In the opposite direction, flights will leave China at 11.50 pm and arrive back to Chiang Rai at 03.05 am the following day. Hangzhou is one hour ahead of Chiang Rai. Thus flying time is about 4 hours 15 minutes each way.

AirAsia Thailand CEO, Santisuk Klongchaiya, said, “Our international network from Chiang Rai continues to go from strength to strength. Chiang Rai has become a well known Thai destination for Chinese visitors thanks to its fantastic tourism and cultural offerings and a unique way of life. We hope to be able to attract more Chinese tourists to Chiang Rai, as well as allow Chiang Rai locals to visit Hangzhou, China.”

Hangzhou is the capital of China’s Zhejiang province, the southern terminus of the ancient Grand Canal waterway, which originates in Beijing. Hangzhou’ s natural landscape attracts visitors from across the world. It’s a uniquely green city, and the blend between nature and civilization is something to behold.
