Amazing Thailand #8: Travelling by Train From Bangkok to Chiang Mai
Uploaded by diogok on Sep 20, 2010
There is a popular overnight train that departs Bangkok every evening around 18:30 to Chiang Mai, in the north of Thailand. The seats are made into bunk beds and the train arrives early morning (when it is not late) in Chiang Mai. At the Chiang Mai train station there are some “agents” offering accommodation in town. We stayed in a nice guest house with swimming pool for B400 (about $13/night for a double room, no breakfast). Chiang Mai train station is about 3km east of the city centre, across the Ping River.
Chiang Mai (เชียงใหม่) is the hub of Northern Thailand. With a population of over 170,000 in the city proper (but more than 1 million in the metropolitan area), it is Thailand’s fifth-largest city. Located on a plain at an elevation of 316 m, surrounded by mountains and lush countryside, Chiang Mai is much greener and quieter than the Bangkok, and has a cosmopolitan air and a significant expat population, factors which have led many from Bangkok to settle permanently in this “Rose of the North”.
Obvisiously there are other means to travel from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, like airplane, but I truly recommend the overnight train. It could be noise sometimes during the night (the train lane is very irregular, making the train shake a lot!) and it is not fast, but to me this is part of the fun. And the bed was more comfortable than I expected!
In Chiang Mai there are so many activities that you can do, like visiting the Elephant Nature Park and the X-Centre, but I will start to show these things from the next video.
