Welcome to the rose of the north (Chiangmai), and the Lanna culture is quite distinct from north east (Isaan), central and south. See my reply to Bonut 2 weeks back: https://www.singsupplies.com/thread...ving-in-thailand.107933/page-880#post-2693733 As for car rental, there are counters on arrivals on 1st floor (next to international arrivals section). CNX airport is easy to navigate, nothing like Swampy. You can also choose the 2nd tier setups (not Avis, Hertz). Minus driver in low season starts from thb700/800: http://www.carrental-chiangmai.com/ Go read up on CNX sights by official Thai tourist board: https://www.tourismthailand.org/About-Thailand/Destination/Chiang-Mai I'll leave your inquiry on Bkk Peppe's to gourmet Froggy.
