Chiang Mai

Jump to last reply

Hello. We're pulling the details of our itinerary together for a 4 night / 3 day stop in Chiang Mai this Nov. Any help is greatly appreciated! Here is what we have so far:

Tues. afternoon - Fly into Chiang Mai from Bangkok
Wed. - Full day at the Elephant Nature Park
Thurs. - Doi Inthanon, Wachirathan Water Fall, the Royal Gardens
Fri. - (open day) see below about Doi Suthep.

Here are my questions:
1) Can Doi Suthep be included in our day Thurs. or is it a completely separate excursion? This is a must see for us.

2) Does anyone know how much it costs to hire a private car for the day for something like the Thurs. excursion?

3) Does anyone have good dining recommendations? I read that we should try Khao Soi noodles and have several recommendations for where to try them.

4) I know it's a brief stop but anything else recommended as a must see? We want to stay away from tourist traps…monkey shows, elephant rides etc.

Lastly, we're staying at the Arte House Chiang Mai. It seems to be highly rated across the board from various sites. We booked via Hotels.com. For the life of me, I can't find a website for them or a way to email them. I've tried to message them on their Facebook page but no response (over 2 weeks ago). Has anyone stayed with them? Know how to contact them besides calling internationally? People rave about how awesome the owner (Pop) is.

Oh, I'm sure some of you will say slow the pace down which I appreciate. We have this short window to get a taste of Chiang Mai before leaving for the beaches :).

Thanks!
