    Has anyone ever visit?
    Looks very beautiful but don't see many people talking about it.
    This is what I found:

    Looks nice for a night stay.

    Does anyone recommend doing a loop in northern thailand by rental car? Will be travelling in late july and I'm worried about safety in the winding wet roads. Also think it might be better a car when it's raining just so I don't get all wet.

    How do u know the roads will be wet?

    Have u never driven in rain before?

    The best thing to do in the north is hire a car. Chiang mai is pretty boring and overrun with tourists.

    Hi Leonard.
    I don't know that. But at that time of year it will be nearly impossible not to encounter rain not a single day.
    Anyway, I'm just worried because heard some people saying it was dangerous so I thought I would get an opinion since I do really want to do that.
    I have driven in rain, but as I've never been there I don't know the condition of the roads compared to my country.
    I'm glad it's OK and that you think it's a good idea. I do wish to do some sort of loop and I saw the ones here on travelfish but I am still deciding the places I want to see the most, wanna give me any tips?

    Another question, I heard people saying I would have to leave my passport in the rental place but I don't want to. Is there any way to get around this?
    And I do need to get an international drivers license right?

    I visit Thailand in july often and most days are sunny. I dont know where u get the rainy everyday from. Bit of a myth.

    Thai roads are pretty good. The most dangerous places to drive r the big cities.

    U keep yr passport. Only fools give it up. They will just photocopy it.



    North wheels is a good car hire place.


    Northwheels.com

    Internation licence is needed for insurance claim if u crash. Can hire without one but best to be safe. They only cost about 30 dollars
