The journey from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai took approximately 4 hours. On the way to Chiang Rai, we had a short stop at a hot spring park for tea and toilet break. There are many food and souvenirs shops. After the stop we continue to visit the White Temple. It’s beautiful. The area is quite big. We were allowed to go into the temple but taking pictures was not allowed. Before proceeded to visit the Blue Temple, we had our lunch at a nearby restaurant. Food was average. Not tasty. The Blue Temple is not far from the White Temple. It’s smaller. Inside the temple, there were many paintings about the life of Buddha. The temple is beautiful too. I prefer the White temple more. Next stop is the Baan Daam or Black house where it kept many items made of animals. It’s something like a taxidermy. Personally, I don’t really enjoy the Black house since there’s nothing much to see. The area is big but most of the items were the same. There were crocodiles, furniture made of buffaloes’ bones amongst others. Our last stop was the Long Neck village which I enjoyed very much. We met with several ladies with long neck. They were previously from Burma. They put on heavy metal around their neck until the shoulder lowered down and that made the neck appeared longer. It was understood that they started wearing the metal around their neck at the age of 5 years. Previously it was made of gold, today it’s made of bronze. The metal weigh around 3 kg. The people made souvenirs to support their daily needs. It was really a long day but an enjoyable tour. The visit to the long neck village was one I enjoyed the most.

We booked the trip without an Optional Karen Long Neck tour, however the tour agent decided to group us with 2 people who had this tour. This means that we either had to wait for 30 minutes for the others to finish their tour or we had to buy the tour with them. Total scam. Secondly, the driver and the car are horrible. I am not even joking when I say that the 3 hour drive from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai was done using the Van's 1st and 2nd gear. For some reason the driver kept pressing and releasing the gas pedal every 5 seconds. So you can imagine what a horrible 6 hour car ride we had. Finally, the guide was abysmall at best. I really loved the places, but I would recommend everyone get a private car trip and avoid this company

Did a 2 day customised tour through this company. They tailored it to exactly what we wanted. Mr Moon was our guide and he was brilliant. Would definitely recommend him and will use him again when in this area. He arranged everything from airport transfers, all transport, trip to Elephant Sanctuary, lunches, temple tours etc. Also his English is excellent.

Our booking was handled by Mr Nung. He was very responsive with the booking. He also specifically mentioned in the booking that we will get a SUV car to Pai. Pai is a three hour drive with 762 curves so we have expected a very comfortable car with reclining chairs. He also showed us some photos of the car interior so we were very confident about the arrangement. On the day, we got a ute. We were totally shocked as the chairs look different from photos and they don’t recline. None of the photos in the email attachment shows our car!! Even the hotel staff said this car is not going to be comfortable for a Pai trip. We talked to Mr Nung but he kept saying the car is okay. At the end we had to have one sitting in front , the other lying at the back to make ourselves comfortable. We are happy with the guide’s service, his name is Mr Moon. But we found the description of the car type deceptive and might not be most suitable for long hours road trip.

We did a 3 day private tour with Moon as our tour guide and driver of the far North of Thailand who looked after us very well. We visited caves, a hill tribe village, lots of really interesting and varied temples. We had a quick boat ride on the Mekong River at the Golden Triangle town of Chiang Saen. We had a great tea tasting and then we went onto the garden of the Princess Royal at Doi Tung which was a highlight for us. We stayed at a lovely local Guesthouse at Santi Khiri the first night and ate at Sue Hai and had some delicious Chinese food. We have fed back to the owners that we would not recommend the Diamond Park Inn in Chiang Rai which is where we stayed on the 2nd night as this was more suited to large tour groups and is noisy and lacks any kind of charm. We enjoyed the food and our guide ensured we were able to eat local dishes which adds to the experience. We can recommend this tour but check where you stay in Chiang Rai.
