We were sure we wanted to visit Bangkok and Chiang Mai in the north but we had a bit of trouble to decide our beach destination. We wanted to try a beach destination in Thailand to do some snorkelling and enjoy sunny days. We thought first of the Adamman coast, but then we realized we only had 15 days so it was a lot to travel around and we prefered to go somewhere near Bangkok.

We thought of Hua Hin, but some friends told us that the water is hot and it is not the perfect spot if you look for unspoilt beautiful beaches, the brochure type. So we were recommended to go to Koh Samet, easy to get to from Bangkok by bus and then ferry and also tiny island with beautiful beaches. So we go for it, let's see how it goes.

Travels are full of surprises and things you don't expect so this route might change due to...who knows, we will see, this is part of the adventure. We are very exited for our first trip to Asia and I am sure we will have loads of experiences to tell you about!!

If you have tips or you have been before please drop us a line we will be happy to hear your thoughts and recommendations.

I haven't been to Thailand yet, but that sure seems like a very full program. I ealize you don't have that much time, but like this you might be rushing it a bit. Like I said, I haven't been there yet. Just what I think based on your program.

Maybe...We will see, this is the original plan but who knows what would be the actual plan, things happen and you need to adapt. Anyway, we are willing to be there and discover it!
