adding beaches to thailand trip

Jump to last reply

Short Version: Are two nights in either Phuket or Koh Samui for 2 nights worth it or would it not really be worth the extra airport transfers?

We had 5 nights in Chiang Mai (Feb 11-16) after visit to Bangkok as part of our first trip to SE Asia. Was thinking of doing trek/hikes/excursion outside of CM while there, but now researching further re smog and other issues not too keen on this. Normally we are not the pace of traveler who would spend 5 nights in CM alone. I can add either trip to Samui or Phuket, from Bangkok, with then an easy direct flight to Chiang Mai on 13th, without disrupting our plans too much. Leaning towards Samui just because airport + transfers look less stressful.

Initially we left out beaches/southern Thailand saying we would save it for another trip (not exactly beach lovers).. but realistically won't be back for years/decades, would it be a shame to visit Thailand missing coastline/beaches? Or is a quick stop in an international beach resort not really going to add much to our 'Thai experience'
