"Red (mini) buses & Tuk-tuks" Chiang Mai Transportation Tip by cmsong

Chiang Mai Transportation: 132 reviews and 149 photos

From airport to town - ask the guard to hail a taxi for you - MUCH cheaper than airport taxi (uses the normal car) - it'll cost us THB 100 for 2 pax.

To Doi Suthep - red "mini" buses charge THB 40/pax IF there's 8 people in the bus. We got charged THB 250 for 2 based on 4 people coz we didn't want to wait for the extra 4 pax to come along.

If you have many locations to go in 1 day and require easy transportation, hire a tuk-tuk for the day (contact details below). Our driver Ning was very reliable and friendly. Charges differ on number of locations & distance. Our driver took us to 3 different locations for THB 400 for the day.
