Are you going to Chiang Mai for any specific reason? As personally, as you only have 9 days, I wouldn't bother going all the way up there unless you intend to do a trek. Otherwise I would just do Bangkok and beaches, as you don't want to feel like you are rushing around too much when it's your honeymoon.

Krabi and Phi Phi are nicer than Phuket, but Phuket does have some nice parts too. Just avoid Patong, which is the main touristy bit.

Ko Samui and Ko Phanghan are other options - it's been a while since I was in Ko Samui and it has probably developed a lot more since, but we stayed in an area called Ban Thaling Ngam in a place run by a Swiss guy, and it was beautiful.

would agree that maybe spending more time in the south would be better than trying to fit in Chiang Mai as well. There is plenty to explore in and around Phuket.

If I only had two choices between Phuket and Chiang Mai - I would choose Chiang Mai!

Phuket does have nice beaches but many other other countries in the world also have nice beaches .

Chiang Mai and that part of northern Thailand is unique. You could visit Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle while you are there. Visit with the hill tribes, see the "Long Neck Women" and lots of other interesting things. Thailand is warm all over, you can even get a tan walking around Bangkok and Chiang Mai!

Hi Annie

It really depends on what you guys want to do. I agree with the previous posts, 9 days is not enough to do south and north, so I would just concentrate on one part. If I was in your shoes and going on honeymoon I would go to the south and spend it on of the smaller islands, maybe ko lanta or ko tao. Do some research on islands in the south and spend a week there and a few days in the big smoke!

Pick one OR the other for sure, and get out of Bangkok ASAP... all the travelling around won't let you enjoy the places themselves.

Personally I'd do N. Thailand....

Go further than Chiang Mai....Go to Pai, rent some scooters, then take a few days worth of stuff and scoot to Sappong and stay in the cave lodge for a couple days...they have uber romantic and cheap bungalows!!! Plus the nightly bat/bird show is not to be missed...over half a million of each species fills the skies at dusk!!!

The owner of Cave Lodge provides plenty of information on trekking that can be done without a guide.

You can kyack and raft too, and do a tour of Tham Lod Cave.

Pai is an amazing culturally awsome town. The live music there will blow your socks off.

Chiang Mai is cute but pretty touristy. Spend a night or two and then keep heading to the AWSOMENESS that IS PAI.

Try to catch Chiang Mai on the weekend, the Sunday night market will blow your mind.

DON'T SHOP IN BANKOK...things are waaaaay cheaper in Chiang Mai Night market.

Have funn!!!!!!

Thailand has evolved into THE hip and chic destination of Asia with an explosion of boutique hotels, themed restaurants and bars offering lavish surroundings with a fusion of Western and Eastern influence that makes it a perfect destination for your dream honeymoon. The suggested breakup seems Ok but all depends upon your personal liking. A visit to [snip] will give a detailed idea about the best places to stay. However, if you want to enjoy luxury treatment during this period,
You may also visit [snip].
