Hey Carey, I just did a quick search and found a bunch with really great reviews on TripAdvisor:

If you don't get any joy there I can highly recommend the Jolly Frog backpackers down on the river (one of the best places I've stayed at.) You can get a cheap floating room ON the river and watch the sun go down with a cold Singha. Bliss.

Good luck.. thumbsup.png

Sorry off topic, you know what?! I don't like Singha! After all the hype for this beer, I'd choose Leo any day.

Maybe it's because I'm a girl...

So carey, don't listen to Scott, drink the Leo, not the Singha.

Chang's good. There's definitely something lethal in it cos' I had plenty of Changovers and I don't normally. Leo's not a bad drop. Nice price too..

Hehe, I think what we're trying to say here, in a round about kind of way... is just try them all and find your own favourite.

Changovers...ahahahah good one!

Yeah, Leo was good. Maybe Chang was just more available now that i think of it? I can't remember,b but it's pretty good too. Really don't like the Singha much anyway.

I drank the Chang because it was 10 baht cheaper than Singha and I'm a tight bastard!

But that's the best thing about the Chang, you never know what you're going to get. Could be 2%, could be 15% smile.gif

I like it. Wish it was like that here.

We can't even drink milk straight from the cow here. It must be pasteurized first.

I advice The Lake Heaven Resort at Srinakarint Dam.
Furthermore if you have much more time , Khaolam Dam and Sangkgaburee Thai-Burma border is the local life and nutural place
during Nov-Dec the weather seem Chiangmai.
