Bangkok Travel Tips

15 Bangkok Travel Tips

Firstly, I'll like to apologize to everyone for not updating the past few days as I've been busy with work and I just got back from Thailand. That's why I'm actually writing a random article about Bangkok, Thailand.

I was stranded in Bangkok last week due to bad flight delays and etc. I was done with my model assignment and shopping when I was told that I'll be stuck in Bangkok for another 2 nights! I was starting to get panic? Luckily for me, my beloved fellow model who's a Thai, Jesika accompanied me and helped me enjoy my time in Bangkok despite the unforeseen circumstances and made me had a memorable and learning experience.

Here's 15 Bangkok Travel Tips that I recommend to everyone!

  • Buy a Nancy Chandler map. It's like having a Thai friend around you 24/7. It's a great map and it'll ensure you won't get lost!
  • Book a massage a Thann Sanctuary on the top floor of Gaysorn Plaza
  • Buy a Thailand Tattler magazine. Doesn't matter if you know the players or not: it's still fascinating and exciting read.
  • Visit the Gourmet Paradise on the bottom floor of Siam Paragon
  • Avoid the Phranakorn-Nornelen at all cost! Don't ask me why but just don't!
  • Stay at the Pullman Bangkok King Power. It may not be the best location in the world, but it's close to the Sky Train and near to malls like Siam Paragon, MBK and etc. And it's a 5-star hotel with a 3-star rate Big value for our hard earned $$$
  • Stay at the Navalai River Resort even just for a night! if you can get a river-facing balcony room! Trust me the views are splendid and it's convenient and near to malls, tourists attractions and the famous, "EMERALD BUDDHA".
  • Book your hotels through online travel agents! Trust me it's way cheaper then booking at the hotel itself! I recommend HotelsCombined as they guarantee the cheapest rate available anywhere with a money back guarantee! I saved about USD$90 by booking for my hotel rooms through them!
  • Walk through the medical museum at Siraraj Hospital if you're scientifically curious and have a strong stomach. And Corrections Museum too!
  • The cliche "must-sees" are worth seeing: the Grand Palace, the big-name wats, Patpong, Chatuchak Market (not for the claustrophobic), Jim Thompson House
  • Rent a bike or car and drive around The Ancient City. It's fun and exciting!
  • Soak in the Erawan Museum. Gorgeous, unique.
  • Use the Skytrain. So easy, efficient and way better then cabs!
  • Must experience and enjoy a massage at Ruen Nuad! Classic, soothing and cheap!
  • Dine outside at Cabbages and Condoms, a boutique restaurant! Yummylicious!
So what do you guys think? Any Bangkok experts that can add on more? Hope it helps! However if Bali is on your mind, then do read - Bali Travel Guide, 11 Bali Travel Tips and Bali Hotel Reviews that will come handy for you!

Yes, a map is a very good idea. It helps you to locate places of interest and attractions. I went through a website that gave me a great discount hotel in Bangkok right in the heart of the city and I had a marvelous time as I got to save tons of money with deep discount rates. This website offered discount online booking and did I take up offer! Wow! The range of discount hotels that they gave me was simply awesome and I found it easy to get across to the attractions!

Travelling in and around Asia is fairly safe if you use your head and don’t forget where you are might as well be a million miles away from home. Thailand on a whole is probably the safest South East Asian destination for tourists to go to. There are of course some dangers to take into consideration and female solo travellers should be vigilant if they are doing any overnight trips alone or taking taxis at night by themselves.
One thing to watch out for is the long haul overnight bus journeys where organised gangs rifle the storage holds under the busses. This happens a lot so don’t leave anything valuable down there. A lot of the tour operators refuse to acknowledge that they have been robbed and you might find it tricky getting any reimbursement back off them. If you do find yourself in a spot of bother then check out Thailand lawyer which as a load of information for where you stand legally should the moment arise.
