1 month thailand/singapore: advice is welcome!

Posted by BlackFlag on 4/11/2009 at 15:24


My wife and I are travelling in Thailand/Singapore from the 24th of december till the 24th of januari. It’s are second time in Thailand, so we visited already: Bangkok (several tilmes), Kanchanaburi, Ayuthaya, Sukhothai, Lopburi, Chiang Khan, Nongkhai and Koh Samet. We also have visited Cambodia and Vietnam for a month, so we don’t mind travelling in less comfortable circumstances.

We like a little bit of everything, so I tried to make an itinerary with some culture, nature/trekking, beach and major cities.

Is this itinerary do-able ? Do we forget some not-to miss places ? Are there places we better avoid during the high season ?
Any suggestion is welcome to improve are experience in Thailand.

anything in particular you're planning to see/hunt down in Singapore? really rare to see someone allocate more time for Singapore than for Chiangmai ;)

not really, we're flying with singapore airlines and it's possible to visit Singapore without any more-cost. We hoped to stay there for 2 days (saturday and sunday, we're arriving friday evening), but there was no flight to Chiangmai on monday. On the other hand we like major cities so three days isn't so much.
