Maha Sarakham Province is roughly in the center of the Northeast or Isan Region of Thailand. Mahasarakham city is the capital of the province. It is about 470 kilometers from Bangkok.

By Bus

Several bus companies run comfortable air-conditioned buses between Bangkok’s northeastern bus terminal at Mo Chit and Mahasarakham.  The trip takes about seven hours.  Refreshments are served on board and  the  bus  stops for a meal at an appropriate time.  To return to Bangkok a bus can be boarded at  the Mahasarakham  bus  station  or from the Rungprasert bus terminal behind Serm Thai in Pangmuangbanchaa Road.

By Air

Thai Airways schedules three flights a day between Bangkok and Khon Kaen which is 75 kilometers from Maha Sarakham. You can hire a tuk tuk or taxi to take you to the Khon Kaen bus station where you can catch the pink bus to Mahasarakham

Air Asia operates daily flights between Bangkok and Roi Et which is 40 kms from Mahasarakham. The airport at Roi Et is 18 kms from Roi Et city. There is normally a car for hire available to take you into Roi Et bus station where you can catch the pink bus to Mahasarakham.

By Train

For travelers who like the idea of an overnight train trip, a train with sleeper carriages runs from Bangkok to Khon Kaen. Once again a tuk tuk is needed to get to the bus station where a bus will bring you the rest of the way to Mahasarakham.


The pink bus service runs regularly between Roi Et – Mahasarakham – Khon Kaen and operates between the hours of 5.30 am to 7.30 pm.
