We will be in Chiang Mai for 5 days commencing 2nd February, have booked a hotel near the river and night market. We have booked a tour into the hills to see orchids in the wild, and we know the Flower Festival is on in Chiang Mai.We need advice on good tours to take or places to see by ourselves. Also some reasonably priced restaurants with good Thai food and some with entertainment , we do not want street stall foods etc.
The River Ping Palace was the best meal we ate in one month in Chiang Mai . Mid-price range , not well known by tuk tuk drivers . opposite side of Ping River near Sheraton Hotel . They also have a Lanna style guesthouse that was a bit out of our price range but seemed awsome . Traditional Thai food done very well.... P.S I was a chef for 20 yrs . enjoy !!!!
Entertainment ? There are several restaurant -clubs on the Ping river all close to one another . Riverside restaurant - The Gallery- FIllmore - about 5 in all they all have music and some dancing . Although popular with both Thai and visitors these are not "traditionaly Thai" . All of these spots are quite large with western rock and jazz being done well by Thai bands . By no means are these secret hideaways . Easy tuktuk or walk from night market area .Close about 2am , Hate to admit it but I know that from personal expierience .
Hi, Thank you for your recommendations , it will give us a good start.
