Chiang Mai Travel Guide

Chiang Mai Travel Guide: Money Saving Tips

Go zip lining

If you are looking for adrenaline rush, go to the zip code. Chiang Mai has many operators offering special courses for beginners and advanced Zip Zip. The two largest companies are Flight of the Gibbon and Eagle Trekkers.

Go jungle trekking

This city is the main starting point for all types of jungle trips. I love those three best days but the longer the tour, the more interesting and lonely the places you visit. Be careful with who you sign up, because many guides simply walk with you and do not tell you much about land or wildlife. Moreover, if you visit a tribal village, make sure that the money remains with the villagers, and that they are not being exploited, which is what often happens here!

Take the cooking class

Chiang Mai is Thailand's most popular place for cooking lessons, and offers a large variety of amazing classes and deals. You start your class by going to the market and getting to know Thai products before returning to the kitchen to cook some dishes and eat a lot of food. Category pricing ranges from 800-1000 THB ($ 25-30).

Eat kantoke dinner

Experience both Northern Thai food and culture at the same time. At this event, visitors sit on the ground around a circular tray filled with northern dishes, eating while watching traditional and northern Thai dances and shows of the hill tribe culture.

 A cruise down the river

Wander into the Mae Ping countryside for a two-hour trip that will take you to the beautiful landscape in the heart of Chiang Mai. Enjoy the gentle speed of the boat. Stop by to visit a local farm and its grassy gardens and fruits - or relax and have a Thai dinner on board. It costs 240 THB ($ 8) one way, 450 THB ($ 14) for a round trip.

 Chat with the monks

Monk chats are an opportunity for visitors to learn about the country’s religion and culture, and for monks an opportunity to practice the English language. It is a popular cultural activity that takes place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1 pm to 3 pm in Wat Dok Suthep in the city.

Chiang Mai can be as cheap or expensive as you want (like most of Thailand). But if you stick to the local market, avoid the luxurious organic healthy restaurants that have appeared. And staying in the old city, you can save money easily! Here are some ways to save money in Chiang Mai:

Difficult bargaining - in all markets here, you have to bargain hard. Do not take the first price and are not afraid to get away. It's pretty much inflated here because Chiang Mai is a popular shopping destination for tourists.

 

Eating street stalls - Street food in Thailand is one of the best Thai food I've had, and it's also very cheap. You can easily get a bowl of noodle soup, Thai rice, or fried rice for 30 THB (US $ 1) locals eat here, you should eat here. Not only is it the best food around it, it's cheaper!

 

Take a songthaew - at 20 THB ($ 0.60) anywhere in the city, this is the cheapest way to get around (other than walking). They go everywhere and work all night. There is no reason to take a taxi around the city.

 

Couchsurf - Nothing is cheaper than sleeping for free. Couchsurfing connects you with locals who will not only give you a free place to stay, but also a local tour guide who can provide you with all the great places to see.
