Dan,
Take a look at Kanchanaburi. The bridge over the river Kwai is here, plenty to see/do for a few days. Raft or boat rides on the river, elephant rides, train ride and trekking close by. Check with a few travel shops and see if this appeals to you. I think you will have fun and meet other BPers while there.

Kanchanaburi is good plenty to do and see. Then on to Ayutthaya for a day or so. Can then bus or train up to Chaing Mai, maybe have a stop over at Sukothai on the way.

If you want any info on places or a couple of beers PM me, Im in Ayutthaya most evenings

Definately check out some of the North West from Chang Mai. There is a place called Pai which is a couple of horus drive from Chang Mai, picture mountains surrounding you, rivers, waterfalls, canyons, its an amazing place, and the people there are so friendly.

Also Mae Hong Son is supposed to be amazing too, our friends hired a car from Pai and drove round it, they said it was the highlight of their trip.

Is there a bus from Chang Mai, to Pai Beckiboo?
Maybe I will go there, next time I am in Thailand, if there is.
