You post in Samui forum. Do you want to spend the whole time in Samui or splits with some where else ? With 16-17 days suggest you splits your stay with maybe Bangkok, Chiangmai etc.

You need to tell us more. What you like dislike, budget nightly. The terms of luxury can vary from person to person. Some say $100 a night is luxury some would say $500.

Your questions is nearly impossible to answers. Perhaps have a look at FAQs on the right hand side of Thailand and Samui forum as well as top green bar for some details.

LOL, bit like a essay title for a dissertation!

itenerary for 16-17 days and luxury accommodation

16-17days in a fairly large country. It has a mix of cultures, cities, beaches, mountains and environments It has a good infrastructure for both road and train travel. Added to this the increasing popularity of cheap air travel between destination.

There are thousands of hotels. Prices can range from a few baht to hundreds of thousands a night.

The expectation of many is that Trip Advisor, rather than offering great guidance to help other travellers fill in the gaps, that the unpaid volunteers will design and cost up a holiday.

In reality everyone's holiday is unique to them. One persons must do or the best hotel ever stayed in will fill another will horror. We are all unique.

From practical experience travellers need to consider flights to and from the country. There are many places that book flights, but comparison sites like skyscanner.com will give a range of deals. The added benefit is that it can be shorted listed by departure airport, flight time or departure time. The real planning can only start when the start and end point of the journey is known!

The evidence is not clear if it is laziness or a real overwelming amount of information thta is available on the internet. The most sensible advice that can ever be offered woudl be that a traveller reseach and pla their trip themselves. Whilst many will be shocked by this, it is not as radical as it sounds, as changes in energy supplier, house move or new car would not be left to the ideas of strangers. Sites like Trip Advisor are a great source of information when a basic plan is in place, and can give guidance on where to look, or key information about hotels or trips. It is proven that un polite demanding question are unlikely to get any results. Well researched questions that at least gives some information and pointers will always get a better reply.

When undertaking the initial research it is recommend that not only the country, research is done to establish what is the most suitable places. This could be on the amount of money for hotels, internal travel, spending etc, whilst many aspire for 5* the 10,000thb a night budget in a remote location might not appeal. Everyone likes different things so a good idea of likes and dislikes, as well as expectations is essential, whilst others have to take into account their style and what requirements / must haves or must avoids. Many use words like budget or luxury, but they don't define what this is to them. As with many countries new travelers always under estimate the distances so it is really important on how many times a destination will be changed. This is influenced by the time of year. Some times of year are not as good for visiting.

Reccomendations.

1) consider the amount of money that can be spent on a hotel per night

2) consider the type of holiday that is required - beach, city, mountian?

3) consider buying a good travel book, or refer to TA Thai hotels -> tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotels-g293915-Thailand-Ho… and TA Things to do -> tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractions-g293915-Activi… for guidance.

4) refer the basic plan to TA for other members to help fill in the gaps.

so, agree with Pea, and hope I passed my dissertation!

Thx for your response ! I am a little overwelhmed with planning. Such far destination , I really want to cover as much as possible being there . May b Bangkok -chaing Mai - Koh Samui ( 4days, 3 and 10)? First half of vacation we would like to explore, active sightseeing and at the end exotic resort with great view, movie like beach , great food. Average budget per night around 400.00 for hotel. As I understand , the most expensive places in Koh Samui. As soon as I figure out if it's a good plan ( not too many days at each location) I can start planning details. Thx again

You also need to factor in the time of year.

This will affect if the best weather is on the East (Gulf) coast or West (Andaman) coast when you visit.
