Please advise re. 2.5 days in Chiang Mai

Jump to last reply

We will be in November in Chiang Mai, arriving late on a Friday evening, probably still fighting jet leg after a flight from the West Coast and 2.5 days in Hong Kong. We will be in CM unfortunately for only 2.5 days, Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning, taking off after lunch at 12:30 for Chiang Rai, (stopping at the White Temple). We will be staying at the U Chiang Mai (where the Sunday walking street takes place). There is just too much to see/experience in Chiang Mai and all doesn't fit. Something needs to be left for next time.

I have the following tentative schedule which tries to include what we would like to see but seems to be very crowded. I would like to keep Saturday the way it is planned. However, I would appreciate some advice from those who have been there to "lighten up" the schedule for Sunday & Monday, to avoid "duplicates" w. the many market options. Also suggestions for places to eat (thai food in a clean environment is preferred) near where we will be on Sunday and Monday would be appreciated.

Saturday: Bhuping Palace, Wat Doi Suthep, lunch, Wiang Kum kam, Saturday walking street & Wat Sri Suphan, dinner nearby

Sunday: Wat Chedi Luang, Wat Phra Singh, both very close to hotel and Wat Suan Dok if possible; Warorot and Tom Lan Yai flower markets, lunch; 2 hour massage either at the ex-prisoner women or Fah Lanna Spa; Sunday Walking Street OR Anusarn, Night Bazar and Kalare Markets with dinner by the River

Monday morning: Post Office to ship what I purchased (if in fact I bought things; while I do not plan to do shopping, some handicrafts might prove to be irresistible); Nimman Promenade, lunch and departure at 12:30.

Thanks in advance.
