Chiang Mai flights

by thesage

We are arriving in Bangkok at 14.40 and would like to catch the flight to Chiang Mai at 17.15 from Thai Air. Since our journey involves connections, we are a little concerned about our luggage not arriving on time, and would like to entertain the possibility that we may have to overnight in Bangkok.

Is it possible to buy flight tickets to Chiang Mai from Thai Air at the airport, or must be book in advance?
What are the chances of there being place on the flight at the end of September? Are these flights usually booked up?

Thank you

Hi,

Are you flying into Bangkok with Thai Air? If so then they will transfer your luggage to the connecting flight.

If not, then always book your flight in advance, as it will be a lot cheaper. Check the latest flight to your destination and when you need to check in. I would have thought that collecting luggage and checking in for a domestic flight could take a while. Will the connecting flight leave from the same airport that you are landing???

Re: Chiang Mai flights

by thesage

Yes, we are flying in with Thai Air also.
But there are other concerns that may cause us to overnight in Bangkok. We just won't know until we get there.

Any idea how I can "check the latest flight to your destination and when you need to check in"?

Yes, the connecting flight is leaving form the same airport.

When we bought the tickets, we thought we'd spend the weekend in Bangkok. Later we had the idea to continue straight on to Chiang Mai the same day, depending on the situation when we arrive. So I would have to change the ticket now (with the acquired cost), or buy the connecting ticket at the airport.

Thanks for the answers.

If you are flying on Thai, don't worry about the connection. They would not have made the booking the way it has been done if they didn't think you would make the connection. In the event that there is a problem, they would fix it. We were there in March, and in fact our flight to Thailand was in early. Had it not been so, 2-1/2 hours would have been lots of time to make the connection for us - we got off the plane and through customs in less than an hour.

Buying at the "last minute" is never a good idea - only the most expensive tickets for business or emergency travel are bought that way and your will get charged full fare

I also think you'll be fine with a 2.5 hour connection window. Thai Airways should be checking in your luggage all the way to Chiang Mai when you check-in but it wouldn't hurt to remind them that your final destination is Chiang Mai just in case they forget to check. And even if they are delayed, they'll most likely put you on the next available flight for Chiang Mai but I still think you'll be fine with the original connecting flight since you won't have to worry about luggage transfer. I think your plan is smart to continue on to C. mai since it's just a quick hop from BKK.
Anyways, have a great trip!

Go to the Thai air website for timetables and check-in times. If you have already purchased the tickets for the whole journey, you could ask them if a stayover is allowed, sometimes they charge extra but if you ask in advance they may do it free of charge,

Re: Chiang Mai flights

Sorry, I forgot to add that if you do the whole journey to Chiang Mai using the connecting flight that you have purchsed, and not doing a stopover, then you only need to check-in once, and thats from your first departure airport.

Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

Jungle Trek - Waterfall

by vigi

This is our first stop after a 2-hour trek. This waterfall is beautiful. Unfortunately, temperature is too cold to jump in for a swim. We had our lunch box here, vegetable fried rice, then continue the trek to the first village.

Have you ever seen a Panda Bear

by joyful_sun

Granted these pandas are in a zoo and not in some forest in Chengdu, but let's face it, what are the odds you'll come across one of these magnificent creatures in the wild .. or even in your hometown zoo (unless your hometown is in China).

The panda enclosure is located somewhere in the center of the Chiang Mai Zoo. The zoo is HUGE so you will need transport to get around. There is a tram that goes around, but best to bring your own wheels. You do have to pay extra for it though, Baht 50 for a car, and Baht 30 per person to enter. To see the pandas, you pay extra Baht 100 per person .. but well worth it. The only good reason to go to Chiang Mai zoo is to see the pandas.

The panda enclosure is airconditioned, spacious and very clean. Visitors have a good chance to see them upclose by arriving around 9:15 am during feeding time. The pandas are named Lin-Hui and Chuang Chuang and are on friendship loan from China.

Chiang Mai Saloon Sports Bar and Grill

by Willettsworld about Pubs and Bars

This place is all about having fun, chilling out and eating Western food that you eat back home. Their menu is a little bit of TGI Fridays, Chili's, Hooters, and Outback Steak House. Free monkey nuts and pop corn!

The Saloon is done up with rustic wood furniture, rough hewn wood walls and unique wood carvings. There are many activities in the saloon to keep you entertained. During the day choose a first run movie to watch on their 61 inch big screen TV. At night watch a live sporting event or select a video music concert to listen to. You can also while away your time by playing a game of pool.

Restaurant along Mae Ping river

by alvinpie about Gallery Bar and Restaurant

Gallery sits right next to Mae Ping River. There are quite a few other similar places on this side of the river and they all look like happening places.

Dining on the patio next to the river is a great experience. Extreme tasty, and spicy, Kontoke dinner. I especially enjoy the chili dip for vegies.

Chiang Mai Jungle Trekking - Day one

by mary2u99

I do recommend trekking if you are in Chiang Mai. My Korean friends mentioned that we should look for Eagle house to book our trekking. We booked our jungle trekking thru Eagle House as we stayed at Eagle House 2. We took the 3 day trekking.

We drove from Chiang Mai to a market outside of town and browse around for 30 minutes while the guide gets the supply of food for our trip. Then we drove an hour to a Cave. Walk in the cave with flying bats and our mascot cat… hahaha (see picture of the cat).

We had lunch here. Phat Thai noodles with some mineral water and banana. We drove for about 2 hours to Hmong/Meo hill tribe village and then walk for one hour to our overnight hut.
