What do you think about Phuket, there are a lot of wonderful destinations and islands in there for enjoying.
I just got back from visiting Thailand and it is absolutely incredible! Great choice :)
Chaing Mai is one of Thailand's largest cities, there are plenty of markets, temples, shopping and some of the best food Thailand has to offer (not to mention the least expensive).
Pai is a hippy little town. Very relaxed and a wonderful place to chill out. It's a four-hour drive from Chiang Mai but very worth the time it takes to get there. The road follows winding mountains and green as far as the eye can see!
I wrote my personal itinerary on my blog. It includes prices and how to get around! Best of luck :)
Try Chiang Mai. It is a very nice city/town in Northern Thailand that boasts its temples and culture.
I recommend you 2 options.
This option, you can't fly.
You can take flight from Bangkok and Phuket to Chiang Mai.
