Ko Samui....worth the itinerary cram?

Jump to last reply

Hi Fodorites,

For those who already helped me on my asia travel search, we have decided to land in Thailand! I followed the sage advice of another contributor and went with what was calling to me.....and apparently Thailand's heat in April was :) :) haha

Quick question as we finalize our itinerary....is trying to fit Ko Samui in there a good idea, or do you recommend cutting it and spending that extra time in Chiang Mai area and Phulay Bay area? I don't know if Ko Samui offers something that much different than the natural sights we will have in Krabi area? We are really looking forward to a food adventure, jungle hiking, spa pampering, diving, a few days beach relaxation, yoga/healing and simply exploring each area where we land.

Below are the two options we are considering (neither of which include Phuket, so let me know if that needs to be reconsidered as well):

Option 1
Fly Hong Kong to Chiang Mai (4 nights for Songkran)
Fly to Krabi. Spend one night on island TBD (1 night)
Transfer to Ritz-Carlton, Phulay Bay (4 nights)
Fly from Krabi to Ko Samui (3 nights)
Fly to Bangkok (2 nights)
Fly to Hong Kong for 1 week

Option 2
Fly Hong Kong to Chiang Mai (5 nights for Songkran)
Fly to Krabi (4 nights in island TBD. Ko Lanta?)
Transfer to Ritz-Carlton, Phulay Bay (4 nights)
Fly from Krabi to Bangkok (2 nights)
Fly to Hong Kong for 1 week

I am sure I will have more questions, but any help you give will allow me to go ahead and book my intra-country flights. thank you so much!
