Sky train in Bangkok

by darrellling

Does anybody know if you can take a suitcase on the skytrain in Bangkok. I want to get to the Ekamai stop and catch the bus to Pattaya

Re: Sky train in Bangkok

Hi, Yes you can. There are wider ticket barriers to enable this :-)

You can, but not all stations have escalators so prepared to haul your bag at some point.

Re: Sky train in Bangkok

No problem with suitcase. I use the Skytrain pretty often in Bangkok. I sometimes have two big bags with me.

The bus you want is the 2 hour VIP bus. Get the ticket from the ticket window inside, right hand side. Bus leaves from first spot on back dock. Make sure the bus is the 2 hour bus not the slower 4 hour bus to Pattaya.

(Avoid any parked Pattaya bus outside at the front of the terminal. That is the slow bus and no toilet on it - very cold too!)

Where are you starting at? If you are starting from the airport there is transportation to Pattaya from there too.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Khao San Road

by deeper_blue

If you have just arrived in Bangkok and need a place to stay, just head for this touristy part of town. There are lots of options here and you won't have to rely on the taxi driver to take you some place where he gets commission.
It's a happening place with lots of markets and places to eat and drink. Just watch your belongings at night.

Theres always things to do in...

by lillapenguin

Theres always things to do in Bangkok and if your full of energy you can be satified with a lot of sightseeing. The temples are great attractions, beautiful architecture standing everywhere in the city, temples are like hidden jewels. The most known temples are Wat Po (temple of reclining buddha), Wat Suthat (Emerald Buddha), Wat Benchamabophit (The Marble Temple)...there are so many more to see!! Shopping until the early hours of the morning !! If you love to shop till you drop then your dreams can come true! But be warned, streets are filled to the brim with people (and pickpockets) so be careful to stay close to friends/family and be prepared for some hectic haggling on the street markets.

Thai ties

by Pierre_Rouss

Just for the fun of it, buy some Thai ties. It's fun to say.
Silk ties are not too expensive and are of very good quality. Thailand is a good place to buy some as some other surrounding countries will only have batik ties but not silk. Same comments for scarves.

What to wear when visiting temples

by Loops

I'd read all sorts of things about how you should wear closed shoes (not sandals or flip flops) when visiting temples, but generally I found that this was not correct. The first temple I went to I wore trainers because of this and found that they were quite laid back about the whole shoe thing.

You have to take your shoes off anyway to go inside the main prayer rooms of the temples, and shoes with laces are a pain if you are visiting many. Pretty much everyone wore sandals and flip flops, including the people who worked there.

They are not happy about women wearing sleeveless tops, but a sarong or shirt draped over your shoulders was fine. Women with t-shirts with short sleeves were not asked to cover up, it seemed to be only those whose shoulders were showing.

Shorts are not really acceptable, but again, a simple sarong wraped around your legs is perfectly fine and you should try and carry one with you if you find long trousers too hot for a days sightseeing. I saw women (including Thai women) wearing knee length skirts and this didn't seem to be a problem.

I have been to temples in other parts of Thailand and the less visited ones are stricter, but in Bangkok, they are used to the ways of tourists and are prepared for the more scantily dressed, even giving out free loans of shawls/sarongs for them to use. The guards were very happy and jolly and gave out the shawls with a smile, telling my friend that she was 'too sexy for Buddha', which made her day!

Buddhist Monks

by machomikemd

Thailand is officially a Buddhist country and some 95% of Thais are Buddhists. In many ways Thai Buddhism is a very laissez-faire religion, but if you are not a Buddhist there are some things you should be aware of. Always remove your shoes and dress smartly when entering a temple. Never allow your feet to point towards an image of the Buddha.

Monks are not allowed to have any physical contact with women. This means that whether on a crowded bus or as a student in your class, a monk cannot sit next to a woman. If you are a woman teacher and you have a monk as a student, you should not try to hand anything directly to him. Place handouts, for example, within his reach and allow him to pick them up himself.
