4 days in Bangkok

Jump to last reply

I am planning to take a stop over in Bangkok on my way to India in early December 2012. I will be travelling with my husband and we are both 28. We can spend 4 Nights and 4.5 days. We are interested in exploring Thai culture, food, local markets and may be a beach day! We love walking around.We are not too much in to history, but are planning to do may be 2 temples to get the feel of Buddhist temples and architecture.

I am looking for suggestions for a 2 day/1 night side trip to a beach town near to Bangkok. Here is what i am struggling with (in order of preference). I am open to suggestions and feedback.

1) Koh Samet - I have read good stuff about Koh Samet.

2) Pattaya
I see that Pataya is 2 hours away by road, not sure how much it practically depending on traffic scene. What i understand from the forums that it is not the best beach around. Is it worth a trip?

3) Hua Hin ?

4) Would it make sense to take a short flight to Koh Samui or Krabi instead?

5) Should we just stick to Bangkok and make most of it? We may return to Thailand sometime, but not sure when. So, i do feel like making most of the 4 days (which i know is not enough).

Any other suggestions ? Really confused, please help. We have to book our travel in next 1-2 days. Thanks in advance.
