Now it is more convenient to travel in areas of Chiang Rai than before. There are plenty of taxis available throughout the day that you can flag down or call the operators. As for the cost, there are 5 areas in Chiang Rai that the cost will be charged by fee meters that start with 30 baht and 2 baht increase for every 1 km. These areas are Tambon Wieng, Tambon Rab Wieng, Tombon Rim Kok, Tombon Sansai and Chiang Rai City Municipality area.

Besides the areas mention above, the fee will be calculated based on distance meter. For example, from the city to Wat Rong Khun, the distance meter will show 20 kms, and the cost will be 20 x 10 which become 200 baht.

Note: If a route is up-hill route such as Doi Tung, Mae Salong, Pha Tang, Phu Chi Fah, it will cost 15 baht per km. However, this condition doesn’t apply to all taxis. Some taxis will take 10 baht per km all the routes. You should check with the driver for the actual rate before taking a ride. If you want to go outside Chiang Rai territory, the fee will not be calculated based on baht per kilometer, but it will be gross charge. For example, the fee from Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai is known to be between 2,500-3,000 baht.

A taxi can drop off passengers at the airport, however, they cannot pick up passengers there.  If you wish for them to pick you up upon arrival at the airport, you must call them and arrange for them to pick you up on the road at the entrance to the airport grounds. You can take chances by walking through the airport’s car park to the road in front of the airport. Most of the time you will find random taxis standing outside the gate, waiting for passengers. This will save you at lease 50% of the fare.
