AirAsia begins direct flights Taipei and Chiang Mai



Hideous flight times. Leave Taipei at 2.30 am, arrive back at 2 am.


Advantages: no traffic, no need to ask for days off at the office.


Has anyone filed with air Asia? They have so many cheap flights here in Malaysia all over SE Asia.


I once filed with Air Asia to Singapore and back. They’re not bad if you are small and have no legs.


I’ve flown AirAsia many times. Basic services but seats and staff are good. Short flights around Asia anyway.

I even like the Night-Time flights 1 not wasting daylight hours travelling and 2 avoiding traffic when hitting the big cities.

Just have to prepare your plans and hotels to match.


Fly Friday night, fly back Sunday night. Go to the office having missed two nights of sleep.

On the plus side, it is Chiang Mai.
