    Have a look here first:

    for some ideas.

    When you have a rough idea, maybe ask some more specific questions and you'll get lots of ideas. Or at least tell what your interests are and how much time you have.

    You can take the single-line train from Wong Wian Yai Station in Thonburi (across the river from Bangkok) to Samut Sakhon (Mahachai), check out the seafood markets and have an excellent seafood lunch, then cross the river (by pedestrian ferry ... 2 baht) and catch the train again for Samut Songkhram. It's a really nice trip through the salt fields, and a much, much better way of getting to Samut Songkhram than by bus from Bangkok.

    If you're in the area of Hua Hin, I'd try to get to Khao Sam Roi Yot. Very interesting and beautiful place.

    Don't forget that you will only be issued a 15-day visa on arrival when you come back into Thailand from Malaysia.
