cool bamboo accommodations in Chiang Rai
« on: August 20, 2012, 07:27:28 PM »
I'm looking for an 'authentic" hill tribe experience for an upcoming trip to Chiang Rai:

Does anybody have any experience with either:

1. Bamboo Nest

2. Lanjia Lodge

Thanks so much.

Never stayed at either, but 'authentic culture' is best experienced by just going into villages and looking around. If they are catering to a westerner so much, it's not going to be authentic.

Consider doing homestays through an NGO.

Also, research human zoo tourism in Thailand to know what NOT to do.
