Four weeks in November - Where to go?

Jump to last reply

This is kind of similar to an old thread of mine but since we changed our travel dates, I thought I'd start a new thread. I am bringing my parents for their first trip to Asia in November and I am not sure what kind of itinerary we should follow. We have about four weeks (27 nights) and we will be flying in and out of Bangkok (got a great deal with Qatar Airways).

I went to the following places last year and would like to revisit some of them: Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Siem Reap, Bangkok, Krabi (Ao Nang) and Koh Phi Phi. I would also like to visit some new places like Langkawi and Chiang Mai. I am open to other suggestions. I'm just not sure what kind of itinerary I should decide on. I guess it would depend on which low-cost airlines offer direct flights between each destination. I would have loved to visit Borneo but I don't think November would be the right time. One thing's for sure, 10-14 days of the trip will be dedicated to beach destinations.

I am thinking of doing something like this:

Arrive in Bangkok early morning, spend 3-4 nights
Fly to Singapore, spend 3-4 nights (I loved the city last year, especially the food!)
Fly to Langkawi or Chiang Mai, spend 4 nights
Fly to Phuket/Krabi, spend 7-10 nights, perhaps stay a few nights on Phi Phi or Koh Lanta?
Fly back to Bangkok for a few nights before flying back home

I am not sure if there would be more room to visit new places but feel free to comment, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks! :)
Dino
