At the conclusion of the experience you’ll receive a drop-off at your Chiang Mai hotel.

The evening didn't start off well, we were picked up at our hotel 15minutes late and then we were delayed even further due to the driver having difficulty finding his next pick up. Eventually we arrived at the venue and were shown to our place for the meal etc. To our surprise we found that we had to sit on the floor with a pillow to lean on. Difficlut if you're a bit old person. Almost immediately we were served with drinks and the meal that came complete on a small table put in front of us. The meal was ok but nothing outstanding. Then the dancing/entertainment started almost immediately which was quite nice. However it seemed that it was all a bit of a rushed affair get you in, feed you and send you on your way. All in all not bad but fall short of what we expected.

It’s a nice experience to eat on the floor and watch a traditional Thai show. The food was very good and they offered refills. Drinks were not included and were necessary since the food was spicy. I was also ripped off with the cost of the transfer from my hotel. 950 BHT for a 10 minute drive...
