I'm at Saraburi hehe~ Alright... Khao Yai is a nice place to stop on the way up... no kidding. IF ur a nature freak... you got all the nature there man... all sortsa birds, wild boars... you name it. If you have the time to go up to Chiang Rai... the mountain people there... woohoo! the houses! U should have a look at it urself. Then head on to the Thailand/Burma border there. The houses are built along the mountain side... *looks so scary... if the stilts fail... the whole house will go down the ravine that's like... REALLY DEEP*
