    Hi all!

    My best friend and I are going to thailand for 2 wks late november. If possible we'd like to be able to check out the beaches then up north while there. We arrive and leave from Bankgkok. Any suggestions of where to go, not go, or travel tips around the country would be greatly appreciated =)

    In two weeks you end up flying and you should pick one island/beach in the south (phuket, samui) and chiang mai in the north.

    Bangkok - Chiang Mai - Ko Samui - Bangkok

    That is like the most obvious version of a first short trip to Thailand. These are also very touristy places and they come with good accommodation, infrastructure and everything else a tourist needs.

    Hi
    Here, Chiang Mai , Chiang Rai for northern.
    Krabi (if you like less crowded place) ,Phuket or Trang, Many islands from Andaman coast are best to visit.
    If you plan to visit east coast (Samui,Koh Tao,Koh Phangan)in Nov - Dec there is not a good time.

    Thanks for the advice!!
    Rini - You said november isn't a good time to visit the east coast? Why is that?

    That's right rini, november isn't a good choice. There will be more rain during that period. I actually didn't see that you mentioned the month travelling.

    To be specific, the southern east coast is the one usually wet in November.
    In contrast, the Gulf east coast tends to be one of the areas where the rainy season finishes earlier - so big Ko Chang and its neighbours tend to be very good destinations, compared to Samui/Phangan/Tao and to a lesser extent, the Andaman.

    Closer to Bangkok but similar in November is Ko Samet.

    Yeah. South is rainy late november, you must check Ko SiChang, Koh samet or Koh Chang, there is good weather. Then you can visit north if you want. Two weeks goes very fast in thailand, especially if this is your first trip. Dont try conquer too many places in that time.
