Planning August trip to Thailand

Jump to last reply

Hello all - we are planning another trip to Thailand, not been since Feb 2009 so we are all looking forward to it. It'll be 20 years since my first trip to Thailand and we'll be revisiting old haunts with our girls, age 10 & 6.

Current plan:

Friday 8 - Sunday 10 Aug
Bangkok - undecided which hotel

Sunday 10 - Thurs 14
Chiang Mai - Baan Orapin

Thurs 14
Overnight in Samui - think we will miss last Ko Tao boat need to check this out

Friday 15 - Sunday 18
Ko Tao - Palm Leaf Resort

Sunday 18 - Friday 22
Ko Phang Nan - Thong Nai Pan Noi - Buri Rasa

Friday 22 - Monday 25
Bangkok - Anantara Riverside

Then home....

Looking for trip recommendations in Chiang Mai and suggested outings in Bangkok. We'll be catching up with Tong as well I hope in Bangkok too :)) - back in 2006 when her business was quite new, Tong helped us plan our wedding & family tour (parents, in laws etc) and we can't wait to see her again.

Chiang Mai - going to book a day at the Elephant Nature Park. Looking for another kid friendly trip - thinking of a v easy half day cycling your. Also would like to revisit Doi Suthep at sunrise and take them to the food market. Any other recommendations? We could go to umbrella factory, silk factory etc but we have been before. Little one might find interesting.

Bangkok - cannot decide where to stay in first two nights!! It is our anniversary on the Saturday and so would love to stay at the Oriental - but so £££ for either adjoining rooms or a family suite. Contemplating Shangri La, a babysitter and a meal at the MO instead. Stayed at the Peninsula a few times, husband loves - also a possibility. Has anyone stayed at the S-La recently? We used to love it in the 90s but when we stayed in 2006 it felt a bit tired, and a bit 90s! Any other recommendations?

Thanks BB
