5 days: Bangkok & Chiang Mai

Jump to last reply

Hello! My family and I will be visiting Thailand for the first time this coming January. We are so excited. We will only be staying for five days.

5 days is definitely not enough time but I'd like to make the most of our trip as much as possible. Our itinerary for our short trip looks somewhat like this

02 Jan: Bangkok
03 Jan: Bangkok
04 Jan: Chiang Mai
05 Jan: Chiang Mai
06 Jan: Bangkok

We're hoping to take an overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai on the evening of January 3rd and arrive in Chiang Mai early morning January 4th. We'd leave Chiang Mai on January 6th in the morning and arrive late evening in Bangkok for our 11pm flight.

We're really interested in seeing more of the cultural sites (temples, floating market, etc) and elephants and tigers. We're not that into shopping but would probably want to see the city at night.

Is this itinerary doable?
Are there overnight trains to and from Chiang Mai?


Would appreciate any insight and suggestions!!!

Thanks,
Elisa
