Can’t stand another 12 hours on a bus? Here’s the news you’ve been waiting for. AirAsia, famous for affordable seats and absolutely not letting you check in if you arrive 59 minutes before your flight, is opening a new hub in Chiang Mai. Direct daily flights from Singapore, Hat Yai, and Bangkok will start immediately. Routes to Hong Kong, KL, and Jakarta are in the works.
This makes it easier than ever to sink your teeth into northern Thailand’s cragging, culinary, and cultural bounty… even just for a few days. See you at the airport!
