If your stay in Bangkok is on a weekend you should check out the Chatuchak Market. It’s one crazy shopping experience!

@pinkshoes: I agree, I went to the market when I was in Bangkok and it was huge! So much stuff, but sometimes its the same touristy crap at the different stalls.. Some neat stuff to be found for sure. Its worth checking out! I still think I bought more souvenirs at MBK though.
Your trip looks awesome I am jealous 🙂 Have an awesome time! You will really love Thailand, nice people, great food and lots to see and do. Very unique, and try at least one street vendor food..

@anne B: There are a couple tiger places that you can go to, I heard the one in Bangkok wasn’t great. I went to the Tiger Kingdom in Chiang Mai instead.
You pay extra to play with the baby tigers. I went in the 6-9 month old cage. They didn’t confirm this, but they were probably drugged since they were sleepy and not aggressive at all. They were in cages (decent size) but didn’t look to be mistreated. But of course I had to do this typical tourist stuff while I was there.. Like play with the Tigers and ride an Elephant. I have a few pics but don’t want to hyjack the thread 😛
Kitty wanted to play 😉
