On-line Tickets and Route Planner
There 2 great resources available to help you easily buy bus, train and taxi tickets from anywhere to just about anywhere else in Thailand. They might not be the perfect solution all the time, but they can certainly make planning your trip and buying your tickets painless. Both sites are very similar and work in a similar fashion, they don’t always give you the most direct route, or the cheapest route, but in many instances they do. I suggest you give 12go.asia and busonlineticket a try. I used 12Go Asia myself to book 6 tickets on the overnight sleeper train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai.
