Hi, all

which way we choose will totally depend on how tiered we will feel....

Update....



So, now more detailed research.
I will include here most of the bits and peaces that I could scrap from the net.

OK, lets start from the most useful sits I found. 
the first was travelfish.org  there you can find most of the basic info about traveling in Thailand,
stuff like how to plan your trip, where to go, how to get to the locations, what to do, where to eat or sleep.
overall great site to begin with, but for me it was a bit mainstream. 
So I dig more and found this site travelpod.com. Now,  this site consist of many personal blogs.
so I liked it more because I could  catch  more atmosphere of the place,
as  people  telling stores from  their one experiences and perspective. 
http://wikitravel.org  of course  I should of mention this site first as it is the Wikipedia for travellers.
the rest of the sites were secondary such as the Thai  railways  or booking a accommodation agoda.combooking.com
all the rest are sites that very specific to the locations.
from here I will go through the routs and look at all pleases in depth.

Bangkok (BKK) 
So first of all upon arrival we going to Khao San Rd (how to get here.) to find a nice guesthouse. 
next shopping (Pantip plaza MBK Center and J.J the weekend market).
see and do: i think we wont have much time so only tow places first Wat Arun and 
urban exploration around Wat Welu Ra Chin(if you click the link, its wary nice blog about BKK).
night out: going to visit the saxophonepub also this place Jam Cafe.
also you can check the map for more places...

next stop is Ayutthaya
we planing to get here buy train in the morning to have a nice walk around and stay for a night.

The next day we will continue to Phitsanulok
we will stay here for the night than go to Sukhothai spend most of the day there come back to Phitsanulok  and take the night train to Chiang Mai. 

so Chiang Mai, known for its great markets (MORE SHOPING!!!).
some attractions: Wat UMongzoo park and more.( check the map).


AND THEN AS PRODIGY SAY "JUNGLE BABY" !!!

To be continued...
