All markets of Chiang Mai - opening times, map, description

There are many markets in Chiang Mai wherefrom products to clothing and other accessories. Moreover, some markets are not stationary, but appear on a street fenced off specifically for this purpose only on certain days, for example, Saturdays or Sundays. In the markets you can find Thai handmade, which is brought from all over the province. There are quite amusing things.

Prices in Chiang Mai are quite normal in the marketsespecially on those on weekends. But in the southern part of Thailand, it seemed to me that on Wallking Street on Samui and in Ao Nang everything was also more expensive than if I took it somewhere else nearby. True, I mostly compared the food. After all, each market is primarily Thai fast food. :)

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
