Bangkok is undeniably one of Southeast Asia’s most energetic capitals. The city center is an exciting mix of old buildings, enormous shopping malls, and holy shrines that can take days to fully explore. Hunt for souvenirs in the Chatuchak Market or visit the shining temples of Wat Arun and the Grand Palace’s Wat Phra Kaew, considered the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand.

Take a walk down Khaosan Road, famous for its endless stretch of bars, restaurants, and street food vendors all packed together under a wild array of neon lights.

Bangkok is a very interesting city. Thailand is the tenth country I have been to and as a westerner I must say Bangkok is unique unto itself. The food is different, the culture is different, the language is unique, and even the way one views the world will certainly change. I recommend going to Bangkok with friends unless you're a very experienced traveler because there is no doubt you will experience a situation which will throw you off in perhaps a matter of seconds.
I really enjoyed visiting the different temples, Ayutthaya, and the Royal Palace for the amazing architecture and history. I would recommend Bangkok to others solely for that and recommend going with a tour guide who can explain the history behind the different sites, which really made the experience incredibly memorable for me! I also did some of the other touristy things like the floating market, Chatuchak Weekend Market, Thipsamai Pad Thai, etc which were okay but slightly underwhelming compared to my expectations going into my trip to Bangkok. The actual city itself is not for me and is a bit too busy, smelly, and dirty for my liking. I did enjoy the time I spent at Lumpini Park in the shade by the lake which was a nice respite from the extreme heat and reminded me of a mini-Central Park. I felt I could have spent fewer days in Bangkok and still done all the worthwhile attractions. I enjoyed my other experiences in different parts of Thailand much more and was glad I started my trip in Bangkok instead of ending there. It’s worth going and visiting, but I would recommend compacting more attractions/sites into fewer days.
I am a regular visitor. However, the Songkran chaos in almost every street, have made it an unpleasant experience, and everyone was trying to make a quick buck. It started Friday late afternoon and by Tuesday..........enough is enough of plastic guns and drunk people!
- Execellent food (Thipsamai pad thai, T&K seafood, Home Cafe Tha Tien); - Many choice of transportation (Bus, boat, BTS, MRT, airtrain, tuk tuk, grab, taxi); - Vibrant and fun (megamalls, songkran festival) - Many attractions (temples, markets, night markets)
Pad Thai, Tom Yum and Bingsu was the greatest food I have eaten in Thailand. You should have Pad Thai, Tom Yum with good price in Thai taste area, King Power. Also you can take them in Icon Siam 6th floor with x2 price but just same quality. Ratchada night market is great location for cheap street food. You should take BTS, MRT and ARL to move in the central and east of Bangkok. In the west of city, you can take taxi (meter), if not, take grab (with x2 price). You shouldn't take tuktuk, their price are so high, may be x5~10 taxi price. If you don't have time enough, take motobike taxi, they move very fast.
Bangkok is a wonderful city. Unfortunately, it has become more polluted. It is also unfortunate that it has not been able to resolve its political future. It seems like a city on the decline but worth looking at before more time passes.
