My first international holiday destination was Bangkok, Thailand way back in 2007. Back then there were very few travel websites to plan & book your holiday and so we chose the safe route of going through a tour albeit a customized one and were suggested the standard Thailand-Malaysia-Singapore trip! We visited Bangkok & Pattaya in Thailand.
Must visit in Bangkok? Undoubtedly the Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho)!
If we had done even a little bit of research, would have visited Phuket instead of Pattaya. The under-sea walk was insipid and the para-sailing was so-so. I loved the miniature park – Mini Siam though. Loved the seafood in Pattaya, binged on Pitaya (dragin fruit) & Durian and had the best coconut ice-cream ever!
