    I am just embarking on planning our 10 year anniversary trip to Thailand so I need lots of help.
    1. I am looking for recommended itineraries for a 2 week trip. I have heard amazing things reading these chats about Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Also looking for some time at a beautiful beach with other things to do.
    2. Is January a good time to go?

    Let's start with that!
    Thanks for the help in advance. We are really looking forward to it.

    You are welcome to have a look through my blogs for some ideas .. have spent about 3 months in Thailand.. so have lots of ideas there!

    I would definitely recommend you spend a couple of days in Bangkok, at least 5 days in Chiang Mai and then maybe look at somewhere romantic for your beach stay.. Ko Lanta is very coupley and it feels like you are staying on an authentic thai island.. not so westernised as some...

    What are you looking for in beach holiday? Lots to do? Little to do? High end luxury?

    There's also the Suggested Itineraries section -- another good starting point.

    Depends what you like

    Bangkok and Chiang Mai are good for temples, shopping and bars. The former is very hectic while the later is a smaller version of it.

    Lots of tourists go to these places but I feel the quieter thai towns and islands are much more appealing.

    The north eastern part of Thailand is the least visited yet very rewarding away from the typical harassment from vendors and touristy stuff.

    Thanks for help! That sounds great, but we do not like shopping and bars!
