If you’re going to Nan from Chiang Mai, check out how to get there easily and safely.
There are a couple of options. Here are the best ones.
From Chiang Mai to Nan by bus
You can get to Nan from Chiang Mai by bus. The trip takes 7 hours. The buses leave the Chiang Mai main bus station a few times per day. A ticket costs 200 Baht.
You can purchase your ticket straight at the station, or buy it online using 12GoAsia, which I highly recommend.
From Nan to Chiang Mai by plane
Nan has its own airport. It’s very small and it operates only a few flights per day. Unfortunately, there are no direct flights from Nan to Chiang Mai, but you can buy a ticket with a short stop in Bangkok. You’ll find tickets on AirAsia.
