Itinerary suggestions- 10 days in Thailand

Jump to last reply

I'm currently in Indonesia volunteering and just found out that I have about 10 days free afterwards. I decided to spend that time in Thailand but this is so last minute so I need suggestions from people who know the area. I fly into Jakarta from Borneo on Aug 1st and already have a return flight to the US on Aug 11.
I've narrowed it down to Bangkok and Southern Thailand, as I would like to enjoy the beaches and maybe scuba (just once) while I am there. I would also like to go to Pattaya while I am there. I know this is cramming a lot into such a short time but I'm not sure when I'll have this opportunity again! I was originally hoping to do the classic lame tourist elephant ride but saw this primary occurs in and around Chiang Mai....which is too far north.
I am a 29 yo male and will be traveling alone. I have a backpack but don't mind indulging a little. I'm also okay with hostels if they are decent.
In terms of places to stay in Bangkok, I thought I might spend at least a night or two on Kao San road so I could potentially meet some travel partners....but again, I'm flexible and can travel solo.

Please help with an itinerary/suggestions!

PS: I checked on expedia if there were any flights on Aug 1 directly from Jakarta to Southern Thailand so I could just work my way up and save on travel time. Unfortunately, I did not see anything.
