Tour from Chiang Mai to Pai & Mae Kam Pong Village

by Daemenm

Hello,

We are travelling to Chiang Mai in February for 4 days.
I'm not interested in the typical touristic tours, spending the whole day in a bus & being taking to places to buy souvenirs.

I've read some great reviews on "Pai" the "Mae Kam Pong Village".
What is the best way to travel to these places, note that we wish to return to Chiang Mai in the evening. If worthwile we would consider to spend one night at one of these small villages. But first we need to get there :-))
Any ideas,I think that travelling by motorbike would be a bit dangerous as we plan to spend 2 more weeks in Thailand.

Recommendations for any other place to visit, far away from the touristic areas are also very welcome.....

Looking forward hearing from you soon.
Many thanks in advance.

google comes up with 5260 results for Mae Kam Pong Village, maybe you should try it. There seem to be some interesting options. When you visit places which can be reached on a day trip, you'll usually get quite a few tourists. To visit places which are "far away from the touristic areas" you need a lot more time.

motorcycle or auoto is the best transport or you will be on a tour bus or slow local bus. The roads are incredible and in excellent shape; be aware it was like driving the Grand Prix though.

I saw people riding scooters over the mountain to Pai but you will need to be an experienced rider as it was a challenge on a full-sized motorbike.

Stopping any where along the way was the biggest bonus; there are several great routes outlined on www.gt-rider.com Enjoy!

Hi we travelled to Pai from CM in Jan 05 via slow bus and from memory it was approx 4 hours one way so you would definitely stay overnight. Was not the most comfortable ride, very crowded and hot< and on the way back got a minibus which was alot quicker and more comfortable. Pai is a lovely place to relax for a couple/few days but not for a day trip, not sure about Mae Kam Pong.

Pai is the backpacker capital of the north you do not go there to get away from tourists but to party with them!

Try Phrao valley near Chang dao to see non tourist areas. it is a quaint village with farming not tourism as the main activity it has hot springs and hilltribes but not human zoos.

Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

How to plan your Thailand Holiday/Vacation PART 3

by allthai

When you stay in your own bamboo home or bungalow in a hill tribe village they know that is your space. They will not bother you or burst into your home. You can visit them at your leisure and enjoy your privacy at the same time. The villagers are much happier as you are respecting their privacy also. The village headman or someone in the village will probably invite you into their home for a cup of tea. If you would like to see the inside of a hill tribe home always ask your guide first. The tour guide usually arranges visiting a hill tribe home in advance. The folks in the village know you are coming and a designated home is planned for your visit.

This type of hill tribe village stay promotes harmony in the village. The culture is not disrupted, everyone’s privacy is respected and you are treated like a friend rather than a source of income as a tourist. The building of the home is paid for by the tour operator to the villagers and a fee is charged for the overnight stay to be shared by all the villagers.

For those looking for comfort and scenic beauty, visiting hill tribe villages but not wishing to stay in one, there are many options. Excellent fully furnished bungalows with air conditioning in a small town on the banks of a beautiful river surround with mountains in a fruit orchard is just one of the choices. For bird lovers there are wonderful resorts that cater to the birds along with the guests in total comfort. Many of these hotel/bungalow resorts are on large garden laden grounds with hike and bike trails. Bikes are available to take a leisurely ride through forest and small villages. They all have excellent restaurants serving Thai and Western food and yes a Jacuzzi and/or swimming pool. What ever your inside Thailand travel or accommodations needs there is the transport and place for you. Check around and find a good flexible tour operator that will give you many choices of transport, accommodations and tours to meet your needs and expectations. No need to reserve your hotel or resort for every night in one place. Many operators will say you can’t do this or that, take this package tour, stay at this hotel, take this flight, etc. If you do, you might miss out on a wonderful experience to remember for a lifetime.

Sai Namphung Orchid Nursery

by Willettsworld

This is Chiang Mai's biggest orchid farm, which plays host to almost every species of orchid that grows in Thailand. This includes one of world's most beautiful and rarest varieties, the Vanda Coerulea "Pure White" orchid. It also houses a butterfly farm and a few rare breeds of Siamese cats and dogs. In addition to fresh orchids, which can also be exported, the farm offers a variety of souvenirs, such as gold-gilded orchid and butterfly ornaments. I came here as part of my long-necked tribe day trip from Chiang Mai and this was our first port of call. Nice place to visit, first off.

Chiang Mai Airport

Chiangmai International Airport is about 4km southwest of downtown Chiangmai... along the Super-Highway and Chiangmai-Hod Road... You can go to the city by public taxi and limousine... and the public taxi stand is just outside the arrival lounge...

Chiangmai International Airport has a very good and affordable Airport Restaurant... Managed by Thai Airways, it serves very good Lanna food...

Both the domestic and international terminal are located in the same terminal building... The Airport Information Centre is on the first floor Arrival Lounge...

Wat Chedi Luang

by Rodan44

Wat Chedi Luang, Chiang Mai's largest monument, was built in 1391 during the reign of King Saen Muang Ma, 8th ruler of the Mengrai dynasty, to enshrine the relics of his father. The massive chedi (pagoda) was expanded over the centuries, until it reached its final form in 1475, when King Tilokarat made it the home of the Emerald Buddha, the most important cultural treasure in Thailand. At one point the chedi was 144 feet wide and 282 feet tall. Unfortunately, the pagoda was heavily damaged in the 1545 earthquake during the reign of Queen Mahadevi. The present chedi was restored by UNESCO and is about 60 meters high. In front of the ancient chedi is the viharn, or worship hall, which is a much newer structure.
