Hi

Lampang is not touristy area there for I don't think they would have tour agency as such( I have never seen one) Your best option is to get a tour guide and / or driver from chiang Mai. Or if you want to dot it yourself is pretty easy to do. Just check in one of the hotel or guest house ( R-Lampang very pretty old fashion house not far from the river you can hire a bicycle) and I'm sure the people at the guest house can help you out with all directions. Most people on the street will speak basic English you will get by just fine.

thank you sweetpea, we'll just wait until we get to Lampang and see how things develop. Going through the quest house in Lampang makes the most sense. can you tell me anything about the Lampang Herb Conservation Assembly? their website is in Thai with no english translation.

Hi

Sorry I didn't get back to you soon enough. I have never been to herb conservation. I did had a look but I couldn't find much on the website either. Its sounds like community run program as they said they have over 150 members. They are not far from city center if you have time to spare I think it's worth to have a look. Maybe hire songtheaw to take you there and they can pick you up later. I agree wait until you get there and I'm sure the people at the guesthouse will sort that out for you. All the guesthouse are family run and some of them speak English very well. Another guesthouse to look at is riverside guesthouse right on the river bank( hence the name)

Good luck
