Hi there! My husband and I will be in Thailand for 16 days this April and will spend about 3 days in CM. I haven't planned much but would like to know from experienced visitors if this is a good itinerary:
5 Apr - Overnight Train #1 from Bangkok
6 Apr - 0830 (ish...often delayed) arrive by train, transit to hotel (Tamarind Village), nothing planned for most of the day, 1600-2000 Cooking Class with Baan Thai, Night Bazaar (also read about Sat night market somewhere?)
7 Apr - Nothing planned for daytime, dinner at a Riverside Restaurant, Sunday Walking Markets after dinner
8 Apr - Patara Elephant Farm all day
9 Apr - depart on early flight (0840) to Phuket
So, as you can see, not much planned out. Was thinking maybe of booking a half-day tour for the first day or maybe full-day for the 7th to see some Wats or handicraft centers? Any opinions on this? Should we just wander on our own instead?
