    Never been there but I do want to hear about your trip when you get back

    Lots of places to hang, hanger4life.
    It's part of the thai culture.

    Around Chiang Mai there's a lifetime of mountains, waterfalls,
    hotsprings, caves etc to explore & hang around in.
    Huay Tung Tao reservoir on the outskirts of Chiangmai has some quaint
    shady bamboo shacks along the shoreline, some with hammocks,
    where you can fish, swim or just lazeaway the day.
    From the restaurants dotted along the shore, try the 'jumping shrimps'.
    Hire a scooter / motorbike to get around & grab yourself a map.

    Great food at some of the squid pier restaurants & the night market in Hua Hin.
    Again there are some N.Parks close by.

    After your long flight over, make sure you get yourself a 2hr Traditional Thai Massage,
    that'll fix all your travel aches & pains, before you
    head out on your asian adventure.

    Don't worry about the leeches....just think of them as baby love bites !
    Enough talking....let's get walking !
    Mountain views are good for the soul....& getting to them is good for my waistline.

    Don't stay long in Bankok, it is a big noisy city, and there are so many nicer areas away from there. ofuros, that was some great information. Wish I was on hammock forums back in 2006 and 2008 when I visited Thailand. Your information would have been awesome.
    Also, if you get a chance to go to any ofthe islands, they are wonderful. I spent an entire day with a Thai guide touring around the island of Ko Samui. Riding an elephant so cool. also, went ziplining in the forest.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    Back when I was in Indo China , we were almost as afraid of those as we were the little guys with AKs . I still hate centipedes to this day . I saw some guy on Anthony Bourdains travel show , stir frying a batch of them tho so I guess you can get used to them .
