Near the New Year, I will be making bookings go to Thailand, and I need to decide my destination. The popular places which I have come down to are Bangkok and Pattaya and now I need to choose one of these places. I don't know which would be best to visit, or has more to offer a tourist. Going with me would be my friends, and we are the kind who would mostly be out seeing places and trying out different things to do and of course trying the different food there. I would like to find out from everyone on the forum which is better Bangkok or Pattaya?
