How to get there

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flights to arrive at Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX). Transfer from this airport is included in the price. Motorcycle Tours Thailand will pick you up at the airport. Most customers touring with Motorcycle Tours Thailand usually come from Bangkok and in this case, they recommend traveling up to Chiang Mai by one of the many flights operating on this route. It is not expensive and with companies such as Air Asia. The earlier you book, the cheaper the flight.

Arrival by train

The train (night train) is another option; however, the Thai train network needs a serious overhaul. Take a look at the difference between the train cost and the flight costs compared to one-hour flying time or a 12-hour train journey along with the fact that the trains are notoriously unreliable. The train option is usually the odd one out.

Arrival by bus

A lot of buses start every hour from Bangkok’s Northern Bus Terminal (Mo Chit - Chatuchak) to Chiang Mai. Travel time with the bus will be around eight hours.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 10% of the total price.
  • The deposit is fully refundable if the booking is cancelled up to 7 days before the arrival date.
