Resolved Question: Muay Thai gyms in Chiang
Is Chiang Rai cheaper than Chiang Mai? I like your sarcasm Charles. Actually, I did Google search and the only gym that came up is apparently closed down now, hence the reason there is no access to the website. And thanks for the link User, but Team Quest is in Chiang Mai. If I go to Chiang Mai, I will train at Lanna, but was hoping something would be in Chiang Rai.. might end up just going to Chiang Mai.

Resolved Question: China, Philippines, Laos,
BEFORE ANSWERING - READ THE WHOLE POST!
I'm looking for somewhere that is:
Full of culture and different from the UK/Western world. Somewhere with different ways of living and not like the Western world. I don't care if some people may find it hard to adapt or understand it but I just like seeing a different lifestyle/society/traditions. I like places where the people haven't moved into the Western way of living and have that friendly style.
Also somewhere with beautiful natural landscapes and picturesque places of natural beauty. So NOT big, polluted cities!!
Also somewhere cheap, and preferably not full of tourists.
This Summer I want to go back to Asia. I could go for a maximum of 3 months (although most likely 2 months)
I have already been to Thailand and Cambodia. But I only saw the south/middle of Thailand (krabi, phuket, koh samui etc and bangkok too). While I really liked Cambodia but only saw it so briefly and didn't even see Angkor Watt. So I want to only see the NORTH of thailand (eg chiang mai and places like that), and see Cambodia all over again in more detail and maybe go to a rural village. I also know Muay Thai and would love to train for a short while over there too.
When I was in Asia last time, I wanted to see the Philippines but ran out of time. So I made it a priority to see the country this time when I go back. However with the winds in the area before, I don't know how much of the Philippines has been affected.
Laos has always appealed to me as there seems to be lots of waterfalls, lakes, rivers etc. And the people are meant to be super friendly which I love!
China is a big place but once you leave the big stuffy cities there seems to be loads of stunning scenery and natural places of extreme beauty that I would love to see. And the healthy eating/green tea! I would like to visit the small villages.
Which of these countries would be best for me? And sadly I don't think I can visit all of them so which would you say is not right for me/does not meet what I am looking for...?
