Inexpensive Flight to Chiang Mai

by dkf

I would like to travel to Chiang Mai in October. Does anyone know the cheapest flights from the U. S. to Thailand? Round-trip, probably to Bangkok, then I could fly Thai or Nok Airline to Chiang Mai. Is skyauction safe?

Which airport are you flyout out from? I just checked Eva Air website. If you click on the promotion button (Top left corner) you can see their special deals on the plane tickets. Economy is $ 603 before tax.

I used Eva air site and was able to get an Evergreen Deluxe Economy for $ 977 (tax included) for Mid Nov Travel. Prior to booking, I tried calling many Travel agency and no one could match the price. normally the deluxe economy goes for $ 1,100 - 1,250.

If you can go in November instead of October, it would be better. Chiang Mai is doing the Flower Expo and 33 countries are bringing their flowers and plants to participate. I heard that India is spending over $ 125,000 to create an Indian garden for this flower expo. For more info. Check www.royalflowerexpo.com The expo will be from nov. 1 - Jan 31.

I've never used skyaution.

--
I use a site called dohop.com

http://www.dohop.com/

I like it because:

1. It searches ALL airlines, including dicounters.

note: discounters to Chiang Mai include: Nok, 1-2-Go, Air Asia, and Bangkok.

2. You can search ALL flights on a given day.

3. Once you pick the flight which works for you, you will book the ticket through the airlines website.

4. I've NEVER been burnt using dohop.

----
note: My fav discounter is Nok Air. I don't know how much krap you will be buying in Chiang Mai, but Nok Plus has extra baggage allowance, two-by-two seating, meal, ...

The price for Nok Plus is often lower than Thai economy.

------
have a great trip,
jon

After a week or more searching the same question for nov.1-29, I came up w/ $700US (incl tax)from China Air LAX - BKK. That was the cheapest I could find.

Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

Using the "Thai Toilet"

by SumTingWong

Yes, you may have the pleasure to use the Thai people toilet, ie the squatter. These may look extremely unappealing at first, but you should love them by the end! You should know how to use them so you know what you're doing when that time comes when you are up against one, well here it goes...:

1) Get bare footed
2) There is normally a rack to put your pants, use it, if not well put your pants somewhere.
3) Place feet on feet pads and just squat down
4) Drop the bomb (1 or 2).
5) Ut-oh, no toilet paper, what to do? (Bring some before if your smart, but biodegradable ones only). But normally you won't have any so heres what to do: there is a bucket and troth of water for a reason... take your LEFT HAND and wet it and clean the spot... now you can see why we don't eat with our left hands!!!
6) Ut-oh, no flusher, but there is a hose and pail. Fill the pail with the water from the hose, pour the water into the toilet from the pail and it will (should) go down.
7) Put your pants and shoes on and congratulations you're done!

Extra comedy provided by me! lol! It really is important!

NIGHT BAZAAR

by balhannah about Night Market

The market attracts huge crowds every evening and probably every tourist knows about it!

It is meant to start at 6pm and finish about 11pm. I arrived at 6pm, and most of the inside stalls were still closed. The stalls on the street were mostly open, so I would advise to leave it until later.

Be warned, it was hot when I visited, and even though this was held in the evening, walking the footpath between stalls IS EXTREMELY HOT AND STIFLING, IT IS VERY NARROW, AND MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR WALLET IS.
Nothing happened, but I could see how you could become a pick pocket victim very easily.

Here, there are gifts, local handicrafts,silk, jewelry and items like Cameras, TVs, DVD's & CDs, plus a lot more. Remember to bargain here!

Inside the building itself, and located downstairs, are portrait painters. You sit, and they draw!
A friend got hers done, and it turned out very nice.

It’s a big place to wander around, so it will take a few hours to have a good look.

Genuine Local Food Experience

by Speedbeater about Huen Phen

Huen Phen specializes in Northern Thai food, and you will be pleased to see locals eating here. Mostly it's families sitting around one table picking food from a multitude of little bowls. Go ahead and order at least four dishes each. And you absolutely must experience northern style jungle curry with no coconut milk (not for the weak).

Open daily 08:00-15:00 & 17:00-22:00. Jungle curry. Papaya salad is good too.

Daily Massage course

by Rene69

I did a 1/2 day massage course (foot reflexology) and my friend a 1 day back Thai Massage course at NAMO Chiang Mai and it was a great experience. In 3 hours I learned foot to give a foot massage of 30 minutes, the teacher spoke great english and explained everything very well, and together with the course they gave me a book, so I will not forget what I have been practicing. I think it is a great experience if you want to know a little bit more about massage, but do not have too much time on your hands

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, Rajvoravihara

by AshleeS

The entrance fee is 30 baht. This is another touristy destination the feel of say disneyland is what came to our mind. It does however have a beautiful view. You can paya little extra money to take a cable car tot he top or you could get your exercise and walk both up and down the 306 steps. Do remeber to dress politely, no shorts (in one section they give you a long skirt to put on and you must take off your shoes).That is around the Stupa Pagoda (golden chedi), is 79 feet high and 39 feet across and is covered with engraved gold plates. You will see monks at the top. And little food places for ice-cream etc. It's too comercialized but still beautiful.
