November

by dakgrl

I am planning on visiting Thailand in November-everyone has said I can wait until I get there to find a hotel. If I am there during the festival in Nov.- I've heard that can be a problem. How far ahead should I book it, how long after the festival do places stay booked? (If I wanted to avoid the festival time and not worry about reservations.)

It's a very enjoyable festival during Loy Krathong and I highly suggest that you stay at the time. The atmosphere is also nice too in Sukhothai as well. You should book as early as possible. And most Thai tourists will leave town after the festival.

Which festival are you referring to? Loy Krathong? Its one evening only and shouldn't be a problem. Its always a good idea to book ahead as November is the start of the dry season, and the high season. But you can still find a hotel.

the festival in november is loy kratong festival and is celebrated from 24 to 27 nov. by locals although offically it is a one day festival.If you are planing to get there before that time there is going to be no problem.
There are always plenty of rooms in Chiang mai so no need to worry

Re: November

I just checked the calender, and for this year, it is on Nov 12. But it is usually celebrated for a few days, especially in the north.

Hi,
I've been to Chiang Mai for the Loy Krathong festival every year since 2004. You should not miss it. It's my favourite festival! And I did face problems booking my favourite guesthouses and hotels during the festival peak periods. You should book at least 1 month in advance. I guess it depends on which hotels u book. The less popular ones should be fine.

The festival peaks for 3 days in Chiang Mai. For this year, actual day is on 12 Nov. But based on past celebrations, the 3 day peak periods should be 11-13 Nov. And yes, most tourists leave the city after the last day of celebrations.

You can download a 2008-2009 calendar with Thai holidays here:

It also has some useful info on Chiang Mai.

Not to worry too much. If you are not interested in the usual big hotels, then you are fine. just book 2-3 weeks before.

Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

How to plan your Thailand Holiday/Vacation part 1

by allthai

Thailand is a fairly large country with many different cultures, scenery and attractions. If you plan your schedule carefully you can cover most of these on your first visit to the Kingdom. The main question is how?

Although a lot of this depends on how much time you have there are many mistakes people make on planning their visit so they miss out on experiencing the real culture and natural beauty of Thailand.

With the Internet you can find loads of information on Thailand but learning how to use this information is critical. It is easy to be overwhelmed with facts, suggestions, tour itineraries, hotel decisions, and ideas from others on where to go and what to do. All this information is great and of immense value if you can just sort it all out. I will try to help you do that here.

I have written many Thailand travel Blogs, journals and posted on several travel forums. I receive lots of email from visitors to these web sites asking about the Kingdom, culture, history, what to see, when, where and how. In almost every case it is impossible for them to enjoy the rich culture and natural beauty of Thailand away from the normal tourist crowds. Most have contacted me too late.

They have made several errors when planning their holiday/vacation so now they are limited to doing the normal canned tour offered by most tour operators. They could have enjoyed a wonderful experience that will be remembered for a lifetime if they made the correct decisions in the proper order during their planning, here’s how.

DO NOT book your hotels or transportation inside Thailand until you have decided what you want to see, do and enjoy!!!

This is the biggest mistake you can make. Lets start with visiting north Thailand first. Most of the email I receive is like this; “We have booked our flights Bangkok – Chiang Mai - Bangkok and 5 nights in a hotel in Chiang Mai. We want to go elephant riding, visit hill tribe villages, take a long tail boat ride, visit the Golden Triangle, Night Bazaar and Doi Inthanon National Park, is this possible in the time I have?”

Because they already have their flights and hotels booked they are limited to day trips from Chiang Mai. They will spend more time riding in a vehicle than enjoying the attractions.

Just to get to the Golden Triangle and return it will take 7 hours or more just riding in a vehicle. For Doi Inthanon they have just enough time to ride to the summit of the mountain, take a 20-minute trail walk, have lunch at a touristy restaurant, visit a few waterfalls and return to Chiang Mai.

For the long tail boat ride they will be limited to riding on the Ping River in town. If they choose to ride through the mountains it will be a 3 and 1/2 hour journey by vehicle, 3 hours in the boat and another 3 to 4 hours in a vehicle to return to Chiang Mai. Again, too much time in a vehicle. The elephant riding and hill tribe villages they visit will be close to town filled with tourists with not much real culture or natural beauty if any.

There is a much better way.

Decide on what you would like to see and do along with how much time you have first before booking your flights and hotel.

Now if the same person asked me; “I will be visiting Chiang Mai from Bangkok for 5 days, I want to go elephant riding, visit hill tribe villages, take a long tail boat ride, visit the Golden Triangle, Night Bazaar and Doi Inthanon National Park, is this possible in the time I have? We have not booked our hotels or flights inside Thailand yet”

Wow are they going to have a good time.

Pung Tao Gong Ancestral Temple

by Willettsworld

This Chinese ancestral temple is the oldest in Chiang Mai, dating back to 1876. It's located along the west bank of the Ping River near the Nawarat Bridge. Inside the temple, beautifully decorated Chinese architectural designs are found using traditional Chinese techniques.

Th Praisani

Is a songthaew a bus or a taxi? - its a songthaew!

by thedouglas

The name apparently means - 2 rows of seats - or thereabouts! - which is what is is! When in Chiang Mai, you must have a ride in one of these things - which is a sort of a canopied truck with bench seats - and carried more people in Thailand than ever allowable in Australia anyway. We saw kids going on school excursions in them, literally hanging off the back of them! Just imagine our kids being allowed to do that!

We took one up to Doi Suthep - and this is a real must do experience - the "exhaust emissions" from one's own vehicle have you arriving at your destination with a slightly black complexion! Must have been all the groaning to get up the uppy bits. You will feel much in need of a bath - and will not believe the grime that comes off you at the end of it all. Wouldn't have missed it for quids though!

Good Food at Royal Princess Hotel

by Mikebb about Garden Restaurant

We were guests of the hotel for 5 nights and ate here on 2 evenings. I normally like to eat at restaurants outside the hotel , however as we returned late and tired from full day tours we chose to eat at the Garden Restaurant. The decor is modern and tasteful with plenty of room between the tables. Service is excellent, the staff always out to please. The restaurant serves both european and Thai food but we always try to eat local whilst on holiday. We found the food to be excellent, a little more costly than local restaurants due to 10% service charge and 7% Vat, however this was nothing as the base cost of each meal is so low. eg Nasi Gorang 150 baht, Kaow Soi 130 baht, banana split 130 baht, and Singha beer 120 baht per small bottle.

The cake display was magnificant. All Thai food was fantastic

Bamboo Rafting Down The Ping River

by BorderHopper

With our elephant trek came a short excursion on a bamboo raft down the Ping river. It was perfect for the kids as it wasn't a white water trip down a raging river. The Ping River is a slow moving river that allowed us a gentle trip along the banks. We saw elephants & jungle scenery. The kids enjoyed it as well!
