I will be in Thailand from Dec 15th to Dec 28th. This is my first trip to Thailand. I plan to spend some time in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and perhaps one of the beaches, if time allows. I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what route I should take after Bangkok. Is it helpful to bring a Thai phrase book? I am excited and can hardly waitt to get there. I hear it is very busy during this time of year. I appreciate any advice.

Welcome to Travelfish!
If you haven;t already, take a look at out Thailand Trip Planners, which have a range of suggested itineraries -- that should help you get started.
A phrasebook is always a handy thing to have, but if you're visiting the most popular destinations in the country, then you shouldn't have too much difficulty finding an English speaker.
It will be pretty busy that time of year, but it's easy to see why -- the weather is awesome!
