    You definitely need to visit the Grand Palace, sometimes called the Kings Palace, also the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. They are both fantastic places ti visit, in fact I have been to both more than three times. They are probably the most cultural places to visit with lots of history, for more up to date things to see and take note of is Soi Nana and Soi Cowboy, both are fairly well known as "Red Light" areas of the city. Soi Cowboy is all bars with very scantily clad youn women trying to entice the men into the bars, Soi Nana is a little more civilised, there are some really good bars down there and some good music can be heard in Hillarys Bar, of which I think there are two or three. The River Market is also well worth a trip out but try not to go during one of the many Thai holidays, it gets extremely busy. Apart from that there are hundreds of other things to see and do, just settle in slowly and then learn to find your way around the city. If you get chance try and escape to one of the northern cities like Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai, they are both so much more relaxed than Bangkok with a lot less traffic and the climate is better. over 4 years ago

    Just as an addition to Chatachuck, don't get there till after 5 or later.the 'normal' stalls are still open. The street market doesn't really get going till later. We spent so long looking at the proper stalls, my husband got fed up so we didn't spend long enough looking at the street stuff. over 4 years ago

    Ping Pong Show!!! It one of these things you have to do just to say you've done it.

    Buy a suit. I know it's very annoying when you get hassled left, right and centre by these suit shops, but they are very good quality and very cheap. So if you wear suits, then get a couple. They even post them home so you don't have to carry them about for the rest of your trip. over 4 years ago
