Starting to get scared of coming to Chaing Mai

if I arrive and the first taxi I get into turns around with a smile and says "that'll be 800 baht to Nimman"

They have fixed prices at the airport, it'll not be 800 baht more like 150-200.

Chiang Mai, compared to Bangkok, Pattaya, and Phuket is very tame; however, always use your common sense.

Airport taxi guys  will try to get you to pay Newbie prices, but just counter with "neung loi baht die mai" (100 baht okay) - then settle for 150 - 200b baht (loi hah sip).

Get the free airport open electric shuttle bus (ask Information counter where it stops) to airport plaza mall (2 minutes away) and get a taxi from there after grabbing something to eat/drink in airport plaza....most people have basic English, you are not hitting a wall of no English as can happen in poorer remote places. Get Grab app on your phone and get an Grab taxi even...

From airport plaza probably 80 Baht.

 

RELAX ! I was a bit para on my first trip to Thailand nearly 20 years ago.

Yes, that will help him get his wallet emptied 4sure.

 

With his NEWB in Thailand facial expression (trying to overlay a poker face over confusion and worry..all-in-1) ...better yet, don't leave CM airport and domestic flight down to Pat and RING THE BELL at busiest part of night....
