Travelling in Thailand-Cambodia

Posted by Backpack30 on 29/10/2012 at 09:04

Hi,

We are travelling to a backpack tour with my friends to Thailand-Cambodia in Nov for 3 weeks, and now we are working on our itinerary.
The first version of our itinerary is the following.
Bangkok-Kanchanaburi-Ayutthaya-Bangkok-Krabi-Phi phi island-Bangkok-Siem reap.
Could you help me that which island is better, Ko phi/phi or Ko Samui?
Could you recommend me the best option for travelling inside in the country?
And is there anybody who travelling in the same route in that period?

Also, any advise appreciated :-)

thanks,
Mate

Well that doesn't sound bad for 3 weeks, but you're only going to Angkor right? I would say stick around the Krabi beaches and forget about Koh Samui & Phi Phi. I prefer to Travel by train in Thailand.

Hello
Bangkok- Kanchanaburi - Ayutthaya -Bangkok?
- You can do Bangkok Ayutthaya for day trip.
- You can do Bangkok Kanchanaburi for day trip
.

Could you help me that which island is better, Ko phi/phi or Ko Samui?
- In November Koh Phi Phi for sure , Samui its in rainy season [img]smileys/smile.gif[/img]

Could you recommend me the best option for travelling inside in the country?
- By Bus > You can take Bus at MoChit or EkaMai (Both can go there by BTS)
- By Train >
Hua Lampong station (By MRT)
(Bus,Train can go to Ayutthaya,Kanchanaburi)
- By Plane > Airasia for cheap flights
(Go to Krabi by fly)
In Bangkok BTS (skytrain), MRT (subway)
