Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Hire a scooter but be careful of the gravel that is on a lot of the smaller roads. Also if you want a map a few travel agents sell them or you can go to the tourism centre which is to the left of the police station.

Liked: I enjoyed the white temple, black house and their Hill tribes culture museum.

Disliked: Not too many things to do here, two days was maybe too long.

Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: Visit evening market on Saturday, rent a bike and get out of the city, visit a tribe village museum

Liked: It is a quiet city with lots of interesting things to see. There are many organiyed hiking trips, visit to the golden triangle, ... It may also be a good idea to rent a scooter and visit nearby temples (white temple) and black house. These are much different from the rest of them in Thailand

Customer Travel Tip: NA

Liked: The White Temple I thought was beautiful and the hill tribe museum is very interesting, it was an easy city to walk around in and the night market was great for food and had a great atmosphere with live entertainment. Also the buses to get to places around chaing rai were easy to use and everyone at the station was very helpful

Disliked: If you are on a budget and travelling solo it is hard to find tours which are open unless you want to do the normal route of white and black temple, a few villages and the Golden Triangle. If you want to do other tours they tend to be private unless you hap across one with people doing it.
