3 Days in Bangkok
The Imperial Palace cannot be missed in your cultural itinerary and should take a full day to visit it. For the rest is certainly worth to visit the city, wonder around and get a feeling of the life in Bangkok, although it will be very tiring.
3 Days in Ayutthaya
Two hours away from Bangkok, Ayutthaya is certainly worth a visit. The many archaeological sites are in the centre of the city are very interesting and to be visited properly would need three days.
2 Days in Sukhotai
It is halfway between Ayutthaya and Chiang Mai and has a wonderful archaeological park definitely worth a visit.
It is one of the most amazing places of the world!

4 Days in Chiang Rai
Further North, Chiang Rai is surroneded by wonderful mountains. Visit the temples and allow enough time to visit one of the many mountain villages of the Long Neck People.
4 Days in Phetchaburi (one day of travel)
Visit the wonderful city of Phetchaburi. Although less famous than many other destinations in Thailand it is particularly interesting for the shape and the position of its temples overlooking the city. It is definitely worth to spend a day on an excursion to Tham Khao Luang Cave
