Last fall I won two free round trip tickets from San Francisco to Singapore on Singapore Airlines at an event put on by Travel Massive. I (really!) never win these kinds of contests, but somehow I got lucky, very lucky!
After being totally overwhelmed with the sheer number a of promising destinations just a short flight from Singapore, we settled on Thailand, just Thailand, in addition to a few days in Singapore. We have 2 weeks to travel, and we want to feel like we’ve really gotten a sense of the places we visit instead of rushing from place to place.
Within Thailand, we’ve decided to visit Bangkok and Chiang Mai — skipping the beaches and instead heading to the mountains. We’ll probably include a few days in a smaller city or town near by Chiang Mai, but we have decided yet. Maybe on motorbikes?! We’re totally new to Thailand and doing our best to learn much more quickly, by the end of the month when we embark.
Any and all advice is welcomed and appreciated!
