If you are headed to Thailand, more specifically to Chiang Mai, keep going a little further. Hop on a bus from Chiang Mai and head to Chiang Dao National Park, where you can see this beautiful limestone mountain: Doi Chiang Dao. While Chiang Mai is just wonderful, Chiang Dao seems like a world away. The town is tiny and the surroundings are breathtaking. I stayed in a small hut at the base of the mountain and let nature do the talking.
