Driving from bangkok to chiang mai normally takes from Eight to TEN hrs with respect to the roads issues. It can be a quite striaght forward drive and not overly challenging. A lot of the highway just outside of bangkok are extremely well conserved roads. The middle part of the trip will have fewer very well maintained roadways which are crushed up by lorries and trucks. Look out for big pot holes, ruined areas or even unmade highways.
