The gf and I decided to bite the bullet and do it this summer. She always tells me how awesome it is there, and how cheap everything is (if she buys it and pretends shes not with me lulz). So we bought tickets, and we'll be there for about 2 weeks. She has a lot of family there, so we will stay with them. no need to pay for a hotel or anything, which greatly reduces the cost of the trip. We'll be staying in an area just outside of Bangkok, but she wants to travel around to some nice beaches and stuff. we have time to see a lot. Anyone ever been? I hear it's very beautiful there, and I'm excited to go flights will be brutal though, 25+hrs (with 2 stops) each way.
