Bangkok's Mochit is the main terminal in the capital

Bangkok features a good number of main, long-distance bus terminals. Mochit (northern Bangkok) is the largest and busiest since it services Northern and North-eastern Thailand. From here, there are also (limited) services to other parts of Thailand. To get to Mochit you need to catch the Skytrain to the end of the line at Mor Chit/Chatuchak Market and then take a 10-minute taxi ride to the terminal.

Don’t be tempted to walk from the Skytrain stop to the bus station as it's a nasty trek for all but the most foolhardy! Buses leave frequently throughout the day, travelling to a whole host of destinations, including to Ayuthaya and Kanchanaburi.

The newly renovated Southern bus station is located across the river in Thon Buri and offers connections to destinations to the south and west. It is best reached by taxi. The Eastern bus station, lying beside the Ekkamai Skytrain Station, provides buses to Pattaya, Koh Samet, and Koh Chang, among other eastern destinations.

Long distance buses tend to be extremely busy during public holidays as the residents of Bangkok rush to their hometowns to visit friends and family. It is a good idea to find out if any major public holidays occur during your trip and book transportation well in advance, or avoid travelling on these days.
