I would be traveling solo and looking for places that would be accessible as a solo woman and/or not too romantic/coupley, though my sense is all these are good options from both safety and meeting people perspective.
Any suggestions based on the above, or any ideal itineraries you may have or other places I should consider would be appreciated!

beach + history + modern city? This is all in Thailand!
Bangkok - Modern city / mix cultural
History - Sukhothai,Ayutthaya,Chiang Mai,Lopburi,Surin etc.
Beach - All province from south of Thailand

2The Andaman coast will be really nice that time of year. If I were you, I would just go to the beach -- Krabi, Phuket, or Phi Phi -- and if I am beached-out after a week or two, fly to Chiang Mai or Siem Reap. If not, I just kick it on the beach.
No sense trying to predict now how you'll feel then. It isn't like you have to buy Angkor Wat tickets weeks in advance.
BTW, Cathy Pacific will fly you ORD-HKG-BKK-ORD in February for $1,463.80 all in.

The cheap tickets sell out earlier. Buying today, BKK-Phuket r/t this weekend on AirAsia is 5000 baht; for a month from now, 3300 baht; two months from now 2900. You are basically paying $50 for the flexibility.
You might buy the R/T ticket now and just figure, hey, if I'm enjoying myself, or want to leave early, I change it, or (and never forget this possibility) just throw away the return ticket and buy a new one. We are talking $30 or $40 here, compared the thousands the whole trip cost.
(AirAsia allows changes up to 48 hours before departure -- of course, you will pay the difference if the fare has gone up.)

5Hi kuglof21, would you please share your trip details? I am planning a similar vacation (mix of cultural tourism and beach vacation) in December for 3 weeks and I was planning on visiting Bangkok, Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Hong Kong, but it would be great to read about your experience and itinerary before I book anything. Thanks!
