Chiang Mai Airport Domestic & International Flights, Taxi Price to Old City
The terminals are linked in one large rectangle building and all check in counters are located on the ground level. Passengers then make their way up to level 1 to pass through security and immigration (for international flights). After passing through security, you will be able to purchase food and drink as well as get a foot massage, purchase souvenirs and buy duty free alcohol.
For arrivals, there are ATM’s located in the arrivals hall as well as money changers. Chiang Mai Airport has a taxi desk located inside the arrivals hall which organises authorised taxis for passengers at fixed rates. It is advisable to only use this taxi service as you will be charged an inflated rate if you opt for a driver waiting at the exit.
The authorised airport taxis charge a flat rate of 160 THB to get into the old city. The prices are listed up on the wall and it is worth having your hotel name ready to show the person behind the desk. They will write down the destination and give you a receipt with the price noted on it. They will then send you to the taxi queue where you wait for your number to be called and then get in your designated taxi. Upon arrival at your destination, you then pay the driver the fee as agreed by the agent.
Red trucks (songthaews) and tuk tuks are also an option, however if travelling with more than 2 people, it works out about the same to catch a taxi which is also more comfortable (and air-conditioned!). Uber can drop off at the airport, but cannot pickup.
