First-time travellers to Thailand who would only stay one night in BBK with two half days.

by barebear

Have the following plan but not sure if it's possible:

Arrive at noon, want to stay some hotel near the National Stadium or Siam areas.
Go to visit the Grand Palace late afternoon
Go to Khao San Rd. at night
Next morning shop around the "former" Central World Plaza area. No idea what's going on there now? Only know Istean is open again. If want to buy some big sizae jeans, is it the right place to go?
Also have a budget of 2000 BHT for hotel in the the National Stadium or Siam areas, any suggestion? Thanks in advance!

Plan 2 for the same above schedule 2 is
arrive at noon
stay at the National Stadium and Siam areas
visit Jim Thompson House late afternoon
shop in the areas around the hotel in Siam/Central World Plaza
Next morning visit the Grand Palace
Go back to the hotel at noon to pick up the luggage to catch the 4:50 pm flight

Which plan sounds better...?

MBK has a couple of stores that carry "big" jeans. Dr. Zu, on the 6th floor, even has size 60! Dr. Zu is located around the "Y1 - Y12 area on this map: http://www.mbk-center.co.th/en/floorplan/plan.php?floor=6

There are many jeans vendors on MBK's 3rd floor, but size 36 is probably tops.

Much of Centralworld is scheduled to reopen, September 28. ZEN will be one obvious exception.

Thank you for your kind reply! We're flying to Bangkok on Oct. 9. It's so good to know the Central World will reopen on Sept.28. I'm sorry about the ignorance. Is Zen the one that was burnt down most in the unrest so it's not gonna open soon?
And do you have any idea about where we can get good choices of male leather shoes?
Anyone else having good recommendation?

Unless you just want shoes just to look good on an occasion or two, I would stick to stores such as Bata. You might also look at Tokyu department store. Both are at MBK Center.

There are plenty of budget shoes around, but experience has taught me that they have short life spans.

We just returned from Bangkok.
I believe Grand Palace is only open until 3:30 or 4:00pm.
You should take under consideration the following:

Arrive at noon you won't be out of the airport until very close to 1:00pm
It will be at least another hour between airport and hotel and then another hour or so, depending on traffic for you to reach Grand Palace. Factor in checking into hotel, dropping off your stuff, etc.
You are looking at arrival time at Grand Palace at approximately 2:30 - 3:00pm
You really need a good 3 hours to see the Grand Palace.
Even if you were to head straight to Grand Palace from airport, hire the driver to wait for you with your luggage in the car, you'd be pressed for time.

Thank you Homer! It's very useful.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Wow, flowers and all!

by anoum

All the public toilets I visited in Bangkok were clean and although those in Wat Pho were both clean and dry, the one at the Central Jetty (where you board the ferries) wins hands down.

Check out the pix!

China Town

by CandS

China Town is a great place to visit while in Bangkok...there are heaps of markets and restaurants through the streets. We stopped off and had dinner in China Town one night and we were glad we did...the food was great and there weren't many tourists at the restaurant we chose... :)

River Cruise - Wat Kalayanamit

by Audrey118

This is Wat Kalayanamit, an immense temple which shelters an equally gigantic Buddha.

Wat Kalayanamit is one of the five temples built in Bangkok by King Rama III. Check out the interior mural dating from the reign of King Rama III.

Blue jeans and taxis

by bulldogtwo

Jeans are acceptable in al of these places. However, understand how hot it is going to be wandering around during the month of May, or any month for that matter in Thailand. You are better off wearing a nice cotton nylon pair of pants and shirt. Columbia makes some great tropic weight clothing. Also if it rains, which it could in May, your jeans will not dry, thus will breathe even less when it gets steamy, and it will. Lightweight loose fitting clothing is ideal. Thai's are conservative in their dress and manner, they appreciate tourists who dress decently and are clean.
As already mentioned, taxis are readily available at all times of the day and night. Make sure that you insist on the meter and that it is on once you start.
Good luck

Mosquito Repellent or Suffer!

by fattytuna

Mosiquito bites are almost unavoidable in Thailand. My girlfriend applied three different methods each day to try to protect herself and still got a few bites. If you know they like you, then be prepared.
