Thailand in August

Postby pulseevents » Tue 07 May, 2013 9:53 pm

I am off to Thailand in August for work and have the option of some extra time and I am keen to get out of town and hike some country.
Anyone out there done any multi day hikes they could recomend or got any local insight that would be helpfull.
I prefer stuff on the tougher side of the norm, longdays and steep climbs for rewarding views make the best memories for me.
Just keep putting one in front if the other.

If you like to walk, I hear there's a place called walking St in pattaya. About 2 hrs from Bangkok, it's a real eye opener

Depends where your going to be based.....
Head to the hills around Chiangmai, ChaingRai, Chiang Dao, Doi Inthanon NP etc etc...for hilltribes, rivertrips & cave exploration,
ridgeline, cloud forest walks, waterfalls etc.
Then when your done, soak those aches & pains away in a local hot spring. Bliss. 8-)

I'm sure there'll be similar clubs wherever your working in Thailand.
Mountains view are good for my soul...& getting to them is good for my waistline !

I am only going to be there for 4 days for work so was thinking of taking an extra couple of weeks so I could get out of town and see some mountains.

I dont really have a base to work from as such and with travel pretty cheap over there anwhere is good.
