Open Mind Centre map

taxi / motorbike taxi

You can take a cab from walking street for 200B if you bargain a little (they may start at 300 or 250B), or a motorbike taxi (opposite the bus station) for 80 B if you don’t have much baggage (some will start at 100B).


Coming from Pai – head towards Chiang Mai on the main road for 10 km, cross the Memorial Bridge, take the first left. We are 400 m up on the left hand side – past the wat – you will see our sign on the gate on your left.

Coming from the Hot Springs – travelling the scenic route from Pai, go past the hot springs turn-off on your left, take the 1st right about 500m after the hot springs turn-off – we are just down there on your right – expand the map below for details.

Coming from Chiang Mai –

Easiest way – ask us to book you a taxi – usually 3300B, if we can get a discount we pass it on to you – its a lovely drive (2.5 hours) – or fly
Cheapest way
bus from Arcadia Bus station – Prempracha Transport – book here – tuk tuk from airport about 200B or there is a new 40B shared taxi bus service from airport to downtown – you can book a specific seat with Prempracha, and they are happier to drop you off & pick-up at the end of our street
bus from down town Chiang Mai – Aya Service – book here – they may be able to pick you up at your hotel or the airport – you will need to check this with them for your schedule
Quickest way – fly – check schedule here

Coming by bus – if you ask the driver, buses will usually drop you off at the Ban Tha Pai road (the last one on the right before the WWII bridge, 10 km before you get to Pai). Landmark: the turn-off is immediately after the 10km post – if you see you are on a large new concrete bridge with an older iron bridge next to you on your right, you have gone just 50m too far. We are 400m easy walk from the main road.

Leaving by bus Open Mind Centre to Chiang Mai – buy your ticket the previous day or earlier at the bus station in Pai – let them know where you would like to be picked up – at the Ban Tapae corner, about 50m after the Memorial Bridge.

Pai pick-up and drop off for evening events only – We can often pick you up from the Bridge next to Pai School and Don’t Cry bar 1/2 hour before evening events for a small fee, currently 70B – if you book at least 1 day ahead. Currently only available for classes, workshops, events etc that start or finish after 6.30pm. We will drop you back afterwards. Important – please check the pick up time & location when you book.
