Bangkok, Angor Wat and Chiang Rai/Chiang Mai

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are living in Guangzhou, China. Our daughter is in New Delhi. We are meeting for the Christmas holidays and going to Angor Wat and Chiang Mai and Chang Rai with her. The cities in Thailand are essential as she did volunteer work there last summer in one of the orphanages which rescue children from the sex trade. She is going back to visit the children as well as show us the area. We must get her back to Thailand or end our trip in Thailand since her journey continues on after we return to China.
Our dates of travel are December 22nd to January 1.
Here are my questions:
1. Where is the best place to meet? We had talked about Bangkok as it was inexpensive for our daughter and David and I will need to return home and she will remain in Thailand. Plus while we do not need a visa for thailand we do need to show a ticket home. However, it is in the middle and does not quite make sense to me. Is this the best idea? If not, then where?
2. assuming we meet in BK, where do we go next. Is it better to go to East to Angor Wat and then to Chiang Mai? What is the best mode of travel? Or should we go to North Thailand first and then into Cambodia with a return to BK?
3.Suggestions on where to stay in each location. We do hostels and are not looking for a 5* hotel. We just need a clean place to sleep.
As always....thanks!
