    Hi,
    What is the recommended stay to get a good feel for Chiang Mai?

    We're on a tight schedule and thinking 2-3 days?

    Also, we would like to do some trekking. Is it recommended to get a tour guide/package deal or can we have a good experience without?

    Any thoughts welcome,

    Thanks,

    Maria

    Standard treks seem to last around three days so your schedule wouldn't allow you to take part in such an activity. There are one-day treks but how far can one walk in half a day ot a full day circuit including driving time? You would need a week at the very least to see Chiang Mai and go trekking but that would be cutting it fine - two weeks would be better.
