit Chiang Mai is from Dec-Feb, when the weather is around 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) during the day, with a cool breeze to keep you cool. You can wander around one of the most creative cities in southeast Asia, explore, and take day trips out into the mountains. Great trips from Chiang Mai include checking out the near-by hippie village of Pai, Chiang Rai and its temples, or getting out into nature for a hike or visiting one of the many elephant sanctuaries. 

Do bring a jacket though as it can get chilly at night.

Chiang Mai starts getting warmer, and by mid-March until June temperatures reach a HOT 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). Whilst Chiang Mai doesn’t have a beach, you can cool off in the nearby mountain towns, or seek refuge in a local cafe.

From June-October the temperature cools down to a comfortable 32 degrees Celsius (89 degrees Fahrenheit) during the day, but the rainy season is also in full swing! So expect daily showers. Typically the mornings are bright and sunny, with the downpour coming in the late afternoon or early evening, so you can definitely still enjoy Chiang Mai during the rainy season. The rain is a great excuse to get “stuck” in a comfy cafe for the afternoon!

Chiang Mai has something for everyone; you can spend your days downing coffee in cool cafes, doing yoga in the amazing studios, exploring the temples, or being part of the rich digital nomad community that has grown in recent years. 

 

What is the best time of year to visit Bangkok?

Bangkok is one of the hottest cities in the world, with 30 degrees Celsius (85 degrees Fahrenheit) being pretty standard. It’s also a must-visit for every traveler in South East Asia, with so much to see, explore, and do. 

Whilst Bangkok is typically hotter than Chiang Mai, their seasons have similar timings, making it easy to make the most of both cities. November to February is ideal for exploring the city, chilling on one of the many roof terrace bars, eating amazing food, and checking out the rich culture of the Thai capital.

Bangkok has something for everyone and every budget. From budget hostels to world-class hotels, from street food to fine dining, from beers in Khao San Road to cocktails in boutique bars, not to mention hundreds of temples. You will not get bored in Bangkok.  

From March to May it starts heating up, with temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). Time to find rooftop bars with a pool! As you’d expect from a city of its size and stature, there are plenty of things to do that don’t involve walking around in the midday sun, and most places will have aircon. 

From June until October it starts to rain! The downside of this is obviously the rain, but the upside is that many hotels and hostels will reduce their rates during this time, and as Bangkok is a huge city you can still find plenty of things to do. But bring an umbrella, just to be on the safe side.
