    whats the best things to do in thailand for 3 weeks?

    If you are lookin for something more laid back and quiet go to Ko Samui for a more chilled atmosphere. Chill on the lounges lining the beach @ Arc Bar and the Mangoe Club and watch the sunset whilst drinkin buckets of jungle juice. The beaches here are clean and the activities such as jetskiing are cheaper to do here then Phuket, plus the shopping here rivals Phuket. Hire a scooter for around $10AUS a day n see all the waterfalls, the Big Buddah and elephants walking around the reserves. U could do the lap of the island in around 4hrs. Ferries to Ko Phangan leave for the full moon party off the main dock but i wouldnt spend too much time on KO Phangan as theres not much to do there other then the Full moon party. Pattaya is another option, but is not to everyones taste. Its 3hrs from Bangkok and is located along a beach with a history of being the sex capital of Thailand. Worth a look but I wouldnt spend more then a couple of days here. Maybe not the best place to take the family unless u wanna explain many things to them. Bangkok itself, make sure u do the floating markets, grand palace, go shopping at MBK (the shopping heart of Bangkok). Tiger temple is a must, but try to book the tour where you eat with the monks then feed and walk the tigers before the rest of the tours turn up. Khao San Rd is the place u wanna visit for ur backpacking or keen to mix with the locals and party with every other tourist. the clubs here are cheap and heaps fun! try the food off the street- its fine! try the bugs while your there too :). Shopping here is awesome, ul find everything!! Thailand is one of the cheapest and easiest places to travel so be adventurous! about 9 years ago

    To party id recommend Phuket! Hit up Bangla Road for all the nite clubs and the action on the streets including markets, street performances, lady boys, u name it and it will be on that road. during the day you should visit the surrounding islands. Generally these trips are cheap as include a couple of destinations such as monkey island, Phi Phi Island, and plenty of scenic beaches where u snorkell in the pristine waters with all the fish. Make sure you do the james bond island tour only if it includes the tour of cliffs on the rubber canoes in which u seen inside the guts of anicent caves!! Not many people tend to do this tour due the 'danger', but its nothing and it has to be seen. While on phuket go shooting, go karting, on dune buggies (be careful they're not usually in good condition), visit the waterfalls and see a snake show. Pay for a taxi driver to take you to a few places for a set price- buy him lunch and next time it'll be even cheaper n he/she will always remember you. Ive been using the same driver for years! Go fishing, these tours always include lunch and most drinks. Book any of these tours through the tour organisers on the streets and make sure u get what your payin for in writing! Patong beach itself isnt really that nice compared to the other beachs on island due to how packed they are and the rubbish in the water. but it def has the best atmosphere. about 9 years ago
