Bangkok and nearby is the answer.

1 day for old town and Chao Praya River.

Visit Grand Palace and royal temples such as Emerald Buddha temple, Temple of Reclining Buddha and Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). National museum or Museum Siam is option. Take river cruise and explore Khao San road in the evening. Don't miss the local food in the old town, around Bangkok City Hall is recommended.

1 day for day-trip outside Bangkok.

Such as Ayutthaya for UNESCO World Heritage sites and famous grilled river prawn. Either or go to Kanchanaburi for River Kwai Bridge, war cemetery and waterfalls. For city beach town, try Pattaya and Koh Larn.

1 day for urban Bangkok.

For shopping in Chatuchak Weekend Market, Platinum Fashion Mall and upscale malls such as Paragon, Em Quartier, Central World. And pamper yourself by spa or massage after long hours of shopping and eating Thai and international food in chic and delicious restaurants and cafes.

With only three days you are limited pretty much just to one location with outings to surrounding areas. I would pick a place where you have good flight connection and don't have to travel more using land transportation and waste your limited time.

I had a great time in Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. There is so many things to do in the city and around that you can easily spend couple of weeks there and not to be bored. Compared to Bangkok is is smaller and not so hot. You can easily spend 1-2 days just in the city to tour many of wonderful Buddhist temples, visit Art in Paradise Chiang Mai (3D museum), take afternoon Thai cooking class, visit Sunday night market stretching long way from Tha Phae Gate or even go to Muai Thai boxing at night.

Close distance from the city you can go on a day tour to Doi Inthanon National Park where you can see two gorgeous waterfall, reach highest elevation in Thailand (2,565 masl), visit King and Queen's temples. Next day you can go to Doi Suthep where you can visit royal Bhuping Palace 蒲屏皇宫 50铢 and Wat Phra That temple. If you like more outdoorsy stuff, there are many options like elephant riding tours, canopy tour, rafting, jungle treks, hot springs...

As I said, that place will not make you bored. Tons of activities and things to do and see... and it is not so crowded with tourists and cheaper than Phuket.
