Recommended Travel Agency for Tours

by Luke9

I will be visiting Chiang Mai soon and would like to do some organised tours, river rafting, treking etc.

Can anyone recommend a good travel agency?

We went on a hill-tribe trek (3 day / 2 night) with:

A short video I shot on our trek a year ago March:

Depending on when you go, rafting can be exciting or tame. We went near the end of the dry season and tame (to the point of boring) would be an understatement.

The best guide ever: Jack Jakrapan Saengpayom.
I met him during my fieldwork in the northern mountains. He stroke me as being really different from all the other guides that visited the village I was living in, because the tourists he guided always knew so much about flora/fauna, culture etc. (I was doing a study of tourism impact in remote areas, and also interviewed a lot tourists).
When my mother came to visit I had him organaze a trek for us, and it was just wonderful. He is really inspiring and speaks real good english too.
You can reach him on phone. 01-877904.
I dont know wheer his office is these days... But try to call him, you wont regret.

Re: Recommended Travel Agency for Tours

In Thailand it is very easy to get a tour from local travel agencies in Bangkok, Pattaya, Chiang Mai and Phuket; places where lots of tourists show up. Local travel agencies, acting as tour brokers, will have a menu selection of popular tours that you can choose from. In the Chiang Mai area they also have some treks you can choose from. You can find a tour one day and leave the following day. Some hotels will also do this for you. Travel agencies are used to tourists needing stuff right away!

Check out the travel agencies nearest your hotel. Most of the tourists take the same old tours and treks when they visit Chiang Mai area anyway. Rafting, Long Neck Women's villages, Chiang Rai Golden Triangle tour, elephant camps are pretty common. Many treks now consist of you riding in a van somewhere to get out and walk a bit. Some real treks can be arranged. Or spend more money and get a special tour tailored just for you. Travel agency group tours use vans most of the time. You are with 9 or 10 other fellow tourists. Nice way to meet other people who are not in bars.

Up to you.

Shop at Night

by william_navigator about Night bazar

Chiang Mai has a number of markets but this is the big one. Outside the old city area on the eastern side of central Chiang Mai. We walked, shopped, grabbed a brew and then shopped some more. The tasty snack of made-while-you-wait-fried-insects is worth a skip unless you are demented. Whatever you want.

Khantoke Dinner - with tribal show

by Audrey118 about Old Chiang Mai Cultural Centre

Khantoke is a popular eating way for the locals on special occassion. There are several places you can go for a Khantoke meal, the popular ones bein g old Chiang Mai - we chose it becos of the hilltribe dance show and there are some night stalls selling tribal crafts too. Other popular Khantoke places are Khuim Kaew Palace, Khum Khantoke and also Nakorn Lanna. I have to say i did enjoy some of the dances, like finger nail dance, sword dance. The second part of the show was outside in an open area, mainly short brief dances by hill tribe people. Along the way to the tribal show was small stalls - which i bought a skirt with embroidery for a mere 200 baht. Well - i have great ideas - i was going to cut out the embroidery and frame it up or make it to a pillow case!!! The food is standard - it is served on a round elevated lacquered tray - and there was fried chicken drumsticks which i was so amused watching all the guests feast with their fingers and chomping them and tucking away merrily. I was not fond of it, cos i have sort of given up eating chicken since bird flu scare - so i tried a small morsel and the taste was offensive. My husband thot it wsa finger licking KFCs!!!!Also available was Burmese dry pork curry, and crucnchy sweet dried noodles - it was more like a sweet toping. And also good serving of stir fried cabbages which was my main course!!! i even had second helpings. I enjoyed the vege mixed with a dipping sauce of chilli and tomato which was actually meant for the pork crackling (yikes). A very odd addition to the meal was fried banana fritters. Served with sticky rice or plain rice, and vegetable soup. tea or cofffee and rice crackers for dessert. Drinks are extras, and the meal cost 660 baht for two.

Ignore the burger chains, see the rest

by traceyspacey

Chiang Mai Night Bazaar, is worth having a wander around even if you don't plan to buy anything. There is a mixture of the usual fake goods as well as northern and north eastern Thai hand woven fabrics. Unfortunately many of the big companies have cashed in on this. Do you really want to go to Mcdonalds, Burger King and Starbucks instead of trying cheap delicious Thai food?
