    About Travel to Chiang Mai


    Train #9 to Chiang Mai

    Located only 1 hour away from Sukhothai by bus, Phitsanulok Train Station is the nearest railway connection to Sukhothai Historical Park. Many foreign visitors choose to travel by train between Sukhothai and Chiang Mai, rather than take the bus which is journey of 5 hours 15 minutes. Although the journey by bus is quicker, the train is more comfortable particularly if you are planning to travel overnight. The scenery from the train, especially as it passes through the mountains of the Doi Khun Tan National Park, is also better than the scenery travelling by road. We recommend travelling by day for this reason and there is plenty of time to get from Sukhothai to Phitsanulok in the morning to catch Train #7 which departs at 13:22.
