Bangkok ~ The City That Gets a Bad Name for NO Reason
"Bangkok is s*#@, don't stay more than two days," was the advice I got from many travellers before getting here. All of them recommended different Khao San places but the best part of Bangkok is everything but Khao San.
Insider Tip:Stay in places away from Khao San and Soi Cowboy. Not only will they be cheaper but you will find a higher class of travellers, facilities and people looking to honestly help you. Lots of people also don't know about the river boats. Don't bother with a full day pass as you won't use it enough to get your moneys worth. Wait for the Orange Flag (15 baht) or Blue Flag (40 baht, comes more often but fewer stops). Don't get sucked into ANY special deal a tuk tuk driver offers you.
