    Ricardo,

    Hey there, my name is Mark. I am also a first time traveller heading to Bangkok a few days after you.
    I arrive on the 14th May and al also looking for someone to travel south with as I am meeting a flight in Phuket on the 28th May.
    I am 24 and from Belfast in Ireland.

    I would like to maybe stop at a few places on the way, or get to the south pretty quickly so that I could maybe get out to one of the Islands.

    Let me know if any of this sounds good.

    regards,

    Mark

    Look forward to hearing from you

    Mark

    Well to all you first time travellers to Bangkok, welcome to Thailand. I'll be there on the night of the 9th but I think I'll be trying to fly out the next morning to head south. We want to save our time in Bangkok for the end of our trip this year.
    Do the touristy things that you hear are so good in Bangkok (MBK, Khao San Road, The Palace, etc.). They became tourist attractions for a reason. As well, make sure you do some fun things that aren't on the well worn tourists paths as well. Try taking a klong boat from the Golden Mount to downtown or take hang out in an area that has no tourist attraction and see how lives unfolds.

    I personally love the Big Mango and hope you guys have a great trip.
