Read some VT tips in the Thailand pages. I think the hotel is consider pretty central. It depends on where you consider central bangkok. There are many taxi and metro systems to get you where you are going and it is cheap. For three days there, I chose a package tour for all your interest and then the other two days on your free will. MBK center is a must, the whole area will take a day to get through. Relax for a foot massage in-between the shopping and tourist. Cheers Tommy x

Hi Saraton,

If the Majestic Grand is at Sukhumvit Soi2, the nearest BTS Station is Plenchit Station, only 400m walk. From here you can buy 1 day pass ticket for tralvel during the day.

Here is some idea.

Shopping : MBK/Paragon department store/Siam Center
Take the BTS to Siam Center station (only 2 station from Plenchit).

Shopping: Chatuchak (JJ)
Take a BTS to Morchit Station an walk not so far to JJ . Or Take a BTS to Asoke Station and connect the MRT Train to Kam-pang-pet station,not JJ. Then,You will found yourself in the center of JJ.

Travel along Chao Phaya River: China Town/Wat Arun/Grand Palace and Wat Phra kaew/Kaosarn Rd.
Take a BTS to Taksin Station and walk to pier. Take the boat and drop to above place. Boat ticket for weekend is about 15 Baht and for weekday may be cheaper. Or if you need private , there are many boat for hire on that pier.

Have a nice trip
Mali

Travel Tips for Bangkok

weather in Thailand for APRIL

by bulldogtwo

You are going to have a lot more heat, more heat and a lot of humidity this time of year. Actually it's the dry season just before the rains. If it does rain you are probably going to like it! If not to cool off for the change in weather. But heat and humidity is somewhat relative depending on where you are coming from, the climate you are used to and like and how fast you can acclimate if you have to. Leaving this week, lucky YOU!
Have FUN!

Peaceful Environmont

by RoyJava

In the bustle of Bangkok town there are some spots you can relax in a peaceful environment. Jim Thompson's House & Museum is one of these places. Ofcourse the remarkable story about the missing American who revived the Thai silk industry, and the beautiful colonial-styled house help to experience all of the mysteries of this fine place ... We had a nice walk along the traditional teak houses, saw some great art, had a wonderful lunch for not that much money, an a very nice rest. It took me back to Indonesian memories, the enjoyable good ones!

Internet In Thailand!

by machomikemd

Internet is also widely available with internet cafes throughout Bangkok (they charge 40-50 Baht per hour for broadband connections) and other cities. All main tourist area also have enough internet facilities.

Most hotels and apartments have Wifi (Wireless internet) for their customers and Starbucks is always nearby. Dial up cards can be purchased from the 7-Eleven, for around 200 bath you get 30 hours of internet with JI Net for example. Instructions are included with the package but don't expect the connection to be fast (28k8 seems to be the norm). Also be aware that broadband is relatively new so service could be interrupted from time to time.

Hierarchy

by manice

Thai people have much respect for others. There is a hierarchy from the King at the very top to the labourers at the bottom. Everyone knows his or her position on the hierarchy tree and shows their position by way of what you could call the 'height rule'. In any social encounter the social superiors head must always be higher than the social inferiors head. The lower you stoop means you show more respect to the person you meet or are passing by.
In a school situation this is more evident and it can be quite an eye opener to watch. As a white person I am seen quite high up the hierarchy tree. This means that other teachers will stoop as they pass me even if they are much older than me. (Thai people respect their elders like we do). I do find this a bit unnerving so I tend to stoop too, thus giving them as much respect back.

Here are some social customs...

by Krystynn

Here are some social customs which I think will come in very handy when you are in Bangkok or anywhere else in Thailand. Remember, what is acceptable in Bangkok may not be in the countryside where the old ways are still prevalent and people are more conservative. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Thais do not normally shake hands when they greet one another, but instead press their palms together in a prayer like gesture called a 'wai'. Generally, a younger person wais an elder, who returns it. Watch how the Thais do it, and you will soon learn!

It is considered rude to point your foot at a person, so try to avoid doing so when sitting opposite anyone, and following the conception that the foot is a low limb; DO NOT point your foot to show anything to anyone but use your finger instead. And please AVOID placing your feet on the table while sitting.

Losing your temper, especially in public, will more than likely get you nowhere. The Thais (who are really a very mild mannered and gentle group of people) think that such displays denote poor manners, and you are more able to get what you want by keeping calm and concealing your emotions.

Do not be surprised if you are addressed by your first name: for instance, Mr. Tom or Miss Krystynn instead of by your surname. This is because Thais refer to one another in this manner, usually with the title 'Khun' (i.e. Mr, Mrs or Miss) in front. Follow the customs of the country as far as possible, and you will make more friends during your stay! :-)

When entering a Thai house, you're expected to remove your shoes. So please DON'T forget it.

Beckon waiters at any restaurants with a wave of a hand if you need to catch their attention. DO NOT clap, snap fingers, whistle or hiss at them! Such gungho behavior is considered terribly rude here in Thailand.
