In Chiang Mai, like Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket you can get tours through local travel agencies if you want. Some hotels even have tour desks.

Trips from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai are popular. Some of these tours stop off at local Long Neck Women's villages and Golden Triangle. Trips to elephant camps, rafting trips and other local sites are popular.

Even if you take a minivan from Chang Mai to Pai, it takes a good 4-5hours one way.
In my opinion, Chang Rai is not so interesting.
However, around the hill and the caves at Chiang Dao are very nice. It is also a fabulous place to spend a night.
