Toronto Island is a must see and it is basically free, an oasis in the middle of the city. The island is a like a large peaceful park with beaches (there's a nude beach, gay beach as well as regular beaches), rollerblading, biking and walking paths, and even an amusement park and free petting zoo for children.
Ferries leave every 15 minutes from Bay St and Queens Quay at Harbourfront, just south of Union Station. There's plenty of parking too. www.toronto.ca/parks/island/index.htm
Klong Toey is an area of Bangkok that most tourists will never visit. It is the slums where the poorest people live. Here you will meet real Thai people, people who are dealing with the harshest aspects of life in Bangkok. They are friendly with nothing to offer but a sincere smile. They are happy to see visitors, it shows people care. A visit to Klong Toey will leave you questioning what you thought you knew about Thailand, and perhaps even about yourself and what you thought you valued.
