We are currently in Bangkok & just about to make our way down to Ko Chang. After here we plan to go to Chaing Mai, train it seems is the cheapest option but I'm not sure if we will be able to do this with the flooding that;s still around.
Does anyone know if a train from Bangkok will be fine? Or are there any other suggested routes?

If you can't get on the train, it's possible to bus-hop your way up to Chiangmai from Trat by going from Trat to Sa Kaeo, then getting on a bus to Khorat, then on another to Chiangmai. It may require an overnight somewhere.
You could also go via Khon Kaen or Udon Thani. Basically, look at the map, connect the dots, and hop on a bus.
Or you could save yourself a load of time and fly.
Trains on the northern line Bangkok to Chiang Mai are pretty much back to normal
Or as above, get a bus to Khorat then Chiang Mai (train is more fun though)
