Welcome to Chiang Rai Thailand
Chiang Rai Thailand the largest northern city before Mayanmar. I travelled here in January and I was surprised at just how cold it can get here. It is not uncommon to see the dogs on the streets wearing jumpers.

Where to Stay?
Take a look at the Chiang Rai Hotel I have stayed in and reviewed
There are plenty of metered taxis operating in Chiang Rai as well as Tuk Tuks & motorcycle taxis.
In my travels I found the metered taxis to be at a very reasonable price and would recommend using them. As with anywhere in Thailand I recommend you avoid using Tuk Tuks unless you have no other option they are the most expensive and second most dangerous.
Chiang Rai is no different than anywhere else in Thailand when it comes to Tuk Tuks they are always on the lookout to charge as much as possible when they see a tourist.
There are two bus stations

Current Weather in Chiang Rai:
As mentioned earlier my first time in Chiang Rai was in January and it was COLD! I could not believe just how chili it can up here. Even street dogs are wearing jumpers. If you do not like cold weather perhaps visit here in the height of the Thai summer which is in the month of April.
