¡just Arrived To Chiang Mai! ¡your Advise,please!


Recommended Posts

¡Hi everyone!

I have just arrived to Chiang Mai in order to stay here and I would like to ask for your advise in the following topics

Which bank and where is suitable for foreigners?

Where can I hire a motorcycle?

Where can I find a good cooking course? I heard somebody talking in this forum about an old lady that was very good. I just would like to go one or two days per week.

Where should I buy a mobile phone and which company is better to use?

Any recomendations about areas to rent a house or a condo. I don´t mind if it is a little bit outside the city centre

Which day and at what time is next Tuskers newcomers day?

Any recomendations about a good massage parlour?

Sorry for asking so many questions that probably have been answered many times but I will save quite a lot of time going around with your help.

¡Thanks a lot four your advises! :o

Cheers,

Thank you very much Steve. I found out most of the information needed. The rest I will find out probably walking around. What I don´t find is which is the next Wednesday with a newcomers dinner at Tuskers.

Thanks for your help,

Cheers,

Take lots of advice from many sources. Don't jump in too quickly. Weigh the advice carefully particularly if from a farang business. Farang visitors/ expats are their niche market. Do you have any trusted Thai friends - perhaps make some -

And there is no such thing as a free lunch - particularly in thailand.

Welcome to CM.

KASIKORN BANK seems to be the easiest and most friendly for foreigners to open and account... I also use SCB ... purple bank.

AIS or DTAC... if you want 3G... 3GSM... but only in the city. I have had issues with consistent GPRS signal with DTAC... it is hit or miss for everyone :-)

I would try DOI SAKET or HANG DONG area... if you don't mind living 10+ KM outside the city then MAE RIM is popular and cheap.

Find a nice Thai Girlfriend to teach you to cook :-)

Depends on the type of massage you want :-)

Where can I hire a motorcycle?

ask any tuk tuk driver to take you to Mr Beer motorbike rentals.

when at his place, look right and go up the street then make a left and you will see another place with better prices and newer bikes.

Beer is ok though and easy to get along with.
