  • Jungle Trek

    Chiang Mai Favorites

    This is another Jungle Kid, the Little-Pinky-No-Pants. He is good at asking for candies, playing with baby puppy, riding a dog while twisting its ears like riding a motorbike, and playing with knife. He chop his fingers, without crying, laughing instead! I was woundering why these kids don't cry even he cut his fingers. Perhaps their born character...

    STOP 2 on DOI INTHANON NATIONAL PARK TOUR The Siriphum Waterfall is tall, pretty waterfall. The waterfalls are actually twins, two parallel streams of water, named for His Majesty King Bhumibol and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit. The name of these falls comes from a combination of Queen Sirikit and King Bhumibol, so you might sometimes see this...

    Chiang Mai Favorites

    STOP 4 on DOI INTHANON NATIONAL PARK TOUR Just up the road from the ranger station is a Hmong market, which sells produce from the Royal Project and Hmong villages around Mae Chaem. Actual Hmong hill tribe people live here. We stopped to have a look at their wares (mainly produce), and to see them dressed in their colourfully embroidered...

    Chiang Mai Favorites

    In all packed tours we have to visit a few factories clearly prepared tor tourist and guide commissions. In Chiang Mai it looked a little bit different - as we were a small group we were taken from a small workshop to another covering all the popular activities, without the pressure to buy, and with the opportunity to a close and nice contact...

  • Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

    Chiang Mai Favorites

    At the center of the temple complex is a brilliant gold stupa/pagoda/chedi. Which ever name you want to use, it is spectacular and the center piece of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. The Pagoda is surrounded by several halls paying tribute to Buddha and one with a replica of the Emerald Buddha, now located in Bangkok. These halls form a wall with one...

    STOP 5 @ DOI INTHANON NATIONAL PARK TOUR Heading up the Mountain in our bus, it became foggier & foggier, this was in June, 2009. Near the top of the Summit, where the Royal Chedi's are, it was thick fog, and rain! not the best to see the supposedly beautiful gardens and distant views. From the carpark, there is an escalator that will take you to...

  • Elephant ride

    Chiang Mai Favorites

    The Elephant Tour I usually don't take group tours because of the limited flexibility, but here in Chiang Mai I had a great experience. I took the 'Elephant' tour from one of the numerous tour operators in town. We rode Elephants through the hills, visited remote Tribal Villages and went down the river on a bamboo raft. (Yes, the Elephants stayed...

  • Songkran (Thai New Year)

    I would certainly agree with the 'Bulldog' that Chiang Mai has the best Songkran in Thailand.Best that is, assuming you enjoy being wet, and making EVERYONE else wet.note: Prersonally I wish it was a one day event instead of +four; but hey, it is fun.-------I suspect the rainy season has different starting dates depending on the region, but the...

  • Northern Thailand Itinerary

    I really think that it depends on what you have planned on your visits. It appears that you are leaning on being in Chiang Rai longer than Chiang Mai. If you have more things that you want to do in Chiang Rai then I would spend more time there. Another option is to do 2 nights in Chiang Mai, go to Chiang Rai for your two nights and then fly onto...

  • What dangers of Thailand?

    Couldn't agree more. It would also help to know your point of origin, where are you coming from? You could also get another guide or even do it yourself. There are hundreds of web sites out there for you to plan a really good daily itinerary to keep the students busy and for them to learn something, again, not sure what your goals are, (fun,...

  • Getting Back To Your Hotel

    When you arrive at your hotel and check in ask the receptionist for their buisness card, the buisness card is in ENGLISH on 1 side and in THAI on the other. This makes it easy to get home after an enjoyable meal or a day of shopping, as many of the taxi drivers and tuk tuk drivers don't understand english very well.

    Thailand is like a country museum and the traditional sulptures of the temples and holy grounds are the art pieces of this museum.

    The silverware in Chiang Mai is also very beautiful and it is worth visiting a silverware making factory.
