Traveling from Bangkok to Chiang Mai

Our next destination would be Kanchanaburi, so we left very early in the morning to go first to Damoen Sudak, the famous floating Market. On the way we stopped at a coco-nut farm
where you can see how the coco-nut sugar and oil is made. A bit commercial but still a nice and interesting stop. Also the floating market is a bit (or very much) commercial and personally I would skip it. We continued to Kanchanaburi city where we had lunch along the Kwai River with view over the world famous "Bridge over the River Kwai".

|Horse carriage ride in Lampang|
We did stay overnight here and the next day we continued our trip to Sukhothai, the first capital city of Thailand (Siam). We did stay 2 nights here so we had a full day to make a wonderful bicycle tour thru the country-side of Sukhothai to the ancient city of Sukhothai. Sorry I was too busy to make photos. After Sukhothai the last part of our trip did go to Chiang Mai, the rose of North Thailand. On the way we made a stop at the "Wat Phratat Luang Lampang" where nowadays is a big parking, souvenir shops and the famous horse carriage's from Lampang city. Later we passed the beautiful green rice-fields where local farmers were working. So we stopped and joined in for a moment. But not too much as working in the hot sun is not fun.
