Although I spent a mere two weeks in Thailand, I feel I managed to sample a bit of everything the country has to offer, and might be helpful with some initial pointers on what to do and where to go.
I spent 2 months in Thailand in the summer of 2003. I began my trip in Ayuthaya seeing the Historical Park. I traveled by train to Phitsanulok. I enjoyed the riverside park where they offer outside aerobic classes for all ages. It is a great walking town with lots to see and do. Then I went to Phrae on the way to Chiang Mai where I stayed for 1 month and taught English to 2 men from the Disabled Center, a community that encourages business ownership. Check it out online. Then on to Hua Hin, a beachside resort where the King and Queen live. Then Kanchanaburi to see the Bridge on the River Kwai. Bangkok was an enjoyable city with river travel to anyplace you want to go. My budget was $100 USD a week but it could be done for much less. Eating street food and fruit is safe in Thailand.
I am a 28 years old Greek man and I travelled in Thailand on summer of 2008. I 've been in Bangonk, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Phi Phi island, Krabi, Samui, Phangan. I would be happy if i could give some imformations for the places i 've been.
I have lived in Phuket since 2000 and enjoy living here and exploring the interesting places that you can find I write about things to do in Phuket (http://timinphuket-thingstodo.blogspot.com/) and restaurants that I have visited in Phuket (http://timinphuket-restaurants.blogspot.com/) - I hope that I can help. I have started a concierge which may have answers for you - http://aconcierge4phuket.blogspot.com/.

I have been living in Thailand since 1989. I have traveled extensively throughout the Kingdom and wanted to share my wonderful experiences of Thailand with others.
I stayed in many villages and met with the village headmen many times. I learned about their culture, way of life, religion, and do's and don'ts.
I am now retired with my beautiful Thai wife and still living in North Thailand. We are very active in helping orphaned children through our church here. I occasionally write travel articles for magazines and newspapers.

I have a brother that lives in Thailand the past 15 years. At present he's in Kamala. I hadn't seen him for 7 years so last year I went to Thailand for 8 months, from April to Dec. left just before the tsunami. I spent 6 months in Kamala/Patong area on the island of Phuket. I was in Bangkok for a total of 2 weeks at various times. My last two months in Thailand I stayed in Pattaya. Studied the language while I was in Kamala and got around quite a bit. Lots of help for people traveling to Thailand on this site, but from some of the help mail I've read it leaves a lot to be desired. I would enjoy giving anyone information that's within my scope of experience, just ask...sincerely Lew

I like Cambodia and feel it's one of the very few places left that you can still get the feeling that your trailblazing. Not crowded with tourist and the westerners you do meet there have character. like the Islands of Thailand used to be on the south-eastern coast. The only Beaches in cambodia. Clean water,Nice people, good dance, and relaxed in every way.
Eric is happy to answer questions about this Country. I have visited twice for 30 days. My total of 60 days in this country allowed me to travel ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.

I always recommend www.Bangkokbob.com for new visitors. READ the 40 pages of Information there, and you will have a good reference for visiting this wonderful country.
