Today was the longest bustrip of the whole vacation. Yesterday was long, but today would be even longer. We got up at 5.30 am, and left an hour and a half later.
First we visited Wat Mahattat, de second most important temple of Thailand. Very beautiful, and we got explanations about the different Buddha's, one for every day of the week. Our guide also told us there were different colors for each day. We got some time to walk around before we left for our next stop, Sukothai National Park.

We got a bike tour through the park. The bikes weren't in the best shape though, one got a flat tire, someone else lost a pedal...quite hilarious though. The tour was nice, we saw a few ruins, beautiful nature and the bike ride was quite nice because it was hot and with the bike ride we could cool down a bit ;)

After that we just drove on to Chiang Rai, with a few coffeestops on the way. We arrived at the Golden Pine Resort in the evening. And that really is something to be awestruck about. It is absolutely amazing, in the middle of ricefields. The garden was amzing, the rooms were little bungalows...it was just perfect!!
