    Hi,

    We are travelling to a backpack tour with my friends to Thailand-Cambodia in Nov for 3 weeks, and now we are working on our itinerary.
    The first version of our itinerary is the following.
    Bangkok-Kanchanaburi-Ayutthaya-Bangkok-Krabi-Phi phi island-Bangkok-Siem reap.
    Could you help me that which island is better, Ko phi/phi or Ko Samui?
    Could you recommend me the best option for travelling inside in the country?
    And is there anybody who travelling in the same route in that period?

    Also, any advise appreciated :-)

    thanks,
    Mate

    Well that doesn't sound bad for 3 weeks, but you're only going to Angkor right? I would say stick around the Krabi beaches and forget about Koh Samui & Phi Phi. I prefer to Travel by train in Thailand.

    (Bus,Train can go to Ayutthaya,Kanchanaburi)
