    When are you going? This would affect which beach/island I'd recommend. Nov-May west coast is more sunny, May-Oct east coast is the better choice.
    Anyway, spend at least a couple days in Kanchanburi, the people doing it as a daytrip from Bangkok always look rushed and miserable. Do a river cruise, visit the memorials and the Erawan falls, skip the tiger temple. Get a bus from Kanchanburi to Ayutthaya then overnight sleeper train to Chiang Mai. Spend a few days in CM (temples, markets, great food). Getting to Siem Reap from there will either take 2 days (by train/bus) or cost a lot (flight) so make the tough decision. The Angkor ruins deserve at least two days and maybe do a day touring the floating villages on Tonle Sap. For your beach consider stopping off at Ko Chang for a few days on your way back to Bangkok.

    Hey Bob
    Thanks for this. Our outline kind of plan was 2 days Kanchanburi then Ayuttaya and onto CM for a couple of days. Overnight sleeper back to Bangkok- stay in Bangkok for the night and accross to SR for a few days. I checked out a few beach locations and like the sound of Khoa Lak- can we get from Bangkok to here easily? I would then like to spend a day or 2 in Bangkok at the end for some shopping. we will be travelling in Nov. Ideally I would like to travel overland rather than flying. Is Ko Chang on the way back from SR to Bangkok. I have had a look at maps etc but all the names are pickling my head so any help would be appreciated very much
