You'll be on the move, but I suspect that you will enjoy that aspect. And by the looks of it, it is the beaches that have the biggest appeal.

I would tend to suggest cutting out Chiang Mai because you really aren't there long enough to do anything once you allow for travel time, etc. Instead, return to Bkk then fly from there to Phuket and add those days on to Koh Samui or another island. You will lose a full day getting from Ko Phi Phi to Koh Samui, and only manage it if you catch the night ferry to Koh Samui (which leaves 10pm or so from Surat Thani ). Otherwise, you'll stay the night in Surat Thani and catch a ferry the next day - but that'll take at least 1/2 day by the time you get to the day ferry Pier (Don Sak), and travel to Samui.

On the days that you travel aim for the earliest time possible to maximise your time in your arrival destination (ie flight to Phuket). Otherwise a lot of time is wasted just hanging around, waiting.
