Bangkok airport transit time

Jump to last reply

We are flying into Suvarnabhumi with an ETA of 15.55 and are looking to fly out to Chiang Mai on Air Asia at 18.35. Is 2.5 hours enough time to get through immigration and to AA check in assuming our inbound flight is on time. We will probably be travelling with hand baggage only so won't need to worry about baggage reclaim but have heard tales of very long queues at immigration. Is it possible to transit in BKK and go through immigration in Chiang Mai?

Any info or recent experience would be much appreciated.
