I will arrive in C/R on the Green bus from C/M Saturday afternoon my plan is..
1. Booked guest house for 3 nights near the clock tower, walk that area to get my bearings and visit the night market.
2.Sunday ,Monday ..check out immediate C/R area with a view to a longer stay in May (6 weeks)looking at accommodation options and meeting expats who have made the move.
3 Tuesday,Wednesday ..Travel to Border region to visit The Golden Triangle Park hall of opium, perhaps a crossing to Myanmar,....stay one night in Mae Salong return via boat from Thaton toC/r for flight to B/K 2030hrs Wed. 26th.
I would be grateful with advise on the best way to organise #3.
My planned return in May will allow me to fill in the gaps so no need to rush about this time.
I like hot springs, old bus and river transport but not Elephant driving or monkey shows, a hill tribe visit would be neat but not part of some tourist show.
Thank you for help and advise in advance. R.
