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

"It's really gorgeous and peaceful there, unlike other parts of Phi Phi Islands"  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

"Maybe you could skip Ao Nang and spend two nights in Koh Phi Phi and the other two in Railey Beach."  See More

"While the Wat Arun Temple of the Dawn is majestic and really beautiful."  See More

"I would also try to get to the Jim Thompson House which is beautiful--it's the home of the man who revived the silk business in Thailand which has been turned into a museum."  See More

"There are other floating markets nearby (set up for tourists) Damnoen Saduak Floating Market."  See More

"You could pick a mix of Buddhist temples, (Reclining Buddha, Wat Phra Kaew, and Temple of Dawn are popular choices), take a ferry ride on the Chao Phraya River, something modern like the Museum of Contemporary Art Bangkok, and maybe something weird like the Snake Farm."  See More

"Doi Suthep: If you are planning on visiting Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep we suggest going during their daily Monk Chat as the Monks here are the ones that run the International Buddhism Center."  See More

"Best massage is at Health Land Spa, hands down!"  See More

"Mostly they go Full Moon party at Koh Phangan and hop around the islands in the southern region such as Koh Samui, Ko Tao Thailand, Ko Phi Phi Le, hang out at Khao San Road in Bangkok and go zip lining at Chiang Mai."  See More
