Thanks for all of the help from our TA friends in planning our trip!! Chapter I-Chiang Mai: our pick-up from the airport by Baan Orapin went smoothly with the exception of confusion that we were arriving domestic, not international. Taken to Baan Orapin and oriented. We went for lunch down the street at The Gallery-great setting on the river with good food. Took a nap, went to the pool and then, to friend's for dinner. Day 2, we walked around the old city, visiting a few wats and took a...More

A couple of comments - The Floating market is a very early start and usually takes up a half day at least on its own. You are picking up clothes right before you fly home. If you visit a tailor at home, you'd have a couple of fittings at least, why take a chance here? If anything is not quite right, you have no time to get it fixed. IMO you are trying to fit too much in; its hot and humid, and you need a slower pace. As for Patpong, Iwould strongly advise walk through the market but don't...More
