We have decided to fly from Phuket to Koh Samui on July 6 due in large part to the improved weather for this time of year. From Koh Samui we will be flying to Chiang Mai. First question, would it be better to spend 7 days in Koh Samui/Koh Tao and 6 days in Chiang Mai or 7 days in Chiang Mai and 6 days in Koh Samui/Ko Tao? How should we break up the days spent on Koh Samui/ Koh Tao between the two islands? What beach resorts/hotels should be on the top of my list without breaking the bank? Any advise/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!
