    Hi I am traveling for 2 weeks in Thailand this October for my first time. I am interested in seeing as much as possible/realistic. I would love to go north to Chiang Mai and or Chiang Rai and and also see some beautiful beaches. I do enjoy getting off the beaten track. Any suggestions on destinations considering the month and time of travel?

    Hi Katie,

    The best place to start for this type of information are our Trip planners for Thailand. They'll give you an idea of the highlights and how long you'll need to see them.

    More questions - ask away!

    A friend and I are also going for the first time for two weeks at the end of October, and we've finally managed to settle on an itinerary. We're planning to do about 3 days each in Bangkok, Chiang Mai (with an overnight to Chiang Dao) and Ko Lanta. Not sure we'll really be getting off the beaten track all that much, but it should be a good mix of cities, mountains and beaches. Have fun planning!

    Hi I pland to go to Thailand this October as well, my girlfriend has said that she wants to go to Kao Tao to complete her scuba licnece, but I was wondering about the other islands. Where do I begin to select the islands to go to? Any experiences of secluded islands and any trips/trails through Thailand would be much appreciated.

    I'd recommend that while there you keep a close eye on the weather in different areas, and keep your options open. I used to live a little south of Hua Hin, outside of Lopburi, and in Prachinburi, and in October we used to have torrential tropical storms and a lot of flooding that would close roads and, sometimes, the trains.

    When it wasn't raining (and it wasn't raining all the time), the weather was glorious.

    Hi Tilapia,

    Thank you very much for the advice. I am looking forward to going. I hope to go up north. To do some trekking, then come down south to the islands. Thanks again.
