Hello! I'm planning my honeymoon to Thailand for November 2014. My fiance and I have done a moderate amount of traveling but neither of us have been to Asia. We are hoping to spend 14 days in Thailand and one of the reasons we chose the country is because the US dollar will go a long way there. Flights are expensive (from San Diego) so we are managing a small budget for the rest of our trip.
We love the outdoors and are looking for a bit of adventure in addition to soaking in the culture and beautiful scenery. We will probably skip the crowded touristy spots like Phuket. I read some other posts where Bankok - Chang Mai - Koh Samui were recommended for a 2 week timeframe. I'm REALLY interested in hearing from someone who has around the country in the recent past and can share their itinerary (including hotels, costs if possible, methods of transportation, etc). If there is anything you did that you would recommend skipping, that would be helpful too.
