Doi Inthanon is one of few national parks in Thailand that you can reach by public transport, but you must go by Songthaew (rudimentary Thailand vehicle), transfer a few stations so you should have to understand the route carefully before travelling. This way is only suitable for tourists who would like to take overnight camping. If not, you should choose one-day tour in Chiang Mai for the most convenience. Except the rainy season from May to September, the remaining months are best time to visit this national park.
