My Itinerary in North Thailand

Travel booking, done! Airline tickets booking, done! There’s no turning back, I’m going to North Thailand on a group tour as my contest prize in a blog contest. I won’t be writing about how I feel anymore because I think I’m already becoming very redundant. Anyway, let me show you the itinerary of my Treasure of the North travel, compliments of Intrepid Travel and Dodo. I truly thank God for letting me win this contest!

— The itinerary they sent me—-

Day 1 Bangkok

Make the most of this bewitching city of skyscrapers and temples, chaos and calm. Sitting on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, Bangkok is a fusion of country and city influences. Why not arrive early and visit the dazzling Grand Palace and the majestic Emerald Buddha?

Day 2 Sukhothai

Cycling is the best way to see Thailand’s first capital, set amid leafy forests and perfumed gardens. Pedal between fertile rice paddies and enjoy the tranquility. A trip to the night market is a real eye-opener – the choices for dinner here range from fried rice to fried bugs.
Day 3 Lampang

Step back in time and tour Sukhothai’s fascinating temples by bicycle, stopping off at a local market and sharing a picnic. See the impressive murals of Wat Phra That Lampang Luang or enjoy some pampering at the local herbal sauna and massage centre.

Day 4 Homestay

Ride an elephant through the forest and stay to see bath time. Spend the evening in the home of our village friends and witness rural Thai life first-hand. Be treated to a traditional khan toke dinner accompanied by live music and a dance performance. In the morning, offer alms to the monks or stretch out with a yoga session.

Days 5-7 Chiang Mai

Take a relaxing soak in hot springs en route to Chiang Mai. Situated at the crossroads of one of South-East Asia’s most important trade routes, the northern capital is a legendary centre of ancient culture, adventure, relaxation and shopping. Bike between the temples, take a cooking class, cruise down the river on a bamboo raft or hone haggling skills at the markets.

Day 8 Bangkok

Celebrate the end of the adventure over a cold Singha. ( hmmm I would rather have an ice cold Coke!)
