I'll be renting car from Avis and driving from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai in January. Will require GPS or Google Maps to visit these places:
Le Meridien Chiang Rai

Wat Phra Keow
Baan Si Dam (พิพิธภัณฑ์บ้านดำ)
Chivit Thammada Cafe
Chiang Rai Clock Tower
Haad Chiang Rai (หาดเชียงราย)

I can buy the Thai SIM card with Data Plan in order to use Google Maps (I already found and saved all the above locations in "My Maps" inside the Google Maps of my iPhone.
