  1. Hello. I’m vladimir. I will be visiting Chiangmai July 21-24 and would love to join the hike tomorrow. But I will be arriving at 730am by bus from Rayong. So I was wondering if you think I could make it to the meeting place in 10 minutes and if so how much would a taxi or tuk tuk ride from the bus station. And could I have someone’s phone number so I could text in case my bus is late and I wont be making it for the hike. Thank you
