What to do with my 5 weeks in SEA

Jump to last reply

Hi! I'll be going in august to SEA just for 5 weeks tops. Its my first time there and i'm really excited. I'm just sad i dont have more time there, but i'm a student so...anyway i wouldn't have money to stay for a long time. I'm actually going because i won a challenge in my country(i'm from portugal) and now i have a cupon that i can spent in a travel agency so i decided i'd book a fight to bangkok, simply because it is the cheapest country in the area. I remember when i won i went to see how far i could go with the money i got and when i put SEA in the table it was just unreal, like a dream i didn't even dare to have before.

I dont really fancy the backpacker scene. First i thought my dream was thailand but the more i read the more i think it's not really the best for me. Don't get me wrong, everything will be a dream for me! But i won't be having a lot of cash and i just want to live their culture and have a true expecience that i can remember and take with me for the rest of my life, i don't really want to go party and for a resort or something like that.

Anyway, i know this is a weird question, but, if you were me, knowing what you know, what would you do with my 5 weeks? Taking in consideration that i'll be arriving and departing from the bangkok airport.

Whould u recommend to get to another country? Stay in thailand?
Keep in mind i'll be going in the raining season. Thanks!
