Me and a friend are looking at going to Thailand for 3 and a half weeks in July/ August and need some advice.
We don't want to go over board with spending but the budget is flexible. We would like to see as much as possible without spending most of our time in transit, like Elephant tours, temples, waterfalls, beach parties, tribal villages anything recommended.
We were thinking fly to Bangkok and spend 2 nights there, then overnight train to Chiang Mai for 5/6 nights then head down to the islands (Ko Pha Ngan, Ko Samui, Ko Tao) spending 2 nights in each island, then after to Phi Phi (3 nights) Krabi 3 nights.
We still have a few days unplanned and need help filling them, where do you recommend? Also what's Pai like?
Any advice is welcome!
