Hi everyone, been reading posts avidly for weeks. My husband and I are travelling to Chiang Mai for the first time in mid February. I'm really looking forward to this as I have only been out of Australia once and that was to Phuket. I have only booked my day with the elephants so far as I want to do that on my birthday. My question is, will I be wise to book in advance for things like Flight of the Gibbon, Araiwah Bike Tours and hiring a driver or will I be reasonably safe in organising when I arrive? We are spending 12 nights there so I do have a bit of time on my hands to play with but I don't want to get caught short, so to speak. Any advice from Chiang Mai experts will be avidly read! And thanks in advance.
