The Northern Lights looked like they were following a bend in this river that I found by accident one night in northern Iceland – (1024×732)

In Chiang Mai I did a cooking class thing that I would recommend, you go to the market, learn about the ingredients, then cook your choice of thai dishes, in a half-day or full day format. The place I did it at was http://www.asiascenic.com/ and the teacher’s name was gayray. If you get her you’re going to have a very good time. Probably will anyway, but if you get her you can expect an even better experience. At the end of the lesson you get her cookbook too, which is cool. Highly recommend.

In Krabi province there is cool kayaking @ Ao Tha Lane. Takes you through [amazing terrain like this](http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpost.php?p=13530605&postcount=284)

My favourite beaches in Krabi province were Tonsai and Railay. Ao Nang beach is also nice, but like I said – mind the monkeys. Phi phi island had the best beaches I think, especially Maya beach (the beach from the movie the beach).. it’s basically paradise.. but expect everyone to be there. You won’t go there to relax, you’ll just go to see it. For relaxation the first couple beaches I mentioned are much better (and they are pretty enough to look at too)

Do you mean Ko Pha Ngan? If so, Haad Rin beach is where you went to go for the full moon party. The beach is nice but parts can be a bit messy from the full moon parties and just mayhem in general I guess. What I did was take a water taxi to one of the beaches north along the eastern coast, then found a trail and walked to another beach, which ended up being even more devoid of people.

General tip – if you ever drop your Thai money, don’t put your foot on it to stop it from flying away (or for whatever reason). Thai royalty is on all the money and you can get in big shit if you dishonour them in any way. In fact, it’s probably best to completely avoid any conversations involving the Thai royal family altogether.

In Bangkok the Grand Palace is worth seeing, but watch out for the various scams. You can run into them all over the region, not just in Bangkok or the Grand Palace, but that’s the big tourist hot spot and last I read (2 years ago) there were organized tuk tuk scams to watch out for. I encountered a couple other ones myself. I recommend reading up on whatever scams are popular right now, or at least doing some research.

The Jim Thompson house in Bangkok was very cool, if you’re in the area I recommend you drop by and go on a guided tour.

I have my whole trip (4 weeks altogether in Thailand and Cambodia) written out day by day with pictures and videos in the link from a couple paragraphs ago. Maybe you can use some of that to decide what to do while you’re down there.

Don’t mind the wall of text and enjoy your trip!
