I’m going to Thailand for the entire month of June this summer. I have a decent idea of what I want to do but could use a few suggestions. My only condition is that I have to be in Phuket by June 26. Here is my plan.
Bangkok for 3 days—>Siem Riep, Cambodia for 2 days—>Back to Bangkok—> to Chaing Mai to spend 4 or 5 days—>Then down south to Surat Thani and over to Ko Samui/Ko Phangan/Ko Toa for 6 days or so—-> Phuket area for a few days—> to Bangkok to head home.
I’m trying to take travel time into consideration as well. I figure a day to Siem Riep and a day back to Bangkok. A night train to Chaing Mai and a night train back. A day or so to get from Bangkok to Ko Samui. A little less than a day from Ko Samui to Phuket.
I’d like to keep my budget around $ 1500 and was planning on using trains for my primary transit between locations. Is this a good plan?
Any suggestions on seeing things I might be missing with this trip?

..its kinda good but i’d suggest a little more money..and you’ll need at least a day’s rest to recover from the train trip due to the rattle..i’d take air con buses and listen to my headphones or txt…or take a few sleeping pills.
Koh Samui is pretty and fun indeed.
