    I have flown on all three of the budget airlines listed here. They are quite cheap but be careful when booking as there are many “hidden” fees that you might not want so you need to remove those options. The train can be fun if you want to experieince the fun of train travel and you have the time. Booking a 2nd class A/C sleeper is nice. You leave in the early evening and arrive in the morning in Bangkok. You can order meals on the train and eat at your seat. In the evening, the staff will come and make up your bunk. Get a lower berth if possible. If you want to see the sights of the countryside then leave in the morning and arrive in the evening.

    We found an AirAsia flight that was much cheaper than an overnight train (I think by about half) so we flew to Chiang Mai and it was really easy and quick. I did book about three months ahead so would recommend booking as far ahead as possible. Agree with Jay’s comment – look out for heaps of hidden fees as you’re booking, especially on AirAsia. While you’re in Chiang Mai, I would highly recommend doing a cooking class. We did heaps of sightseeing and of course eating everywhere and we loved all of it but our favourite day was our half day cooking class. I wrote about my experience here:
