Riots, Food and Red Light Districts
I arrived in Bangkok in the middle of the anti-government protests so my experience may be different to most. The protests were surprisingly peaceful and not as bad as I would have thought considering the media coverage of them. Being a foreigner I was not hassled by protesters at all The best thing about Bangkok for me was the street food, it's safe, incredibly varied and very cheap. It's also everywhere, so you never have to travel far for a meal.
