How to Get to the city from Chiang Rai International Airport (CEI)

By Public Transportation / Shuttle Bus Service

Public transportation from the airport have returned to service since the beginning of December 2023 where the shuttle bus station is at the right-wing of the arrival building when you go out, with a fare of 28 THB throughout the line, stopping at 10 Stops, including at King Mengrai Monument (stop no. 4), where passengers can request to go down Sri Kerd Road in front of Baan Mai Kradan Hostel. The shuttle bus also runs through important stops such as Bus Terminal 1, Night Bazaar, Central Plaza Chiang Rai. and ends at Bus Terminal 2.

Tip: Returning to the airport from our hostel, you have to walk across to get Srikerd road and wait in front of the Forestry Department on Singhaklai Road.


By Taxi Meter

From the left side of the arrival-hall building, you can find a line of taxi meter which costs around 160-180 baht (10 baht per km with 40 baht of extra charge from Mae Fah Luang - Chiang Rai International Airport (CEI Airport) to go city areas.

In addition, when you would like to go from hostel to the airport, we suggest to use GRAB application to book for a car, rather than using taxi meters.

Note: The taxi meters are managed by a local company, Chiang Rai Taxi, where you can also contact their call center +66 (0)53 793 555, +66 (0)53 601 622 everyday for 24 hours for taxi booking services to get taxi booking from city or around the city areas. Pick-up time normally takes around 20-30 mins (upon your location), but it could take much longer during high seasons, so booking in advance is recommended!

By Rental Car

If you book for a rental car, from the CEI airport just drive toward Phaholyothin road, then turn right at "Por Khun Meng Rai" Monument to Uttarakit Road, then turn RIGHT at the first traffic light (API Square at your left hand side) to go to Srikerd road. Our hostel is located on your RIGHT side just around 20 meters from the junction.
