I am in the process of planning a trip to Thailand and I'd
suggestions from those of you who are familiar with Thailand.
what I'm currently thinking and I'm very open to ideas. Bangkok,
nights at the Sheraton Royal Orchid (using Starwood points).
Chiang Mai, 3 nights at the Chiang Mai Sheraton (points again).
Chiang Rai to stay at the Anantara for 4 nights. My husband
interested in taking the elephant training class for 3 days
all for the cooking classes, spa treatments, etc. From Chiang
back to Bangkok where we meet a group for a 15 day escorted
Laos, Cambodia and Viet Nam. We'll be tired when we return
so I'm thinking some beach relaxation will be in order. I'm
about Krabi, 2 nights at the Sheraton (again Starwood points)
2-3 nights on Kol Phi Phi at the Phi Phi Island Resort.Of course
Rayavadee in Krabi would be my first choice if cost were not
issue.How is the pacing on this itinerary? Is Chiang Rei very
different from Chiang Mai? Do we have enough time in each place,
there something we should skip or consolidate? Any additions?
interested and grateful for your thoughts.
