Hello
well bangkok is pretty much ruled out right now, and the rest of thailand seems to want to follow suit. i'm pretty happy in samui in part because it is so well insulated from the idiots in charge. try chiang rai, should be far enough away.

I am in Bangkok right now, I don't have any problems with this city. I had been stuck here for a while when the airport was closed and changed my departure flight to Singapore and made it back to the US 2 days late. (NWA agreed to switch my flight to a departure from Singapore for free, I used the train to get to Singapore from Bangkok. Would have stayed in Bangkok but I had some legal stuff to take care of that I did not want to re-schedule.)

Even during times of protest they rarely affect tourists unless tourists go out of their ways to get "up close and personal" with the protesters.

I like Pattaya because I am a cheap tourist! Short 2 hour bus ride at around 113 baht from Ekamai bus terminal. Hotels in Pattaya cheaper than Bangkok or Phuket. Local transportation by baht bus in Pattaya is only 10 baht!

You can try Korat and from there visit Phimai if you like old wats and Khmer History. Bus from Mochit will take around 4 hours or so and not expensive. Bus to Phimai another hour. Stay at the Phimai Inn, across from the "newer bus station" on the main highway, near the petrol stations.

You can hop on a long distant bus and see the countryside pass by and stay in an out of the way town at random. Visit some of the places you did not see before.

Good luck.

Koh Samui Hotels

On arriving on the island most head straight for their Koh Samui accommodation located in any of the several Samui Beach Resorts. You really are spoilt for choice in locations on this island with Chaweng beach, Lamai beach, Bophut beach, Maenam beach, Choengmon beach and Big Buddha beach. These are the main tourist locations but there are plenty of smaller isolated Koh Samui beaches for you to discover!

Despite the political unrest, Thailand is still one of the most popular honeymoon destinations. Of course, it's mostly beach destinations like Phuket & Koh Samui, although Chiang Mai is also a popular for its cultural heritage.

Hello friends

Thailand has been one of the world's most visited tourist destinations for the last thirty years. Every year, millions of tourists come to Thailand to see Thailand's famous temples, beaches, and mountains. They eat Thai food, ride elephants, climb mountains, visit hill tribe villages and even meet Thai girls. If you're a tourist planning on coming to Thailand though, which are the top five best places to visit in Thailand and why?
#5 -Koh Samui - One of Thailand's most famous islands, Koh Samui ('Koh' means island in Thai) is heaven for tourists. White sandy beaches, amazing diving, some of the world's best coral reefs, and clear blue water make it a sea and sun worshipers paradise and, for those who like nightlife, the famous Full Moon Party held every month is a must do. The island is also full of tropical forests, exotic birds and wildlife and natural beauty incomparable anywhere else. Koh Samui is one of the top five best places to visit in Thailand for its unbelievable beauty and also for some of the world's best diving.
#4 - Hua Hin - Only three hours by car from Bangkok, Hua Hin is a seaside resort that's now the home of the King of Thailand. Hua Hin is quite a small town but there's definitely enough to keep you occupied. Several large main streets are loaded with shops, restaurants, cafes and internet cafes. Any kind of food you want is available in Hua Hin but it's most famous for its fresh seafood served at many of the restaurants located on piers sticking out in to the ocean. Hua Hin is also a great place to get made-to-measure tailored clothing, ride a horse on the beach, or relax poolside at any of the many five star hotels in the town. Hua Hin is very popular with Thais as well as foreign tourists so book early if you want to visit this town. It's not number 4 on the top five best places to visit in Thailand for nothing.

Thanks for all friends....

The best place to go in Thailand ?

Hello friends
The best place to shop in Bangkok is some of the markets out of town, generally most places like Minburi or even Bangkapi have some great deals you can snap up at their stalls.

Thanks

Chiang Mai - The second most visited place in Thailand is Chiang Mai, a large city in northern Thailand. Only an hour by plane from Bangkok, Chiang Mai is also the home of many western expats who wanted something a little less crazy than Bangkok. Chiang Mai is nestled in a valley between mountains and is one of Thailand's most beautiful cities. Partly surrounded by an ancient moat and old city walls, Chiang Mai offers world-class restaurants, tiny street stalls serving unbelievable food, five star hotels to no-star guest houses, two of the country's largest night markets selling traditional Thai products, Doi Suthep temple - one of Thailand's holiest places - cafes, art galleries, and shopping malls. Chiang Mai is often a little cooler than Bangkok and the air is cleaner. People are also even friendlier and it's a much slower pace of life. Chiang Mai is my favorite place in Thailand and is hopefully the place I will eventually retire to.

Thailand has more than its fair share of islands, and for the first time visitor, picking the right Thai island can be a pretty daunting undertaking. So, here's an overview of some of the best islands in Thailand, including the best-known spots like Ko Samui, Ko Phi Phi, Ko Pha Ngan, Ko Tao and Ko Samet. We've also covered a smattering of the lesser known islands that you probably won't read about in your guidebook -- in our opinion these can be some of the best islands in Thailand.
Follow the individual links through for detailed guesthouse and hotel reviews, restaurant and bar listings, attractions and activities, a bunch of photos and maps and of course information on where the best beaches are.

Well, Bangkok is a cultural experience as well as a thrilling up to date city. There are plenty of hot spots tourist attractions you shouldn't miss. Most of the favorite places are Grand Palace, Temple of the Dawn, Chatuchak Market, Chao Phraya River and Jim Thompson House.

Moreover, mostly peoples prefer to visits Bangkok in between November to March this is considered to be high season Christmas and New Year time.
