This thread is marked as being about Chiang Mai

Hey, so myself and my boyfriend will be taking the night train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai in June and staying there for a week. We don't want to get this back, would perfer maybe a bus and stop in a few places on our way back down. Is there places worth seeing that ye would recommend and how long for??

hey, im thinking of doing the same with my boyf, we've been to southern thailand before but never up north. what date will you be in chiang mai? looking froward to hearing some peoples reponses here. hopefully the weather wont be bad, the floods are awful at the moment, especially for this time of year!

I cycled on that route and the places I found the nicest were:
- phitsanulok for being a sizeable and enjoyable thai city with relatively few tourists and great night market
- ayutthaya for it relaxed atmosphere and less touristy but still beautiful temples

Don't miss the sugarcane juice! :)
