summer trip

Hello!!

My friends and I are starting to plan next year's vacation. We plan to be 3-4 people (we all are 25 years old) and Thailand is our prefered option.

We were thinking about a 15 days trip. Do you think it's enough?

Do you have any recommendation about what we should visit/do?

We are looking for a combination of nature & sceneries (we don't mind walking), parties and a bit of relax.

Thank you for the help

15 days is a good enough time and would suggest looking at:

Bangkok - culture, temples, shopping

Kanchanaburi (nature and scenery)

Koh Samui/Koh Phangan/Koh Tao - for parties and relaxation. Koh Phangan is where the Full Moon Party is held every month, so if your visit coincided with th right date, you could consider that, otherwise Central Chaweng has plenty of bars and nightclubs. Koh Tao tends to be more relaxed and is great for snorkelling and adventure activities.

Koh Tao is really good for relax, also there's nice beach bar at night :)

Bangkok 3 nights Chiang Mai 3 nights and the rest in Koh Samui, that would be a good combination in August

Yes it would :). It'll be a bit wet in Bangkok and Chiangmai but it doesn't matter in the least in those place. Samui, Tao, and Phangan will have good weather then. Most of the rest of Thailand will be wet.
