Re: night market hotel

by SirHalberd

I know you can walk to the night market from this hotel because I have done it a few times. I think this location is better because it is not in the middle of that circus. Montri Hotel. Close to restaurants, travel agencies for tours, internet shops, A. M./P.M. type stores, cooking schools, massage schools, etc. This hotel is across from the Thapae Gate where they have flea market sales with some of the same items on sale at cheaper prices than the night market. All rooms have air, hot water, private toilets, TV and maid service.

Best place is look is at www.tripadvisor.com
You get some really honest comments there.
There are many choices of hotels for travllers on a budget, most u can just arrive and check-in for a room. I find the Royal Princess hotel on Changkan road right in the middle of the night market is a fairly reasonably priced hotel. "The Small Hotel" (it's the name of the hotel) on Tapae road, which is right off the edge of the night market is a lovely modern apartment style hotel too, again, at a reasonably rate. The added bonus of this placeis, it is right next to the famous Raming Tea House, serves fantastic local tea and coffee and other refreshement, in a lovely colonial setting. Look them uop on the internet, you will be glad u did some homework beforehand.

Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

Local crafts

by solopes

In all packed tours we have to visit a few factories clearly prepared tor tourist and guide commissions.

In Chiang Mai it looked a little bit different - as we were a small group we were taken from a small workshop t another covering all the popular activities, without the pressure to buy, and the opportunity to a close and nice contact with the workers. It was the best crafts tour I made in a package tour.

Mosquito Repellent for Jungle Trekking

by mary2u99

Light backpack for your wallet, mineral water, camera and sunscreen lotions.
Sandals, flip-flops are good for city. If you are going for trekking do bring a good walking shoe or boots, lots of mosquito repellent.( with Deet 50% or 30%).

Light cotton shirt, t'shirt, shorts and bermudas. My Korean friend was so excited when she saw this shirt. Of course I did not know why and she told me this is the shirt used by Korean army a long time ago and its strange that they sold it at the bazzar.

Good example what a Night Bazar is

by Lyda1973 about Night bazar

After have seen all those night bazar in Bangkok, I've to tell that this night bazar is excellent!!!, very clean, people is nicer and not so agressive, there were a wide variety of products and articles, painters, and a very organized food court. I saw also a shopping mall with paintings, handicrafts, games, food, pewter, woodcarving, beautiful, an excellent opcion to spend a while at night, then you can go for dinner at Irish Pub or simply in the market for more authentic food. The thing that I don't recommend is the reflexology in the street, the ladies are looking for everything but not for your foot.

Nice view from the mountain

by PS_Lee81

Wat Phra Doi Suthep is situated on a mountain at the west of the Chiang Mai city. According to the legend, the King chose the spot where the white elephant carrying the sacred relics died.

You have to take a public or charter songthaew up to the mountain. We went in a group of 8, so we charter a songthaew from our guesthouse for THB 500 (2 ways). I figured it out to be cheaper than taking public songthaew if you're travelling in a group. Then there are another 300(+?) steps up to the wat, or using the tram is you are lazy enough... I'm not sure how much the tram cost as we were brought right to the steps. Along the steps, there are the body statues of the 'Naka' (dragon-like creature without any leg) which is said to be the protector of the Buddha when he got the englightment... I think it wasn't that tiring climbing up the stairs as we took a lot of photos along the way. As for the entry fee, it is free is you are Thai, but for foreigners, you will be charge THB 30 per person to enter the wat.

The wat is amazing... There is a big golden pagoda in the main hall and i can see a lot of peoples praying and asking for amulet. You can go forward to the monk and ask for amulet, which was some strings tight to your wrist. It is believed to bring good luck to you. Remember to donate in the return favor.

Outside the wat, there are a lot of bells hanging around the main hall. I'm not sure what are the bells for but they make up a nice background if you took photo from certain angle. At the backyard, there is a viewing deck where you can catch the best view of Chiang Mai city and the airport from the mountain. But you also have to be lucky because they said the pollution rate in Chiang Mai is getting worse and worse and most of the time what you can see is only the hazardous air...
