Advice on travel plans

Jump to last reply

I’m planning a vacation to Thailand and India and would like feedback on my itinerary. A few things I have planned are Patara elephant farm on the 11th and I want a short trip to see Angkor Wat. So far this is what I’ve come up with, it might seem fast paced but that usually how I do it.
Fri April 5th-fly from IAH to BKK (arrive Sunday the 7th before noon)
Same day flight to Siem Reap
8th- All day visit Angkor Wat
9th-half day in Siem Reap (markets maybe) then late flight back to bkk
--Once back in bkk I could take a night train to Chiang Mai
10th-Chaing Mai (Tiger Kindgom and night market)
11th-Patara Elephant farm (pick up at 7:30am)
12th- Travel back to bkk (Night train)
12, 13, and 14th-bkk sites and Songkran
15th-flight to New Delhi (either 1am-4am or mid-day 1:00pm-4pm)
16th-Delhi (Sites)
17th-Agra
18th-Jaipur
19th and 20th-Delhi (Sites then shopping)
21st-Fly home at 4am
What are your thoughts on the layout? The 11th is set and I will be picked up from my hotel at 7:30am. I could push things back a day and have the 11th and 12th in Chiang Mai and not fly to Delhi until the 16th. If I do push things back I would have to fly from bkk to Chiang Mai the evening of the 10th because the night train wouldn’t arrive by 7:30am on the 11th. I thought I would finish with two days in Delhi because I’ve heard not to book travel too close and I wouldn’t want a train back to Delhi to be delayed and cause me to miss my flight home. Do you think I should drop Jaipur and add that day somewhere else? I read a post that mentioned the triangle: Shatabdi Express from Delhi at 6:10am to Agra at 8:10am then I could take a 5:40pm-10:30pm train to Jaipur (Or overnight in Agra then early morning train to Jaipur) I mainly want to just see the sites like the Taj Mahal and Palace of Winds maybe the forts too. I was looking at a day tour of Jaipur by the government but it says it’s full. I really want to spend time in Delhi shopping for rugs, fabric, and small items to decorate a house or office with and for gifts.

I know there are different train stations and I’m having trouble finding a hotel. I’d like to keep it under $50 a night. I found The Suncourt Hotel Yatri, could anyone tell me if this would be a good place to stay so that I could get to the train and also to sites and shopping? I looked at the map and it seems close to the train but I’m not exactly sure where I will want to shop and where the sites are. I have my visa for India and will apply online for the visa to Cambodia closer to the date. I know this is a bit scattered but I appreciate any feedback.
