Everything To Know About Bangkok!
The Temples of Bangkok. One of the most popular activities in Bangkok, is to see the many temples. The Grand Palace is the most popular and there’s a photo gallery. The Reclining Buddha is also very popular with tourists, with many pictures to share.
BTS SKYTRAIN. I love the BTS Skytrain. Make sure you get a good BTS Skytrain map and become familiar with this popular and inexpensive way to move about Bangkok. Yes, you can take the BTS Skytrain from the Sunvarnabhumi International Airport.
Going to Siam Paragon? Take the BTS Skytrain to the Siam Paragon shopping complex. Also, consider using the Bangkok Public Bus Transportation system. It’s a bit more difficult to understand, is always crowded, but is very inexpensive.
Floating Market? The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is not far from Bangkok. It’s an easy half-day trip via car or van, or you could drive yourself. I often hire a taxi for the day at 3,000thb for the entire day plus tip.
You can also take a bus or van from the Victory Monument area. Enjoy photos of Bangkok’s Floating Market – Damnoen Saduak, as this is a “must-see” site.
When I go to the Bangkok Floating Market, I also head over to another even more famous location near Bangkok – The Bridge Over The River Kwai. This is an incredible tourist attraction, very historical, and is also a “must-see” location when you come to Thailand.
It can be a full day trip to do both, but will be one of the best days you spend in Bangkok.
Soi Cowboy & Nana Plaza. Two of Bangkok’s most famous Red Light Districts are Soi Cowboy (photo gallery) and Nana Plaza. They are both along Sukhumvit Road, with Soi Cowboy located at Soi 23 and Nana Plaza located on Soi 4.
The Patpong area is another Red Light District and is well-known for having some of the best Japanese restaurants in Bangkok.
Shopping. You can’t come to Bangkok and not go shopping. The Siam Paragon complex is massive and also has the Siam Ocean World tourist attraction on the bottom floor. The food court is large and has an incredible large variety of cuisines and different ethnic foods.
Also, Terminal 21 is a very popular shopping mall and has an excellent food court with cheap Thai food!
Need A Computer Or Technology? Head over to Pantip Plaza for the latest in computer, cheap software, and information technology.
Bangkok Airports. Yes, Bangkok hosts the very large, international Suvarnabhumi Airport, while the Don Mueang Intl. Airport handles most of the domestic, inter-Thailand flights. If you’re flying to Krabi, Chiang Mai, or another small Thailand city – you’ll probably fly out of Don Mueang Intl. Airport.
It’s a major vehicle for commerce, and also known for dinner cruises and commuters taking long-tail boats as a means of transportation. The Chao Phraya is stunning at night!
Bangkok Traffic. Yes, the traffic in Bangkok is as bad as you’ve heard. It’s crowded, busy, full of motorcycles, many Tuk Tuk, and seldom moving. While you’re visiting Bangkok, you’ll probably find yourself in a traffic jam that is barely moving.
Thailand Currency. You’ll want to become familiar with the Thai currency in Thailand before you come. It’s simple to understand, but you can only use the Thai Baht for financial transactions in Thailand.
