I know my very question is an oxymoron - nobody really wants a destination with nothing to do, but I am in the beginning stages of planning a trip including BKK and Vietnam, and this is another good resource. I have searched the forum but man, this search really stinks, and the results are really hard to parse, so I figured I'd just ask and hope to get some good suggestions.
So right now, our plan is to fly from BKK to HCMC and then to Phu Quoc in Vietnam for the quiet, do-little long beach weekend we are hoping for, but that two flight trip is less than ideal. Is there a place near BK which would be similar, but easier to get to? Our trip to Phu Quoc will take about 8 hours total so a whole day is lost there, but hopefully for something nice. We are not looking for a party, or luxury, but a quiet bungalo on the beach with locals and good seafood restaurants and a decent neighborhood. A flight would be fine as long as it was a direct flight, or a 2-3 hour bus or boat trip.
Thanks for any leads, and please be gentle! :)
