Here's what Trippy members had to say about attractions:

"Day 3 Visit Wat Pho in the morning, Chao Phraya in the afternoon and Khao San Road Night Market in the evening"  See More

"Yes, there's plenty of options for your group in Thailand! I remember my first trip to Thailand as I had the most fulfilling, productive time ever! I was on a dental holiday at Thantakit Dental in Bangkok for my dental implants. I had to choose going to Thailand as the price was definitely way cheaper than the ones quoted in TX. I explored the temples (Grand Palace, Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Arun), went shopping at MBK, Paragon and Chatuchak. Erawan Shrine is also fascinating. And Khao San's pretty much exicting. I was able to spend a day in Pattaya and also in CM (another time). Depends really on how long you intend to stay there. Happy travels!"  See More

"If you spend a little time in a bar or cafe on Khao San Road in Bangkok you'll meet a lot of great wanderers, and anywhere in downtown Chiang Mai too."  See More

"Try out the Chatuchak Weekend Market which is teeming with low cost dining options and great people watching."  See More

"I would try to see as many Buddhas as you can: Golden Buddha, The Temple of The Emerald Buddha, Wat Pho, Wat Chana Songkhram, Temple of Dawn, Wat Benchamabopit Dusitwanaram Ratchaworawihan then get a massage on Khao San Road."  See More

"Nightingale-Olympic - you know how sometimes you just have to trust what someone's telling you?"  See More
