Ratchadapisek is huge and far away is relative in Bangkok. Where are you staying and how far is far?

From Ratchdapisek you can take the Metro to Silom and then interchange to BTS to Saphan Takisn (last stop) and walk a bit its not very far.

The Holy Redeemer church is perhaps out of the way for you, but they do have English services. See my tip below:

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Coconut milk

by tashka

It's hot in Bangkok, you walk the sunny streets dying for a drop of cool water, and then you see a woman selling coconuts! What a treat! Cool green coconuts full of fresh coconut milk. The seller opens them with a sharp knife, puts straws in them - they are ready for drinking.

I'll tell you honestly, I didn't like the taste. But tastes differ, and it's worth trying.

One small coconut costs 10 baht.

Taste the Local Flavor - "Snacks of All Types"

by i-s-a

Wherever I am, I can't resist sampling the local snacks and tidbits. At the photo you can see rice crispies, spicy anchovies and my favorite Thai sweets...tamarind!

You can buy these almost everywhere around Bangkok...especially in markets, groceries and even in night bazaars. A good "pasalubong" to your friends too.

Excercise your tastebuds and try these local specialties!

Bangkok Accomodations

"Best" is relative to your pocketbook and taste. If you are asking about Khao San Rd then I assume that you want budget along with that best? It may also depend on what you are wanting to be near and see.
There are some good budget hotels along the Sukuhumvit Rd area that are clean and well run. I think you may get a lot more specific answers if you can narrow down what part of the city you would like to saty in. The river area can be nice also and is closer to the Khao San rd area, and there is Chinatown, but a bit more congested and noisy. Let us know and someone should be able to direct you to something more specific.

When visiting temples or any...

by nutt03z

When visiting temples or any holy area, please do NOT wear shorts. If you do, they would make you put on some sarong thing and then you will have to walk around in it all the time you are at the place. :)

The picture here shows the old ayuthia ruins. Shorts is ok here, but at the site there is also a functioning beautiful temple. You cant use shorts in there.

Clothes

by xiquinho

Bangkok is a big city though, so it's wise not to try and pack in too much, especially as the humidity can be tiring. The key thing to remember in Bangkok is the need to dress appropriately when visiting sites venerated by Thais, such as royal palaces and Buddhist temples. Shorts, short sleeves, short skirts and sarongs do not cut the mustard and admittance may be refused and offence almost certainly taken.
