Hi. My husband and I are traveling from Laos to Chiang Mai in February. We have about 6 days to be in the area ( 2 additional days at the elephant sanctuary). We were wondering whether there is enough to do in The Chiang Mai area or should we split the time between Chiang Mai and Chai Rai? We were also wondering if we can take local buses to outlying areas of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai and what small villages should we visit?
