Bangkok - Pak Chong with three kids: mini-van/taxi/train?

What would be your option to travel from Bangkok to Pak Chong?

We are a family of five. I'm inclined to opt for the taxi-solution. Anyone has an idea about the price/time? How do we arrange this taxi?

On the other hand, taxi is the least adventurous choice. Is taking a mini-van easy?

Thanks

Do you want to go to Pak Chong town specifically or to Khao Yai National Park? What exactly are you planning to do there?? What are the ages of your children ?

Most likely booking a private family size taxi will be the cheapest and easiest whatever your plans. I wouldn't take a public mini van with 5 children, more hassle than it is worth it - plus the road safety issue.

If you are interested to go by train.

Time Table: www.railway.co.th/checktime/checktime.asp…

First train

- Train Number: 21

- Type: Special Express

- Departure Bangkok (กรุงเทพ) at 05:45

- Arrive Pak Chong (ปากช่อง) at 08:55

There will be 4 trains leaving bangkok before noon. It may take around 3-4 hours depend on the train type. Normally, Thai train always delay.
