Finally checked out of Chiang Mai today, and after a cancelled flight to Phuket (flight was re-routed to Bangkok then to Phuket due to only 10 people being on the direct flight!).
Grabbed dinner on the beach and called it a night. Setting myself up for a long day tomorrow!
Staying at Surin beach where it feels extremely quiet. Think traffic in Thailand overall has dropped a lot due to the Red Shirt protests and violence in Bangkok.
