3 weeks in Thailand, from South to North, but stopping first for a quick visit of Angkor Wat, in Cambogia.

This itinerary could have been better, because going to Angkor Wat between Christmas and New Year, we passed way too many times through Bangkok. We should have optimized our flights (for example going from Chiang Mai to the islands)

Our 5 best experiences

1) Visiting the Angkor temples (even though they are in Cambogia, we went there from Bangkok)
2) Seeing dawn from the sea and arriving extremely early at Maya Bay
3) Chatting with the Chiang Mai monks
4) Visiting Wat Pho and the Royal Palace
5) Enjoying the Khao San Road night life
