Me and my girlfriend are looking to head to Thailand for 10-11 days in early-mid October. It would be 3-4 days for a bit of exploring in and around Bangkok, and then 6-7 days somewhere else for a nice relax!
We'd be flying from Newcastle to Bangkok (via Dubai) and hope to do 3-4 days there exploring. I want to visit a couple of markets/floating markets and sample some (lots) of the street fooD. What else should we add to the to-do list?! We were thinking of maybe a day trip up North to Ayutthaya or one of the other National parks?
After that we really don't know?? We should have 6-7 days left and have been told Phuket is a good option? We are open to anywhere else, but would prefer to have access to the coast from wherever we set our base. We'd be looking to do a couple of activities in between resting up; perhaps visit a temple, animal sanctuary or island hop?
Sorry, I know that's vague(!) but any help would be massively appreciated! We're not on a shoestring but at the same time, we don't have thousands of pounds to throw about! If we could have a nice hotel to stay in for the last 6-7 days that'd be great.
Thanks for any help guys, this seems to be the place to ask these questions!
