Flights To Chiang Mai

The mountainous city of Chiang Mai functions as the cultural capital of northern Thailand. Home to hundreds of beautiful Buddhist temples, a great shopping scene, and vibrant nightlife, Chiang Mai is an essential stop on any trip to Thailand. Flights to Chiang Mai fly in to Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX), just about three miles southwest of the Old City.

Transportation from CNX

You can find a few Chiang Mai hotels just outside the airport and many more in and around the nearby Old City. Some hotels offer transportation from the airport for customers landing on Chiang Mai flights. Get in touch with your hotel before arrival to find out whether this service is offered and what the fees are. CNX hosts several car rental agencies, but it's quite easy to navigate the city relying on public transportation, including cheap, local songtaews and tuk-tuks, and it's also easy to get around on foot, especially if most of your activities keep you exclusively in the Old City. If you're taking a taxi from the airport, be sure to stop at one of the taxi booths inside the terminal to get a receipt. Take this to the dispatcher outside and you will be assigned a licensed driver. There is typically a flat fee to get most places in the city. Once you're settled in, pick your ideal adventure! Hike the steps up to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep to explore the city's most famous Buddhist temple and for an incredible view of Chiang Mai, wander one of the weekly walking street markets along Ratchadamnoen Road, or sign yourself up for a cooking class!

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Chiang Mai

If you like the thought of spending more time at the airport cafes and less time at the security checkpoint on your way to Chiang Mai, follow these useful tips:

  • Make sure you know the whereabouts of your passport and boarding pass. You don't want to hold up the queue when you're asked to present them.
  • Bear in mind that belts with metal buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you have one on, you may be instructed to take it off before continuing.
  • Electronic goods such as laptops, phones and cameras will need to be put through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure they're easily accessible.
  • When you approach the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to put all gels, liquids and creams in a separate tub for scanning. Make sure they're all packed in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Consider your choice of footwear. Slippers are great because they're a cinch to slip out of for the airport security checks. Try wearing a pair on your next flight!
  • The list of non-permissible items is forever changing. Browse your carrier's website to understand what is not allowed on board their aircraft.
