23 days in thailand, any advice for non crowded scenic spots?Never was in thailand before, so where are the scenic spots which are not crowded with foreigners in thailand? My original plan was to stay two nights in bangkok and then fly to vietnam, but in another thread they told me december will not be a good time to explore the north of vietnam, so I'm thinking about to just stay in thailand and travel around there. But where to go if I want to escape foreign groups and want to stay in the countryside, not in big cities, maybe trekking for some days? Maybe something around Chiang Rai? I'm traveling as a backpacker, so want to go in the cheap way. Any advice?

6Buy yourself a copy of the Lonely Planet South East Asia on a Shoestring ...
Read the section on Thailand , get an idea of where you want to go and what you want to do , in other words do a bit more research and come back and people will be more than happy to give you advice ..
But don't just log on to the Thorn Tree and give a list of free days and expect people to chip in and create an itinerary for you , you have to do something your self ...
Otherwise you may find it better that you find a Travel agent who will do all that for you !

8You are all very nice here, really. I bought the lonely planet thailand (not just the SEA one) and I read it. But I still don't know which places will be less crowded than others, this is why I asked here. I have no problems with seeing some foreigners, but I dont like places where I will see a lot of them all the day, so going to phuket will be something I dont like. I thought about going to chiang rai and stay some days in the countryside. Ride a bicycle, trekking... things like that... But how should I know where exactly to go there and if it is a good idea if I want to escape the crowds? Also moving down to Khao Sok National Park could be interesting for a couple of days.
Excuse me that I asked for a little help.

you're not asking for a little help. You're asking strangers to plan your trip for you. What's with listing all your blank days in your post? Do you think someone will step in and plan your trip out for you? In that case there are thousands and thousands of travel agents who will do just that.
And your request for places without tourists rings a little hollow when you so obviously are not very independent.

12If somebody would ask me for some nice sceneries in china which are not crowded with foreigners, that he like staying in the countryside, I could easily tell him some places to go if I know how many days he have to spend in which time of the year, and he can decide if they suit for him and work on his itinerary and find the right information how to combine and how to go there in the internet by himself. Which sense does it make that I will just tell him "do your homework or pay me, otherwise I will not tell you any less crowded senic spot" which kind of help is this? If I say I thought about going to chiang rai and do some trekking around there, explore the area by bike (which I wrote before) and the only answer if "you want to much help", then ok, forget it, dont need this kind of help. If you dont want to help, just dont do it, but dont ask for money or tell anybody he is just to lazy to read a book if he just asked for some nice places.
