Hi Travelfisher´s;
We´re a young couple flying for the first time to Thailand and would like to know what you think about our itinerary;
We´re arriving to Bangkok at 6am on the 28/oct, and plan to stay there for two days.
29/oct- night train to Phitsanulok
30/oct-Phitsanulok-Sukhotai, sleeping in any of them
31/oct-Afternoon train to Chiang Mai , arriving at 20.30. Sleeping in Chiang Mai
1/nov-Rent a car and visit Chiang Mai surroundings (Doi Inthanon/Doi Suthep or both?) and sleep in Chiang Dao
2/nov- From Chiang Dao to Soppong
3-4/nov Trekking and kayaking in Soppong, if possible at Cave Lodge.
5/nov Back to Chiang Mai, where we´d like to take a plane to Pukhet or Krabi
6-9/nov We´d like to go to a laid-back island, and relax. Haven´t decided/ where, that´s why we don´t know where to fly the day before.
10-12/nov Krabi area and day trips to Ko Phi Phi, Railay
13-15/Bangkok for the last days, before we get our flight back on the 16.
Probably it would be too much but as we haven´t booked anything yet, are ready to any suggestions or changes you might propose.
We would be moving on a 2.500eur budget for both.
Do you think this would be doable?
Thank you very much in advance.

-just yet another copy(Cat?) from so many same-same before.
just 1 point: dont bother with trains Philoke-CMai-take a bus (goes via Sukhotahi-ev. hour much, much faster en relaible). Youre again someone misled by seat61. Just reading a good guidebook ould also have given all that info. A nighttrain BKK-PHiloke hardly exist-dumps you by 3/4.00 am or so.
Flights are only direct from Cmai to PHUket-AirAsia, for Krabi change in BKK.
Oh-and that same mantr again; except these flights there is really NOTHING you have to book anxiously or sort out before you leave. Just do that when there.
