bangkok to udon thani train
How to get to Vientiane from Chiang Mai?
Im traveling to Bangkok in Feb 2013, by train (sleeper) Im going from Bangkok to Chaing Mai. I would like opinions on the best way to get from Chaing Mai to Vieintiane & then from Vientiane to Luang Prabang! Everyone seems to have a different idea, whats yours? I have 3 wks to do this trip from whoa to go, want to use my time wisely & try not miss things/attractions along the way 🙂 thanks in advance!
The best way by bus is to get a VIP bus to Udon Thani, then a bus to Nong Kai. From the bus station in Nong Kai get a tuk tuk to the Thai Lao friendship bridge. From there another tuk tuk to a bus station in Vientiane to get a bus to Luang Prabang.
I live not very far from Nong Kai and drove my 1953 Jeep to Luang Prabang. it was a good trip through mountains on very steep winding roads

There are other weblinks on that page that ought to at least prove helpful.
A similar situation exists at SiamHotel.net‘s page Udon Thani Trains (Railway) Schedule. I can find nothing indicating how current the schedule is.
The same can be said for Lonely Planet:
Udon Thani is on the Bangkok–Nong Khai line. Express trains leave Hualamphong station in Bangkok at 8.20am, 6.30pm and 8.45pm arriving at Udon’s train station (0 4222 2061) about 10 hours later. Express departures in the reverse direction leave at 6.47am, 6.40pm and 7.20pm. The fares to Bangkok are 245/369/1177B for a 3rd-class seat/2nd-class seat/1st-class sleeper.
You may be better served visiting ThaiRailways.com:
Udon Thani (Udon) – How To get to Udon Thani (Nong Khai) By Thai Railways
Take Thai Railways Northeastern (North Isaan) Line from Bangkok’s Hualamphong Station bound for Nong Khai and get of at Udon Thani Station.
Of particular interest would be the page Thai Railways serving the North East of Thailand. And since the departure point is of course Bangkok: About Bangkok Railway Stations / Other Bangkok Rail Connections / Services. Also, there is the Train Time Table page.
In all, there are daily daytime trains, and three daily nighttime trains from Bangkok to Udon Thani and vice versa (most of which normally originate or terminate at Nong Khai), and several local trains to other destinations, including Nakhon Ratchasima.
The official State Railway of Thailand website is Railway.co.th. This is without doubt the best place to go to find reliable train timetables. Just be sure to select the English option if you do not understand Thai. When I did so today (November 10, 2012), the Timetable I was presented with for Bangkok to Udon Thani was indicated as having last been updated June 1, 2012. The timetable even allows you to check for current train fares.
You might find an illustrated August 22, 2011, post at a blog called Adventurizing to be of interest: Train trip – Bangkok to Udon Thani.
As well, it would prove somewhat instructive to check out a two-page thread begun August 3, 2011, at the UdonMap forum that is titled Train – Bangkok to Udon Thani.

bangkok to udon thani train
I am off to Thailand in 6 days time and need some advice on cost of living?
please could someone give me some good advice on costings in thailand such as – Hotels / Food / Transport ( Trains ).
As don’t want to get ripped off!
Just like every tourist you WILL get ripped off as soon as you step through Customs and Immigration at Subrev…. airport in Bangkok.
Advice: Do NOT get into a ‘Limousine taxi’. When I went there last year, their uniform was orange. They charge DOUBLE the price of a regular taxi to downtown Bangkok, but their cars are just like any other ordinary taxi. Get into a regular METERED taxi OUTSIDE the terminal building, and INSIST that the driver turns the meter ON.
Do NOT get into tuktuks(3 wheeled motorcycles with a cab over the top. They will NOT take you to where you want to go, but instead drive you to some souvenir shops, which you are supposed to enter because, as my tuktuk driver kept insisting, doing so means “free gasoline for meee, free gasoline for meee.”
The hotel I stayed at in Bangkok had small bugs crawling all over the nightstand and washroom.
The hotel in Udon Thani was nice, and I could get a junior suite for about $30 CDN per night, and that included a fruit plate for the first and last night.
Be careful not to leave your credit or debit card in an ATM there as you will never recover it.
Do NOT go on an elephant ride in Ayuthani. The sales staff in Bangkok told me that the fee was 1200 Baht, but when I got to the entrance gate only 20 minutes later, the price had been jacked up to 1600 Baht. They wanted to take a picture of me, and insisted that that was included in the entrance fee. But when the ride was over(waste of time and too short), they tried to charge 300 Baht for the picture which they had said was included in the entrance fee.
Do NOT ask any Thai to take a picture of you anywhere as they will try to get 20 Baht from you for each picture taken with your OWN camera.
Do NOT ride any trains as they are frequently delayed 3, 6 hours or more. I almost missed my international flight to Japan(I only had 30 minutes before that flight took off to check in and go through security).
Depending on where you go, airlines are much more reliable there, and are not so expensive.
