Most airlines go via Bangkok, no real direct flights.

If you try again and do the seach under the 'Malaysia - English' you should get the option to fly to Bangkok then to Phuket.

You can also try 1-2-go, I think the website is 1-2-go fly from Chiang Mai to Bankgok and then to Phuket.

If you wanted to go to Samui, you could take the airasia or 1-2-go flight from Bangkok to Surat Thani and then get the boat from there.

Hope this helps :)

Hi there,

I was just in Thailand last month trying to fly from the beaches up to Chiang Mai and there is a direct flight with Thai Airways from Phuket to Chiang Mai, so they probably do the same flight in reverse. It was pretty expensive compared to Air Asia, so we just ended up catching a boat then flying from Krabi via Bangkok to Chiang Mai.

Hope this helps!
