    I'm going to be travelling down from Chiang Mai to Bangkok between the 10th- 17th August. I'll be travelling out of the cities to do the temple/sightseeing things probably from Chiang Mai itself, Sokhothai and Kanchanaburi. How easy is it to do day tours out of the city? For instance, I want to go to Si Satchanalai. Are there forms of public transport to get to places like this or do you have to hire guides and stuff?

    Thanks xx

    One thing you can count on, there WILL be travel agents in the various places you go that WILL organise everything you want: at a price.

    I hope you don't get offended, but many people are unaware that Travelfish has heaps of info. So, in case you haven't looked at the Travelfish info for the places you've cited check them out. For example, for Sukhothai go to:


    There, the 'header' links you to pages on sights & attractions, food & drink, etc.

    The link for Kanchanaburi is:


    Hope this helps.

    There are regular buses from Sukhothai to Si Satchanalai or, if you can ride a motorbike, you can hire one and ride it yourself.

    Kanchanaburi has more tour option than I've had hot breakfasts, so no problems there.

    If you're looking for a third place to break the trip, consider Ayutthaya .
