    My 22 night Itinerary, Suggestions are welcomed and appreciated...

    I'm going to Thailand for about 3 weeks, my friend is coming for 2. This is the itinerary we came up with, any thoughts or advice feel free to drop a line. Also, I'm going to be by myself for 8 nights after he leaves, the last 1-2 nights I'll probably end up in bangkok, so where do I go by myself to relax for a week, looking for something easy to get to, beach side, with a town close by that is safe and has something for everybody as well as good prices...thinking about Malaysia/Cambodia/pattaya?

    Is it smart to book these flights in advance, as well as hotels? I heard prices go up and places get booked up around December peak season. Wheres a good place to be during Christmas?

    Thanks in advance for any input!

    Only one full day in Bangkok? Those 8 days on your own... try and spend in one place after so much running around.. you'll be glad to stand still in either Samui or Phuket if you just want to relax by a beach...

    I second the Phuket/Samui idea........ Patong will be jumping in high season by the time you arrive.

    Where in Vietnam will you be going? Hanoi would be my choice and other MB's would second that.

    The problem with booking flights and accommodation in advance is if you change your plan. When I travel I only have my return flight booked and a few days accommodation at the beginning. I like to go with the flow and change it along the way.


    From your previous post I think you said you are not looking for girls is that correct because that would give us a hint of what places to recommend or not.

    On 12/11 don't stay in bkk the night get the late flight straight to Chiang mai. Will save taxis into Bkk and will get some extra time in CM. The time you have allowed in CM is too short IMO

    When you Mate goes, catch the Ferry to Phuket and stay there for the remainder. Better make up you mind and book soon. 2 places to consider Staying , Summer breeze Hotel Patong or Ban Natacha guest house at Kamala. Both have connections to this site so like minded people .

    comes out to like 4 nights and 3 days in bangkok altogether, I might consider spending my last full day/night there. Exactly what I would like one place, is it worth going to Malaysia or Cambodia?

    We're going to ho chi min, after doing some more research, I feel like I might've liked Hanoi more. Already book tix for vietnam, didn't book the tix to mai/krabi. We're not going specifically for girls, but of course would like to check out the scene. I would like to spend more time in chiang mai as well, really like the laid back things I'm hearing about it, will try to convince my friend to head back to bkk for his last night by himeself, see what he says.

    Spots you mentioned are great, nice prices as well. I'm assuming authentic thai food is within the radius of these hotels? I saw a lot of american dishes, but thats prob just at the hotel?

    Penang, Malaysia is a good option if you're in Krabi. Can easily catch a flight from Phuket and be over there fairly quickly.
    Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

    See you intent to stay in Bangkok for 1 day, which happens to be the K!ng's birthday on December 5th.

    Could be an attraction, but I advise reading up on that, Bangkok will be very busy!

    Thanks for the heads up, was not aware the 5th is a big holiday. Total days in Bangkok by the end of the trip will be about 4 days and 5 nights altogether.

    You had 9 pages on your other thread and you still haven't decided 555! (Thai for HaHaHa!)
    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!
