Ideas for Thailand trip summer 2016

Jump to last reply

We are planning a large family trip to Thailand (15 people including multiple kids and elderly grandparents) next summer. We will have approx. 2 weeks in Thailand. Some advice on planning would be great. We are all part of an extended family who live in different parts of the US and internationally. We try to avoid places that are very crowded and touristy although I guess we will do a few days in Bangkok. Ideally, we like to rent a large villa near a beach or mountains and stay in it together. We like to visit 2-3 places so we get a feel for the country.

Some history/culture is always nice along with beautiful surroundings. What about 3 days in Bangkok, 5 days in Koh Chang and one other location? Is Chiang Mai worth it or will it be too crowded and touristy?

Travel would begin in late June or early July. Would it make sense to combine a week in Thailand with a week in Malaysia (Penang)?
