How long in Chiang Mai?

Posted by mariamini on 3/8/2007 at 14:12

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,

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.

I stayed 6 days and it wasnt enough.. I am heading back and planning on staying another 6-8 days.

It is an awesome place.
