    Hey all,

    I will be travelling to SEA from mid-July to mid September (just under 2 1/2 months). I have posted on Lonely Planet forums, but this site appears to be the best of the best when it comes to SEA, so I thought I would try and get some opinions on here as well.

    Since this is the Thailand destination part, I thought I would stick to that, and post my itinerary up for the other countries in the relevant sections. Here is my planned itinerary:

    Chiang Mai - 6 days (that includes some days for trekking as well as just the main town itself)
    Pai - 4 days
    Ayutthaya - 1 day
    Bangkok - 3 days
    Khao Yai NP - 2 1/2 days
    Kanchanaburi - 2 days

    What do people think of this? Anything I should add, change etc? I know I haven't involved the islands, but I figure I will do this on another trip. I want to do some trekking and stuff obviously, but also take in bits of the culture, and relax at some point.

    Also, rough budget for this time if I try to live cheap?

    Thanks people. I have posted up other itineraries for Vietnam (24 days), Cambodia (12 days), Laos (11 days)

    My only tip would be perhaps shorten the time in Chiang Mai to phaps 4 days and add a day to Pai and to Kanch. Trekking from Pai is a little less "commercial" than Chiang Mai, so you may find it better. Kanch has loads to do and with 3 days you could fin in a bit more, phaps a visit to Hellfire Pass Museum or one of the national parks.

    Your itinerary looks good. I have 1 suggestion. On your way from Chiang Mai to Ayutthaya, u can visit Sukhothai for a day. Like Ayutthaya, tourists come here for the ancient ruins of the palace and temples. The ruins here are older and also smaller.
