This is on my todo list. Anybody wanna do a two week vacation with me.
Dutch and to anybody else.
I lived in Lampang (1.5 hours south of Chang Mai) for two years and traveled though out the rest of the country. Granted, I came home in 2001 and my Thai is a little rusty, but I would be tour guide if you're willing to chip in on my airfare.
To the OP, you'll more than likely find plenty of awesome trees with amazing scenery, but I'm not too sure how the locals will react to a "farang" hanging from them.
Thai teasers........for those thinking of going, go for it !
Village bus driver winding down between rides....
Rope hammocks are available everywhere.
Set price, all you can eat foodhall, Chiangmai....cheap & tasty.
And if you really want to step back in time, try Burma(Myanmar) & Laos.
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.
