Flights Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai

We are spending 7 nights in Chiang Mai then taking the green bus to Chiang Rai, We were looking at doing a day tour back to Chiang Mai but it looks like everything to see would have already been covered in the tours we are doing with Jermsak.

As our flight doesn't leave Chiang Mai until after 8pm I was thinking that maybe we should look at flying from C/R to C/M which would give us nearly another full day in CR rather than on the road.

The other benefit is if we catch the bus back from CR to CM we will have all our luggage (and I'm hoping there'll be plenty by the end of the trip) so we basically have to go directly to the airport.

Thank you in advance.

I'm so excited - first time to Northern Thailand, can't wait.

Bangkok, Thailand

I don't think there are any flights between those two towns.

I'm not sure that there is a flight from Rai to Mai but as the bus trip is only 3 hours, and considering you have to check in for a domestic flight one hour prior to departure, you really won't be saving a great deal of time.

No one flies that route.

Not sure of your outbound reservations/destination, but have you considered simply flying out of Chiang Rai, rather than driving back to CM Airport? Most of the same domestic carriers flying from CM also fly from CR.

Or do as we did hire a car in Chiang Mai and drive to and from Chiang Rai, it's an easy drive and you can stop off to visit where you like.
