We are planning our first visit to Thailand for November 2013 and need some advice on a day trip. For one of the days we are in Chang Mai, we are trying to decide between an eight-hour bicycle tour around Chang Mai visiting some of the local villages and a guided drive tour to Chang Rai to see the sites and visit the Golden Triangle. While we think both tours are interesting, we are concerned that the 7 hours roundtrip tour to Chang Rai might not be the best option for what we will get to see in one day. We would greatly appreciate feedback on either experience to aid us in our decision. Thanks.
