Arriving by Bus
Thailand’s safe, comfortable, and inexpensive bus system is a favorite for travelers who wish to conserve their travel budget for more fun and adventure! Take the morning or night bus from Bangkok’s Morchit Northeastern Bus Terminal on Kamphaeng Phet 2 Road near the Chatuchak Market. The bus will stop in Sawangdaendin, and we’ll arrange a free pick-up any time. The night bus gets in around 4 am, and tickets cost about US$15. There are many buses that serve this route but Air Udon is by far the most comfortable and available from counter 55 at Morchit.

On the Road to Ban Tao Hai and Saimun Airport
Follow the country road for about seven kilometers through five small villages. Please drive slowly, politely, and very carefully. The surface is paved but sometimes very rough. You will almost certainly have to slow down or stop for farming activity, people, children, and animals that block the road day and night.
Several signs along the way will lead you to the airport. As you approach, you will see a long gardened wall with a guard gate on the right-hand side of the road marking the entrance to the resort. Please turn in. Welcome!
