Songthaew is cheap (no air con), if there is one happen to near you, can hire it. Price is 30baht per person, if more person can negotiate with the driver.

@roborovsky
Did you hire a private driver during your trip? I'm looking for 1, for a day trip, a car will be better. Usually private driver cum van, too big for 2 person.
@Andrew
Are you looking for a private driver?

4) if you are planning to drive around mountain region like Pai, Mae Hong Son etc with party of 3 and more, please rent a 2.0 sedan (e.g Camry) at minimum for the required power.

One of our rental car - 1.6 Nissan slyphy could barely go up the mountainous routes and need to disable the aircon.

Not true. More likely you are on auto gear and did not switch to Low gears
I’m driving a Honda City 1.0L turbo (equivalent to 1.6L) and have no problem at all, including Doi Ang Kang which has steeper slopes compared to Mae Hong Somg and Doi Inthanon

Ban Rak Thai is definitely worth visiting.
Can’t say the same for Pang Ung (but that’s just my personal opinion).
It’s nearby to Ban Rak Thai hence no harm swinging by

I haven't go Chiangmai yet, currently planning for my trip in Jan 2023.
Reading and watching alot on Chiang mai.

For 4-8 person, I think it's better to hire a driver cum car or van. Or rent a car or van, if the driving person got experience in driving mountain road. Doi Suthep road still ok but Doi Inthanon should be a challenge.

Songkran is ang mo favourite. Old City and river side hotel or airbnb should be ang mo best staying area.
Nimman road area is popular with chinese tourist, so I think this area should be less affected.
I also read Nimman is on the fight path when the flight take off. Last flight is around 6pm local time.
When I was choosing hotel and airbnb, I read the reviews. Few places are badly affected, but not all are affected. Nimman area has alot of resident house and condo. University is nearby.
Btw I pick airbnb LIV@NIMMAN Condo, only 1st floor airbnb available but with pool access. In soi 2, about 10 mins walk to One Nimman.
Saw AirAsia setup new flights from Feb but no price drop.
Eyeing a places near Santitham and the stretch between Nimman and old city.
Probably going to rent a car 60-120/day, cheaper than tour and can visit the more ulu recommended foodie places.
Interested in hearing how your trip goes(y)
