Chiang Rai Travel Guide: Amazing Things to Do and Where to Go in North Thailand

Chiang Rai Travel Guide: Amazing Things to Do and Where to Go in North Thailand

Finding a reliable Chiang Rai travel guide is a little bit tricky, because even the most iconic landmarks of the city: the famous White Temple (Wat Rong Khun) and the Blue Temple (Wat Rong Suea Ten), are often listed on the list of places to visit from Chiang Mai instead of Chiang Rai.

While technically it's correct that you can visit Chiang Rai on a day trip from Chiang Mai, I feel like the city got less credit than it deserves when it comes to being one of the must-visit places in Thailand. Chiang Rai is the capital city of the province under the same name in North Thailand, so politically speaking, Chiang Rai is not even under the same province as Chiang Mai.

There are a lot of tour options from Chiang Mai that offer a package for a day trip to Chiang Rai, but here's a disclaimer… The whole day trip from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai is not suitable if you're a slow traveler. The trip is doable, but it will be a full-day trip since it will take around 3 hours by bus each way.

I may be biased, but now that I've been to both Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, I have to say that I like Chiang Rai better. So, in this Chiang Rai travel guide, I'm going to share everything you need to know about traveling to Chiang Rai. From things to do, where to go, and even renting a car in North Thailand. So, here we go!

Kafana Pavle Korcagin Belgrade

Kafana Pavle Korcagin – The Unique & Authentic Serbian Tavern in Belgrade

Traveling around Serbia isn't complete without having a sip of rakija and enjoying the authentic Serbian delicacy in the nearest kafana. When you visit Serbia, there's a chance that you'll get to visit the capital city in Belgrade. And while there are many restaurants in Belgrade, visiting Belgrade isn't complete without going to a kafana there. And in this post, I'm going to share a unique experience when I had a blast at Kafana Pavle Korcagin in Belgrade.

I found the information about Kafana Pavle Korcagin just a few months before my trip to Serbia. At the time, I was already a member of the group “Expats in Belgrade” on Facebook, and there was this member who shared a controversial post when he posted a link to the Youtube video about what he referred to as a communist pro-Serbian kafana in Belgrade.

As someone who has a particular interest in Yugoslavia's history in general, I decided to take a look and I was surprised by the existence of this tavern to the point that I made it to the top of my bucket list once I got to Belgrade.
