Are you flying in on Thai? They often have connecting flights through to Chiang Mai. Even if you want to take a break for few days can be arranged.

Bangkok Air most expensive.

Use Thai Airways or ThaiSmile air.

Prebook or not depends on exact date/time of arrival?

If it falls on a long Thai holiday weekend e.g.: prebook!

 

Is checked baggage more than 20 kilos?

 

ThaiSmile has 5 flights.

Genuine Thai Airways (more expensive) has another 5 flights.

ThaiSmile is the low cost offspring from Thai Airways.

Don't book ThaiSmile via Thai Airways site, more expensive.

 

Avoid "Thai Vietjet" under all circumstances.

Unreliable, bad service.

I have had a couple times when I decided to take trip at last second.

Was able to go to airport, get ticket and board flight within 30-45 minutes.

Last time, I flew with Thai Airways,  but usually go thru Bangkok Airways.

SWISS arrives at 9:35 AM?

So on a "normal" day out of high season you can risk without prebook.

 

Trying to find out about Bangkok Air (site): in the "waiting queue" since two minutes or so :wacko:

thai airv

and bangkok air are the only real options you have if arriving at 9.30am

flights leave just after mid day and one pm

air asia have a departure every hour almost but its dmk
The free shuttle that runs to and from BKK and DMK has a transfer time of anywhere from 50 minutes to two hours depending on time of day and traffic. Taxi rates between BKK and DMK or vice versa should run approximately 350-450 baht. There will be some small toll fees in addition to the fare (approx 60-65 thb)

Seems like Bangkok Air has a "sale" currently, but the website is spinning wheel waiting in the "queue". 47/48 Euro is an OK price, about 1600 Baht.
