Chiang Mai Province

Getting there & away

Chiang Mai International Airport fields dozens of daily flights from Bangkok, as well as various other cities in Thailand. There are also international connections with cities in Myanmar, China and Laos.

Chiang Mai serves the main road transport hub for all of northern Thailand, with virtually every town and village linked to the city by bus or sǎwngthǎew (small pick-up trucks). Most buses to other provinces in the north (as well as elsewhere in Thailand) arrive at and depart from the Chiang Mai Arcade (New) bus terminal.

The State Railway of Thailand’s (SRT) northern line terminates in Chiang Mai, and many travellers arrive by overnight train from Bangkok.
