Chiang Mai airport is TINY! Go early!

  • Head to the airport at least 2-3 hours before your flights if you are traveling during peak season (Xmas, April, November)
  • There is security check going into the airport, they check all bags
  • The security after checking in only had 2 lines and 2 screens, and the staff are quite slow
  • The passport control also is very slow. They open more windows sometimes if the lines get too long, but still, very very slow.
  • We travelled mid Feb so not really peak peak season (but lots of chinese as they are finishing their New year holidays) and it took us 1 full hour after checkin to being at the gates
