Posted by Captain_Bob on 10/10/2013 at 02:40

"Chiang Mai Getting Ready to Open Kiw Pa Wok Border Crossing to Burma in Chang Dao" It's 120 km due north of Chiang Mai, so border-hoppers might go up and back in a day or stop over at Chiang Dao, Doi Angkhang, Mae Ai, Thaton, etc. See a lonely but beautiful corner of the far north.

Any update on the temporary shut down of part of the train line north from BKK to Chiang Mai?

Posted by cheli on 2/10/2013 at 17:01

Hi all, I've read about how maintenance work on the northern train line from Bangkok to Chiang Mai has closed the route until October 31st. I came onto this forum to see if there's any update at this stage? We were hoping catch the train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai on Nov 17th. We've read that there's no way to book yet as there's likely to be a new timetable, but we're wondering if its going to be too hard to book and should consider flying instead? Urgh, flying! ...

The road to Sangkhlaburi

Hello, I've just read the feature story : "The road to Sangkhlaburi"! Greatness... Now I was wondering if there's any chance you can rent a motorbike for a single way trip? For example 2 day rent and leave it in Sangkhlaburi? One of the must sees is a visit to Khao Laem National Park. But on there website they mention it's a bit cold (min 10°) in December?! So no swimming in the waterfalls? There a lot of tips/hints in the article but any additions will be highly appreciated... I'm ...

This would be fine for me. where else would people suggest I stop? Is the bus the way to go? And how about a sleeper bus for any of ...
