i was planning on spending july 8-12 in Chang mai then 4 days in Pai. A Thai woman I met in California told me not to go to Pai in July, but to go to Chang Rai. She said the weather too gloomy in Pai and won't see much as too cloudy, etc. I was looking forward to Pai as friends loved it in October.
Any experience of Pai in July would be appreciated, or somewhere else in northern Thailand.
