Hi Judy, Your timing sounds good to me and you've picked some great locations. Chiang Rai is much smaller than Chiang Mai - it's really the Golden Triangle area around it that is fascinating. Although not familiar with the Anantara - I checked it's website and it looks rather similar to a place at which we stayed in the area.

You'll probably find you'll have time for one or two day trips out of Bangkok. Ayuthaya (ancient Khmer capital) and Kanchanaburi (bridge over the River Kwai) come to mind.

Cheers! Judy in Hong Kong
