      Chiang Rai or Chiang Mai?

      Chiang Rai Nov 23, 2014 at 7:23 PM

      We are starting our South East Asia vacation in northern Thailand. I had planned on spending 3 days in Chiang Rai as I had already been to Chiang Mai. But we have limited mobility so will not be trekking; is there enough to see and do in Chiang Mai, or should we go back to Chiang Mai, which I liked?

      Driving fr Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai& Back

      Chiang Mai Nov 25, 2014 at 3:57 PM

      We plan to rent a car and drive from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai, stay 2 nights at Le Meridien CR, then drive back to Chiang Mai.
      1. Would anyone be able to recommend anything to see along the way, please?
      2. Or anywhere to go while in Chiang Rai? I plan to have long lunch at Chiang Rai Beach at least, visit the night market and some restaurants.. Not planning to drive to the Golden Triangle since I've been and it wasn't that interesting for me.
      3. Or anywhere to go by car in or nearer to Chiang Mai the day we get back? Returning the car the next day..

      Thanks,
      Mel

      Is the last week of Feb-March the busy season?

      Chiang Mai Nov 21, 2014 at 11:45 PM

      Heading to Chiang Mai February 26, 2015. Do I need to pre-book a hotel? I was sort of thinking of checking them out in person but if that is a busy tourist time,I will pre-book! Or maybe it is safe to book a few nights in advance and then look around further? Any ideas?

      How dangerous is it to get to Umphang ?

      by soundchaseruk Online Now Jan 7, 2011 at 5:29 AM

      I have read my Rough guide and see comments on Youtube videos that the road to Umphang is pretty dangerous, although spectacular.

      I am going mid May so is it a safe journet to make ?

      The area certainly looks well of the main tourist tracks which appeals to me.

      Trecking tours to Thi Lo Su waterfall

      by christine.j Online Now Feb 6, 2006 at 9:14 AM

      And another question, there might be even more to come.
      My son was looking for trecking tours to the Thi Lo Su waterfall, but the only ones he found were 10 day tours. He won't have enough time for this. Are there any trecking tours to the waterfall and the Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary that are only 3 or 4 days?
      Can he book these tours in Umphang?
      The tours he read about consisted of trecking for a short distance, then relaxing for several hours. Are these tours so exhausting that you need to relax after one or two miles?
      Once again, I'd appreciate any information. Thank you.

    • Trekking with kids

      by jbslc Online Now Oct 3, 2004 at 11:32 PM

      I will traveling with my family to Thailand in June and am trying to select the best trekking location. We would like to get off the beaten track a bit but will be traveling with our kids ages 6&8. They are good travelers and pretty good hikers but we are concerned that perhaps Umphang is too difficult. Any input? Thanks.
