Went to Thailand during the spring of 2011 for 3 weeks. Spent 2 weeks on Koh Samui and 1 week in Phuket. We would like to go back next Spring but we're not sure how to do it?? We know we don't want to do Phuket again. We missed Koh Phi Phi because of unusually high rain during our visit and our day trips had to be cancelled. I still feel as though we haven't seen Thailand because of the weather that spring.
Anyway.......my question is if you could go to 3 places for 1 week each where would you go? Interest is snorkelling, smaller resorts, maybe an elephant santuary. 2 couples in their 50's. Money is okay - sort of middle of the road to a little higher end once in a while for a treat. Would like to be able to take a boat to next place or fly if it's worth it. Any ideas would be greatly appreicated.
