If you are travelling around Thailand, flying is the best way to go as there are considerable distances between Bangkok and the islands and Chiang Mai and the islands or Bangkok. Airways and Airasia run internal flights to most of Thailand’s most popular destinations and there are also buses and trains servicing major routes.
Passengers can travel by train from Chiang Mai to Bangkok to the Laos or Malaysia borders and many places in between. Trains are safer than buses and are generally more comfortable. Thai trains won’t have baby changing facilities but first class tickets offer a private cabin with twin beds, which will provide more privacy. Popular train routes include Bangkok to Chiang Mai and Bangkok to Surat Thani, the launching point for boats to Koh Samui.
Most taxis have seatbelts however there are those which do not. It is possible to hire a taxi with a car seat for babies in larger cities however make sure you book these in advance. Bringing a car seat with you to Thailand can be cumbersome particularly if you plan on moving around however, most airlines will offer to carry 2 pieces of baby equipment free of charge. If you are bringing your stroller, your car seat could be your second piece of equipment. For further information on travel safety click here.
