By train it takes between 11 and 14 hours to travel between Bangkok and Chiang Mai depending upon which train service you use. Travel by train is slower than air travel but it is also more enjoyable. The scenery on the train journey is very good. You also have the option of travelling overnight in an inexpensive sleeper berth and saving on the cost of a hotel room for the night.

The first stage of the train journey goes through the outskirts of Bangkok with views of the city few tourists would otherwise see. From Bangkok the train then travels across the flat central plain of Thailand through a seemingly endless stretch of rice paddy fields interrupted only by towns and cities along the way.
