I am in Bangkok and am headign upto Chiang Mai next monday 5th October. Does anyone want to join me in Chiang Mai and does anyone know what good things to do while I am there. Bangkok has got a bit too much for me now and I need to escape.
When I went to Chaing Mai we went to an elephant sanctuary, had a trip on a raft, an ox cart ride, we went to visit a temple on a high hill, we went to the highest point in Thailand, we visited a parasol factory, we looked at rice paddies etc.
It was lovely, also the night market was very close to where we stayed.
It is much calmer in Chaing Mai not so chaotic as Bangkok.
Thats what i am hoping for, i am seriously all Bnagkoked out now. Its like Marmite, i love it,then i hate it. Looking forward to Chiang Mai. Are you still in Thailand or were you here on holiday.
No sorry I was on holiday a few years ago.
We had an hour flight from Bangkok to Chaing Mai, we were there four or five days.
The temple is called Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, it is 15km away from Chaing Mai and located in the mountains, you can reach it by tram or 309 steps. We went by tram and walked down. Fantastic views of chaing Mai from the top.
