Top 7 Activities in Chiang Mai

Top 7 Activities in Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai, Thailand (B)

Fellow travelers lit up when they spoke of Chiang Mai. They raved about how inexpensive things are, the local feel, and spending the day with elephants. I loved Chiang Mai for all of those reasons, especially the last. Sometimes local activities aren't always worth the price, but The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary was worth every penny.(View of Wat Phra Singh) 

Taking the ferry from Koh Phi Phi to Krabi was easy and fairly quick, but do allow ample travel time from the port to the airport. Once again, Bangkok Airways was the fastest and easiest way to cover the long distance. After arriving in Chiang Mai, taxis were inexpensive at the airport and delivered me to my hostel in the main square for a mere 150 baht. (I recommend taking screenshots of your hotel or pull it up on a map, as communication may be difficult.) 

Because it was low season when I visited, booking accommodation at the last minute was no problem everywhere in the islands, but for some reason, Chiang Mai was a different story. Book before you go and if you have the time, book longer than 2 days. Because I didn't do this, I had to change hostels 3 times, something I don't recommend. In the end, I was able to stay at Stamps the longest and highly recommend it for a budget option, mainly because it's just down the road from the cheapest laundry service (50 baht/kg) and the best breakfast burrito and smoothies at Cat House.  ......
