I’ve got 9 days to vacation with my g/f. I’ll be in Malaysia before hand, and she’ll be coming from Taiwan, so we thought Thailand would be best. My ideal is some hiking, a bit of yoga, some beer, and some riding around on motorbike. My g/f’s ideal is lying on the beach, massages, and food. She’s up for the hiking, yoga, beer, and motorbike, also.
One possible itinerary is to go south from Bangkok Ko Samet/Ko Chang way, then if time permits across to Phnom Phen for a couple of days and a flight back to Bangkok. Although, I doubt time will permit the Phnom Phen visit.
Another is to go north toward Chiang Mai and noodle around the North a bit for a few days on a bike. I’m thinking, however, that there might still be a few tensions simmering, maybe even some conflict, given Chiang Mai is Red Shirt territory and the current conflict is by no means resolved.
Another possibility is to go down towards Samui, Ko Phangan etc.
A bit lost, really. We even considered Ankor Wat/Vietnam/Laos, but, given that I’ll be coming from Malaysia, and my g/f is limited in the time she can take from work, Thailand seems the best idea. Not enough time is the real problem.
Better ideas or ways to tweak any of the above would be welcomed…
