Bangkok & things to do and see

The capital is Bangkok and before it was Atthutthaya

What to see and expect in this Metropolia

 We explore the day and night scene plus the vicinity such as Ayutthaya via a day trip with the railway starting from Hua Lamphong terminal . ​​

This is an almost ideal combination considering the permanent traffic chaos in the city. To come to town use the Airport Rail Link accessible from the basement.

The capital of Thailand is one of the most attractive Asian metropolia for shopping and nightlife, the city became the Siam capital after the Burmese destroyed the former capital Ayutthaya in 1767. A great oriental travel destination which has it all what a traveler to the east is after, excellent hotels, great sightseeing, good, diverse and exotic food and one of the best nightlife on earth plus shopping .  

Your arrival and first encounter probably will be probably via Suvarnabhumi the rather new airport. Your second destination could be Sukhumvit or Silom area where plenty of hotels are and the BTS Skytrain runs as elevated train in the middle of the Sukhumvit road is also one of the best shopping areas and several nightspots are along the street such as Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy, other nightlife places are Patpong, Thaniya Plaza and opposite are a gay nightlife area.

Plenty of Hotels   

Especially in the 3 and 4-star category means to check the best room rates
at the icon above.
 
There are also many 5 star hotels and probably the top of Bangkok hotels is to the west on the riverfront that is the Oriental. In general take accommodation which is not far from the BTS Skytrain Line , this elevated train serving Bangkok people along Sukhumvit and Silom road with two branches, one is along Sathon road and the extension is to further west including the southern Bangkok Bus Terminal. The problem is the station is far away instead of extending this to the southern bus terminal, who is sleeping?

The other section Skytrain at Sukhumvit line and extends up to the north bus terminal at Mo Chit, again need taxi ride and the other end is at Ekkamai close to the eastern bus terminal for Pattaya which could be a interesting day trip or maybe a longer stay to enjoy the beaches and nightlife which is one of the most attractive in the ASEAN region, and Trat, actually there are also buses to all eastern destinations from Mo Chit, find more about touring the country.

Sukhumvit road is also one of the best shopping areas and several nightspots are along the street such as Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy, other nightlife places are Patpong, Thaniya Plaza and opposite are a gay nightlife area.

Travel by BTS  and Subway or Motorbikes are the best.

Almost all international and domestic flights, long haul bus lines and truck transportation passes the city. This is also one of the weakest sides in anything moving in Thailand because it is almost impossible to move anything anywhere without going through the city, this made it one of the most important travel destinations in Asia.

Bangkok is almost in the center of former Siam and only 120 km south of the old capital Ayutthaya. Almost all newer buildings are of Western-style architectures. In the countryside, the predominant style is following the old "Chinese Shop Houses" which are two or 3 story buildings where at street level is a shop which often also function as a garage and above is the living quarter.

Bangkok red light district at Thaniya Plaza
A great travel destination with plenty of attractions, shopping, nightlife, culture and top level luxury hotels, but also enough cheap accommodations. One of the most amazing feature is, its quite cheap and affordable for everyone even on a very slim travel budget. As a tourist you wont fall pray to crime if you just pay attention to the most usual preventive measures.

The waterway runs through before emptying into the Gulf of Thailand with a very slow water speed due to the shallow river plain.

Thanks to its advantageous geographic location there is a huge sea and river ports right in the center and some gigantic suspension bridges.

A pleasant tropical climate is around with a high-level air pollution and there are more or less 2 seasons, the wet season during the monsoon with abundant rainfall and the dry season during the other time of the year with plenty of the sunshine and heavy thunderstorms from time to time.

The History of the city is rather short

The best to see what happen before is a day trip to visit a great museum such as the Bangkok National Museum at Sanam Luang where also the Grand Palace is.

The Thai capital preceding was Ayutthaya , today just120km kilometers to the north. All older buildings and temples are there. It's easy to do a sightseeing trip to see all the historic monuments of the past.

Some of the most scenic attractions of the city are the Grand Palace and a long tail boat ride through the "klongs". The floating markets and the gigantic skyline of the skyscraper and the newly built bridges. The urban landscape is quite chaotic and without any planning a good example how this should be done is Yangon in Myanmar, a legacy of the British.

An inner city ring road and another circular one further outside makes it quite easy to drive quickly to anywhere. Once you left this ring roads the extremely chaotic traffic will block and delay any movement.

The every day gridlock is mainly caused by a completely wrong switching of the traffic light, which brings any traffic to a halt.

The main problem is that most traffic lights get a red phase of about 2 minutes and even more during that time the cars and small motor bikes, there are millions get so intertwined that it takes a long time to get this chaos moving again.

Many motorist switches off their engines due to the long time gap and about 10% of them cant get the engine running again or only after a substantial delay during all others are blocked.

Traffic move over two impressive bridges among others the Taksin bridge over the Chao Phraya or Menam River. Road travel is one of the most dangerous in the world, the other day I drive in the night from Phuket to the capital and counted 9 bad accidents, this is a distance of about 900km.

Worst is with small motorbikes because the people are extremely careless and don't obey any rules everyone who comes to the country of smiles and use local vehicles should take a good insurance, especially backpacker because they usually are not traveling in bigger cars means more vulnerability. When moving on the surface use the bus, it's a bit slow but cheap and rarely accident happen with them.
What to do at night in Bangkok
Nightlife Photos
A Bangkok nightlife tour is fascinating and everything imaginable in this context is available. The best is starting at places such as Patpong and Nana Plaza plus Soi Cowboy and Thaniya Plaza (a Japanese domain) these places are for all gender, why all? Because in Thailand they have 3 genders, no joke, this is women, men, and ladyboys or transvestites. to enjoy yourself. Keep one saying in mind in the country of smile and that is "same same but different" 

When you are not interested in the carnal desires enjoy a shopping trip through myriads of low-priced shops and road stalls or other things to do such as just sit down in one of the go-go bars and watch the endless coming and going off pretty Thai Bar girls.

If you are from the other side, means gay, have a look at the side road opposite Taniya Plaza just about 50 m further up Surawong Road there is the same setting like Patpong with clubs and bars for the gay-oriented with plenty of gay go-go bars und hundreds of guys. Actually, this is one of the biggest in Bangkok, other are Nana Plaza and the small alleys along Sukhumvit Road.

Ultimately your night will maybe wind up at one of Bangkok’s hotel with one of the before mentioned.
