For me $1000 would more than cover a month. That amount of money should be okay unless you have hotel rooms that are over $100 a night! Hotels in Bangkok will be a little cheaper than Manila.

Get a hotel near the Skytrain route so you can use that overhead rail service. The Skytrain can take you to MBK, Patpong, Chatuchak and other popular areas. If you need any hotel recommendations mention how much per night you want to spend on a room. December is high season so get a hotel booked ahead of time.

Good luck.

greetings,

thanks for the tip sir. we will be staying in diamond city hotel located at the very center of the city and it will cost us 1,500 TB per night. for 5 nights it will be 7,500 but we will be using our cc for that. most of the merch can be found here in the philippines so we will only go for the things like souvenirs found only in bangkok.

thankyou
