Nakhon Sawan has a railway station on Thailand’s Northern Line running from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, but no local airport. This means that for travel from Nakhon Sawan to destinations other than those on the Northern Railway Line the only public transport available is by bus and minivan from Nakhon Sawan Bus Terminal.

About Nakhon Sawan Bus Terminal


Nakhon Sawan Bus Terminal is conveniently located in Nakhon Sawan town centre. You can easily walk there from the area where most of the hotels are located, which is around the edges of Paradise Park. Nakhon Sawan receives very few tourists and even fewer foreign visitors which means that the bus station and the services provided are focused on the travel needs of people living and working in Nakhon Sawan. Many of the routes are to and from smaller towns such as Saraburi and Uthai Thani in minivans and older buses for very low prices.

Many of the more luxurious intercity bus services to and from Bangkok stop off on route at Nakhon Sawan Bus Terminal although getting a seat on one of those service from Nakhon Sawan is often difficult and involves booking in advance. Generally if you turn up at the bus station and you want to travel on the same day you need to take a minivan or one of the lower quality cheaper services. For short distance journeys this is not much of a hardship, but for long distance journeys, up to Chiang Mai for example, perhaps consider booking yourself a sleeper berth on a train instead.

Buy Tickets at the Bus Station


The ticket offices at Nakhon Sawan Bus Terminal are located near to the main entrance. The ticket windows by the seating are for regular minivan and bus services. The signage is mostly in the Thai language and if you don’t read Thai it is confusing trying to work out which window you need to go to buy your ticket. The information desk at the station we found to be very unhelpful in terms of directing passengers.
