We spent our Christmas here in Chiang Mai and fascinated with the beauty of the place. We plan 1month ahead before heading to Chiang Mai, and Chiang Rai via an agency that we knew. We were lucky to have a discount as we booked our ticket at 12go.asia back and forth. I know everyone is not in favor of riding a bus to Chiang Mai and prefer plane instead, though we are enjoying the ride—if you are as well. Cheaper! So here’s a guide for you.
Here’s how to get to Chiang Mai by Bus, Train, and Flight:

>Remember that peak season is between November and early April, better to book your ticket ahead of time.

We stayed in the Trekker Camp for 2nights and 3days and we paid only 300bhat per night. Amazing isn’t it? The residence offers a free bike as well, which we enjoyed so much. And as for our tour, we booked our 2 days adventure (including Chiang Rai adventure) via Lanna Tour Services which cost as lesser than we expected.
