Quiet night VF?

I noted some of the prices have increased last time I was there, maybe one of our frequent fliers can correct them.

Just thought I would see how many topics I could commandeer before someone stopped me. I nearly had the whole board.biggrin.png

Far too easy. No challenge these days.

I prefer just to hire a car and have it delivered to the airport as I have to get to Chiang Saen anyway

Do you find that cheaper than using the airport taxi service or do you keep the hire car for the duration of your stay?

A question:

When I arrive at Chiang Rai airport from BKK at 09:35 (am) will there be any taxis available? Or do I have to preorder transportation or ask the hotel about airport shuttle?

Last time I visited Chaing Rai me and my (ex) Thai girlfriend arrived with a delayed Air Asia flight at 23:30 (11:30 pm) and there was no transportation available.

Luckily there was an expat lady at the airport to pickup her daughter who arrived with the same flight as us. My (OK, ex) girl friend happened to know this lady and her daughter and they where kind to give us a ride downtown Chaing Rai to the Wiang Inn hotel. The girl in the reception was kind enough to give us an Executive Suite for half the price. We had no booking since we arrived to Chiang Rai one day early from our original plan (we had booked a honeymone suite at the Phu Chai Sai resort...OK, that's another story...smile.png ).

There a couple of taxi booths there but I'm not sure what time they close.

I'm surprised to hear that not even one driver would have waited for a late plane.

There will definitely be something available at 9.30 am.

Thank you very much for your reply sceadugenga. Yeah, I guess it must be some transportation available at 9.30 am otherwise I would be very surprised. But on the other hand I've been very surprised before in the very nice and beautiful country Thailand. As I said, when we arrived at 11.30 pm there where no means of transportation at all, no taxis, no buses, no tuk-tuk's...I feel much calmer arriving early in the day. I don't fear a 10 kilometer walk but after travelling for about 20 hours I prefer to ride in style smile.png. I'm very much looking forward to visit Chiang Rai again, I love this place. Maybe I'll see you, who knows. Take care and have a good day. smile.png

Was there a couple a weeks ago, got back from Bangkok, called a metered taxi, walked outside the airport completely, I think they don't want to drive right to the front door and pick you up to avoid conflict with the airport taxis, it cost about 120 baht into town. In the airport I was offered a taxi for 400, the aw its only a few dollars attitude doesn't sit right with me.
