    Chiang Mai or bUsT

    I'm renting a house up there and going to live like a farang hick for a year. Gotta get the fVck out of here! Going nuts with these tourists! Arghhh!

    Last time I stayed in Chiang Rai. Bored out of my mind but SO peaceful up there and such nice and cool weather.

    I'll be renting a house for about 15k monthly. I think that should be enough. Will I go crazy from the boredom?

    I'm just a bit tired of Pattaya and need a long break. Been under the tourist onslaught nearly a year.

    What makes you think you'll grow an imagination and do something besides drinking just because you've moved to a different part of the country?

    Probably.

    Being stuck in traffic will contribute to extensive boredom. This town (happen to be spending a few days up here myself) has grown big-time and the traffic is worse (in my humble opinion) than Bangkok.

    Hoards of tourists at Doi Sutep and in the Tae Pae Gate area. Backpackers up the ass. Arrogant European chicks hanging out at Starbucks with their skimpy halter tops and gross tats.

    C.M used to be a pretty decent town but it's too big now...

    Third rate tourists, third rate town, third rate weather, get ready for the onslaught of burning rice fields pollution and and continuously dirt filled streets and air.

    Chiang Mai is good perhaps about three months a year. Seedy place IMO.

    Traffic is bad everywhere and it's not just my opinion it's as bad as BKK - even the locals call it that.

    No taxi cabs either. Just those red baht buses and tuk tuks so you get real lung fulls of exhaust.

    It's your home so you have to like it we suppose...

    the locals have probably never been to Bkk

    so your opinion is still worthless

    and there are Taxicabs, you just don't know about them

    It is somewhere I like to live, but your whingeing doesn't change a thing

    I don't HAVE to like it, I do

    Is your life full of awkward compromises, is that why you assume others' are?
    I have reported your post

    I disagree - I think that Chiang Mai girls are much uglier than thos einother parts of the country.
    Mind you, beauty in the eye of the beholder and all that...
