02-08-11 Chang Rai
03-08-11 Chang Rai
04-08-11 Chang Mai
05-08-11 Pai
06-08-11 Mae Hong Son
07-08-11 Flight Mae Hong Son - Phuket - khao sok
08-08-11 khao sok
09-08-11 khao sok

Sometimes not being so detailed you also end up with a pleasant holiday. I would spend a night or two at the end of your trip back in Bangkok so you can purchase last minute souvenirs and maybe take in a tour. This way you won't be flying in at the last minute or your connecting flight may break down or be late and you lose your ride home. Even in Bangkok you will get some sunshine once you are away from tall buildings.

In Bangkok if you have a hotel near the Skytrain route you can use that overhead rail service to get around the city. But if you are young, maybe choose Khao San Road where other young tourists flock to. No Skytrain there. The Skytrain connects to the new Airport Rail Link at Phaya Thai. Also connects to the subway. The subway takes you to Hualamphong Train station. The Airport Rail Link costs 45 baht to take you to the Pratunam area. No rail service Bangkok after midnight. If you need a hotel recommendation also mention a price range.

Good luck.
