2 weeks in Thailand / Bali

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a two week trip with my boyfriend -- it's out first trip to SEA and we definitely want a solid mix of cultural exploring activities followed by a week at the beach. The trip is soon! Feb 15-March 2

We originally had our hearts set on Bali but it's the rainy season so I'm not sure it makes sense -- would love feedback and suggestions!!

We don't want to go anywhere too commercialized or built up but are still looking for nice relaxing hotels with options to dive, surf, hike, sightsee so nothing too remote. Most of all we want beautiful beaches. We are young and active.

I am thinking Bangkok for a few days --> Chiang Mai--> Koh Samui

Or Bangkok --> Chiang Mai --> Bangkok --> Bali

I just read in some posts it's smoky this time of year in Chiang Mai, how concerned should I be about that?

In planning I'm finding it hard to narrow down. I want to see Vietnam and Cambodia but don't know how they work into the trip / compare.

Thanks for your help!!
