Location of Nan Nakhon Airport

Arriving at Nan Nakhon Airport

First you will have to walk over the platform to the terminal. There is only 1 entrance, so not worry. And there is only 1 belt for the luggage. And while you are waiting, next to the luggage belt are toilets. When you walk into the arrival hall you will see on your left hand first a Coffee Shop and then 3 car-rental companies (Avis, Kan Car Rental and Thai Rent A Car) and 2 taxi-transport companies (mini-vans). At the exit of the arrival hall are ATM's to get some Thai Baht, but I assume you had that already. When exiting the arrival hall you will be offered transport to town by Meter-Taxi's (not sure if they will use the meter), Motorbike-Taxi's (fixed prices), Song-Teauws (fixed prices) and even bicycles from Air Asia (free).

For Air Asia you can check-in and get your boarding card (if you do not have check-in luggage) with machines at the entrance of the terminal. You check-in luggage is checked after the check-in counter (wait until you see your bag passing).
