Just wanting to pick a few peoples brains about hidden gems and high recommendations.We are a family of 4,myself(34),my wife(32) and our 2 children(9 and 7).
We fly into Bangkok on the 4th Dec,then the rest as follows…..so far…….
Dec = overnights train to Surat Thani,then transfer to Ko Lanta
7 days = Beach holiday in Ko Lanta,then transfer to Ao Nam Mao
4 days = Beach resort,Ao Nam Mao,…then transfer to Khao Sok National Park
3 days = Jungle House(staying in the Tree house),Khao Sok National Park,
2 days = Phuket(Lemon House)
7 days = The Baray Villa in Phuket…..
29th fly to Bangkok from Phuket
5 days = Bangkok for new year
2 days = Kanchanaburi area
2 days = Ayuthaya
4 days = Sukhothai
2 days = Lampang
Then plan on staying in Chiang Mai/Rai area for 7-10 days….Then Chiang Rai area for 7-10 days..
Has anyone any recommendations in area of these areas,we have children so need to cater for them,but they are very good walkers and love sight seeing/history….im thinking of a stay at Chai Lai Orchid park for the Elephant experience???…
From here we need a route into Cambodia??..potential 2-3 weeks in Cambodia..
Then into Vietnam for 4-6 weeks taking us to beginning of April 15,I'm giving us April to then decide if we want to re-visit any particular area we loved…..May I'm hoping to explore into Malaysia for Kuala Lumpur/Langkawi and Singapore……we then leave end of May from Bangkok to Rio,for 3 mnths in South America…..then into the US for an 8 week road trip….
Thanks and any advice is great…….
