How to get from bangkok to other thai destinations
There is a network of trains (these are the slowest transport option, but often cheaper), an extensive network of long-distances buses that rocket out into every corner of the country, and several budget airlines making travel north or to the islands in the south a quick and relatively painless (and often quite cheap if you travel carry-on only, especially).
The cheapest option is train 7 (641 thb for second class).
