Arriving at Chiang Mai airport

If you arrive by plane you can take a taxi to my place for about 150 baht. If the taxi-driver doesn't know Paapuhouse, you could give him the address (98 Chaiyapoom Road), or say he should be driving to "Spicy, the nightclub": Paapuhouse is 100m north of this club.

The cheapest way to come here is by bus, it will cost about 20 baht. Let the driver stop at Ratvithi Road, that is the first stop after 'Tha Phae Gate", the eastern gate of the old town of Chiang Mai. Or if you want to be sure, just get out at Tha Phae Gate, from there it is a walk of about 500m to the north.

You could also just jump into one of these red shared pickup taxis. Leave the arrival hall and you will find the red songthaews scattered in front of the terminal.
The fare is 40 Baht to any destination in the Old City. And of course taxidrivers will try to tell you a different story 'no no, private is 200 baht, etcetera": just walk away to the next Songthaew and share the taxi with other passengers.
