Alternatively, you can take the train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. Most journeys are overnight and take approx. 12-15hrs. There are some trains running during the day, if you wish to take in the scenery. On the train there are a number of choices available: first class which has private cabins for 2 people, second class sleeping births either A/C or fan (these are only divided by the carriage, seats are folded out to make sleeping births). There are upper or lower births - lower births are preferable (wider and no stairs to climb). You can also take the sprinter train which has A/C seats and is fairly fast compared to other trains. From Chiang Mai Railway Station you can take a tuk tuk or songtaew (red truck) into the centre of town; the journey takes approx. 5-10mins.
