Ill be in Chiang Mai from Nov 15-Nov 22 for Loy Krathong festival specifially . My initial plan is spending first 3 nights in Chiang Mai, and the rest in Pai. Since its super peak season, I have already got my accommodation booked for first 3 nights in Chiang Mai and the following nights in Pai.
After doing some research about Lampang, I wish that I could squeeze in Lampang as a day trip from Chiang Mai, just wondering if thats doable? or simply too rush ? Also, is there any public bus or songthaew that runs between CM and Lampang ? Im a solo traveller on reasonably tight budget.
I just came back from CM in July actually, had about a week there, went to most of the 'must see' places including two days at the Elephant Nature Park which was truly amazing. I love CM so much that I decided to go back again in Nov for Loy Krathong and Pai. I suppose Im gonna more times to explore surrounding of CM this time.
All comments are welcomed. Thanks guys !
