Trip Report Trip report-Thailand and Singapore, Part I

Jump to last reply

First of all, I want to thank all my Fodorite buddies, without whom I could not have planned this trip and have it go so smoothly! Your information, encouragement and patience were superb. We met Bob and Karen in Bangkok and that was a pleasure.

Let me post our itinerary here and flesh out the details when we are more awake, as we just returned yesterday.

On Nov. 6th, we flew United to Bangkok and Thai Air to Chiang Mai. Even though we had a long layover in Bangkok, we decided to stay in the airport and it worked out well. We ate, had massages, napped some, etc. and the time flew by.

Chiang Mai-5 nights at Baan Orapin, a lovely location, excellent rooms, food and service.

Nov. 13th, we flew from Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son and stayed at Fern Resort for 2 nights. What a beautiful resort. Could have spent more time there.

Met our guide, Mr. Charlie, driver and 11 seater van for the 4 of us. Could not have been better. Spent the next 6 days with him, then one day with another guide (would not recommend him) and 1 day with a great driver recommended by Mr. Charlie.

Nov. 15th, stayed at Soppong River Inn for one night.

Nov. 16th, stayed at Baan Rai Lanna Resort in Mae Taeng for one night-gorgeous.

Nov. 17th, stayed at Little Home in Mae Salong for one night. Too noisy, but great location.

Nov. 18th-Baan Soontree in Chiang Rai for 3 nights - great.

Nov. 21st-flew from Chiang Rai to Bangkok and stayed at Evergreen Place-mostly good. Had Ratt as our driver for 2 of the days.

Nov. 24th-flew to Singapore and stayed at the Marriott for 3 nights. Lovely, good location, very expensive (but had points for two nights).

More to follow soon!
