We are a family of 4, visiting Thailand right now. We have booked all the hotels, except the last 4 days. And we are now looking for some good advice.
We started in Bangkok a few days ago, and spent 3 nights there. Then we took the night train to Surat Thani, where we went by boat to Koh Pangan. We are staying here for 5 days, before visiting Koh Tao for 6 days. After that we have 4 days which are not booked yet.
Here are the different option as we see it:
1. Take the night train back to Bangkok, as originally planned. The problem is that we have seen a lot of Bangkok already (as we visited Bangkok last year as well) and want to experience something new.
2. Take the train back direction Bangkok, but jump off the train earlier. But where? It should not be too far from Bangkok, so it is possible to travel from this place to the airport in Bangkok (and home to Norway) without getting totally exhausted (our kids are 10 years old). The kids loves to travel by train, by the way.
3. Take the ferry to Koh Samui, and spend 4 nights there, before going by plane back to Bangkok, and catch our flight back to Norway. But where in Koh Samui should we stay?
Which one of the tree options do you think we should go for? Do you have some great tips to share? Or do you have any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
