    Chang Mai

    Lads, I know there's a good few Thailand experts out there, I've been 4-5 times myself. But always to the islands. I have 5 days in Bangkok from next sunday and considering a couple of days up north in chang Mai. Would it be pointless going up for 2 days? Can get a air asia flight for 60 notes.
