Trip to Bangkok, Siem Reap, and Ko Samui for 9 full days around New Years

Jump to last reply

I'm new to these forums and I apologize if I am wrong in posting this. I was reading through other posts about travel to Asia, but had a few specific questions.

My friend and I visited Bali, Singapore, Phuket and Phnom Penh last year for 9 full days around new years and had a great time. We used a guide through our hotel in Bali which helped us see so much more than we would have otherwise. We didn't use a guide for the others.

We are going to Bangkok, Siem Reap, and Ko Samui between Dec 27 - Jan 7. My friend lives in Singapore and has been to Bangkok multiple times and Siem Ream once. I would like to have some guided tours to make the best use of our time in Bangkok and Siem Reap and would like some recommendations. I'm flying from the United States, and plan on being in Bangkok from 28th late pm - 1st am, and Siem Reap 1st am to 4th am. Ko Samui will be from the 4th am to 6th pm.

Is this enough time to see the main sites or should I get rid of some of the time at Ko Samui?
Any tours or tour guides you recommend?
Any travel guides you recommend? (Are they worth it in general?)
Best place to plan an itinerary? (Fodor's?)
Must-See sites while in Bangkok?

Thanks for your advice! I just started traveling internationally last December, and hopefully plan on taking at least 1 international trip a year. Looking for your expertise in becoming more knowledgeable about travel.
