My hubby & I and our 2 teen kids ( 16 & 18 ) will be visiting Chiang Mai for 8 nights. Looking at booking Away Suansawan for 3 nights and Salbury GH for the other 5. Four star country and two star city l thought would be a good mix of experiences. What are the tours we should book which are closer to the Mae Rim area? If we hire a car for a few days are we covered properly by insurance or are we best to hire a driver for this part of the world ? I have heard mixed reviews and am really unsure. Is Chaing Rai really a must see ? Was origionaly thinking of a couple of nights up there instead of Mae Rim and going on the ATV day tour , white temple , museum , and maybe the triangle ??? Hubby not so fussed on all the travelling ( wants to relax too ). Any sugestions and advice would be greatly appreciated. Also which is the better of the two the gibbon zipline or the flying squirrels? And which elephant park where we can have a ride on their neck in a fairly natural enviroment which the animals are truely well cared for ? First time posting so hope this is ok !
