Short-time bars are not as prevalent or obvious in Chiang Mai as say, in Pattaya etc. However, the same service is available at karaoke bars ( though I did not realise this to begin with ). The north of Thailand is far more conservative than the usual hotspots further south, but as someone has already said, there are plenty of girls everywhere -- you just have to know where to look. There are one or two bigger girlie bars, but they will charge you an entry fee ( rip off ), and the girls rarely remove their bikini's so don't wasteyour time going to them. I wish I could remember the soi, but there is one just off the walled ring road ( south side ), that has several bars and also an area where there are many bars surrounding a kick-boxing ring. Worth a visit.
Been there many times and enjoyed the city very much.
