EurasiaFlyer 02-3-2009 9:56 AM the international sector of CNX is undergoing renovations, but the problem is: there are almost no more international connections left..... until the domestic terminal is getting a major facelift, this airport is a nuisance. no nice "business card" for the city of Chiang Mai. the only good thing is the proximity to downtown (just 3 km). do not take "Meter Taxi" when arriving, as they are rather more expensive than the comfortable "Limousine-Service" at 120 Baht fixed fare for the downotwn area. The Meter-Taxi has a flagfall of 40 Baht and a 50 Baht airport-surcharge, so u have almost reached the 120 Baht after a few meters already... and the "Meter-Taxi"-drivers (yellow-blue Sedans) are crooks, whereas the Limousine-drivers are friendly and often speak a decent english. Do NOT book hotel rooms from the counters INSIDE the baggage-claim-area, as they charge the RACK RATES. just step outside and to your right, you find some more hotel booking counters where you can get the ACTUAL recent promotion-rates. but shop around anyway, as the staff there will maybe not automatically offer you the cheapest rates. always ask for the "promotion rates" (which are available virtually 360 days a year, except NYE, and Songkhran). If you are familiar with CNX, its easy to hop on a Tuk-Tuk or Sawngthaew which had sent passengers to the airport, will cost you 40-80 Baht, depending on your bargain-skills.
