Bangkok Safe

by choiswee

I am going to bangkok next friday. Just want to ask what is the bangkok situation now? Is there any protests? Because i heard many of my friends cancelled the trip to bangkok.

another question is, staying at ecotel pratunam hotel bangkok, can pls anyone recommend any spa or massage is best and cheap nearby the hotel.

Thank you very much ... in advanced~!!!

Tourists by the millions have been visiting Thailand since the protests ended! Even during the protests thousands and thousands of tourists still showed up in Thailand.

Protests have been over for a while now. During the protests tourists just chose another area of Bangkok to stay in or headed off to other cities.

You will probably be safer in Bangkok than staying in your own capital city!

Good luck.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Shopping Along Silom Soi

by oakleys

Actually when I first walked on along streets of Bangkok, i was pretty darn excited about the shopping. Just like Hongkong, bkk is the place for shopping, where they had little booths set up along the streets selling items from great souvenirs to pirated DVD's/CDs, u would be amazed to what u can pick up. But all the booths on silom soi and patong soi aren't set up until 9pm. So be sure to head out at night if u want to more variety.. It's definitely alive on the streets of silom at night.....actually it's crowded on the streets almost every single nite I was there, but more so on weds/fridays/sats.
Now if u want air-cond shopping, then i suggest MBK, all u have to do is take the train from SALA DAENG which is on silom soi to National stadium, MBK is right there.
But remember to have ur runners on, because this mall is 7 floors huge, packed with electronics to funky shirts, u name it...i'm sure u can find it in that mall.
And if that's not enough, u can try your bargaining skills at the weekend market (located at the Mo Chit station). Alot of great deals, from shirts and jeans, to bowls, pets and plants can be found in the premise.
Hope this helps......have fun! One of the most memorable moments in bkk would have to be the restaurant where i ate at. It's located at khao san rd. Almost half way down the road. It's this thai cuisine open patio restaurant which u will have to enter from a small side walkway. I don't remember what the restaurant is called, but there's not too many thai restaurants with an open patio concept. on that street. So try asking around or do a little searching. The nite i was there, i was seated right in front of the live band who played numerous of Beatles songs. Great food, and amazing atmosphere....one of if not the best dining experience i had in thailand.

Meeting locals

by Unknownsu

Thais are generally the most outgoing and friendly folks I have ever seen or had the opportunity to meet. They are almost always approachable and willing to lend a hand when in need. With a population of about 10 Million, Bangkok is definitely the perfect destination for solo travelers who want to see the world but are too afraid to take the first step!

Roadside vendors.

by Sharrie

Try talking to roadside vendors & be frustrated. Lol... Just joking, of course. I didn't really try the food this trip as I'm not too sure about the hygiene & I didn't want to get sick before proceeding to Kunming, China.

For the brave, try it. Looks good to me!

Cleanliness is next to godliness

by thedouglas

No matter how dirty Bangkok may be, one thing that has impressed me from my very first visit is the cleanliness. The stallholders always clean up and leave a nice tidy pile, which is then collected by a cleaner. There is a small army of mostly women who clean the gutters around populated areas, like Chinatown, and I haven't seen people wilfully litter at I do at home, and there is almost no graffiti to be seen! The people themselves are very clean - despite often the most basic accommodation and facilities available to them. As a frequent tuktuk passenger, I have to say I always notice how clean and tidy the drivers are at all times, as are the people in the streets, stallholders etc. Stallholders are seen fussing and dusting all day long - and, once you have moved on from their store, they will tidy any mess you have left behind! It is therefore respsectful for us as tourists to attend to our grooming, and cleanliness, and rituals such as removing shoes in some shops and houses, rather than assuming anything goes.

The little girls in my main photo are the children of a concierge staffmember from our hotel - what you can almost see is the dirty khlong beside them - you can't see their home, which consists of 3 of the tiniest rooms you have ever seen, where you have to move from room to room via a public outside alley....and the general basic nature of this family lodging. They were all dressed up for a day at Chatuchak with my husband and I.

Pack light

by mitch_yong

Depending on what you would buy.. i ended up taking home 2 bags with me from the initial 1.. Wear light and loose clothing.. weather here is hot but if you are planning to go to temples and the palace, proper clothing is required.. no short or sexy clothings, proper shoes too. Bring along some diarrhea pills just in case your stomach doesnt agree with Thai food.. luckily for me... i had no problems... phew !
