Chiang Mai – Thailand

Thailand as I think one of the most popular tourist destinations for at least European tourist was my next destination. I have never been there before. First, I thought about visiting the islands but the time would have been to short for that. I would have needed to skip Cambodia or another of the countries…

Mandalay – Myanmar

Boat ride from Bagan to Mandalay I decided to do a day cruise from Bagan to Mandalay. A bit of luxury is nice sometimes and it wasn’t that expensive. The Irrawaddy River took us north to Mandalay.
