Chiang Rai: Hidden Gem of Thailand?

Recommended Posts

Read the OP again. He did mention the smoke and the heat... whistling.gif

OP forgot to mention the smoke, which makes Chiang Rai and most of the north very undesirable for a few months each year.

Perhaps, Chiang Rai is much better off with less people like you settling in. Pattaya is probably the more appropriate place for you?

Last October, I visited Chiang Rai for the first time.

(A friend got a job at an elementary school there

so I went to visit him.) I stayed 4 days- I was supposed

to stay 6. I didn't like it. I didn't find the people at

all friendly and I guess I am too accustomed to

the non-stop "action" of Bangkok. As a "farang"

walking about, I was solicited for every little

"Massage Parlor" - that invariably was staffed

by middle-aged and above employees. Of course,

only "Traditional Thai Massages" were

available.

Granted, outside of town is a quiet, pleasant,

rural setting if you're already "attached" and

just want to settle-in with her.

Substitute 'highlight' for 'mention' (and apologies in advance for my initial poor choice of word smile.png
