Getting from Bangkok to Chiang Mai (in Northern Thailand) was super easy and affordable. I know there might be a bus or train that one can take (around 15 hours) but I opted to fly.
Uber to airport (THB420) and then Air Asia (AUD$42) to Chiang Mai.
It was a full, packed out, 1 hour flight. It was smooth and the Air Asia staff were great. Arriving in Chiang Mai, it is clear that the taxis feed off the airport. A taxi to the apartment (Air Bnb) was THB180. Seems cheap, but considering it’s a 7 minute ride, it feels pricey. C’est la vie.
The apartment is lovely. It is “premium” in terms of some options in Chiang Mai at AUD$30/ night.
Close to 7 Eleven, 5 minutes walk to a Tops Supermarket, and some local food nearby too.
Lazy day after all that travel. Craving “Western” food, 5 mins walk away:
Welcome to Chiang Mai… Looks cute already.
