Kamphaeng Phet

“Situated midway along the most widely used bus route from Bangkok’s Mochit terminal, between the Thai capital and the popular historic city of Chiang Mai in northern Thailand, the town of Kamphaeng Phet is the capital of the similarly named province. Several bus services of varying classes leave hourly in both directions and are available between 06:00 and 22:00 hours. In addition, a number of public bus services continue to depart throughout the night.

The bus station in Kamphaeng Phet is located on the river’s west side, off Kamphaeng Phet Rd, less than two kilometres west of the roundabout. Travellers making arrangements in advance can get any guesthouse or hotel to provide drop-off and pick-up services. There are always motorcycle taxis that operate around Kamphaeng Phet bus station as well.

The most convenient way getting around the town of Kamphaeng Phet is by bicycle. Bicycles can be rented at the main guesthouses and hotels. Motorcycles can be hired as well for the reasonable price of 200 baht per day. However, the selection is rather limited. The maroon songthaews seem to operate frequently during daytime from the Big C mega-store in the south of town, to Bumrungrat Road, where the lively day market takes place.”
