Northern Thailand At A Glance
Bangkok = cocktails, markets, massages. Sukhothai = bicycles, temples. Chiang Mai = more temples, massages, Asian elephants. Doi Mae Salong = relaxation, tea drinking, hilltribe market. Golden Triangle = long-tail boat rides, hilltribe markets, even more temples. Northern Thailand = awesome.
It’s only a quickie, but in that time we’ll get you on a bike, a sleeper train, a songthaew, a taxi, a tuk-tuk and a bus with the locals (if you’re nice they’ll even share their snacks).
- Dumbo isn't the only elephant that needs saving. Travel by private mini van (not in the trunk) to the Friends of the Asian Elephant Hospital and witness the awesome work these guys do on a daily basis.
- Bike? Check. Shades? Check. Wind in your hair? Check. Sukhothai's Historical Park is the kind of dreamscape you don't have to wake up from. Unless the park closes that is.
- Swing 'til your winning and zip through the canopies at Flight of the Gabbon, an optional activity that will get your heart racing. This is just another brilliant excuse to act like a cheeky little monkey.
- Feel like one of the locals on an overnight train from Chiang Mai to Bangkok. Grab some snacks from the on-board vendors, utilise your phrase book and embrace this unique journey.
