Where do I get cheap plane tickets to go to Chiang Mai, Thailand?

 

in Chiang Mai , Thailand by @talberly 9yr  | 20 comments

Where do I get cheap plane tickets to go to Chiang Mai, Thailand? I would like to know if there is a site where the cost of the plane ticket was under $1,000. If it is offered at a price even lower, the better. I want to minimize expenses as much as possible. Iโ€™m curious to know the price of the flight ticket that digital nomads have purchased in the past and from which sites. Could you help me? Thank You.

I second suggestions that from Australia to Thailand you should look for airlines like Scoot and AirAsia. They usually have the cheapest prices.

From places further away I would recommend www.flystein.com (disclaimer - Iโ€™m a founder there). There you would hire a flight hacker who can find the best and cheapest flights on the market. From Europe or the US they can save at least a 100$ comparing to what youโ€™d find on Kayak or similar websites (but often it can be more than that). They also take into account all preferences, something a normal travel agent would do.

If youโ€™ve got plenty of free time, you could fly from NYC or Boston to Europe using a low cost carrier like Norwegian or WOWair and then fly to Bangkok using Norwegian. If booked in advance itโ€™s easy to find tickets from the east coast to Europe under 200$ all-in and the same from Europe to Bangkok. Add to that positioning low cost flights and you are in Chiang Mai for less than 500$.

Great posts above :+1:. Iโ€™ve never ventured as far as Thailand (yet) but thereโ€™s a great app called Hopper which helps you monitor flight prices. Also, Iโ€™ve found eDreams to be consistently cheaper than some of the other flight comparison websites.

Quick update since I booked flightsโ€ฆ I hired Todd with FlightFox (https://flightfox.com/todd) to search for me and he found Premium Economy and Business class tickets for less than $150 more per person (wife and I) compared to what I was looking at booking from my own searches in economy class.

He was brilliant, it cost me $49 for the search and he gave me several optionsโ€ฆ 22 hours of travel with extra leg room and champagne to Bali, coming up!

Probably the most efficient way is to get flight to Bangkok via Skyscanner or similar, and then get a low-cost ticket from Bangkok to Chiang Mai from AirAsia or NokAir directly

I would recommend using skyscanner.com, and looking for a flight that is 2-3 months ahead. I always use Etihad Airways to get to Bangkok because they undercut everybody else. Usually a one way flight to BKK is $740 - $840. Plus you get unlimited alcoholic drinks (until you get rowdy, lol), a huge selection of movies (latest releases), and quality food( I swear, they feed you like every 2 hours).

Try some of the flight comparison sights as a start, rome2rio, momondo, skyscanner, adioso. But yeah helpful to know where youโ€™re flying from! For example from Perth, Australia (where i am at the moment) the budget airlines like Scoot, AirAsia and TigerAir are always the cheapest.
Other factors like being flexible with flight dates will help keep the cost low.

What features would you like to see on Nomad List?


by @levelsio 3yr 3 years ago  | 3 comments

Hi everyone,

I would love to hear what you'd like me to build next on Nomad List, or any other product/feature feedback ideas you have.

It's been 6+ years now but I'm in this for the long term and with the boost remote work got last year it's even more exciting to work on Nomad List than ever.

Current roadmap is here: twitter.com/levelsio/status/1363204985488572417?s=20 and pbs.twimg.com/media/EusS9PKXEAUR8xp?format=jpg&name=4096x4096

The next products/features I have planned:

- ๐Ÿ›‚ Rebase: visa, residency and immigration services for remote workers

- ๐ŸŽ“Courses: learn the steps how to go remote and travel/relocate

- ๐Ÿ› Gov liaison: diplomacy services to the governments to help us lobby for nomads and for them to attract remote workers

Thanks a lot!

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

Anyone up to explore some city which is kinda virus safe?


in Bangkok , Thailand by @germanrobert 3yr 3 years ago  | 2 comments

Hello World!

I'm an experienced Digital Nomad and after being in Lockdown in Bangkok and Germany for one year I would like to team up with someone to visit a new place. Or just doing some exchange about what destinations would be interesting currently.

I take the virus seriously and still I think we can still be able to take our life in our own hands. So I'm aiming for cities/countries which are not in full lockdown, are not too complicated about immigration (I'm looking at you Thailand, your state quarantine costs like 1k USD and is basically a prison) and is also rather safe regarding the virus. I tend to stick for rather big cities and like culture. I'm not a beach or nature person. I'm pretty flexible about the money topic.

What I mean is, for example, since most of the EU has banned Americans, if I live in Guatemala and will be traveling FROM Guatemala to the EU, could I get in? Or does the ban count for all Americans regardless of where they live?

Are co-working spaces a good way to meet people in a new city?


by @donaldbough 4yr 4 years ago  | 1 comment

My fiancรฉe and I are most likely moving to NYC (maybe DC) in August, and as a technical startup co-founder I'd love to meet new people that are also into startups. Would joining a co-working space be worth the money to do this?

I work for a big tech company that has an office in NYC, but it's mainly sales so I wouldn't be able to meet others that are related to any of my 9-5 work or likely into tech.

If co-working spaces, post covid of course, aren't a good way to meet business starting people in a new city, what is?

Maybe at least there're maps for specific passports? Mine are Russian and American.

If there's no such thing, I'd be down to build one, let me know if interested to collaborate :)
