Just about an hour outside of Chiang Mai, in Hangdong District, is Baan Tawai village, a community known for its wood sculptures. Visitors can take a look around at markets and interact with wood carvers. Crafts are available for purchase.

A short ride from Chang Mai is a large bazaar for every handicraft you can imagine. A lot the usual junk at cheap prices. We always like to buy something nicer and were pleased to find two higher-end vendors. On the left side of the...More
Visited here via a red truck from town (Bt300 ) for two. We're lucky enough to find local Buddhist festival occurring in local temple.
The wood carving on offers ranges from mass produced decorative items to artisanal pieces of carving and furniture.

Not your usual Chinese mass-produced garbage. Mostly carved wood items, (including the stuff you see at the night market, just cheaper), but you'll also find furniture, linens, jewelry, antiques and paintings. Bargaining is acceptable, but be polite, please.

A girls shopping trip and the best was the village of Baan Tawai. I found everything I wanted and had a shipment sent home of bronze, wood and sculpture. All price ranges and worth a day or two of shopping.

Many of the shops you can see the owners working on the products they display.
They all ship very reasonably so...More

I think that reader is referring to the cost for riding the baht bus. This is a covered pickup truck with seats-benches in the back for up to 8 people. The 30 baht price is only for LOCAL travel. If you go to Ban Tawai from Chiang Mai, you'll need to negotiate a price for your group BEFORE you go; often 120 - 150 BT each person for the day. The driver will wait on you while you shop and lunch etc.
$1 USD is 33 Thai Baht or TB. Hope this helps
