I thought we'd have more time in Chaing Mai for two motorcycle trips, one for the MHS loop and one for Chaing Rai. However, my wife and brother-in-law want to go to S. Thailand (specifically the "James Bond Island"....for some reason...I just can't get excited about it), so that limits the time in Chaing Mai. Chaing Rai was on my personal 'to see' list, but after reading about the MHS loop and motorcycles...well, hard to pass up. Ends up we'll only have 3 days to ride. I would like to see the/a "long-neck tribe" if possible. Are there any long-neck tribe villages along the MHS loop and where? Where are they in/near Chiang Rai? Any other beaches you can recommend to see that would be as scenic (mountain cliffs, steep rock islands) that would keep us out of Phuket? How is the weather in S. Thailand 1st week of Nov usually?
