Contributed by: Noam Hazan | Last Date of Travel: August 2007

1. Kosher Info: All Chabads have the same sort of set up. Kosher Restaurant, Free Internet, Minyans usually 3 times a day and free Friday night meals. The Chabad is found on Chang Klan street by the Empress Hotel.

2. Tourist Info: Make sure while you are in Chiang Mai to do either the jeep tour or the 2/3 day trek through the jungle. Both usually include Elephant ride, Rafting, Bamboo Rafting and lots of walking. You also get to visit local villages and if your lucky stay with the Long neck tribe. Buy a pan, rice and maybe some veg to take with you or just lots of Sour Cream Pringles (with an OU) for the journey. The Red Brick Hostel is one of the many hostels that organise these trips.

3 Jewish Info: Shul and Friday night at Chabad. Contact: Rabbi Mosher Hadad | Tel: +66(0)5 3279015 | Mobile: +66(0)81 8702249 | Email: [email protected]
