Independent travel in South-East Asia
We have stayed at a lot of hotels in South East Asia in our travels. Some good, some bad, and some beyond belief. Here are some we have stayed in, and feel we can recommend.
This Thailand Itinerary is one of our favourites. It is an interesting cross section of most of the attractions of Thailand, but without the large amount of travelling that would be involved if you were to go to the extreme north and extreme south of the country. As with any Thialand Itinerary, the length of time to make this trip is a mid range estimate, and can easliy be done much quicker. Obviously, is you are loving the islands, you could make this trip last for months if you wish! In addition, you can mix and match this, and any of our other itineraries, to include anything else that intersts you, or alternitively, leave out bits you dont want to see.
