Is a 6 day trip worth it?

Is a 6 day trip worth it?

My husband is excited by the idea of going to Thailand next March. We would only have 6 days (plus additional days for our flights). I know that those who know say it isn’t worth it for such a quick trip. Initially I thought about splitting time betweenness Chiang Mai and Phuket, but now I’m thinking maybe just Phuket? My hesitation is that I feel like there would be so much that we are missing out on. I guess my question is: is a small fraction of a beautiful country worth it? His biggest wish is scuba diving which is why we have limited it to that.

I have done about 60-70 trips to the kingdom in last 25 or so years - shortest was 9 nights - longest was 130.

6 is short, but doable, Max two destinations. I would recommend one.

I did CM, MHS and BKK on my 9 day trip - was too much. Perhaps Phuket for 4-5 days and a day in BKK on way home

And if doing Scuba - remember that you cant fly and dive in same 24 hours.
