About Travel to Chiang Mai
Bus services from Chiang Khong to Chiang Mai arrive into Chiang Mai Bus Terminal 3 which is 4.3 km to the east of Chiang Mai’s Old Town. There are hotels and guesthouses very close to this bus terminal, indeed there are rooms available for rent by the hour nearby if you want to shower and rest before taking another bus or train out of Chiang Mai, however, the area near Chiang Mai Bus Terminal 3 isn’t particularly interesting. For an overnight stay in Chiang Mai most visitors choose to travel into the city centre. You could take a tuk-tuk into the city, which will cost you around 100 THB. A cheaper alternative is to go to the shared taxi booth in the terminal and wait for lift on one of the red shared taxis which costs only 30 THB per person to any location on its route.
There are two main areas where visitors to Chiang Mai tend to stay. The first of these, which you pass first in a shared taxi, is the riverside area around the popular Changklan Road. This part of Chiang Mai is outside of the historic walled city centre and doesn’t have any major historical sites, but it does have some of the city’s best value hotels and it tends to be the liveliest part of Chiang Mai in the evening. Many people prefer to visit the historic old town in the day and spend their evenings in the lively night markets and bars in the riverside area. The alternative to staying in the riverside area is to stay in the Old Town itself. Younger visitors tend to prefer the Old Town particularly because of its many budget guesthouse and very cheap places to eat. If you stay in the Old Town then the place to go for nightlife is the square at the intersection of the Ratvithi and Ratchapakhinai Road near to where the very popular Zoe in Yellow Nightclub is located.
