Travel to BKK next wed till sat...

by ylhang

Hi, i have planned to travel to Bangkok in nov' 10 quite sometime ago..

Wonder if Bangkok is safe to travel, what i mean is that the flooding very serious in Bangkok as well?

I am going to BKK mainly for shopping and relaxing. Do you think this is the right season to travel to BKK? In fact, never think of cancel the trip. Just want to hear more truths from you guys in the city.

Between, not going to miss Chatuchak market this trip to BKK. Is friday a business day in the market as well? My flight is in sat noon and probably unable to make a last minutes shopping there, plan to go there if the market available on friday..

Don't worry about Bangkok. There was some flooding near the river areas but Sukhumvit, Pratunam and most of Bangkok is pretty good. Weather is okay. Many Thais think it is even a little too cool for them and have light jackets on but tourists from N. America and Europe have t-shirts on.

No real problem with Skytrain, subway or new Rail Link. With new Rail Link up and working you can even get to the Pratunam area for only 15 baht using the City Line direct from the airport. Connect to the Skytrain at Phaya Thai if you want. Or, take a meter taxi to Sukhumvit or Siam area for less than 90 baht from last 3 stops in Pratunam. (No local rail service after midnight right now.)

If you can't go to Chatuchak then spend your time at MBK where it is air conditioned anyway. Lots of good places to eat at in the MBK mall.

Bangkok is quite safe, other than the typical dangers of any large city. The flood have only affect isolated riverside locations, and have not thwarted tourists. Downtown shopping is business as usual.

This last week, the weather has been great. Highs have been just under 30ยบ, with lows in the low 20's.

We only visit Chatuchak on Fridays. By afternoon, much of the market is open, with plenty to occupy just about any shopper. But, the best thing is that the crowds are lighter.

You can take the BTS skytrain to Mo Chit. It's a short walk from there. But, if you are staying near the MRT subway, the Kamphaengphet station lets you out right inside the market.

Your VT homepage is empty, a pity. A brief introduction might get you more personalized replies.
Still, I am also in Thailand as from next week, but worry little about the weather. In my experience, Bangkok weather in November is pleasant, rarely too hot, occasional rains and some cooler spells of short duration. It's different in the south of Thailand, where I had mostly bad weather in the two previous years. But I ignore the today's headlines and booked hotels in the Hat Yai region for end-November, confident that the place will be clean and the monsoon period over by that time.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

3-day visit in bangkok

by gemi80

if you're on a limited time to visit Bangkok like I did, better do without a guide..don't worry about getting lost coz u won't..there are a lot of tourist police around...also you could see a lot of tourists around...so u won't feel like you're out of place...as long as you won't hesitate to ask and you have a map( that has the name of the places written in thai), you won't get lost....if you're going to somewhere that is not no clear in the map, have a thai write it in thai before you venture out coz the taxi drivers cannot read english alphabets...maps are freely given in the airports..take one or two and ur all set for your escapade in bangkok...you could go to every tourist attraction most recommended in just 3 days, we did..well im talking about bangkok, we haven't gone to pattaya or any other city...but if you need to prioritize, go to GRAND PALACE(that's a compound of temples), WAT PHO(located behind grand palace),CHATUCHAK weekend market(cheap pet accessories, tshirt souvenirs, n crafts), PRATUNAM(cheap women's clothes, wholesale price), SIAM square and TEMPLE of DAWN(that's the one u always see in the postcard) i love the Thais....i love the shopping........if there would be another chance to go back, i would...

Good source of travel information

by sourbugger

The magazine 'Farang', is aimed very squarely at the Khao -san sort of traveller / backpacker.

It's breezy FHM kind of style is very readable and often quite funny. It cats as a good source of information about both Bangkok and other places in Thailand. It's on-line pages perform a similar job. You can pick up a copy at most book stalls for about 100Bhat.

UPDATE : now name-changed to 'Untamed travel'

CHRISTMAS IN BANGKOK

by Adeline_Foo

Since I was in Bangkok in December, I spent my christmas there. Although Thailand is generally a Buddist country, most of the commercial and shopping places still decorated up with Christmas lights.

DOs AND DON'Ts

by hana_aya

Learn a few words of Thai if only "hello" and "thank you".
Thais appreciate it very much.
Be polite and respectful toward older people.
Sample the local food and try out some of Thailand's exotic fruits.
But not the food on the street since the food may be contaminated
and will give you a sickness.
Try and learn a little about local customs and culture.
Take off your shoes when entering a Thai home.
Smile a lot. When visiting a temple or palace, dress properly.
Don't attempt to touch monks, especially if you are a female.

Table manners

by machomikemd

. A fork and spoon are the usual eating utensils. However, noodles are often eaten with chopsticks.
. The spoon is held in the right hand and the fork in the left. The fork is used to guide food on to the spoon. Sticky rice, a northern Thai delicacy, is often eaten with the fingers of the right hand.
. Most meals are served as buffets or with serving platters in the centre of the table family- style.
. You may begin eating as soon as you are served.
. Leave a little food on your plate after you have eaten to show that you are full. Finishing everything indicates that you are still hungry.
. Never leave rice on your plate as it is considered wasteful. The words for food and rice are the same. Rice has an almost mystical significance in addition to its humdrum 'daily bread' function.
. Never take the last bite from the serving bowl.
. Wait to be asked before taking a second helping.
. Do not lick your fingers.
