i am super excited to visit Thailand. We are traveling early November and have heard that the Andaman coast is our best bet when it comes to weather. We are considering a few options. Flying from LAX to Bangkok spending a day or two there then heading to the islands. Koh Lipe is definitely on our list. So should we fly from Bangkok to Kerbi, head to Koh Lipe then head back closer to Kerbi islands? We also want to visit an elephant sanctuary. Is this too much? We are there for a total of two weeks. I guess my biggest worry is setting up a really long commute back to Bangkok for our returning flight home. Does that make sense? Or should we just fly straight to the islands, since thats really where were spending most of our time? Seems a bit of a silly move to go to Thailand and not experience Bangkok? IDK! Help!
Any prior experiences and knowledge on how to get around in Thailand would be awesome.
THanks in advace!
