good morning ,
what would be the quickest way to get to thi lo su waterfalls from bangkok , i want to do this and be back in bangkok within 3 days 4 at most as i want to fly back down to phuket for some beach time on my holiday.
Grab a bus from Morchit station (Bangkok's northern terminal, accessable from the northern end of the BTS Skytrain) to Mae Sod (aka Mae Sot) in Tak province. Then grab a local songthaew (shared pickup taxi) for the twisty road to Umphang . Many local guesthouses and resorts in Umphang run trips to the Tilawsu waterfall daily. 3 or 4 days should be doable.
See bus schedule here for Bangkok to Mae Sod
Instead of returning to Bangkok, however, consider going to Chiang Mai and getting one of the direct flights from there to Phuket on Air Asia or Thai Airways.
cheers bob , that sounds like a plan , as i have never been as far north as chiang mai before i might book a few days there for some relax and fun , is it correct u have a guest house there , if so do u have a webb site , , i am in no rush as i wont being going to next april but i think it might be a good to spend songkran there , if so would u book a pre book a hotel / guest house
Yes it's good to pre-book rooms for Songkran period. I keep 8 cheap clean rooms aimed mostly at the backpacker market but we don't take pre-bookings, just rely on daily walk-ins. On sites like this I don't advertise, anyway you'll find a room somewhere in the old city.
