Chiang Mai or Angkor Wat? Krabi-lodging?

Jump to last reply

I am joining my 24 year old daughter in Bangkok for 2 weeks the very end of March, first of April. She is teaching in ChonBuri for a year, and has agreed to whatever I come up with to be our itinerary. I have regrouped (n my head) about a hundred times. This will be my first trip to Asia. Plan thus far:
A few days in Bangkok
Fly to an island (probably Krabi)(don't want to use too much of my time "getting" places)
Back to Bangkok--night train to Chiang Mai
Fly home from Chiang Mai

OR

Replace Chiang Mai with Angkor Wat

I've never been to any of it. Angkor Wat sounds amazing.
I love to experience a culture, its people. And if there's beach---I need to be there at least some of the time. I am adventuresome to a point (no motorbikes in my plan), but I like a decent place to sleep. Will eat anything, go anywhere, but also very happy to land and just "be' in the midst of what is going to be so very different for me.
Now what about burning season? How do I know if I am going to be in the midst of that in Chiang Mai or not? (will be probably April 4-10 or so)

Also--
any thoughts on Krabi? Railei Beach? Railei Beach Club? A few of those homes are in my price range, most are not. Somewhere else?

And here's the embarrass myself moment....I'm not really as bad as this sounds, but I'm going to say it anyway. I am not really charmed by monkeys, mosquitos or sulpher/sewage smells. Ok. I said it . it doesn't have to be high end luxury, but I'd rather not have any of those things in my housing. (Well I know I can't expect no mosquitos, but I'd like to have a sea breeze.)

I mean this as only critical of my own self. Would that I were as adaptable as I once was...So--recommendations?
For housing, I fall in the midprice range most certainly.
