Chiang Mai II (from @sixpegs blog)
G – thank you very much. :) I’m glad you are interested in going out to places like that too! For this Chiang Mai trip, I followed a tour. But I think you can easily go up to these places free and easy, and by just hiring a driver or minibus. In this post, Nimmanhaemin Road can be easily reached by a minibus. Only about 20baht each by minibus from the “town area”. As for the villages where the tribes stay, it cost a little bit more, but def affordable. About 500 baht each for entry. The White Temple and village where the tribes stay are in Chiang Rai. That’s further up north and you will need to travel further up north via a bus or something. So I’d recommend going with a tour or with a trusted driver. The trip there is about 6 hours. You can stop at many locations along the place though, like White Temple, hotspring etc. If time is an issue, I’d recommend flying to Chiang...
