Please advise if there are any resorts next to a waterfall, where we can see the waterfall from the balcony? Also if there are any resort / chalets / cottages with open air jacuzzi bath attached with room.
Am contemplating a vacation either in CHiang Mai or Samui. which is better? Any tips on Trang & Mae hong son? Its a trip for me & my husband, prefer a very peaceful secluded place with natural breathtaking scenic beauty.
Have already been to kanchanaburi, rayong, khao yai etc.
A !st most Jacuzzi’s in thailand are NOT heated. There are many places to stay near waterfalls including camping by them.
If you are tired of the beaches and the tourist, come to Chaing Rai, A LOT more of whar Thailand was like before too many touriat hit it.
Here we have elephants, monkeys, nature waterfalls hot springs, and you can catch a long tail boat going up the Mae Kok river for about $12.00 US There are many places to stayt along the river, some are VERY secluded. Most are simple and some are stunning. but at a much lower cost than the islands mor Chaing Mai.
Thats why I live here silly
Speaking of Chiang Mai by air, one of the recurring concerns in recent times relating to the air of Chiang Mai is its quality — it can be downright hazardous at certain times of the year. Check out this March 30, 2012, article in Telegraph.co.uk titled Thailand: pollution puts Chiang Mai off the tourist trail.
And from OurChiangMai.com:
Air Pollution In Chiang Mai, Thailand
That time of the year is upon us once again, the time where Chiang Mai and the surrounding provinces become a dangerous place to live and breathe.
For the lucky few, it’s time to pack up your bags and leave Chiang Mai for a few months, for most it’s the time where breathing becomes difficult, the smog becomes unbearable and the air quality in Chiang Mai reaches hazardous levels.
To help keep you up-to-date and to plan your days, we have added a new page for users to check the latest official air quality figures from Chiang Mai and selected locations across Thailand – Air Pollution in Chiang Mai, Thailand in a quick and simple way. An example of what you can expect to find can be seen here.
Avail yourself of the two gauges that page offers — the easy explanation for them lies lower down on that page. I just hope that the gauges truly do update daily — they just look like static images to me.
As for flights to Chiang Mai, I find the official Chiang Mai Airport Guide website to be very unhelpful. The flight status page only offers the website visitor an option of viewing flights within three-hour blocks, when it would be far more helpful to see the current day’s full roster of inbound or outbound flights.
Consequently, I recommend instead referring to a website called FlightStats: (CNX) Chiang Mai International Airport Arrivals. It shows all of the arriving flights for the first half of the current day in Thailand; and the option is beneath the chart to select the chart displaying the arrivals for the next half of the day. You can see the origin city of each flight.
I did not mention it earlier, but I am doing an edit to this post on September 30, 2012. Here are a few somewhat Chiang Mai-related further references that may be of some interest:
