northern Thailand Itinerary - help

Jump to last reply

Fodorites, we have been reading guidebooks and this website in order to plan a trip to Northern Thailand in December but are finding it quite daunting and really need your help.
We are an older (but definitely not elderly) couple and have traveled on a number of different trips to S.E. Asian countries on our own. We have used a guide for parts of Myanmar and Seam Reap but traveled independently to Laos, Bangkok and Chiang Mai.
We will be flying from New Jersey to Chiang Mai and will travel to another country after leaving Thailand . This time we thought we would rent a car to see Northern Thailand but need help with our itinerary, where we should stop for the night or nights and how long our trip should take. We are very comfortable driving on winding roads, are not going to Trek or go into caves but do love markets, local color, scenery and museums.
How many days/nights should we plan on – we are not in a rush. What do you think of this itinerary? We will start by spending a few days in Chiang Mai to jet lag and possibly take a cooking class at the Thai Cookery School. DH would like to play a round of golf or two.
Here’s what we’re thinking as a route so as not to back track.
Chiang Mai to Mai Sariang to Mae Hong Son to Suppong to Pai to Chiang Dao to Fang to Tha Ton to Mae Salong to Chiang Rai to Chiang Saen to Sop Ruak and back through Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai.
We would very much appreciate your input.
