Along with a string of other factors, such as great food, thrilling festivals and fabulous landscapes, Thailand’s well organised transport system provides another reason to visit.


A comprehensive system of low-cost airlines connects all major towns in Thailand, and while for some journeys you might want to take the train or bus, on other occasions it’s great to think you can get anywhere in the country in an hour or two.


Travelling by train can be great fun and in Thailand there are four networks to choose from. The Northern Line goes from Bangkok, via Ayutthaya, to Chiang Mai. The Northeastern Line has two branches, one leading to Nong Khai and the other to Ubon Ratchathani via Khorat.

The Eastern Line also has two branches; one heading to the Cambodian border at Aranyaprathet, and the other going to Pattaya. Finally, the Southern Line leads to the Malaysian border, passing towns like Hua Hin and Surat Thani on the way.
