Thailand and Laos (and Myanmar if I can manage it)

Hello, Sawatdee kaa and Sabai dee,

My next trip will be Thailand and Laos, and this is all about the before, the trip and the after - similar to my Malaysia/Cambodia blog. I am putting together from start to finish - tickets, do's and don'ts, tours, where to stay, places to see, things to do, as well as useful extras like transport, good places to eat, what to wear, climate, tourist traps, tricks and tips and whatever else I can think of that will be useful.

If you have any tips or advice, please, feel free to leave a comment and add your bit - whatever you think may be helpful or interesting.

41. Chiang Mai Accommodation Booked

Well accommodation for Chiang Mai has been booked - I received an email from Smilehouse Guesthouse confirming my reservation yesterday. Below is the photo I posted back in July last year when I was looking into somewhere to stay.

I remember saying that the above photos were the only ones I could find. They have obviously updated their website because there are plenty of (small) photos of the place now - new photos here. I went for a room with air-con, 700 Baht (AUD$23.29). Looking back on the July post, the dollar equivalent then was $24.29. Let's hope the fluctuations stay the same. Just think - I'll save four whole dollars! Oh, and four cents...☺

Printed Addresses
Not only did I print the reservation, I also printed the address written in Lao to show the taxi driver when I arrive. This is a good idea in case the driver doesn't speak English or my pronounciation of the street address is incorrect.

All my accommodation is now booked except for the night of the 15th. Not sure whether to stay in Chiang Khong (Thailand) or Huay Xai (Laos).
