Your Feedback Appreciated on Two Possible Thailand/Cambodia Itineraries

Jump to last reply

I’m starting to plan a trip to Thailand and Siem Reap for November 2016 and wanted to run a couple possible itineraries past you S.E. Asia experts. We are planning 13 nights on the ground.

Option 1:

• Bangkok – 3 nights
• Chiang Mai – 3 nights
• Siem Reap/Angkor Temple complex 3 - nights
• Koh Lanta – 3 nights
• Bankok – 1 night

Option 2:

• Bangkok – 4 nights
• Siem Reap/Angkor Temple complex 4 - nights
• Koh Lanta – 4 nights
• Bangkok – 1 night

Of course, option 2 will allow for a more thorough experience in fewer places, and with less travel; however, we really want to see Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, as well as visit the National Elephant Institute outside of Chiang Mail. If we cut out Chiang Mai, is there a temple with similar attributes that might be equally as impressive which we can visit in any of the other places we would be staying? Also, is there a place to visit elephants where they are humanely treated near Bangkok, Siem Reap or Koh Lanta? We really want to visit all the other places, so if we cut out only one destination it will be Chiang Mai for this trip, but it would be much easier knowing that we could find equally satisfying experiences in the remaining places, especially for the two particular ones mentioned.

Your feedback is much appreciated!
