We used Wayfarers in March. Their website which has tours and prices is:

http://www.wayfarersthailand.com/

I have no problems recommending them. (We did the three day trek).

I have short video clips and images of the trip on my home page. Two links:

Re: Tour Agency in Chiang Mai

by bobnfran

There are many tour companies in the Old City. We used one near the Thae Pae Gate that was very reasonable with excellent service. I think it was called Wild Adventures. It's about 1/2 block from the Gate. They have exactly what you're looking for. You'll love Chiang Mai. We like it so much that we're going back again this year! Have fun. Fran

Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

Finding Real Eco- Tourism in Thailand Part I

by allthai

It seems these days everyone is doing Eco tours and treks but what is it? Do you know the questions to ask a tour or trekking operator to find out if they are for real or just a ploy to get you to go with them?

First of all, most operators care only about making you happy. They will say yes to what ever you want to do. This is fine if you are doing a normal commercial tour to the handicraft factories or city tour however if you want to visit a hill tribe village or a nature area this is not acceptable. The reason is because that is what the consumer wants and the operators want to meet the needs of their clients, which might not be in the best interest for the environment or local people. This means it is up to you to be well informed about what is and what is not eco-tourism.

Here is a list of subjects and whys that separates the Eco-culture and nature friendly tour and trekking operators from those that are not. It is then up to you to decide which companies properly adhere to the true meaning of Eco-tourism in Thailand.

Tour and Trekking operators first must meet three basic standards to be called Eco tourism.

1. The willingness and ability to maintain or improve the environment.
Did you know that most of the plants and animals on the endangered species list are because of destruction of habit and not poaching, hunting or gathering? There are many examples of this in north Thailand. Not so many years ago there were lots of rare species of birds along the Mae Kok, Ping, Fang and Mae Teang rivers. Now because of clear cutting of bamboo for tourist for rafting all of the large and many rare species of bamboo are now gone. This means no more places for the birds to roost or nest, insects to eat and the beautiful stands of bamboo that were once abundant along the river banks are now gone forever. So what can you do?
Try to find operators that use recycled bamboo rafts when ever possible They pick them up at the take out point and bring them back to the starting point by large truck. The rafts can be used again and again for a year or so. Others just take them to the end of the rafting trip and sell them for other uses or most are disposed of along the bank to rot and they cut fresh bamboo for new ones. Finding these operators will be difficult, as many tour operators will say yes they reuse the rafts when in fact you will find out at the end of your rafting trip they do not. Better yet find an operator that use rubber boats, kayaks or canoes with out gasoline engines if possible.

Another major problem is water pollution. With the large numbers of travelers wanting to trek and visit hill tribe villages they are the number 1 source of water pollution in remote areas. I know of many hill tribe villagers that used to go to streams for small fish, frogs and insects to gather and eat. Because of the trekkers using soap and shampoo at waterfalls and in streams the animals that depend on clean water along with the plant life that supports them are now gone. It is a fact that the hill tribe villagers before the tourists arrived used to gather the water and wash their clothes and body away from the streams or waterfalls so as not to pollute.

TRIBAL TOUR

by balhannah

ON this tour, you visit a lot of different Tribes who live in this area of Thailand.

This tour visited Chiang Dao Cave, which was beautiful, then continued on through nice scenery to and Akha and Lisu tribal village. This was a proper village. Our next stop, was a White Thai village, another proper village, with lots of Pigs.

We then went to Bai Orchid Farm, where we had a look at the Orchids and also had lunch which was included in the price.
After lunch, it was to visit more tribes, this time Karen Longneck and Big ears. This was more a set up for the tourist village.

Saw some lovely scenery, and the Tribes were interesting.
COST of this tour in 2009 was 950 t/b

Cheap and Good Massage

by imstress about Kwanjira Massage & Therapy

Kwanjira Therapy is opened by Peter Chong from Singapore.

His massage shop is very popular and the rates are very reasonable.

This is the only shop that provide foot soak. Their staff are all certified and very professional.

The shop is located at The Peak Night Bazzar at Changklan Rd.

THB60 - for 30 mins of foot massage
THB60 - for 30 mins of back, shoulder, head and arm massage
THB150 - for 1hr of Thai Massage

After a long day of sightseeing and shopping at the night bazzar, pamper yourself with very affordable massage.

Send my regards to Peter and tell him you are from Virtual Tourist when you are there ;p

To be avoided

by morganbear about Le Grand Lanna

Great location and great service, but the food was crap. Over priced and poor quality. When we mentioned this to a local person, who deals with the hotel, we found out that they thing foreingers (farangs) can't tell the difference between good Thai food and bad. How wrong they are, so just avoid at all cost until they take note. Whether on business or on hols, there are many other places to find.

Elephant Nature Park

by cmsong

We decided to support this cause because some travellers highly recommended it versus taking the elephant camp tours. It was a truly blessed experience to be able to watch these elephants in their natural setting. No tricks to entertain us but just behaving just like elephants was entertaining enough. We had the pleasure of feeding them and bathing them twice in the afternoon. Check out the website to read more about them.
