My girlfriend (we are late 20's-early 30's) and I are landing in Bangkok mid Jan (10th) for our first time, we are thinking 1-2 nights then travelling down to Samui and then going on to the full moon party on the 15th.
I have priced Bangkok airways (£380) return flights, I have had some advice to do everything over there for a much better price but to be honest would feel a bit more relaxed having some bookings in place.
Also some advice on where to stay in Bangkok, would the Sukhumvit area be best? we are looking for good restaurants, shopping and some nightlife but be able to do some sightseeing.
I would like to have a drink at the sky bar, is the area and hotel (Lebua) good?
Sorry for all the different questions, many thanks in advance.
