Paper Umbrella factory

by jullietta

How do you get to the paper umbrella factory?

RE: Paper Umbrella factory

by keszzz

The factories are at the the 'Boresng Sankampaeng Handicraft Village' which is 10 kilometers east of Chiang Mai where Doi Saket Road and Sankamphaeng Road meet.

Since there are many different types of factories (umbrella, silk, jewelry, ceramics, wood, etc), I think the best way to go, is on a four-hour, morning or afternoon tour. Since they receive commissions, the tours are very inexpensive.

If you don't like tours, and you want to do it on your own, you can rent a tuk-tuk or songtaew (red taxi).

Be aware of the high prices at some of these factories - especially the silk and gem/stone shops - highest prices I have seen in Thailand. There are also stories about major rip offs on jade and other stone purchases - fakes, not discovered until much too late. The buyer pressure in this place was also pretty gross when we visited.

I would recommend to visit a kind of local craft market just before the village of Bor Sang. It is not so overcrowded with tour buses as the one in town,l which was just awful.
Take a tuk tuk and make a good appointment with the driver !!!

I'm not sure when you are planning to go to Chiang Mai, but it is low-season (rainy-season) through October; i.e. not many tourists.

IF you bargain, you should be able to get very good deals, anywhere in Chiang Mai.





Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

Making Friends and Romance Thai Style Part III

by allthai

Another thing you will be tested in is how you spend your money. This starts from the first date. If you ask her where she wants to eat more than likely she will choose an expensive restaurant. You reply should be to suggest a restaurant that is nice but a little cheaper. A simple restaurant is a no-no just as much as an expensive one is. Thais love shopping malls so eating at a Pizza Hut for lunch or dinner is fine (not a Sizzler Steak House). Thais are very thrifty when it comes to spending money, they know how to get the most for the Thai Baht and she is looking to see if you are the same. Suggest Pizza Hut for the “all you can eat night” is a very good bargain and she will take notice of this.

After the first date

Later on in dating you will probably want to purchase a gift for her. This will be another money test. One example when I was dating my wife before we got married I noticed she needed a good watch. We went to the mall and a reputable watch dealer. Now I could of bought a very expensive one but here is what I did. I ask her which one she liked and of course she picked out a very expensive one (remember this is just a test). I then asked the clerk to see a much cheaper one, which she showed me. I told my date that the cheap watches were not any good. We then looked at medium price watches and she found one she liked and made the purchase. Now here is the lesson in all this.

If a Thai girl convinces you to make an expensive purchase when it is not necessary she thinks you spend way too much money. If you make a cheap purchase she will think you are stingy. If you make the right purchase she will know you know how to spend your money wisely. She will never marry a man who throws money away or a man that has no money or is cheap.

Asking for money

Here is one trap most western men fall into and again this is another test. My wife never did this but I was one step ahead of her so she didn’t have to.

The Best Burger in SE Asia?

by bsfreeloader about The Chiangmai Saloon

Serving western food and Thai food, the Chiangmai Saloon serves up the best burger that I have had in SE Asia. The place claims to be recommended by Lonely Planet and Frommer's, so the word is already out and no telling how long it will maintain it's excellence. If you don't like burgers, it's still a good place to meet other travelers, have a couple beers, and enjoy all the freebies on offer: pool, foosball, air hockey, popcorn, etc.

Wet Market scapade

by allelli

As you enter the market you can see many prepared food, meat and some seafood they are also selling according to one market man this is a good place to shop for household and plastic items. The cook food is so inexpensive but good, we try there chicken noodles for 10 Bath only it is worth of trying, They also selling seasonal fruits, vendors will give you a sample for tasting.

For Watters: Wat Phra Sing

by idy

This is apparently Chiang Mai's most famous temple complex. The "monastery of the lion lord" was established in 1345 to house the ashes of Kinng Kham Fu and to mark the religious centre of the Lanna Kingdom.

On the grounds, visitors will find a library with stucco devas (heavenly beings) and flowery scrollwork, a large circular whitewashed stupa in the shape of a Lankan bell, a large wooden drum, and Wihan Kham, a chapel housing a central statue of Phra Buddha Sing.

Many young monks in their saffron robes also congregate at this wat. Every Songkran festival, there is a procession of the most sacred Buddha image from the wat around Chiang Mai town for the tradition of bathing.
