Hi all,
Im going to Chiang Mai at the end of September, we are plan to go Ayutthaya for a day trip then at night we travel back to Bangkok. Im looking for a transport from Chiang Mai to Ayutthaya (preferably bus or train), appreciate if some one could advice me. I believe that we could get a bus from Ayutthaya to Bangkok easily (m i right?).
How far is Khao San road to Sukhumvit, both of this in the same district? Khao San road and Sukhumvit which is the best place to stay for backpacker of 6 in a group? Which is the place that can get public transport easily?

We caught a train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai (stopping in Lop Buri).

The train from Chiang Mai stops at most destinations to Bangkok. I believe it does stop at Autthaya.

To find out more it would be best to search:

Chiang Mai to Ayutthaya + Train


This will be sure to come up with the timetable for the train schedule.

Don't look at the prices on the internet as they are always to expensive and you can get them cheaper when you are in Thailand.

From Ayuthaya to bangkok is not a problem at all. Buses leave every 20 minutes from 5:20am-8pm daily with just 34 Baht if i am not mistaken. Buses from Ayuthaya will stop at Northern Bus Terminal in Bkk.

You can just simply choose train or bus. By train,you can buy the sleeping booth and sleep throughout the journey. As for bus,now there are lots of VIP buses which is also comfortable.

Khaosan Rd is a bit far from Sukhumvit.If you are staying in Khaosan,you can take cab to Sukhumvit or just take a cab to the nearest skytrain station(Ratchatewi or Victory Monument) to catch a train to Sukhumvit.Tuk Tuk might charge you more expensive because you are a farang.

You can easily get public transport everywhere in Bkk. LOL!!!!

Good Luck!!;)
