Hello Fellow Trip Advisors!
We are planning to take a trip to Thailand for a couple of weeks leaving Canada on the 27th of December and departing Bangkok back to Canada on January 11th. We would like to get a good feel for Thailand but would also love the chance to see Siam Riep, Cambodia as well. We were hoping that all of you could let us know if this itinerary is realistic or not, and hear some suggestions from all of you on any other places we should maybe consider. We love nature, beaches, hiking, tasty food, etc.
This is what we were roughly thinking:
1-2 days in Bangkok
2-3 days in Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai area (elephant sanctuary, mountains, market?)
2-3 days in Siam Riep, Cambodia (Angkor Wat, night market, ?)
7 days in Phuket area (not Phuket City itself, but the islands and beaches around the area)
Does this seem realistic? Is Northern Thailand more worthwhile to visit and spend more time in than split our time between there and Cambodia? We would love to hear your opinions! Thanks in advance!
