Healthcare Hotel early toward Damnernsaduak, where is the Floating Market. The market is about 40 minutos/1hora Bangkok. tourist area is well but I thought it was very worthwhile. He is famous for selling spices, tÃpicas foods, fruits and flowers. It gets crowded in the morning but confusion between the boats is fun.
There found everything, even snakes. I could not not take multiple pictures, not!
On the way back to Bangkok we stopped to meet a tÃpica Thai house, they are made of wood, usually the space of the floor is all open and the house gets even upstairs, has almost no furniture, they like to sit on the floor to see tv, talk, eat ... and at the entrance of virtually all of them have a "spiritual house", a house for the gods, where they leave offerings.
Here's a Spiritual House
Next stop, now back to Bangkok - Jim Thompson House. House converted into a museum to Jim Thompson's House was the home of American architect (say he also was a CIA agent) until its disappearance during a hunt in Malaysia. He founded the Thai Silk Company and was an avid collector of antiques. Many shops (with cushions, scarves ...) with your name across the city.
And look ... not like I could go to any temple of shorts and tank top!!
could not stand it, I had to take a picture with Ronald.

Yes, definitely get a guidebook. BUT, beyond that.....
Thailand is a great destination and very inexpensive. You will have a blast. My sister and I spent a week there in 2005. One week isn't enough to see even a fraction of the country, but it's a good start. We started in Bangkok (as most people do), for two days. We spent it touring the temples, the markets, and taking a long tail boat d...d regulary.
Next trip we plan to go up North to visit the hilltribes.
Don't know what else to share as I don't know what your interests are, or what type of vacation you are looking for. The internet though has a WEALTH of information. If there is anyting specific you want to know, just ask. I'll try to answer it (of course, I don't have all the answers....we were only there a week).

Thanks. I'm only a happy snapper...
We went to Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Nepal, etc. How long have you got? I assume 2 weeks.
Use BKK as the hub. Not only do Cathay and Sing air have return economy tickets at the moment for less than $800, but Bangkok is a hub for most of those countries. Bangkok airways is great, just like the old Reno Air.
Fly to BKK. You will get ... you can only get a taste, then Saigon is a great city to taste). You won't get to see Ho Chi Min in his tomb glowing pink but, hey he's preserved for prosperity, right?
BKK - SIAM REAP - SAIGON - BKK (2nights in BKK) then separate ticket
BKK- Laos - BKK
With Laos, give little time to Vieteniene unless you have the time.
There's some sample itineraries on this website :

Sometimes conditions on the ground change, and things start happening that you just don't want to be a part of, such as the 2010 Bangkok riots or Egypt's 2011 "Arab Spring." Government agencies and other sources post up travel warnings, but these can ..
