    Driving holiday from Bangkok

    I'm looking at 2 options.

    1. Bangkok-Phetchabun-Sukhothai-Lampang-Kampaeng Phet-Nakhon Sawan- BKK

    2 BKK-Phetchabun-Loei-Chiang Khan-Nong Khai-Khon Kaen-Chaiyaphum-bkk

    Which do you think is the better option?

    Google maps tells me they are about the same distance, only 10km out.

    Timeframe would be 7-9 nights. 2 nights some places some just pass thru.

    Return trips are 1476km and 1466km.

    Is it worth the effort or should we just pick somewhere closer to Bangers for a week getaway? (not doing pattaya/hh)

    been there didnt like it.


    I should add I'm already doing a trip to prachuap. The northern run is a 2nd trip, might be trying to do too much but keen to seen as much as possible as this might be the last trip for a couple of years.

    You could head up to Sanklebury on the Border just past kanchanaburi. Nice trip and scenery up that way.

    Ive just done a 3k road trip from Chiangmai out along the lao border down to Koh chang and finished in Bangkok. Took us 2 weeks just cruising along through all the back roads.

    Just keep driving mate, cant go wrong really.

    GPS works wonders.
