My boyfriend and I will be travelling to Chiang Mai for the first time in January next year.
we arrive at midday on a Sunday and depart at 3pm the following Thursday.
Any advice on the best things to do/place to stay in our limited time would be much appreciated (I am gradually getting through lots of posts on the forum)
We are in our late 20's, are more rugged/rustic/personal accommodation sort of people than upmarket hotels.
I like shopping and he likes adventure :) Would love to do a trek of some form and get to see a bit of the beautiful areas and learn more about the culture.
This will be the last leg of our trip having just spent 10 days with my whole family down in the Kata area, then 5 days in Koh Lanta alone and 3 days in Bangkok alone.
All advice is welcomed :)
