Tuk Tuk

by Amis_Amis

I will be going on a backpacking trip to Chiang Mai and would like to know if the local transport Tuk Tuk is a good mode of travelling between places. Assumming i am in the city centre, how far will the Tuk Tuk go? Will the Tuk Tuk go to the elephant training centre which are in the outlying area i believe. Where are the sort of places that the Tuk Tuk will not go or not allowed to go? How fast (at a safe speed) can it go?

I might want to try staying in Belle Villa Resort Chiang Mai which is in the outlying area (Hang Dong district), do you know if the Tuk Tuk will go to this resort and if it is possible to hail/call for a Tuk Tuk from the resort area? Is it going to cost a lot for a Tuk Tuk trip like this?

Is there any recommended tuk tuk driver with contactable email/phone?

Thanks much for any valuable advice.

Tuk tuks really only operate in the built up areas of Chiang Mai. There is some control over the taxi service's scope of operation as well - they have designated areas. The best method for getting to elephant training places, such as Maesa is by songthau, which you can hire in the town for negotiated prices for specific visits, or half or whole day travelling. They will still pick up locals a lot of the time, but its an efficient way of getting around.

But they are only able to go fixed distances, so the thrill of a songthaew has to do.

The cheapest way to get around in Chiang Mai is 'Song Tail' similar to tuk tuk but not as fancy, you can go as far as you can with a affortable price, you can check them out by the train station, or ask the hotel staff to arrange for you , please note those have lots of brochure in the car tend to be more expensive and may drive you to outlets for commision

Hi Tuk Tuk and taxi are very cheap and will take you to most places, always get a quote, you will then see how cheap. When we were there last year my wife and 4 of her friends took a taxi (van type)to elephant park, hill tribe etc including Thai lunch at his mother's house and it was less than Au$10 each (approx 300 baht)for a 5 hour tour. Hope this helps.You are welcome to view my CM pages.
Good Luck, Mike

Ning 085 175 4351 in Chiang Mai. Has his own tuk tuk and car.
In city tuk tuk is fine. The fumes are not pleasant or wind or driving long distances or fast.
So stay with tuk tuk and get car or red taxi for other.

Why stay out of town? Cost of transport and limited activities. Best to stay in area when everything is accessible.

Would recommend booking condo for several nights at HS4 thru retire-on-550-month.com
Great location, pool, fitness centre, dvd and movies and balcony.

Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

Proper Buddhist Temple Etiquette

by iNorv9

While many tourists often regard Buddhist temples as great photo opportunities, many also fail to properly respect them as places of worship. Here are a few basic tips for proper temple etiquette:

1) Dress properly. Clothing (for both men and women) should cover the shoulders and knees. This means no tank-tops or short skirts. T-shirts should be fine. Occaisionally some well visited sites have "cover clothing" for rent.

2) Always remove your shoes before entering the temples.

3) The feet are considered the 'lowest' part of the body, so avoid pointing them towards other people and especially any altars or Buddha images

4) Women should never touch monks! Do not even hand out something to them directly. Just use an intermediary, or place an item on a table.

By following these simple guidelines you'll still be able to appreciate the beauty of Thailand's temples, and now the local worshipers will appreciate you right back.

Beautiful Paintings

by KevinMichael about street vendor selling paintings

A number of artists sell artwork in places throughout Chang Mai. I found this artist working next to one of the temples I visited.

The artwork is cheap in regards to what a westerner might pay for art. I spent only a few dollars for one
of her brightly orangish-yellowish paintings. A few hundred Thai Baht.

Ben....Chiang Mai Tour Guide

by aussiejen

If you're looking for a driver while in Chiang Mai I suggest giving Ben a call or drop him an email before you get there.
He was recommended to us by our lovely tuk tuk driver, Thip.
Ben is terrific as a guide. He's a Dane who has lived in Chiang Mai for a few years. He speaks English, Thai, Scandinavian and German.
His prices are more than reasonable for day trips in his 4wheel drive.

Best Chinese Food in Chiang Mai

by DarkRay about Gia Tong Heng Restaurant

Do not let its plain outer facade fool you. Gia Tong Heng is the oldest and most established Chinese restaurant in Chiang Mai, and for a good reason too - it's food is delicious and affordable.

The restaurant is split into 2 sections, with the more upmarket ambience and comfortably air-conditioned area situated deep within from the front entrance shown.

All the classic Chinese dishes are available and even Thai favourites such as Tom Yam Seafood Soup.

Prices are of course somewhat more expensive than street fares, but still very reasonable. A very good meal can be had for about 400 baht per person. Both the hot and cold hor'dourves, which include a selection of their most popular appetizers makes a good prelude to a delicious meal.

Museum of World Insect and Natural Wonders

by bradbeaman

Display of 436 species of Thai Msquitoes. 24 of the species were discovered by the museum co-founder.

The founders Mr. Manop and Dr. Rampa are proud to refer to their museum as the “worlds quirkiest museum” full of true eccentricities.

You find a collection of insects (4,668 species), seashells, stones, fossils, coins and stamps.
