    Hi everyone, I'm new in the forum but Ive been reading on this site for quite sometime now and I find it very informative and helpful.

    Me and my friends just booked a ticket from Manila to BKK on May 29 FRI (ETA BKK 10:45PM) until June 2 MON (ETD BKK 12:30AM). It's just a very short trip because that's all we can stretch from our vacation leaves. It's our first time in Bangkok and we want to maximize our time there and see as much as we can! We want to check out a beach too and I heard about this full moon party.

    I hope you can give us a lead to all the must see places in Thailand and make an itinerary for the given period. And also an advise on budget hotels and easy but affordable transpo. around places.

    We are looking forward on this trip and I'm full of hope that you can give us some light. Thanks in advance!

    Good day marshwind
    So you're in Thailand for 3 days or so-I'd forget about the full moon party,thats a fair way from Bangkok and you'd lose at least half a day getting there and the same comming back.Even if you fly,getting to the airport,checking baggage etc takes time.For 3 days I'd just stay in Bangkok and go look at the sights there.The nearest beach worth looking at is Pattaya[and that's a matter of opinion]and a good 2-3 hour bus trip each way.Better go see the King's Palace,trip on the river,Wat Arun,night markets etc.Hope this helps

    Three days is such a very short time in Thailand. What you can do is to stay somewhere around Kaosan Road or Rambutri road. You might want to walk along Kaosan Road a bit at night. Accommodation there is cheap, you might be able to get 300 baht-room per night. The king's palace is not very far from there, a walking distance. you may want to spend half a day there and then go to Pattaya in the evening for the beach. Your days are gone by now, get on a bus or van to the airport. Next time you need two to three weeks at least in Thailand.

    Cheers!
