Interested in handweaving with natural dyes?

Very Short Thailand Stay

Posted by AlyssaAnne on 15/8/2009 at 12:24

Am considering flying Sydney to Bangkok (5/01/10) and staying a few days before getting a flight to Vientiane (9/01/10) as it seems better value than a straight trip to Vientiane. Is it stretching it to try and spend a couple of days (arrive evening on the 5th, fly early to Chiang Mai on the 6th and fly back late on the 7th)in Chiang Mai and return to Bangkok to spend a whole day on the 8th before flying out on the 9th? Best to do day trips around Bangkok and save the time and money othe ...
