Bangkok, Thailand's major gateway, casts an irresistible spell of enchantment. To the Thais it is Krung Thep, "City of Angels", and
you'll find it truly a magic place, one that captivates the
imagination. Bangkok expresses Thailand's uncanny ability to blend the
old with the new. Ancient palaces and Buddhist temples contrast
with rising luxurious condominiums. In the midst of dynamic modern
growth, this bustling metropolis still preserves plenty of cultural
heritages which make the town become the national treasure house of
Thailand.Â This lends a thrilling sense of discovery to one's
sightseeing and adds an element of surprise when exploring what is the
Orient's most fabled city.

Day 3 - (/-/-)
Chiang Mai (New City) was founded in 1296 by King
Mengrai as the capital of the first independent Thai state, Lanna Thai
(Kingdom of One Million Rice Fields). It became the cultural and
religious center of the northern Tai, those who had migrated from
southern China to dwell in Thailand, and remained so throughout the
turbulent period of recurring Burmese attacks. The Burmese finally
captured Chiang Mai in 1556 and occupied it until King
Taksin retook the city in 1775, driving the Burmese forces back to near
the present border. Burmese influence on religion, architecture,
language, cuisine, and culture, however, remains strong. The city
stands on the Ping River, a major tributary of the Chao Phraya
