The first thing I think when anyone tells me they are going to Thailand is "You dirty dirty pervert" hahaha.
Im sure in most cases that says more about me than the person whos making the trip
I would actually make the effort to see the big golden Buddha, locals are not so strongly religious they would see any insult in you visiting if its

Also check out the palace if you can.
I do think you need to check out Soi Cowboy or Nana Plaza if for no other reason than its not something you will ever see in a western country with
the possible exception of Amsterdam.
Just avoid the so called Ping Pong shows, In Bangkok they are basically a tourist shakedown, you wont see a show and end up leaving significantly

Alsobe careful of girls who wanna sit with you for 2 reasons
1) if they ask "can I join you for a drink?" what they actually mean is "can you buy me a ridiculously overpriced coke that I will drink really

2) Its a DUDE!!!!! to be fair an unbelievably hot dude but still a dude.
If you have time come see Laos, basically the same as Thailand just 30 years behind and no sex tourism
I look forward to hearing about your adventures
