If you have 5b days, you can take a trip to Samui Island rather than passing in Bangkok. Samui is 7 hours journey form BKK.

should be just enough.

Ayuthaya, the former Thai capital, is 70 km north of bangkok - nice for a day or two

Ayuthaya is a nice day trip. If you don't like big, busy cities you could probably do bangkok in 4 days.

I am not sure how many days you have for Thailand.

May be you can spend one day for Grand Palace and Temple tours incld Vimanmek Mansion with Thai Classical dance.Evening enjoy dinner cruise ( I love this )

2nd day with full day to Damnoensaduak floating market. on the way back , visit Rose Garden , to see cultural show and have lunch.

3rd day , take full day to Ayuthaya go by cruise and return by bus.

4th day, you may catch flight to some other destination.. eg Chiang Mai , Phuket, Samui or Pha Ngan. You can catch a bus by Lomphaya to get to Pha Ngan at cheap price.

But, zachary, if you had to spend the whole time in bangkok "all by yourself," then how long would be enough?

We just got back, and while we loved Bangkok, it was a bit frenetic for us. We were glad to escape to the islands. Five days would be plenty; there were still a few things I wanted to do, and we had only 2-3 days (coming and going).
