    Landing in Thailand around midnight, should I try for morning?

    I agree with jkdemonte. Lots of cabs and the taxi stand at the airport should be fine. Definitely agree on the price before entering the cab. 300-400 THB to get to Khaosan Rd., if that's where you're headed. about 6 years ago

    Where to visit in Thailand and South Korea? Also $$

    I haven't been to South Korea and it looks like amy_beloved has provided you with plenty of info. I can provide you with a bit about Thailand though... Bangkok - It's huge and congested, but quite affordable. Hostels can be had for about $10-20 and street food, like Pad Thai, for about $3. There is plenty to see. Since the international airport is here, you'll definitely have to go through it. Worth visiting? Yes. It's also a great hub to get elsewhere in S.E. Asia. Phuket - It's a very touristy resort town. If part of your adventures demand excessive drinking and/or prostitution, then you can find it here. Koh Samui - Lots of really nice resorts, but hostels can be found too. More expensive than Bangkok, but it's an island. You can fly into this island. Koh Phangan - Party island, famous for Full Moon Parties, Half-Moon Parties and Black Moon Parties. Avoid those times if you want quiet time at the beach, which are pretty nice. You can also dive Sail Rock from there, if you're into diving. Koh Tao - During the day, go diving or snorkeling. In the evening, party or eat really well for about $15 or eat cheaply for $6. Your own bungalow can be had for $15. When I go to Thailand, I go here, because I dive. In May of this year, 2013, I spent about $1300 for 28 days in Thailand, which covered Bangkok, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao. Part of the $1300 was $430 on two weeks of unlimited diving. Subtract that way and your budget is $870. In that budget is two flights to/from Koh Samui for about $300. So, food/accommodations/transport can be had for about $570, if you exclude flying. about 6 years ago
