Off to Thailand for a week

Leaving for Bangkok 25th March, going to Taiwan Taipei for 1 day, then bangkok, and thinking about phuket or one of the island like Koh Samui.

Any suggestions from anyone who's already been here?

btw: I found out you can be arrested if you step on money here, cause its got the kings face on it. Women dont use tampoons, and women are not allowed anywhere near monks. There a few thousand stray dogs that wander around and apparently it stinks because they just dump their sewage right into the canals untreated. Hang on, wtf? Why am I going

Japan is expensive as hell. Besides, Thailand and Japan aren't similar at all. I've not been myself (only been to Hong Kong and Singapore in the region), but know a few people who have been and say it's fantastic.

Ask Jesse, he went to Thailand several times.
The people I know who went to Thailand also loved it.

Enjoy!

Well I visited family from a friend of mine there and saw more regular life than grand nature.
I forgot the good places I went, shang mai, I think it was called where I also went.

also...beware of the women! they want your money (but will say something different)....also respect is important there....put your hands together bow your head a little...I forgot a lot of words, but they love it if you try and speak a few of their words.

saying hi is: swat Di Grap
the a's being like in 'LAST'. and the I is more like the E in 'me'.

Japan's not actually expensive at the moment, at least compared to Britain. The yen isn't doing so well against the pound. When my brother went last summer he said everything was really cheap.

Well, in my opinion, Japan is, like 100 times better, than Thailand. For one reason - Japan is the kingdom of manga's, and anime's (and not to even mention J-Horror), so you can all of these you want there.
