I may have a week to be there, so what city is priority? And I definitely stay in Bangkok, so what hotel/hostel near the most landmarks? or I mean, which area should I rent a hotel so I can get to lots of places in a short time? :). Thank you so much!!

    There are a few hostels in Sukumvit 4 (Nana). Its near BTS (the train system). Also, most backpacking types stay in Khao San Road.

    To see lots of sights you should stay near the BTS. about 3 years ago

    Head to the southeast. Bangkok is just a large dirty city. You'll get over it in a day or two. The islands such as Ko Phi Phi, Ko Samui, Phuket etc are like tropical paradises. about 3 years ago

    Besides Bangkok, there's Phuket, islands like Koh Samui, Phi Phi (though you can tour Phi Phi on a day trip from Koh Samui too) and Pattaya.

    In Bangkok, the area central for most tourist attractions would be Sukhumvit. Being near to most attractions, it has a lot of hotels and is well connected by train to the rest of the city.

    If you have a week, you should visit Koh Samui (2 nights) and Phuket (2 nights) after doing Bangkok in 2 days.

    This might help in planning a sensible itinerary: http://bit.ly/TybcyR about 3 years ago

    • thank you so much for the information, how about Chiang Mai? :) and I heard there's a lantern festival every year, when is it exactly? Hoang Ho about 3 years ago

    Chiang Mai is a culturally rich city no doubt, but it is at the other end of Thailand, whereas Bangkok and the rest of the touristy cities are at the other end, in south Thailand. So, it might be a lil difficult for you to squeeze in all of them in a week. Might also be a little expensive if you are to take a detour to Chiang Mai and then fly back to Bangkok.

    Chiang Mai does have some touristy attractions such as like Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, the Elephant Park, Wat Phra Singh and Wat Chedi Luang. The lantern festival happens in mid November, so if you are already set to go, you could catch it! about 3 years ago

    • thank you so much!! yes, I know, it's really far from Bangkok, Phuket... but I heard that there's a night train to Chiang Mai which helps us save time a lot. Do you know how much does that train cost? :) Hoang Ho about 3 years ago
