    Hey fellows,

    I am traveling to Thailand at the end of August and early September with my mother and I need some suggestions regarding the must-see places, activities and any other suggestions I can get.

    I will be going directly to Phuket for 2 nights, then Pattaya for 2 nights and then Bangkok for 4 nights.

    Even massage recommendations are welcome.

    Looking forward to getting some amazing suggestions.

    Word of advice, keep small monetary bills handy, 20s and 50s Thai baht. Especially in Bangkok, it seems like every westerner and tourist is a target to take advantage of. A relative of mine handed a taxi cab driver a thousand baht as payment for his ride that cost a little over a hundred and the driver told him he has no change, so the cabby took the money and said he'll return after he changes his one thousand baht for smaller denomination. Never returned :)
    Enjoy your trip by the way.

    Also watch out at those airports, they like to take foreigners on a "joy ride" before arriving at your destination. Happened to me and a lot others. As for recommendations, just try many of their 10000 street foods, just make sure you buy from those with people queuing unless you wanna get food poisoning

    it is too late as you go to pucket, bkk and pattaya, but I recommend to stay away from touristic places. when you take a taxi, always ask to put the meter on, if he refuse, just leave the car, it is not legal and it means he will charge you more than the normal price. Do not buy/bring ilegal drug, it can be a real pain here. If you get controled by a single policeman, do not give him money, it is not legal, tell him you will go to pay at office or nothing, a camera can help in this kind of situation. Buy truemove simcard they have good 3g/4g data plan for cheap, you can see it on their website. Get an international driving license, a good insurance and do not drive drunk or without helmet, if you have an accident, they will ask proof you can pay or they will let you die. Do not joke with immigration officer, just tell them what they want to hear. I'm there, if you need more info you can pm me

    Pattaya beaches are shit, do not take your mother there. Go to Phuket, and don't forget all the surrounding islands. Look for trips on viator.com buying them here will be more expensive. In Phuket use Grab to get around.

    Use Uber to get around in Bangkok, Pattaya. Everything else is a scam. Use AirBnB for place to stay in Bangkok.

    PM me if you need more info.

    Thank you, everyone, for all the suggestions and advises. Can you all give me all the pros and cons of Pattaya as I have already booked the tickets so I really need to know what is so bad about it before considering getting my tickets changed?

    pattaya is good for beers and girls, that's all. and it change a lot these days, so maybe soon, it will be good only for beers, but you can find beer everywhere else in Thailand. The beach is crap, local and foreigners are scammers, police is corrupted, maybe the city with the highest rate of "suicide" in the world ... Your mom will love it :)
