This is a classic loop to left hand side of the northern Thailand explorer.

One of the most rewarding experiences in all of Thailand. Explore the best of Northern Thailand and most culturally important city.

I was surprised that this journey started in Sukhothai and request to skip Chiang Mai. That mean we will drop off at Chiang Rai. The journey was quite compact but we have a free time for leisurely and stops enroute in each day.

Let’s see what going on

We started off with a delay of 3 days as we still wanted to explore more the attractions around Sukhothai and we did not rush, the itinerary can be flexible because it is not during on any long weekend.

And we changed our plans on the first day of schedule. Previously, we plan go to stay 1 night at Mae Sot District on the Burmese border. But we change to Mae Sariang District and drive 1 day directly to relax there 2 more nights.

So for 2-3 days, we drive to travel around Sukhothai.

If you have more travel days. Let try to planning a trip in Sukhothai, it’s very interesting. There are 2 Historical Parks and National Park to do natural activities. Moreover, there are a lot of local food is abundant.

Ep. #1

Day 1

This is a travel style that I like. 10 years ago Thailand without internet and booking online. I have been drove with a cute family 4 people (Daddy, Mom and 2 Kids) start from Lotus Village. We hang around Sukhothai Heritage 3 days before going on. We had fun, they enjoyed looking for the restaurant where to eat and hotel where to stay for the best choice in a day by day. Sometime, we skip planning out and stay around swimming pool whole day.
