    We're traveling to Thailand next December (2 adults and 2 kids aged 8 and 12). Would love to get some thoughts on our itinerary. Good kid-friendly choices and time in each location? We can take an extra 3 days. Where should we spend them?

    2 nights Bangkok
    3 nights Kanchanaburi
    Day stopover in Lopnuri (via train to Chiang Mai)
    5 nights Chiang Mai
    5 nights Railay
    1 night Bangkok

    You may want to add those 3 xtra days in BK - Ayutthaya can be done as a day trip and you may want to spent a half day at one of the floating markets near BK... or you may want to go to Pai for a few days as it is not so far from Chiang Mai.

    Make sure to get a river boat room in Kanchanaburi :)

    I'd spend 2 nights in Kanchanaburi town to take advantage of at least one of the hinterland trips from there and another 2 nights upcountry at the lower midrange Boutique Raft Resort for super-relax and something very different. You can do similar hinterland trips from the latter but smaller numbers mean they are considerably more expensive.

    This give you another 2 nights to fill - Ko Jum is a sweet island out of Krabi . Or if you are not committed to flying out of Krabi you could head for Khao Sok National Park.
