Me and my friend are off to Bangkok in April, both 23, just wondering if anyone has done this route for 3 weeks before?

Is Bangkok>Pattaya>Koh Samui>Koh Phangan>KL>Singapore a plausable route? Want a mix of good beaches, bars and food.

I went a similar route which was bangkok- ko tao and then I went to phuket and then from there malaysia. I was there one month and a lot of it seemed like travel time. I took a bus from bangkok to cumphon which took about 13 hours. then the ferry to ko tao took a couple of hours. For three weeks you may want to reconsider singapore unless you are flying everywhere.

I'll be doing an overnight train from KL to Singapore. Probably the same for Bangkok to Surat Thani then ferry to Koh Samui.

The getting to KL will be the difficult part I think.

Thanks for your reply.

Why not Bangkok - Hua Hin - Krabi - Koh Tao - Satun - Langkawi - Penang - Kuala Lumpur - Malacca - Singapore ????

Thanks for your replys.

Hench, what route did you go from KL to Thailand? I'll probably drop you a message at some point, thanks!

Opospa, I fancied checking out Pattaya for the nightlife for a few nights, and like the look of Samui, as the weather is supposed to be better in April rather than the Phuket side. I was interested in Langkawi but I read a few reviews on trip advisor that it was for familys and people over 40.
