From Sukhothai To Chiang Mai + First Impressions – Thailand

How awesome is it to be able to explore Northern Thailand this way!
This is such an exciting trip, we are pouring happiness every step of the way.
On today’s video, we arrive at legendary Chiang Mai, have a look at how you can do it too below.👇

How To Get From Sukhothai To Chiang Mai

By Bus

Sukhothai’s bus terminal is located in the new city, not extremely far from the central area, but far enough to grab a tuk-tuk.
The 2nd class buses to Chiang Mai depart frequently during the day, we paid 207 baht each and the trip took 5 hours.
First class(266 baht) and VIP(375 baht) buses depart with less frequency, make sure to book in advance if you choose this options.
There are 2 bus stations in Chiang Mai, the one running long-distance trips is called Arcade, located about 4,5 km from the old city.

How To Get From Chiang Mai Arcade Bus Station To The Old City:
☛By Minibus
There’s a map of the minibus route at the bus stop, located across the parking lot on terminal 2 (GPS:18.800200,99.017483). The old city is small, there’s probably a walkable stop to your hotel.
Tickets cost 15 baht per person and the waiting time between buses is 20 min.
☛By Tuk-Tuk
The famous transportation will charge about 150 baht for a ride to the old city.
☛Songthaews
A larger version of a tuk-tuk, able to carry more passengers, will charge 30 baht per person and will depart when full.
☛By Taxi
Usually, the taxis will have a fixed fare of 150 baht.

Address in Thai: 165 หมู่ 5 ถนนแก้วนวรัฐ อำเภอเมืองเชียงใหม่

By Train

There are no trains that departure from Sukhothai.
The most convenient train station nearby is placed in Phitsanulok, a neighbor city one hour away by car/van.
At first, it wouldn’t make much sense to choose the train knowing that the bus departs straight from Sukhothai, but Phitsanulok is also a historical city, for those who are interested in visiting it’s a great option.
You can spend the day at Phitsanulok and then head to Chiang Mai at night if staying in the city is not in your schedule.
If Phitsanulok is not in your plans, but still you prefer traveling by train, take a bus or minibus to the train station. It will take 1 hour cost from 30-70 baht depending on the coach.
Trains from Phitsanulok to Chiang Mai cost in between 65-305 and take 6-7 hours depending on the class and train type(express, ordinary, etc).
In this website you can check timetables, fares, and seating options with pictures of all trains in Thailand: http://www.railway.co.th/home

By Flight

The small airport is a beautiful one, reminds me of Koh Samui’s airport.
Only one company caters to the city.
The prices are higher than the general rate in the country but doable for those who don’t want to lose time or don’t like to travel by land.

The excitement of seeing the several ruins just in front may put you off at first from visiting this undeniably beautiful temple but I will suggest giving it a try.
It also has 14th-century ruins even though there are new constructions coming together to complete the only temple in the old city that still active.
With peaceful environment, the first impression will be strong when you actually get to walk across the wooden bridge while the lanterns gently waving with the wind in a welcoming sign.

Sukhothai Vlog: Night Market and Getting Things Done – Thailand + How To Get From Ayutthaya To Sukhothai

We arrived in the beautiful ancient Sukhothai city!
Time to get work done and rest for the upcoming adventures.

Sukhothai Vlog: Night Market and Getting Things Done - Thailand + How To Get From Ayutthaya To Sukhothai

How To Get From Ayutthaya To Sukhothai

By Bus

Buses from Ayutthaya to Northern Thailand depart from the new Bus Station, located out of the city island on highway 32.
In the majority of cases, your hotel will be far away from this station(not be confused with the Bus Terminal just in the city center and walking distance from many hotels), a songthaew or moto taxi will be needed to get you there.
For a 2nd class bus + songthaew ride from our hotel, we paid 341 baht per person. If you wish to book a 1st class bus it will cost you 420 baht WITH the transportation to the Bus Station.
We suggest booking through your hotel or any travel agency in town (if the price is in accordance) because the bus station is far away and going all the way there to book the tickets is a huge waste of time and money. There’s a stall from the bus company selling the tickets on Narusean Road(near the old Bus Terminal) but it can be hard to find, still, if you buy it yourself you will need to book the songthaew which will cost 100 Baht (per car not per person). Knowing that, booking everything through your hotel can save time if the price is matching.
The trip will take around 6 hours.

Ayutthaya Bus Station – สถานีขนส่งอยุธยา (สายเหนือ)
Address: Highway 32, 55/5 Moo 1, Tambon Tha-nu, Amphoe Uthai, Ayutthaya

Address in Thai: 55/5 หมู่ 1 ถนน สายเอเชีย ตำบล ธนู อำเภอ อุทัย พระนครศรีอยุธยา
Website: www.transport.co.th
*It’s important to note that there are 2 BUS STATIONS in Ayutthaya, this is the new one, that is found out of the island about 20 min by songthaew from the city center.

Sukhothai Bus Terminal Songthaew To Our Hotel
By Train

The trains departing from Ayutthaya don’t run to Sukhothai, the nearest stop is Phitsanulok taking 4-5 hours(depending on the train type), located 60 km from Sukhothai. Tickets can be bought at Ayutthaya Railway Station(see address below), which is centrally located, and will cost 58-455 baht and take 3,5-6,5 hours depending on the train and class (rapid/special express/ordinary).
Check timetables and fares at the website listed below.
At first, it wouldn’t make much sense to choose the train knowing that the bus goes straight to Sukhothai, but Phitsanulok is also a historical city, for those who are interested in visiting it, it’s a great option.
Arriving early, you can spend the day at Phitsanulok and then head to Sukhothai at night if staying in the city is not on your schedule.
If Phitsanulok is not in your plans and you prefer traveling by train, after arriving at the train station, directly pick a tuk-tuk to the bus station where you should transfer to a min bus or regular bus to Sukhothai. It will take about 1 hour costing from 30-70 baht depending on the coach.

By Air

There’s no airport in Ayutthaya.
A nearby destination that flies to Sukhothai would be Bangkok.

 

Here all addresses and extra info from everything you saw on the video:

Ban Thai Guesthouse – บ้านไทยเกสท์เฮ้าส์

Nice and quiet guesthouse, we would stay again.

 

Sukhothai Night Market
Address: New Sukhothai, near the bridge, around Jarodvithi Thong, Ramkamhaeng, and Rat Uthit Road
GPS: 17.009377,99.819131

The market consists of street food stalls and some fresh produce, it’s not the usual night market with all the knick-knackeries that are found around the country.
For vegans buying fresh exotic fruits are the only attraction, the day we visited we couldn’t find any vegan-friendly stalls.
If you happened to be in the city on a Saturday, the Saturday Night Market is a bigger and more attractive one starting from 6 pm taking place at Nikorn Kasem Road.

 

This beautiful city will unveil itself in the next posts!☀️
Stick around for more of breathtaking Sukhothai!

A Magical Journey To The Northern Thailand – 1 Month Of Breathtaking Backpacking

 

Thailand is rich in culture, colors, and flavors. The Land Of Smiles, the waken ones.
Usually, the beaches are the main focus when talking about this country, but there’s so much more to be experienced.
Hill tribes, traditions, villages, attirements, abundant culture to immersed.
Hot springs, waterfalls, mountains, wildlife, blooming nature at its best.
Temples, ruins, history, strong faith that can be felt and seen.
Exotic, fresh, scrumptious food; a vegans paradise.
A total package, from the people to the places, blessing from the Universe to us.
Their slogan “Amazing Thailand” is underrated, I get it though, no word can describe so much.
