Chiang Mai On the Web - Interesting Sites and Pages about Chiang Mai
Here are some interesting links worth checking out: The information about Chiang Mai available on the web is growing with the city and its popularity. Well, it also helps that there are many competent bloggers with new insights moving to Chiang Mai.
- Chiang Mai Citylife All the news about Chiang Mai, some translated from Thai sources. Always readable and well researched. Also some editorial articles by talented local expat author James Austin Farrell.
- Dining Chiang Mai Chiang Mai is full of great restaurants, and it's full of crappy restaurants. As with most things in Thailand, the façade is usually o.k., even appealing. But there might be something sinister lurking in the kitchen that will be served on your plate. The author has very thorough and detailed reviews of many restaurants in Chiang Mai. Much better than the very questionable Tripadvisor reviews complaining they don't get authentic Sauerkraut in Northern Thailand or the waitress didn't understand their Cockney accents (be sure to prepend www to the URL of this site, the plan diningchiangmai.com won't work). **UPDATE: Sadly, diningchiangmai.com is now defunct.**
- Golden Triangle Rider The original motorcycling exchange and forum for Northern Thailand and beyond. The forum is busy and the pics are hot.
- Ride Asia Motorcycling forum covering Asia and especially Thailand from a base in Chiang Mai. There are some inspiring and inspired reports of tours into neighboring countries, especially the up-and-coming journeys far into China.
