Well I am sitting on the sleeper bus that will take me to Chiang Mai by tomorrow morning!
Haven’t been in Bangkok and really actually explored. I was happy to shrug away some of the negative anxiety and just wander around to take the vibe of the city in. Well this is the 3rd time and let’s hope it’s like a charm!
From arrival, I was happy to see that 3yrs later Bangkok has a airport rail link! So took that into town up to Phaya Thai station and then got on the BTS skytrain straight over to the Mo Chit station then finally took a taxi to get my bus ticket to Chiang Mai. Couldn’t check in until 1pm so might as well faff productively.
Last time I went to Chiang Mai I took the overnight train but seeing as I am on a much tighter budget this turn around along with having the luxury of time I opted for taking Nakonchai Air bus.
