Chiang Mai / Chiang Rai* border crossing+

by eagle05

Is it better staying in Chiang Rai as it seems closer to the border.
Any suggestins for areasonable Hotel where one could easy after a few days move and and probably come back.
Many thanks

Lots of hill tribes in Northern Thailand. The Karen come from Burma, hence the connection. I'm not sure why you need to go to Lao for that. We were there in March and spent three days / 2 nights trekking and stayed at a Karen and Pulong village. We did all of our travel out of Chiang Mai.

Also did the elephant thing (go where we did, and you'll have a totally different appreciation for them). A few short videos from our trip are on my homepage.

Hi,
if you're looking for Karen people you won't find them in Laos. As previous poster said they're from parts of Burma but they live in kind of Karen villages in Thailand and refugee camps. So if you need to see them you will be able to do so in Northern Thailand ( 'long-neck' Karen live in set up village near Mae Hong Son).
In Laos you have plenty of 'tribes', some are the same like in Thailand, Burma, China, Vietnam, Cambodia and some different.
Elephant trekking isn't that popular in Laos like it is in Thailand and you don't find this things in every place. If you go to Luang Prabang there's elephant village though. Another place famous for elephants is in Sayabouly province, especially in Hongsa where they can provide you with that kind of trekking + there are quite few hill tribes there.

In the end - for the things you asked about it's easier to see them in Thailand as it's part of tourist industry there - and thus much easier to organize your activities around that. In Laos is kind of different, more authentic somewhat.

Have a nice stay,
Vesna

Elephant safari and rafting in the rainforest

by allthai

I live in Chiang Mai so when friends visit I always take them on this trip.

We first traveled to the Friends of the Asian Elephants Conservation Center and Hospital in Lampang. We learned that veterinarians treat sick elephants free of charge. This is also where old elephants can live out the rest of their lives.

Then on to Sukhothai for the evening. The next morning we walked among the ruins in the UNESCO World Heritage Park in Old Sukhothai and departed for Umphang, stopping for lunch in Mae Sot. Overnight was at a resort in Umphang in nice cabins.

The next morning we boarded the raft for a leisurely 3-hour journey through canyons with high limestone cliffs and many waterfalls. We then traveled by 4-wheel drive to the forestry camp, then walked to Thee Lor Su Waterfalls, the largest in Thailand. Here we had lunch, then started our 3-hour leisurely walk through bamboo forest and along a beautiful stream with many colorful birds, butterflies and wildflowers. Dinner and evening was in a Karen Village.

Next day we rode elephants and hiked over the mountain and through the rainforest and across the river to another Karen village for overnight. We had an excellent all you can eat family style Thai dinner prepared.

This morning we experienced 4 hours of exciting whitewater rafting. We passed many beautiful waterfalls and wild animals such as gibbons, lemurs, and deer while rafting to our campsite, stayed overnight in comfortable tents and had a delicious dinner beside the river.

next morning we rode elephants and hiked for 4 hours to reach our camping spot along a clear stream with small waterfall excellent for wading and swimming. We camped overnight here.

Next morning we walked and rode elephants for about 2 hours to our pickup point, then returned to Umphang to shower and lunch, then on to Mae Sot for the evening before returning to Chiangmai.

Traditional-ish English Pub ...

by Tusitala about The Red Lion

The Red Lion is smack bang in the middle of the Night Bazaar, so if you're fed up with shopping it's a great place to take the load off your feet and get some fluids (and food) into you. Mainly tourist crowd, but a few expats too.

Half indoors, half outdoor seating, so good spot to enjoy the fresh (?) air and watch the passing parade of people and tuk tuks.

Huge range of beers: all the locals of course, but then some more exotic full bodies lagers, and even a wine list.

Pub grub includes the usual suspects, plus some Thai favourites too. Looks English, feels English, but a distinctly Thai flavour to the fun and sometimes cheeky service. Whatever.

We Didn't Eat, We Grazed!

by nancyw about Riverside Cafe

We'd read about the Riverside Restaurant on the web and in guidebooks and so were a bit reluctant to dine in a "tourist" place. We're glad we went, though. Yes, it was packed with tourists, but also locals. The food was good, the prices reasonable and the scenery excelent.

Set on the banks of the Ping river, be sure to arrive just before sunset. You'll be able to snag a table by the water and enjoy the sunset and view while sipping a cold drink.

We tried both Thai and international options and weren't disappointed. There are two good reasons this place gets so much press - ambiance and good food!

Natures wonders

by RAINBOWWINGS

A visit to the Doi Inthanon National Park was one of the nicest things about Chiang Mai. This amazing park almost 100kms west of Chiang Mai city is home to some of the most amazing waterfalls in Thailand. You need to have a head for heights and a steady foot to negotiate the steep steps that are cut into the limestone and run down the side of the waterfalls. Cooling spray refreshes your face as you finally come to stand in awe of their magnificance. Not only is this park truly beautiful but it is also on Thailands tallest mountain, a cool 2565mts above sea level and is the home to the Meo and Karen hilltribes. High above the jungle treetops stand the majestic stupas of Phra Mahathat Chedi Nophamethanidol and Phra Mahathat Noppholbhumisiri donated to the King and Queen from the Thai Airforce.
