Short of traveling north of Chiang Rai to see the hillside tribes people, this is next best. The Chiang Mai version is a showcase village with huts and "pavilions" of several of the tribes. We get to see the women weave, and the men carve...More

Hi. Feb/March would be slightly cheaper than January. Thailand is a country rich in culture and relatively cost effective. You will have a great time anywhere in this country and of course the shopping is always fun..

Cheu Leng: Your itinerary sounds fine, except that rather than seeing "some interesting wat" on the way back to Chiang Mai, I would add the "White Temple" into your itinerary. It will be one of the most spectacular temples/wats you will see on your trip of Thailand. It is about 15 minutes south of Chiang Rai. You also might want to look at the FAQ section in the upper right hand corner of the Chiang Rai forum page and click on the link to "My Top 30 List," which is a list of my 30 most...More

Hi Yes to much. Where your issue is Chiang Rai. IMO you do not have time.You will need to leave very early get back very late. Firstly, if you are on a very limited number of days, you are better to fly say to CR , then take the bus over to CM. Day one, as you get in at 7.45, are you coming in by train or Bus.I know you are not on the Thai air or Bangkok Air. flights. if you can leave your bags at the Hotel. Have you booked any where.Then you have the day. Day two is fine I have done the...More
