Thailand family trip July

Jump to last reply

We are contemplating our first trip ever to Asia this July with our 3 children ages 10, 11, and 14. I know July is not an ideal time to go but the only option we have. Are we crazy to go at that time given heat and rain?

We have 2 weeks but have been told that 2 weeks is too long for Thailand only. I don't want to rush around and would appreciate any itinerary suggestions. We are in the early planning stages but our plan is to fly into BKK (2 or 3 nights?). Possible stops include:
* Chiang Rai--Four Seasons Golden Triangle Tented Camp--this is a must do for our family-3 nights. I believe there is a day trip option for Burma.
* Chiang Mai? Not sure if necessary since we are already doing elephants and cooking classes at other stops
* Phuket--seems like a must do
*Koh Samui-thoughts? we get 2 nights at another 4 seasons resort in Thailand and this is one option (other is Chiang Mai)

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
