Bangkok Pocket Guide

Images Of Bangkok

Bangkok is a melting pot of nationalities. It's hard to think of a city anywhere else in the world where so many travellers lay their hat at the one time. The Thai capital is the base point for travellers about to embark on a trip around not just Thailand, but the whole of South East Asia. The city is also one of the most popular stop off points for those either travelling to or from Australia. Many who travel there start their journeys on the infamous Khao San Road.

    9/10 would recommend

    Make sure you taxis use their meter or they will try to cheat you. The buses are easy to catch. We were trying to find a party scene the one night we were there but had a hard time with that. Plenty of great temples to visit, I'd definitely recommend visiting The Grand Palace!

    Great place

    My fiance and I had a lot of fun while we were there. The people were friendly, the food was great, and it was easy to just walk around and find interesting things. We don't really party, so I can't give any information or opinions there.

    Thailand = awesome. Bangkok - not so much

    Spent 3 nights in Bangkok as part of a group tour down south. The islands and national park down south are amazing. When it comes to large cities I am one who loves to just wander and enjoy walking around town. This is very hard to do in Bangkok. But food was great. No point wasting your money trying to eat western food. It's 3x the price or more and not even very good. Stick with Thai meals and spend your money on some beer!

    Insider Tip:Cooking school was a great use of time

    Great International City

    We enjoyed our time. The street food is fantastic! The cheaper, the better. Most of the Thai people are extremely friendly and welcoming to visitors. Chinatown is a lot of fun, and there are more markets than there is time to visit.

    Insider Tip:There are scams unfortunately. The "Little Buddha" and the "Thai Factory" don't exist, and it is most likely not a Thai holiday. If someone tells you that the temple or palace is closed today, just say thanks and keep walking. Also, vendors tend to jack up the prices of goods such as t-shirts and sunglasses, etc. when they see that you are a tourist. Work them down to at least half the price. If they don't budge, walk away. There will definitely be another vendor selling the same t-shirt down the road.
