Arcade Bus Terminal - Bus Station in Chiang Mai

Arcade Bus Terminal or Arcade Bus Station bothThe options are correct. It is possible to speak without the word Arcade, since if you are a tourist, then the local, most likely, will take you to this bus station and will orient you. There is another bus station, Chang Puak is called, but it is local, and you are unlikely to come in handy. So by bus you will arrive at the Arcade, and you will leave the bus with him. By the way, from here and mini bass in Pai goI mention it because Pai is a popular place for information.

Bus station in Chiang Mai

Arcade bus terminal

Chiang Mai bus station is threeterminal: new, old, and the terminal of the bus company Nakonchai Air. The new terminal was built not so long ago, and he is all so modern. There is an air-conditioned room and an internet cafe. The terminal is located in one line and it is quite difficult to get confused there. The distance between the terminals is somewhere around 100 meters. You can buy tickets in both the new and the old building. But it may well be that some windows will move to a new terminal, although at the time of this writing, they seemed to be duplicated.

The main direction in which you can leave Chiang Mai at any time without buying a ticket in advance is Bangkok (how to get from chiang mai to bangkok). Almost every bus company has flights there. Accordingly, all the cities on the road from Chiang Mai to Bangkok are also available for a stop: Pitsanulok, Tak, Sukhothai, Kampeng Phet, Ayutthaya.

If you are interested in cities south of Bangkok, then withouttransplants can go to Phuket, Hua Hin and Rayong (possibly via Pattaya). East you can go in the direction of Udon Thani and Nong Khai, usually this direction is needed for those who want Thai visa in Laos. To the north go buses and minibuses to Chiang Rai, Chiang Saen, Mai Hon Son, Mai Sai, and so on.

How to buy a bus ticket via the Internet

Not so long ago, the 12Go site appeared.asia, where you can buy bus tickets online. Now it is the only service with this feature. Almost all bus companies are present, so there will be a choice. But the directions are not all, only popular ones. In a city in a remote province to buy a ticket until it turns out. Payment by credit card or PayPal, an electronic ticket, very convenient!

Coach and bus timetable from Chiang Mai

I don’t have schedules of all buses and minibuses, so I’ll post all that is and that seemed useful to me.

Bus company Nakonchai Air

Very comfortable buses. Moreover, their vip-32 class is enough for the eyes, it seemed to me even more comfortable than the vip-24, since the seats leaned back very strongly, and I didn’t care about the width.

Nakonchai Air (NCA)
First Class (21 seats) in Bangkok 876 baht, buy only 2-3 weeks, otherwise it will not. Wide leather massage seats (3 seats in a row).
Gold class (32 seats) in Bangkok is 657 baht, on weekdays there is a couple of hours before departure, on weekends and holidays you can not make it. Comfort is enough for a man of average size.

Bus company Sombat Tour

Sombat tour

The most convenient buses to Bangkok. As a rule, tickets are not a problem to buy, and vip-24 and vip-32 classes are very comfortable for me. Toilet on all classes.

Vip-24 to Bangkok costs 789 baht
Vip-32 to Bangkok costs 657 baht
First to Bangkok costs 573 baht

In Hua Hin, you can leave without a transfer, though only First Class, costs 851 baht.

Bus Company Green Bus

Many different directions, but valuable becausethe only one has flights to Phuket. Vip 24 and vip 32 tickets cost 1,900 baht, departure of the bus at 16.00. The price is really too high, and you can fly by plane.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
