Chiang Mai Airport Taxi and Shuttle
Chiang Mai is the most visited city in the mountainous north of Thailand and the second-largest city in the country. Visitors come to see the beautiful ancient temples surrounded by moats and canals and experience the more spiritual and historic side of Thailand. It is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, with the stunning mountainous landscapes at the doorstep of the city, which are also home to elephant sanctuaries, tribal villages and breathtaking national parks.
Immerse yourself in the experience of this historic city and start your trip with a Welcome Pickups transfer straight to your hotel. You’ll have one of our friendly drivers greet you with a smile, holding a sign with your name as you exit the arrivals hall, and then they will help you carry your luggage to your pre-booked Chiang Mai airport taxi. If your flight is delayed, our drivers will be instantly notified as we provide them with your latest flight details, so they will be waiting for you at the right time.
All our drivers are also fluent in English, so during your transfer, feel free to make the most of your driver’s local knowledge and ask them any questions you might have about the city.

Directions for your taxi from Chiang Mai airport
Chiang Mai city centre also referred to as ‘Old Town’, is located about 5 km northeast of the airport. A 15-minute taxi ride will take you straight into the heart of the city. Your journey will begin initially by travelling north out of the airport for about a kilometre. Your driver will then turn east for another kilometre before turning north again. You will then head north for about 3.5 km where you will enter the Old Town area of Chiang Mai city.
Chiang Mai Airport Taxi Cost
A Chiang Mai airport transfer to the city should come at a fixed fare of €4.25 (THB 160). When the taxi pickup location is not at the airport, fares are calculated by a taximeter as follows: an initial base fee of €1.35 (THB 50) and a per km cost of €0.50 (THB 20). You’ll need to ensure your Chiang Mai taxi driver turns the taximeter on at the start of a transfer and resets it to the correct starting fare to avoid any surprises. Alternatively, for a guaranteed fixed-rate fare you can rely on, you can pre-book your Chiang Mai airport taxi with Welcome Pickups.

All of Welcome’s drivers are English-speaking, so you will be met and greeted warmly by your driver and you’ll be made to feel at home from the minute you touch down at the airport. You can also make the most of your driver’s local knowledge as you travel to your destination.
