Are there currently restrictions on travel to Chiang Rai related to COVID-19?

Yes, there are currently restrictions on flights to Chiang Rai along with the rest of Thailand. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Thailand has restricted the entry of foreign nationals except permanent residents, parents, spouses and children of Thai nationals and residents, students, airline crew with a scheduled return flight, and those with a work permit until at least October 31. Emergency landings, humanitarian aid flights, medical or relief flights, repatriation and cargo flights, state or military aircraft, and technical landings without disembarkation may still enter the country. To enter Thailand, all travelers must have a fit-to-fly health certificate, a medical certificate indicating that they have tested negative for COVID-19 (RT-PCR test) within 72 hours before departure, either (a) a certificate from their parent agency/authority confirming that it will cover all medical expenses OR (b) proof of health insurance covering all medical expenditure, including for COVID-19, up to USD $100,000 minimum, and a Certificate of Entry issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Travelers suspected of carrying COVID-19 may be denied entry into the country. In addition to the above, permanent residents or work permit holders and their family members, students, and those seeking medical treatment must have a Certificate of Entry issued by the Royal Thai Embassy or the Royal Thai Consulate-General in their country of departure to enter Thailand. Travelers with an urgent need to travel to Thailand should contact the Thai embassy or consulate in their country of departure at least 10 working days before their proposed date of travel to explain their circumstances. They will also need to provide a copy of their confirmed booking at an ASQ hotel, and either a copy of their work permit (if it is already expired, the employer should contact the Ministry of Labour to issue a WP3), a copy of letter of permission to work in Thailand from a Thai government agency (such as the Ministry of Labour, the Ministry of Education, BOI) or a copy of the Certificate of Residence. All travelers to Thailand are required to complete 14 days quarantine at a State Quarantine or Alternative State Quarantine (ASQ) facility. The validity of all temporary visas has been extended until October 31, 2020. . If you are looking to book a trip to Chiang Rai and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about traveling during COVID-19.

From November to February during the high season, the temperature is cool. It often drops to 68 degrees Fahrenheit and for Thai people this is very cold, for visitors, it tends to be just about perfect. During the hot season, March to May, temperatures rise to 97 degrees while the monsoon season provides a little sunshine but mostly rain and mist. Festivals take place throughout the year such as the Lychee Fair, King Men Rai Festival, Vesak Day, Loy Kratong and of course the exciting water festival, Songkran.

The cheapest time to visit Chiang Rai is during the low season between June and August, when the weather is cooler. It’s the ideal time to take the kids too as many children will be on vacation from school. Thailand also has national holidays which is a great opportunity to mingle with the locals and get a taste of real Thai life.

Chiang Rai overview

Chiang Rai is in the north of Thailand and quite a small, quiet place to visit. The town and surrounding countryside is great to explore during a vacation. When traveling to this once capital of the Lanna Kingdom, enjoy a hill tribe tour, unique wild life and visit the Golden Triangle. This is where Thailand, Burma and Laos all meet. Chiang Rai is now very popular with vacationers from around the world who like to experience traditional and rural lifestyles. There’s plenty going on in Chiang Rai with beautiful temples to contemplate in, fabulous markets, great restaurants and a vibrant night life. One of the most iconic landmarks is the amazing Clock Tower. It’s situated in the downtown area and was built to honor the King. At 7pm, 8pm and 9pm it comes to life with an impressive light and sound display. The White Temple or Wat Rong Khun is also a must-see. This temple is all white and looks like frosting off a cake. Chiang Rai may be a relatively small destination but has a huge heart, especially with the friendly people who make visitors more than welcome. There are hills to climb, long tail boat trips on the Mae Nam Kok to Tha Ton and bamboo rafting to enjoy. For the less energetic, relax at your hotel or outside a bar and just watch the world go by.

Getting around Chiang Rai

Getting from the Airport to the City

Chiang Rai Airport (CEI) is small and just over six miles from the city’s downtown area. There are plenty of songthaew, taxis and tuk tuks to take you to your accommodations. Do remember to ask for a price before getting on board and barter for a discount, great fun. Ask your driver if he or she would take you on a tour of Chiang Rai once you’ve settled in. This shouldn’t cost too much and is a wonderful way to see what this jewel in the North has to offer visitors.
