Colin,
Having lived in Chiangmai 3 years, I never knew of anyone renting a self-drive tuc tuc. However, that does not mean it cannot be done. In Thailand, everything is possible....with bahts.
Good luck.

Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

Prepare to get wet!

by nattybabe

The Song Kran Festival - Thai New Year - is celebrated throughout Thailand through prayer but also through the throwing of water at anyone who isn't old or a monk! The offical days each year are dictated by the moon but it tends to fall on 13, 14, and 15 of April each year.

What I didn't know was that the locals tend to start early! We started our trek on the 11th of April and we found that the locals liked to stand by the side of the road with buckets ready to throw at cars as we made our way through the area. Nice except that most vehicles have open back and sides, including ours!

One of the traditions is to spread clay over your body (and other people's) and then throw water. Fun!

Chiang Mai has one of the biggest celebrations of Song Kran in Thailand. The entire area around the moat is blocked by traffic and people throwing water. They get the water out of the river and throw it at you. There are people selling buckets, water pistols, clay and huge chuncks of ice by the river ready to sell to passing cars for reloads. it is complete dreadlock and people dress up and there is a carnival atmosphere to the whole thing.

What to do in Song Kran? Either stay inside for 5 days or go out and join in the fun! We hired a ute, climbed in the back with a huge bin of water and started throwing water!

Night Bizar in Chiang Mai

by HawaiianKukiniNui about Night Market

An extensive night market sprawls over the area between Loi Khrao and Tha Phae Roads, off Chang Klan Road, just east of the Khlong Mae Kha, near trhe Chiang Inn. This market is made up of several different concession areas and dozens of street vendors displaying an incredible variety of Thai and northern Thai goods at very low prices - if you bargain well. Acually, many importers buy here because the prices are so good, especially when buying in quantity.

If you're in need of new travelling clothes, this is a good place to look.

You must bargain patiently but mercilessly. There are so many different concessions selling the same type of items that competition effectively keeps prices low, if you haggle. Look over the whole bazar before you begin buying. If you're not in the mood or don't have the money to buy, it's still worth a stroll, unless you don't like crowds - most nights it's elbow to elbow. Several restaurants and scores of food trolleys feed the hungry masses. Good buys include blue denim farmer's shirts, northern and north-eastern handwoven fabrics, yaams (shoulder bags), hill-tribe crafts (many tribe people set up their own concessions here), hats, silver jewellery, lacquerware and many other items. Cheap cassette tapes are plentiful too.

If you're in need of new travelling clothes, this is a good place to look. Haggle, Haggle, Haggle

Comfortable Sleeper Train

by June.b

.

After my massage course, I decided to take the train from Chiangmai to Bangkok, since I have an ample time. I bought the ticket a week in advance to ensure that I could still get the 2nd class airconditioned seat/bed.

Ticket cost = THB 881, saves me some bucks compared to airfare, yet I have to endure the longer travel time. BUT, the trip turned out to be more practical and enjoyable and comfortable - that is, if you really have the time.

The train carriage for the 2nd class sleeper is airconditioned and very clean, during daytime there are two 2-seaters facing each other. At night-time, the 2 seats converts to a bed, and another smaller bed on top of it. I think the lower bunk cost a little more than the upper bunk. But nevertheless, I should have taken and paid for the lower fare upper bank bcuz the train is only half full - means I could always take the lower bunk without any hassle. Because I noticed both bunks are being arranged - with bedsheets, pillows and blankets - whether there's a passenger or empty. Anyhow, honesty is still the best policy.

The train leaves on time and the steward started fixing the bed soon as the darkness fell. Another steward is roaming around to checkout passengers who wants to order meals.

The train is No. 1 SP EXP, takes about 13 hours from Chiangmai to BKK, leaving at 6pm arriving BKK around 7am, so you have enough time to take a sleep and enjoy the craddling (or bumpy) ride, watching the sunset as you doze-off ....and waiting for the sunrise right before you reach Hualamphong Station in BKK.

Khao Soi

by alvinpie about Some street stand

I was told that Khao Soi is great tasting noode of North. It so happened that we rode to a town about 10 KM east of Chiang Mai and my friend who could read Thai spotted one and we decided to try it there.

The noodle is a kind of egg noodle, half deep-fried, half boiled to create a very interesting texture. The soup base is almost Satay but with pickled veggie.

If you are interested, ask your guest house staff where to get it or just find a local food stand that sells hot food and say "Khao Soi" with your eye brow raised. If you are lucky, you may be able to taste this great local dish.

Thai Massage

by hokeypokey

If you have some spare time don´t miss out on a thai massage. These places are all over chiang mai. We needed to make an appointment but i´m not sure if it´s like that with all of them. I´d recommend a check before you get your massage since i´ve been to one that didn´t look clean to me.
For western standards you pay an amount not worth mentioning i believe. A two hour oil and original thai massage is a wonderful thing, but í woulnd´t recommend having it early or at any time of the day that is not close to sleeping time. I`ve been very tired afterwards but it also felt sooo good.
