Getting there and away

Chiang Mai airport is located about 2 kilometres southwest of the city centre. If you feel up to it, you can consider walking to the airport, which takes you about 45-60 minutes. A ride by songthaew or tuk-tuk, doesn't take very long, and also is not too expensive.

Getting around

Getting around is fairly easy. At the entrance your bags are scanned for security reasons. Checking in is done at ground level. The security check is located on the second floor. In case of an international flight, make it easy on yourself and have the papers for leaving Thailand with you (you will have been provided these when you entered Thailand). Lines at passport check can be long at peak times, and standing in line twice, because you don't have this slip of paper, is something you don't want to do.
