Bangkok is the largest city and capital of Thailand. Currently it has become the political, social and economic not only Thailand but for Indochina and Southeast Asia, making it converge a wide variety of cultures that make it one of the most cosmopolitan city.

In Innovias recommend avoid traveling in rainy season from May to September, as its height of 2 meters above sea level at this time causes problems in the canals and rivers that run through the city, with frequent overflows. It is known as the Venice of the East.

A must see is the floating market of Damnoen Saduak, the largest in the country. In addition to the picturesque and interesting it is, you can get all your negotiating skills to get discounts of up to 40% of the initial price and without competition that offers the seller. Definitely a fun experience.

If the height of the oceans continues to grow as it is doing for decades due to climate change, Bangkok has little ability to stay afloat. In fact, according to a UN study, the city will be sunk in 2050, and although there are several projects to turn it into a floating city, better know before.

Culinary Travels Bustling Bangkok Thailand

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.

I've been to a few of the places you're considering. Ecuador is amazing. Quito is great. There's a market in the biggest park (I forget the name, but it's easy to find) in the center of the city on Sundays. I also suggest a trip to Otovalo, which is a several-hour bus ride away. There's an amazing native market on the weekends. It's bigger than anything you can imagine. I didn't get to go to the... night bus there, and a train back. The night bus isn't too bad, and if you don't mind taking up a whole day with travel (it took us 14 hours), the train offers a beautiful way to see the countryside. As a side note, don't go to Pat Pong in Bangkok. It's the red-light district, and we went thinking it would be funny, but it's just sad and a little frightning.
Anyway, I'm jealous. Have fun.

The first couple of nights, like the above poster said. After that, word of mouth and afew digs at Lonely Planet's thorn tree will fill in the rest.
I live in Khao Lak (north of phuket) so I can tell you that October is a perfect time to travel over almost the whole country.
The West Coast is just coming out of rainy season and the Gulf is just about to enter rainy season. So you c...Equator and it is hot. I would also take a tuk tuk ride (you'll probably get taken for a ride price wise the first time, but it's still fun) the canal tours are pretty cool as well.
finally if you've never seen third world markets...the weekend market is the BOMB...get all your souvenirs and stuff there.
for some BSP....
