Am considering living for half the year in one of these cities. Have begun doing my research, and may take a recon trip there later this year, but would appreciate any feedback from MP folks who have lived or visited either or both places. Seems like the weather is similar, Chiang Rai a lot smaller, but seems to have enough to satisfy and expat and may be a bit less expensive. Any feedback from experienced Thailand residents/travelers would be much appreciated. Thanks!
