Chiang Mai OR Luang Prabang

Jump to last reply

Here are the parameters:
We're trying to figure what to do for the last leg of our 3 week trip...

We'll have spent 3 days in Bangkok
9 days in Myanmar (Yangon, bagan, inle)

THEN...

THIS IS WHAT I need your help with:

we need to decide to either
A) Take overnight train from Bangkok to Non Khai then into Vietienne to catch bus to Luang Prabang to stay for 4 or 5 nights then head back to bangkok and home
OR
B) Take overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai and spend 4 or 5 nights there then back to BKK and home.

Chiang Mai or LP?

I can go either way. My partner loves scenery and "wow" moments of vistas and cool things.

I'm a writer so will need a quiet place to write a couple of hours a day.

Budget is also somewhat important. But we're not backpacking.

Help... Thanks
