    My wife and I are going to be in Thailand for approximately three and a half weeks during August (August 7-August 31). We will be on midrange backpacker budget (not the cheapest thing we can find, but nothing too expensive). Is there any need to reserve anything in advance, such as lodging/bus or train tickets/treks in Northern Thailand? Although I have done weeklong trips in Europe when I was studying abroad, I have not really done a long plan-as-you-go type trip like this one, but we want to leave the trip as flexible as we can without getting shut out from anything we want to do. Any suggestions would be great. Oh, by the way, we do plan on reserving something in Bangkok for the first two nights after we arrive.

    Generally no need to book in advance unless you have your heart set on a very specific resort and/or have no flxibility in your travel plans. Some book train tickets in advance and this can be sorted out before you arrive or just a day or so before your planned train trip.
