"What dangers of Thailand?" Northern Thailand Favorite Tip by bulldogtwo

Northern Thailand General: 7 reviews and 2 photos

Favorite thing: Couldn't agree more. It would also help to know your point of origin, where are you coming from?
You could also get another guide or even do it yourself. There are hundreds of web sites out there for you to plan a really good daily itinerary to keep the students busy and for them to learn something, again, not sure what your goals are, (fun, educational??) or where you are coming from. The monsoon season is somewhat educatioal it of itself. If you are coming from a non tropical point and have never experienced a monsoon in all it's glory it can be an experience!! Rain gear and proper footgear is a must if you do end up going. But that is not to say that it rains constantly either, you will have some decent weather as well, just that when it does rain, it can really come down, it thunderous!
A far as safety, using common sense and staying off the rivers, there shouldn't be any problems for you. It's like any big city with all the same cautions, although Chiang Mai isn't really all that "big."
Personally, I would never pass up a trip to Thailand. I would be very interested in what the problem was so if you are inclined write me back and let me know, I would also be more than happy to answer any other concerns that you may have.
Good Luck!
PS; Thailand is probably (my opinion) one of the most tourist friendly destinations in Asia.
