Need Help with my Thailand/Cambodia 28 day itinerary

Travel Forums Asia Need Help with my Thailand/Cambodia 28 day itinerary

1. Posted by Nquiksilver (Budding Member 4 posts) 2y

So this is the itinerary I came up with so far and am beginning to worry that I may have planned to much in this amount of time. Some insight and feedback would be greatly appreciate. Also am I spending to much time/not enough time in certain places and if I did plan to get to much done in 30 days what do you suggest I drop.
Im a 27 year old male and I will be travelling alone.

Flying into Bangkok 10am
Bangkok Day 1,2,3, 4(flying out early to Chiang Mai)

Chaing Mai 4, 5, 6, 7, 8(flying out on the 8th to Siem Reap)
-Will visit Pai for one of these days

Siem Reap 8,9,10 (On the 10th taking a bus down the Phom Penh)
-Only really looking to go to Angkor for 1 full day (Is this a mistake?)

Phnom Penh 10, 11, 12 13(On the 13th taking a bus down to Sihanoukville)

Sihanoukville 13, 14, 15,16 (On the 16 taking an early bus and catching a plane from Phnom Penh to Phuket)

Phuket 16(pretty much get there late) 17, 18, 19, 20, 21
-In this time take a ferry to phi phi spend some time there and then to rayley/krabi and spend a couple days there and fly from Krabi to Ko-Pha-Ngan(Found a flight for $100 and im ok with paying for that to save time)

Ko-Pha-Ngan 21, 22,23,24, 25, 26, 27
-Spend some time in Ko Toa

Bangkok 28 (Fly out at 5pm so ill try catching a flight from Surat Thani to get into Bangkok at around 12 to stay on the safe side)

-I know it seems like im spending a lot of the time in Ko-PhaNgan but thats because day 22 is the Full moon party which leaves lots of extra days after that.
-Is the Full Moon party and Ko PhaNgan even worth it or should I just spend some more time in the Phuket/Krabi area and spread an extra three days in Siem Reap or somewhere else?

Thanks for your help!!!

I guess you can shorten your days in Bangkok to 3 days and Chiang Mai to 3 days as well (nothing much to do in Chiang Mai though). Instead of spending a lot of time in Cambodia, you can consider visiting Vietnam by crossing the border.

Personally I don't recommend you to stay more than 2 days in Krabi because it's a very boring place. Other countries you should consider are Laos, Nepal and Malaysia.

Hope this help

I was originally planning on going to either Vietnam and Loas on top of Thailand and Cambodia but after researching on things to do and such I figured that I was trying to plan to many places to see in the amount of time I have. I feel as if it would feel I was on amazing race spending just a short time in each place.

Even thought its that part of Thailands peak rain season and it falls on a bad date for my schedule resulting in me spending more time in the ko pha ngan then i want to do you think its worth it? Or should I just drop Ko-Pha-Ngan all together and go to Vietnam and/or add more days to the Krabi side.

Krabi is in west coast of southern thailand and Koh Phangan is in the Gulf Thailand. The trip to each side actually takes to 8-10 hours, which in my opinion wasting your time. There are still many things to do in Koh Phangan besides Full moon party. You can go to a lot of neighboring island to Koh Phangan for different activities worth at least a week. Peak rain season is not problem at all. =D you can inbox me if you wanna ask something more.
