    Langkawi offers not much compared to phuket, outside of self contained resorts.
    KL; is the only city in SE asia i went an didn't really care for and out of 35 years here, never went back

    Obviously you now see there is not one answer on where to go an spend your time.

    Good luck

    Hi, thanks for replying. do you think we should try and make it Chang Mai?
    We probably do have the time but we don't want to travel around too much.
    I haven't been and was trying to convince my wife last night but she isn't sure it is worth the extra travelling.
    What do you think Chang Mai can give us that differs from the rest of Thailand. I know about the hill trekking etc but guessing none of this is suitable for a toddler

    Thanks everyone again for great advice.


    We have almost nailed our itinerary now:


    A few days in Hong Kong when we arrive.
    A week in Phuket, then a couple of nights in Khao Sok
    A week in Yao Noi
    A week in Koh Lanta
    A week in Koh Lipe (takes us up to 30 days with Visa)
    The down into Malaysia for a week in Langkawi.


    We then have one week left to fill and I think is a decision between spending another week in Malaysia probably on Penang (maybe 1/2 nights in KL) or flying north and spending a week in Chang Mai. We aren't really interested in Singapore just don't fancy a huge city with a little one in tow.


    Just interested if anyone has any opinion about which of these locations they think would be more interesting / easier with a toddler. As you can see we have plenty of beach time already so looking for something different with this final week.


    Any advice much appreciated! Thanks in advance

    If you are talking February in Chiang Mai, forget it, they start burning everything then and you don't wanna subject your kid to that.

    I found Chiang Mai quite boring tbh although I didnt do anything nature wise.Everywhere closes at midnight and its full of backpackers.

    The mountain would be worth a look but you wont see it from 20 feet away in February

    Looks good. Hire a car in Phuket and go and take in Phang Nga, take a longtail to James Bond island, then drive around and spend a night in Ao Nang. Take in the 4 island day tour via longtail with nipper ..Very picturesque with the atolls.





    Just googled where that Yoo Noi is, above yoo yai in the middle of Ao Nang and Phuket. Take it all in.

    And dont forget to come back on here and do us a photo thread
