How to come to venue
Chiang Mai International airport is 10-15 minutes to city center. There is no direct bus from airport to conference venue (Khum Phucome Hotel). We recommend you to use a metered taxi (100-200THB) or airport limousine taxi from airport to the hotel. Tuk-Tuk (3 wheels taxi) is also an option for an adventurous person because it is cheaper, but we do not recommend it.
