Like last year for Vietnam this year we will travel with Emirates. Venice flight will last about 12 hours in which will be including a short stop in Dubai.
Once in Bangkok we will spend a few days in the city moving us on foot, by taxi or tuk tuk. Bangkok has the most regular taxi service across the country, while in other places these are private cars with negotiable rates. The tuk tuk, however, are small motor vehicles for which charges should be agreed with the driver before departure. In tourist centers like Bangkok often tuk tuk drivers do charge high prices to foreigners so remember to always negotiate before you ask for a ride.
To get to Chiang Mai we will take a domestic flight: air travel from one location to another in Thailand have affordable rates. Almost all flights depart from Bangkok and arrive in Chiang Mai, Ko Samui and Phuket. In the specific to get to Chiang Mai we will take a Bangkok Airways flight which, in one hour, will bring us to the destination.
Other solutions to move in Thailand are buses or trains: the Thai railway network linking the four corners of the country and is a good alternative to buses, also the train is the ideal medium for short excursions from Bangkok to Ayuthaya and Lopburi.
The railways are operated by State Railway of Thailand and are divided into 4 main lines: north, south, northeast and east. All long-distance trains depart from Hualamphong station in Bangkok. Trains are divided into three classes: first, second and third. Tickets have prices that vary and can be purchased at stations, in travel agencies or by request at the hotel.
Buses: The Thai bus network is extensive, every town is served by public buses and has its BKS station. Inquire before leaving is the main rule to follow for not being scammed.
