you will love Pattaya so much when it comes to night life and the Night Market at Patpong in Bangkok.

I believe the scuba around

I believe the scuba around Hua Hin isn't so great. My favorite travel site for Thailand is the Fodor's Thailand forum. www.fodors.com, click on Forums then Thailand. Search for scuba. I would say Phuket is a good place to start, or Koh Samui. Mandi

Hey there mmyke

first of all - have a great time. this is a great place. If you're looking for a great yet not expensive hotel try the Accor, they have something called "city super sale" and give great prices there - http://pea.to/amp12

ayutthaya for me. but it's

ayutthaya for me. but it's not a beach area so you can't scuba dive there. i love the temple ruins. don't know about the beaches and the scuba sites though coz there are better beaches and dive sites in my own country imo. try to stay at hostels so you can meet other travelers and get cheap travel tips from others. apart from the affordable accommodation of course. you're gonna be staying for three weeks so it would be best to try all places in the country. or travel by land to neighboring countries in indochina like vietnam or cambodia. never been to these countries myself but i'm planning to when i go home for my vacation this year. would've loved to try watching one of the 'shows' in patpong when i went to bangkok a couple of years ago but imy travel buddy back then was such a killjoy.

I travelled around Thailand

I travelled around Thailand 3 years ago... I really fell in love with Koh Samui even though its very touristic... I have a contact that owns a small resort called Shambala really cheap beach accomodation and I mean Cheap! but really well maintained... can pass it on if you want Coral & Raya island are the best in my view for diving as they have Fab reefs and are away from the hustle & bustle... If you want somewhere really remote then head to Ko Adang, this is where you find amazing jungle, waterfalls & great nature.... Just be safe whereever you end up.. we were robbed of everythin in the first 10 days!! they packed up all our stuff and left us with NOTHING! however it was the best 3 months of Travelling that I did!
