The overnight express sleeper train to Chiang Mai has always been popular. It’s even more so now because of the new carriages from China. If you want to go on it you will have to wait until at least the new year as it is fully booked. I was lucky to be able to ride it on Sunday night at the invitation of the Minister of Tourism. We took the 2nd Class sleeper. The lower bunk was 881 Baht and the upper bunk was 791 Baht. The train left Bangkok at 6:10pm and was scheduled to arrive in Chiang Mai at 7:15am the next morning. The following are the photos that I tweeted live during the trip.
