Other guides are now telling me that the heat will make it unbearable to wear such shoes and I should opt for a sandal instead. WHAT SHOULD […]

How long does a train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai take?

Or how long does a train (overnight?) take from Chiang Mai down to the southern tip of Thailand? I’m trying to plan a week vacation in Thailand, and I want to save money and not fly around if the trains are okay.

Thailand Elephant Trekking- Humane? – Chiang Mai?

I am wondering if there are non-abusive elephant camps in Chiang Mai? I see that there is the Elephant Nature Park, which looks fun, but quite pricey.
