Many Thai people as well as Foreigners prefer to travel by Bus from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, with a traveling time of about 10 hours, somewhat faster than the Train. The Bangkok to Chiang Mai route is highly competitive and we give the Timetables and Fares for three of the most popular carriers.

Most buses to Chiang Mai and the North leave from Mo Chit Bus Terminal, (See Map below) although Nakhonchai Air have their own terminal nearby located at 27 Vipavadee-Rangsit Road. Services to Chiang Mai are very frequent and run from 5:30am until 11:30pm.

If you wish to transfer from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Mo Chit Bus Terminal there are several alternatives.
Taxi from Suvanarnabhumi Airport.
By Bus (No.551 from Suvarnabhumi Airport to the Victory Monument and then by Taxi to Mo Chit Bus Terminal.
