HGAT Guide to Chiang Mai
Having been in BKK for a couple of days, we caught a domestic flight via Thai Lion Air to Chiang Mai (CNX) from the DMK airport. Leaving BKK at 10:15am, the entire journey took 1h15m meaning we had a whole day to spend in this relaxed city.
Although the flight was straightforward with no delays, it was at baggage drop when I came to realise that Thai Lion Air is the Asian equivalent of Easyjet, and I felt inner dread when I looked down at my 25kg suitcase upon being told we were only allowed 10kg each.
We ended up wearing half our suitcase on the plane! What. a. Nightmare.
WHERE TO STAY
Landing in Chiang Mai International Airport, it was a short and sweet 20 minute journey to get to our new home, Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel. Found using Mr&Mrs Smith, BW had booked this boutique hotel located just across the river from the city.
