1 week to see Thailand

Posted by lannypeg on 24/6/2008 at 03:00

I have up to one week to spend in Thailand before moving onto Cambodia. I am not particularly adventurous whereas my husband is looking for elephant spotting and maybe jungle walking. We will fly into Bangkok but then I just don't know where to go. Somewhere where I could shop/ relax on a beach whilst my hubbie does something more adventurous would be perfect. We don't like really touristy resorts though. Can anybody make any suggestions??

If a beach and some jungle are required, Ko Chang could be a good option.

It's a bit of a challenge though to get elephant riding, beaches, shopping and non-touristy resorts in the same place -- but the above may be the ticket -- and it's not too far from Bangkok.

You could spend a night or two in Khao Yai National Park (for the elephants and jungle walks), and then head south to either Koh Chang, or Koh Samet for 3 or 4 days.

Bangkok, like Somtam says, is reachable from both places in about 6-7 hours, so you could go from the beach straight to the airport and arrive home with sand in your hair.
