RE: hired car with driver

by dkf

I visited my daughter in Chiang Mai in July, and she had been living there for one month. We traveled all over the city in a song tao (like a community taxi, actually the back of a small truck with a top on it) or in a tuk-tuk (small 3-wheeled taxi.) One day, we asked a song tao driver how much it would cost to take us to the elephant camp and the orchid farm and wait for us at both places. I'm sorry that I can't remember the exact price, but it was VERY inexpensive. So much so, that I felt guilty and told my daughter not to barter with him. (You know of course that you barter for everything there.)
I love Chiang Mai, and it was so easy to get around. You'll have no problems.

Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

Loi Krathong Festival Part VI

by allthai

Kome Kwaen are also offered to pay respect, and prayers to Buddha images are made. There are several shapes of this certain lantern. They are the Baat Pra (Alms bowl), Dow (Star), Ta Gra (Basket), and Tammajak (the wheel of law, which means to have a thorough knowledge about religious discourses). The Buddhists will hang these lanterns around a temple, vihara, alms-house, sala, or house.

The Kome Paad is an interesting lantern since it revolves on an axis. This is done with the aide of the heat from the candle's smoke. In order to make it revolve, the candle is placed inside the lantern where little gadgets take the energy from the smoke and then revolves. The lantern is shaped like a circle, almost like the earth. Usually there are pictures glued on, such as the 12 characters of the horoscope. This revolving lantern will give the effect of shadow puppets. Kome Paad can only be seen during the Yee Peng Festival. It is placed in the temple gates and is not allowed to be moved from one place to another.

The Kome Loy is a lantern that is similar to a hot-air-balloon. It is also quite similar to that of a normal lantern except it does not require 24 candles for illumination. Because the air lantern must rise up to float in the air, it must be lightweight; therefore, it does not have a bamboo cylinder inside. In order to send the lantern into the air, it requires a method to heat the air. This is done by tying a small bowl underneath the open section of the lantern. Oil is then placed into the bowl along with a cotton cloth. As the oil catches fire and commences burning, the hot air quickly travels into the lantern and it soon rises into the air. See video at

Kalare Night Bazaar

by Cathy&Gary about Kalare Night Bazaar

This bazaar is great, its undercover, there is a large eatery, an entertainment area with cultural performances and a nice beer garden.

My favorite shop is in here, Tiki Thai Art's. There are many shops selling products from all over Thailand at fantastic prices and shipping goods home is easy.

See more info on Tikis page.

The front of Kalare Night Bazaar is on Changklan Rd where the Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is held and the back joins the Pornping Tower Hotel.

Best Curry, Amazing Location

by HasTowelWillTravel about Huen Phen

This is my favorite restaurant in Thailand. Walking in, there are an array of antiques, set among a beautiful tropical garden. The tables are intimate, a perfect setting to end the day. The food is tremendous, as authentic as it gets. The curries range from mild to fiery-hot. They serve locally-made Chiang Mai sausages, curries, nam prik, the works. If you had to experience only one restaurant in Chiang Mai, this is the one. I had a green curry with banana flowers and pork ribs. It was delicious, as hot as a curry can get. i started off with thick Chaing Mai sausages which were great. It was a fabulous meal, one I wish I could have all the time.

hire a driver

by davidius

A good way to see Chiang Mai and the whole of Northern Thailand with its many activities is to hire a driver. I can thoroughly recommend Mr Pichet who has his own Toyota car and is a very friendly and safe driver--better than driving yourself on Thai roads! On a recent trip we used him for 5 days and went trekking, elephant riding, temple visiting, hill tribe visiting and just seeing the beautiful Thai countryside off the tourist track. He will be very flexible and respect your wishes. He speaks tolerable English and is a genuinely kind man who will try to save you money whenever possible. He can be contacted on his Thai mobile 081-673-3255 or at home on 053-872148. Say that David recommended him. Happy visiting!

Opium plants in a Meo Village

by aukahkay

During my excursion to visit the Meo tribes, I was taken to a typical Meo village to see their houses. On the way, we dropped by a plantation where opium poppy plants were grown in the wild. The opium poppy (papaver somniferum) flowers are white, purple or red in colour. Raw opium is harvested from the sap of the plant.
