My family and I will be traveling to Pattaya via Bangkok on April 10 for the first time. I like to plan my trip on a day-by-day basis. Would you have any suggestions on the tourist destinations that I should include in my daily plans.

Bangkok's a big city but in my opinion there's not a lot to do. Definitely check out the Grand Palace and the huge reclining buddha at Wat Pho. That'll take up half a day. A boat trip on the river is also an interesting way to get away from the hustle and bustle for a while.

How many are you?

One of the bettert ways to visit the Palace, Wat Pho, and other obvious sights, is by the Chao Phraya express boats. You can take the BTS skytrain to Saphan Taksin, and hop on an orange flag boat to pier 9, Tha Chang. Head inland, ignoring all the fools telling you everything is closed.

You can also take the express boats to Nonthaburi, pier 30. Nonthaburi is a little more like the rest of Thailand. Not catering to the tourists so much. There is a free museum, and a little ways in, on the main road, there is a nifty open market.

You can have lunch at Rim Fung, a pretty good floating restaurant, just south of the pier.

Or, if you are up for an adventure in dining, you can head to one of my favorites, Baan Rabiang Nam.

On weekends, from the Nonthaburi pier, there are Koh Kred trips offered. Koh Kred is a little island, famous for pottery.

Dinner cruises are fun. Two popular cruises are Loy Nava and Manohra.

Shoppers enjoy Chatuchak Weekend Market, billed as the World's biggest flea market. It operates Friday afternoon until Sunday.
