I am planning a trip to Thailand for this coming November and need to plan accommodations.

The first 4 or 5 days will be at The Cliff and River Jungle Resort outside the Kao Sok National Park. This is where we are attending a wedding and we are not flexible on this part of the trip. Everything that follows we are flexible. When we leave there, we are considering going to Koh Lanta (Relax Bay Resort). Is this a good choice in your opinion? Where would you recommend? We will have approximately 11 days there when we will fly back to Bangkok and spend 2 days there before we fly back to Canada.

My questions are as follows:

1. Where would you recommend we stay on the Krabi/Ao Nang/Koh Lanta area?
2. What MUST we do when here in south Thailand? The current plans are: Jungle Tour, Elephant Trek, Waterfall Tour, PhiPhi Island Tour, Scuba Diving, Tiger Cave, Thai Massage……what am I missing?
3. What is a good place to stay in Bangkok? For both this and the previous, we are looking for good quality and comfort at a reasonable price (we are not cheap but still have to watch how much we spend).
4. What MUST we do in Bangkok? I am hoping to get tons of great photography opportunities here and in the south.

I thank you for whatever you can offer me.

Oh wow! I can so help with this. I'm Canadian but I live in Bangkok.
So:
1. Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi
Krabi Thai Village Resort
2. I think you got everything…maybe catch a Thai dance show? Your hotel should be able to arrange one. Ask them about what there is to do around the area.
3. Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit- A little pricey put nice, with a good location right on the Sky Train Line
4. Bangkok must dos:
The temples/wats obviously. Just buy a guide book and see what interests you
Paragon. Its like, the best mall ever. I realize you might not be interested in malls, but it also has a huge movie theater, bowling, and an aquarium. Its on the Sky Train line too so if you're stuck with what to do one morning just hop on the train and its not far, you don't have to switch trains
Chatuchak Market for shopping. Huge and hard to navigate but you will probably get some good pictures out of it as well as good bargains
I would avoid the zoo, it's a little depressing. The animals are not kept in great conditions
Dream World! It's fantastically kitschy and fun. There's a whole park type thing of cheesy statues and sculpted bushes. The rides are good too. Not Disney-World-great, but still fun.
Sorry, I'm a teenager so I like that kind of stuff.
I can tell you there are lots of good galleries in Bangkok, you should check out some Thai artists. You never know, you could find something you really like
Aaaand. Angkor Wat. For sure. Worth the trip. Ask at your hotel about arranging a van. If you have a day to spare it's great.
