Dear friends, I'm bring my family (with 2 aged and 2 younger ones - 10yrs old) to Chiang Mai next month. Came to know, its nice going for this Khantoke dinner, some queries below:
1. why is there a great price diff between tour agencies prices? (e.g some quote 900bath, some 450batt)?
2. Chiang mai cultural center is more traditional? Food wise, same as Khum Khantoke?
3. Both Cultural center and Khum Khantoke are air-con?
4. Need to book in advance online booking before reaching chiang mai?
Can anyone suggest (or warn against) where to get Botox or Filler in Chiang Mai? There is a clinic right near Tae Phae Gate I was thinking about going to. Have you been or heard anything about it? (or anywhere else in Chiang Mai)
Dear all, my wife and I are planning to visit Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son this December. We will arrive by plane in CM at 12.30 in December 25, and fly back home from Chiang Mai at 13.20 in December 28. I understand that distance between CM and MHS is far enough, but unfortunately we an not take flight from CM to MHS and return due to tight budget. Is there any public transportation that can suit our flight schedule? If we have to stay 1 night in CM is OK, but we prefer to do it on the last night to make sure we will not miss our flight back. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.
I am planning to visit CM in January.Where is best location for cherry blossom,?

My friend and I were planning on visiting Chiang Mai in September, but now that we heard about some sort of Dengue epidemic going on there we are not sure what to do. Is it really something to be concerned about?
Does anyone know anything about the situation and the actual danger we would subject ourselves to when travelling there? How bad is the situation?
Any advice on the matter is greatly appreciated :-)
I am in Thailand for 8 days before going to Bali. I'd like to stay in Bangkok for a few days but would really like to get up to Chiang Mai, but time is limited.

from chiang mai - chiang rai (take a bus),
take bus at 9am - 12 pm ( interval distance 3 hours?? it's right??)
after reach chiang rai, want to go wat rong khun/ white temple.
and after that, my first planning is go to golden triangle (but i read, thats take 3 hours from chiang rai to chiang sen?? is't true??)...the problem, i must go to chiang mai with the last green bus at 5.30 pm
can i still go to golden triangle??? with that time???
if i can't go to golden triangle,
can anyone give recomen what interesting or unique places i can go at chiang rai, with my little bit time...
This may sound crazy - however, my friend and I live in the US where we both own Yamaha waverunners. We have been in Laos and Thailand recently and we are now interested in buying two new waverunners, in Thailand/Laos, and traveling down the Mekong River from the Golden Triangle to Mukdahon. (flexible on locations actually)
We would want to purchase the waverunners - take the trip - and then sell them back as used. We would also be looking to hire a Yamaha mechanic to try and follow along our trip with a truck with a double waverunner trailer in case we need to have repairs - or need to pull the boats out of the water. Do you know of anyone that has done this? Would it be allowed?
Not even sure where to look to find out about this.
Thanks in advance.
