We will be 3 adults with large luggage. So should we take a taxi or Tuk Tuk from airport to the Diamond Park Inn? Are the taxis metered or set price? About what should we expect to pay?
Same question to the bus station or are we close enough to walk?
Upon arriving at Chiang Rai airport at 1 pm, we plan to visit the White Temple ourselves that afternoon. Will we have enough time to do this after hotel checkin, etc? What time does the temple close?
My research of this forum discloses a tuk tuk to temple should costs about 150 to 200 THB roundtrip with wait time of 1 hr at the temple - is this estimate correct? Is 1 hour long enough to see the temple? Is there anything else along the way that we may want to see if we have time?
Can we have the hotel call a tuk tuk or where should we go to get one by the Diamond Park Inn? If the hotel calls, can or should we still negotiate a price ?
Thanks for your help.
