    Oopsie...

    hi... i'm really looking forward to visiting Thailand in March with my husband. We're flying into Bangkok and would like to spend about 5 days travelling upto Chiang Mai and seeing the countryside and sighs as we go. I thought it would be really nice to travel up by boat, and back by train and wonder if anyone has any suggestions or contacts? We're on a reasonably tight budget and what we really like is something pretty traditional (i.e. not specifically for tourists) but obviously clean, comfortable etc.

    After that we're thinking of sepnding 3 or 4 days in Hua Hin/Cha am... any comments suggestions, do's/don'ts etc...it's 15 years since either of us have been to Thailand ...

    many thanks for any suggestions
    aby

    Hi Aby,
    Sorry I can't help with your question.
    But your post does make me curious as to whether there is a navigable water route all the way between BKK and CNX and like you if there are passenger boats.
    If you find something out about it please kindly post some info.
    Thanks

    There are now dams on the river so we are pretty sure you cannot do it any more. There are passenger boats as far as Ayutthaya.
