Using Uber in Chiang Mai, Thailand
In Chiang Mai, Thailand, Uber rides cost between $1-2. That was amazing. The ride to the airport was a flat rate of 150THB (about $4.25USD). It’s very difficult to walk on the street there because the sidewalks are small and run down. Crossing the street is an adventure too. There’s a lot of traffic.
With the official airport taxi at Chiang Mai, all rides into the city were a flat rate of 160THB. It’s 150THB flat rate with Uber.
After I purchased a Thai SIM card I was given a Thai phone number. With that Thai phone number I created a new Uber account and used a referral code from my main account. The Thai Uber sign up gave me 2 free rides on my new account and a $20 credit on my U.S. account. That’s a big win for purchasing a $3.80 SIM card!
