    My wife and I will find ourselves in this area around xmas/new year.
    Having been to both places before, one many years ago the other 3 years ago
    which do you think would be more enjoyable? (without starting a national pride argument) and why?
    PS I love both places, I also considered Luang Prubang.

    I would suggest hiring a bike in Chang Mai and riding Northern Thailand then crossing the #4 friendship bridge at Chaing Khong into Laos. Up the # 3 highway to Luang Namtha on to Luang Prabang and Vientiane . Some pretty nice bikes for hire in Chaing Mai.
