Travel to Tham Luang Cave by public transportation


The Blue Van

This Blue Van serving Chiang Rai Muang district and Mae Sai in place of the Green Van which operate by The Green Bus co. It cost a little more but much more pleasant way to travel

More public transportation .... see transit in Chiang Rai


Take a bus (Chiang Rai - Mae Sai) Blue van (50 baht) or green bus line (39 baht)

get off the bus at Wat Ban Jong (Chong) - walking distance of 1.5 km. from this point to the entrants of national park, or you may the service of motorcycle taxi (10 baht)

From the Emerald Pond to the entrants of Tham Luang Cave approximately 1 km. - there are Rod Songtaew take you there for 20 baht

Warning on the return trip - most likely the Blue van filled up with passengers and most likely will not stop to pickup any more passenger, therefore, you will have to take the green bus line, waiting time approximately 30 minutes (under the sun - make sure you have enough of drinking water)

*** Alternatively if you have extra hours on hand, why not take a bus or Roth Song Thaew further up north to Mae Sai bus terminal then take a bus from the terminal back to Chiang Rai, or visit Mae Sai before get back to Chiang Rai. There are Blue Van, Green Bus or Rod Song Thaew from Mae Chan, the fare is 15 baht
