Millennium Park is a must-see for anyone visiting Chicago. Between the Bean and great views of the lake, it's a great introduction to Chicago, and it's close to other sightseeing areas like Grant Park and the Magnificent Mile. The only downside is that the park can become quite crowded at times, and restaurants there can cost an arm and a leg.

Very impressive for a bus station - and you can get just about anywhere in the country if you need to! There's plenty of food and drink available if you're waiting to change buses, and you can even get a massage while you wait for your next bus. It's also conveniently located and not far from the city center. My only complaint is that it can be hard to navigate sometimes, so leave yourself time to find your carrier and get your ticket.

Possibly one of the best night markets in Thailand - second only to Chatuchak in Bangkok. It can get a bit crowded on the main drag, but if you go onto the side streets, it's far easier to look around. There's also a great selection of food vendors, so I recommend getting dinner there as well. Chiang Mai has some of the best shopping in Thailand, so this is the place to get anything you need or souvenirs for friends and family.

Khao San Road is the backpacker hub of Bangkok for a reason - cheap accommodations, a lively party scene, and plenty of shopping. It can be a great place to wander around and meet fellow travelers. However, once you walk around a few times, you've pretty much seen it all, and walking vendors constantly harass you, even when sitting down to eat. Overall, it's definitely worth a stop, but don't spend your whole trip there.

You can find nearly anything you need in Bangkok at Chatuchak market. Though it can get a bit crowded and hot, it is absolutely worth walking through, and it's a great place to pick up inexpensive souvenirs for family and friends. Set aside a few hours for this market - my friend and I got stuck there for nearly five hours! I would recommend going on the weekend as well since all the stalls are open then.
