2-week Thailand itinerary -- is it reasonable?

Jump to last reply

Hello all,

Planning a two-week honeymoon in August 2013 and hoping to see Phi Phi Don, Chiang Mai and Bangkok. My fiancee (then-wife) and I want to spend at least half our time in the south doing the beach scene, but are also really excited to see the temples and sights in CM and Bangkok and eat ALL THE FOOD. Hoping to get some opinions from those of you that have been to these places as to whether we've budgeted reasonable amounts of time given what we want from the trip:

1) Atlanta --> Bangkok (arriving 08/12/13 at 11pm, 1 night stay at an airport hotel)

2) Bangkok --> Phuket (arriving 08/13/13 at 9:30am, 1pm ferry to Phi Phi Don, 6-night stay at Phi Phi Island Village (08/13 - 08/18))

3) Phuket --> Chiang Mai (arriving 08/19/13 at 9:45pm, 3-night stay at Shangri-La Hotel (08/19 - 08/21))

4) Chiang Mai --> Bangkok (arriving 08/22/13 at 8:20pm, 3-night stay at Royal Orchid Sheraton (08/22 - 08/24))

5) Bangkok --> Atlanta (08/25/13)

Want to do/see in Phi Phi:
Snorkeling/diving/hiking/lounging about/partying
Ko Phi Phi Leh

Want to do/see in Bangkok:
Grand Palace
Wat Arun
Wat Pho
Jim Thompson house
Eat great food

Want to do/see in Chiang Mai:
Doi Suthep
Doi Inthanon
An elephant and/or tiger park
Eat more great food

One major question: I know that August is the rainy season in Thailand. Will our Phi Phi trip be a dud because of it?

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

-J
