It may seem a bit silly to plan so far ahead but I'd like to visit Thailand in 2010. (My youngest will be out of college!) There will be 5 of us - 3 adults, a 13yr old & an 8 yr old.
Reading the "Before You Go" says the best time is around Christmas which works well for us, but if there's a better time to go I'd like to know.
Please offer other opinions/advice on:
How long to stay? (Is 10 days enough?)
Best places to stay? (Is moving around suggested?)
Is it better to stay in a hotel(s) or rent?
If you have, why do you keep going back? What are your fondest memories?
