I've been here in July 2014 and the rang and prices are OUSTANDING! The RANGE is what is key here. Sure you can buy other lower quality items on the street, BUT the quality and range is fantastic. Seriously, are you going to complain you could pick up the same item (you can never beat buying from THE factory) for... More

The San Kampaeng area of Chiang Mai is full of interesting arts and crafts factories that can be toured by the discerning traveler to Thailand. One factory that caught my eye was Laithong Lacquer, about two minutes away from the silk factory tour at Shinawatra. Knowing nothing at all about how lacquerware is produced, I took the tour. After the... More
