Chiang Rai or Chiang Mai? Or both? Looking for sensible advise

Jump to last reply

Will be flying from Myranmar in Novmeber. Will fly to Bangkok and then trying to decide whether to fly to Chiang Rai or Chiang Mai?

I thought I'd fly to Chiang Rai and then head to Chiang Mai and then fly to Bangkok. From there fly to the south to spend time on a sleepy island. All in 14 days.

I have 14 days in Thailand. Would like to explore the north, spend a few days in Bangkok and chill on a island in the south. With this in mind, am I spreading myself thin by going to Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai and Bangkok and a sleepy island then back to Bangkok and home? If anyone can advise a sensible itinerary please help me on this.

Or if I had to chose between Chiang Rai or Chiang Mai I'd appreciate that. I hope to do a two day trek at either of those cities, explore the history, authentic culture of Thailand. Maybe go to a elephant sanctuary also?

Thanks!
