[QUOTE] Nobi's amazing wall of detailed and precious information Gosh. I knew the Cafe would not disappoint, but this is something else. Thank you very much![/QUOTE] XD :D You're very welcome. I looooove travelling and also playing tour guide for travellers. [QUOTE]Just one thing: if November is a no-no from an air quality perspective, when would be the best time to visit to prevent asthma issues? October? December? Maybe January?[/QUOTE] Correction to what i said previously. Burning season traditionally starts in January, so the very worst months tend to be Jan-March. However, from my experience I've smelled smoke in the air as early as November. November and December will still be much lighter than Jan - March, so if November is the best time for you to travel I'd stick with that. Burning season is particularly a problem in Chiang Mai since it's nestled inside a mountain range which traps in a lot of the pollution (like Beijing). If you're going to the beach or Bangkok you won't notice it. [QUOTE]I like how you leave subtle hints about alcohol and partying and debauchery like that you assume that's the kind of things I would be [/QUOTE] Haha well I don't judge (too much!). I'm just trying to be considerate! I know there are many reasons why people visit Thailand haha. I recently had a friend show up in Chiang Mai and essentially tell me "hey wtf where are all the hookers and blow? This is NOTHING like Bangkok!" and I was like "uh ... that's not really what people come to Chiang Mai for ..." I mean you can do that stuff here too, but it's not on the insane scale that you can do it in Bangkok. [QUOTE] "Bug Zoo"[/QUOTE] Ah! Nice! I always mention this place to people and outside of a few close friends (always other artists or Kamen Rider fans) no one ever goes! But [URL=http://www.siaminsectzoo.com/]the Siam Insect Zoo is SO COOL[/URL]. It's a ZOO not a MUSEUM, so you get to [URL=http://www.siaminsectzoo.com/forum/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=14&extra=page%3D1]handle giant awesome live insects[/URL]! Giant Stick Bugs! Scorpions! Beetles from all over Asia and even South America! The gigantic phallic grubs that will turn into them! Caterpillars that will turn into beeautiful butterflies! It's sooooooo cooooooooooool. It's located in an area called Mae Rim, which is where a lot of the animal/outdoors attractions are. So if you wanna wash an elephant, ride an ATV, shoot a gun etc, you can do all that in the same day while you're out there. [QUOTE]Taking good note of this invaluable Thailand for my own...purposes in the future, as well. [/QUOTE] [QUOTE]Nobi has just sold Chiang Mai to me... I think I already know where I'm gonna spend this year's Golden Week holidays! [/QUOTE] I look forward to seeing you guys again! Iggy, I hope we get to meet in person sometime this year!
