Hotel Suggestions?

by cl3150

I will be in Chiang Mai in early February, and would appreciate getting some recommendations for a nice, well-located hotel. The suggestions I have already been given are the Four Seasons, The Sheraton, the Ratchamankha, the Imperial Mae Ping, the Dusit, the Puri Punn, the de Naga, the Mandarin Oriental, and the Oriental Siam. If anyone has stayed at any of these places anad can give me some feed-back to help me make a decision, I would be most appreciative.

Thanks.

Have stayed at the Mae Ping, lots of group tours stay there, was not impressed, breakfast which was included was poor in my opinion. You might look at the Empress, older hotel but very nice.

I like Ramming Lodge. Strange name, but good location. Good value. Near bars (good / bad thing?) and a stroll to night market.

The Chiang Mai Plaza hotel was great value and is really nicely situated,within walking distance of major sights. Hotels on the river are nice,but you then need to take a tuk tuk to many places. Check out this hotels website..I would rate it a very good 3 star hotel

Regards

Mike

Imperial Mae Ping is excellend friendly service, this was one of the best experience. the only commands was the party music in the garden too loud, there was a group, but the hotel has too noticed that there are other guests too in the hotel. thank you for your total good service.

Hope you like it!!

Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

Jungle Kids

by vigi

Here are the kids of the first village we visited. Well, these kids are spoiled, with too many tourists visits. The first thing they speak to me was Au-Bu-U-Ja, which means hello, good morning, good bye, how are you. All in one word. Immediately after that, they asked me for candies. If you want to give them candies, prepare a whole pack, if you try to give them bit by bit, like me, don't work. They'll attack you! Attack your pocket, attack your hands... until they make sure there's no more candies left with me!

Not exactly a beach but the next best thing

by riproy

Just outside the city on the northeast? side there is a reservoir that is used for swimming and windsurfing. It is a great place to go on a hot day to cool off. The shores are lined with bamboo seating areas shaded by thatch roofs where you can sit and order food from the passing vendors - there are many. You can sit relax or cool off in the water. It is a little silty, but who cares? You can rent inner tubes and just float away the afternoon with your mates. We used to throw a tennis ball around. It was always a good time, a perfect lazy afternoon.
It is a few km outside of town, so you will need transport of some sort, a bicycle will do just fine.

Cheap Tuk Tuks

by chellibean

As a tourist (or a non-thai-speaking person) the tuk-tuk drivers will charge you more. The people of thailand seemed to "adopt" my friends and I. They would help us get a tuk-tuk and the cost would be a fraction of the cost. If you are getting help from a local, and need to travel a bit of a distance, ask if they will help you get a tuk-tuk.

Burgers, Hotdogs, Chili until 3AM

by June.b about Mike's Burger

.
After eating local food for more almost 2 weeks, the dining experience got a bit monotonous.

So to break the cycle even for a day, we decided to go "american", READ: fastfood!

Mik'es Burger is one of those popular and really good-tasting burger in town. It's located on the corner of Chiang-Moi Road near the Moat. Very popular among expats and foreign tourists.

It's a big open-air stand with about 6 to 8 stools serving juicy hamburgers, chili dogs, fries, while watching the traffic goes by.

Chiang Mai Cooker School, A number one!

by Waxbag

The Chiang Mai Thai Cookery School is the oldest and most reputable cooking school in Chiang Mai with internationally renowned chef, Sompon Nabnian. You can sign up for a one to five day course. Each course runs from 10am to 4pm. Each day we learned how to make 6 dishes including a soup, salad, appetizer, curry dish, quick stir-fry, and desert. We were given a recipe book that has a detailed description of how to make each dish with a photo glossary and descriptions of all ingredients and substitutes that may be used in our country. There are even side recipes on how to make curry paste and sauces as well as preparation for rice and noodles. Instruction began in the morning with an activity such as vegetable carving for garnishing, an introduction to Thai spices and herbs for cooking and their medicinal values, and making fresh curry paste with fresh and dried ingredients in a mortar and pestle. Before we made each dish an instructor went step by step on how to make it. The instructors are all very witty and have a great sense of humor. They make the classes not only interesting but fun. Once their dish is complete we taste it to know what we are striving to create and then we make the dish at our own cooking stations fully equipped with a gas stove, cutting board, and all necessary utensils and ingredients. We do the preparation and cooking of our own dishes with our own hands even though our instructors may be jumping up and down if we burn something like our curry paste. We usually ate the first dish after we cooked it but ate the next three during lunch around 2pm. Everything is laid out for the students before preparing the dish and afterwards the mess is cleaned up by the staff. The school building is an airy and open structure with gardens of herbs, spices, and vegetables surrounding. The Chiang Mai Cookery School is not only a great place to learn how to make Thai food, it is a great place to learn about Thai culture, make new friends, and have a truly enjoyable experience.
