Thailand Itin help and advice!

Jump to last reply

Hi Fodorites. My hubby and I are traveling to Thailand in Nov. (from NYC) and are interested in some advice on our plan so far. Goal is to see Thailand's beauty and culture. Would like it to feel authentic.

In terms of beach, we like to relax and have peace - but also have some nice options for a little town or village for walking around, exploring, dinner and such after the beach. Don't like clubs, drugs or seediness but don't want total seclusion. We would be ok to take transportation somewhere as long as it's not too far. We want our hotel to have a beautiful beach that feels like authentic Thailand and where you can arrange to go snorkeling or scuba diving.

Lastly, my hubby owns a restaurant and we love to eat and try lots of different foods. Are there any culinary areas we should check out aside from the below?

Are we on the right track here? Too much or too little in any one place?

Day1 - arrive 1am in BKK. Thinking of staying at either Peninsula or Mandarin Oriental. Thoughts? Explore city.

Day 2 - explore BKK and possible Tour with Tong. Trying to decide which one. Full or half? Tiger Temple???

Day 3 - BKK during the day and then flight or overnight train to Chiangmai - any recos for either travel option? Hotel in Chiangmai not selected yet.

Day 4 - Chiangmai - possible tour

Day 5 - Chiangmai - cooking class?

Day 6 - elephant nature park - possible overnight there. Has anyone done that? How rustic is it???? Is it better to just do a day trip?

Day 7 - flight Chiangmai to Phuket, then boat to Ko phi phi

Day 7-11 Ko Phi phi - at either Outrigger Ko Phi Phi or Zeavola (too secluded?). Also heard good things about Ko Chang but it seems Ko Phi Phi is more beautiful - thoughts or recos here?

Day 12 - flight to BKK

day 13 - BKK to NYC

Nothing is solid yet so would appreciate advice, expertise, suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
