Chiang Mai to Bang Sue Train

As long-distance trains are no longer travelling to the old Hua Lamphong Railway Station in Bangkok you now have to take a Chiang Mai to Bang Sue Train (located 20 - 25 minutes ride northeast of the city centre).

From the new Bang Sue Station, you can travel into the city by the MRT Blue Line or connect to the State Railways of Thailand's Southern Line  - for trains to places like Hua Hin, Chumphon (for boats to Ko Tao), Surat Thani (for boats to Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, as well as bus transfers to Phuket, Krabi, Phi Phi islands on the west coast), Hat Yai and in to Malaysia - or the Northeastern Line to the borders of Laos and Cambodia.

Bang Sue station is also fairly close to Mo Chit Bus Station if you are planning to connect to a bus or minivan service from there.
