Hi all,
We will be arriving in Bangkok and are going to Chiang Mai in June. We will have a few suitcases that may be a problem to fly with. Has anyone taken the overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang mai? How did you find the ride? How many suitcases are allowed on the train?
Really appreciate your feedback.

I have taken the train many times and have always enjoyed the ride, but I like trains, I do.

I have not traveled on that train in some time so things may have changed.

Use to be If you book first class you will have a room in which you will be able to store a bit more luggage.

In addition you used to be able to check some items through.

It is also possible to ship things via rail. I have known people who have shipped motor bikes.

Hope this helps.

Hi ! I thought how a trip from Bangkok to Chiang Mai would be romantic. So in my investigation on the internet (can't remember where!) I was thoroughly convinced I would be in for a MISERABLE trip. Think it was overnite...no scenery and aircon was on all night (bring your jacket!) Who needs being uncomfortable for all the time (I think I remember 12 hours )? Hope this is helpful...I read Expat web postings nearly evey day!
