hi,

i can suggest something for the 1st day. Start your day with a trip to Grand Palace, Emerald Buddha or Wat Arun and later to Wat Po for traditional thai massage (anything that has a Wat in front means temple, sounds like "what"). After lunch, visit the Floating Market AND Elephant & Crocodile farm/show. (If it happens to be on a weekend you may want to go to ChaTukChak Market, it's kinda like a super huge flea market). After dinner, watch the Calypso Cabaret Show (Lady-Boys performance), next go over PatPong the infamous red light district, stroll the streets, look at the stalls and take peeks of the sexy A-go-go dancers from the outside. Unless someone who knows the place is with you, i strongly suggest you do not enter these A-go-go bars, sometimes they can be a rip off.

Breakfast you probably eating in your hotel, Lunch you can ask a cabby to drive you to any of the big malls, you can find this local chain eatery named "BBQ Plaza" where they have the Isan Hot Pot, a very local dish. they have hot plate and hot pot, ask for the hot pot. Dinner you should try any seafood restuarants, especially the dish Goong Pao, which means grill prawns, these river prawns are huge.
