The road there is not for the faint of heart or the timid. We first went to the Doi Tung Gardens and then continued on the mountain roads to get to this coffee shop and restaurant.

Thanks for the tip.

 

I am going to CM with my family soon and would like to visit above place, can we get there in a (rented) sedan car or do we need 4W drive?

I saw smaller sedans up there so I guess it is possible.  I am not sure how hard it would be on the engine and brakes.  I suppose it depends on how heavily loaded the car is, as well.

 

I have been to places which had signs limiting the kind of vehicles allowed but there is no such signage in this area, that I noticed.  Have a great trip.

I did it in a small Toyota rented car. It’s uphill but easily doable in an ordinary vehicle. 
 

Pu chi Fa (spelling?) mountain road was a great deal more difficult in a small car ... so if you plan to go there too then get a decent engine sized car.

The balloon festival always corresponds with Valentine's Day and extends over a weekend, here in Chiang Rai.  There are other festivals around Thailand at different times.  A Google search will provide you with a list of popular festivals in this beautiful country.
