Me and my wife, we'll be travelling in Thailand from Sep 7 to Sep 21. We'd like to spend a few days in Bangkok, of course. Next we're planning a trip to the hill tribes near Chiang Mai (about 3 days/2 nights in the mountains), visit to the Angkor Wat in Cambodia and at the end of our vacation we want to relax on some island with a good weather conditions (despite of the monsoon season culminates in this period), white sand beaches, cheap accomodation and so on.
So, and my questions sound:
How should I arrange the itinerary to achieve my goal and see all those places in 14 days?
Which is the suitable island matching all conditions I've written about?
Thanks for your advice.

With fourteen days and wanting to cover Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Siem Reap and an island, I'd recommend flying at least some of the legs. We've recently covered the Bangkok Airways Discovery Airpass which would work out pretty good value for the trip you have planned.
Island wise, in September I'd suggest either Ko Samet as it's very close to Bangkok, or either Ko Samui or Ko Pha Ngan (esp. if you use the airpass system as you can fly to Samui). The west coast islands will be wet in Sept as will Ko Chang and surrounds.
I do not get the point of spending a holliday when only be on the run and travelling. why not only do two major thing ie. chiang main and the Islands.
This way you'll get to see more of the certain location, and I think it is better to see two location in a chill out tempo and see everything instead of travel everything and have a limited stay and see all attractions half.
You can always come back the year after and then do cambodia!!!
