The Grand Palace is Bangkok's most famous landmark and a must-see for all tourists. The palace was built in 1782 once served as the residence of the Thai king.

Travel Tip: If you want to go into the temple of the Emerald Buddha, you should be dressed appropriately. This means long pants and skirts, long-sleeved tops and closed shoes.
Chao Praya River
A boat trip on the Chao Praya is a great way to see the city. If you entlangtreibst the river, you'll see why Bangkok is called the "Venice of the East". The view from the boat is unique - you're about to see several of the best sights of Bangkok including the Grand Palace, the Royal Thai Navy Dockyward and the temple of Wat Arun.
The tours start at all major piers and are relatively cheap - price and route the boat tour can vary greatly though! So before you look around a bit. For a mere 10 baht (25 cents) you get even a simple boat ride.
If you like, you can also take a boat all the way to Hoh Kret, take a small island in the Chao Phraya River. The island itself is nice but not exceptional. The day trip but you're a whole day on the boat and get a great impression of the size of Bangkok.

From there a hop on hop uff bus tour is the cheapest way to get around. We went with Happy Tours and did HCMC-Dalat-Nha Trang-Hoi An-Hue-Hanoi all for US$16! I thought we were going to die on the drive to Dalat, turing corners at night with no headlights but don't let that deter you.
Dalat was our fave place in Vietnam. We visited a monk who paints 100 paintings a day and wants to travel t... Burma, back to Thailand that way.
You could do a full circle Bangkok-Bangkok via in this order Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Tibet, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Burma.
I am jealous of your opportunity.
If you got a multiple entry visa for China you could also Check out South and North Korea, Mongolia, the Stans, and Russia.
