“Trip was fast paced with some varied experiences. More accurate dress information prior to attending temples would have been useful but pre holiday research could have found that out anyway. Another day in chiang mai would have been good as elephant trip was practically a full day and the optional tours limited opportunity to explore. Great trip... Although I am templed out now! ”
