Travel Tips from people who've been to Chiang Mai
If it's your first time here, plan on staying longer than you originally thought you would. It's that kind of place.
Chiang Mai offers a lot for the everday traveller. There are plenty of good and cheap places to eat. If you feel brave, ignore what the guides say and try the street vendors for food. You can see it being cooked from fresh, right in front of you. There is a wide selection of hotels to cover all budgets. asiarooms.com is a good web-site to use when visiting Asia. The best time to visit is the Buddhist New Year 13-16th April, which is know throughout Thailand as Songkran. The city population (of approx 3 million) and loads of tourists, stop whatever they are doing for three or four days and have a massive waterfight. It is all done in very good humour. Hire a tuk tuk for a few hours, buy some water guns and go and enjoy yourself. There are loads of activities on the outskirts of the city, which include (but are not limited to) hot air ballooning, bunjy jumping, elephant trekking, go-cart racing, silk factory, lacquerware factory, lots of Wats (Buddhist Temples), butterfly farm and micro-light flying. If you go for Songkran, expect to get wet. When you go out in the daytime, wear stuff you don't mind getting wet. If you get dressed up to go out in the evening, wait until it's dark, otherwise the people still throw watre over you. The nightlife is whatever you want to make of it. You could go and watch a traditional Thai dance, go to a bar, enjoy a meal out in the open air night market or barter with the street vendors who are going to try and flog you cheap clothes and gifts to bring home.
