“Phrae is a small northern town of less than 20,000 people, home to various historic buildings and a number of natural attractions round about. The relatively small bus station in the town is centrally located on Yantrakit Kosol. From here, tuk-tuks and songthaews are readily available and there is a selection of places to stay and eat. Buses from Bangkok’s Mochit station operate on a daily basis, with VIP and first-class tickets both available, although for these options it is advisable to book online in advance to avoid disappointment.

The Green Bus also operates out of Phrae, connecting the town to other destinations in the north including Chiang Mai, Phayao, Chiang Rai and Mae Sai.”
