Bangkok

by ssamuel29

Does anyone know if there is a coach/bus from Bangkok airport to Sukhumvit road, or suggest where we should take the bus upto.

Re: Bangkok

Yes there is, you want the AE3.

Here is a link.

It travels the whole length of Sukhumvit which is a long road so make sure you know where you are getting off. It is far cheaper than a taxi and not much slower.

Hope this assists,

fergy.

It might also depend on where your hotel is on Sukhumvit Road. If your hotel is between the Asoke Skytrain stop to the Siam area you can also take the new Airport Rail Link to one of the last 3 stops and from there take a meter taxi (only paying the meter fare) to your hotel on Sukhumvit. Airport Rail link fare is only 15 baht until the end of December. Meter taxi fare to Sukhumvit Road is around 70 baht. When you use a meter taxi in Bangkok the fare you pay is for everyone in the taxi. Right now no Airport Rail Link after midnight.

If you arrive at the airport after midnight no Airport Express Bus. Meter taxi to most places on Sukhumvit will run around 350 baht. This includes the surcharge of 50 baht, couple toll charges that you pay during the ride, plus the meter fare to your hotel. Have small bills, a 500 baht note may be too high for the taxi driver to cash.

If you chose a hotel wisely and it is not too far from the Skytrain route, and you arrive during the day or early evening, you can take the Airport Rail Link to the last stop - the Phaya Thai stop - at that stop you can switch to the Skytrain and continue to your hotel on Sukhumvit. But 2 people in a taxi and taking the Skytrain might work out to about the same price. Taxi is door to door.

During the day, up to around 6 or 7 P.M. cheapest bus into the city to Sukhumvit Road (On Nut Skytrain stop at Lotus Tesco) is only 35 baht. Bus will take at least an hour during traffic. Bus leaves from the little bus station at the airport.

Re: Bangkok

by joliefish

it's actually depends on you..if you want convenience..then go for taxi.. Bangkok's taxi is considered very cheap. for me, if i have luggages, ill definitely take taxi. i took taxi 400THB only from Airport to Soi 11(Nana Station). from Nana to Airport it only cost me 350THB. cheap.. if you have 2 people and more, i highly recommend taxi. :)

Travel Tips for Bangkok

National Flag of the Kingdom of Thailand

by xuessium

Information extracted from Flags Of The World:

The flag is called the Trairanga, meaning Tricolour.

The story goes that during the 1916 flood the king of Siam (the old name for Thailand) saw the national flag - red with a white elephant - hanging upside down. A new flag was adopted that could not be hung upside down. Initially it was a red field with two white bands, but it was claimed that on 28th September 1917, the middle stripe was changed to blue to show solidarity with the Allies during the First World War.

Although not an official interpretation of the Thai flag, the prevailing view is that the central blue stripe represents the monarchy, the two white stripes the Therevada Buddhist religion, and the outer red stripes represent the land or the nation.

Wat Pho: the amazing reclining Buddha

by jrs1234

Don't miss seeing the reclining Buddha in Wat Pho, round the corner from the Grand Palace on Chetuphon Road. It's an amazing sight - here's a detail. There's a small entry fee of 20 baht.

Wat Pho is also home to a famous Thai massage school: so you can also get a massage if you want; take a look at:

http://www.into-asia.com/bangkok/attractions/watpho.php

for much more information.

The grounds of Wat Pho have some amazing architecture, too - so don't forget to allow enough time for a wander around.

It's open from 8am to 5pm daily.

The Thai People.

by Sharrie

The Thai people - I wish I could speak Thai when I was here. There's so much to discover & understand. Most of the locals don't understand English & one has to be adventurous to venture out on your own. For me, I enjoy a trip more when I'm on my own schedule & just enjoy a sense of being. Surprises are great when one learns how to embrace them. This is one place where I'll be back for a more indepth exploration.

Don't Touch The Head!

by RoyJava

In a spiritual as well physical way the feet are the lowest part of the body. That means you better do not put your feet on a table to slouch in a chair. Also donot point your feet to people's direction around you. And Thais believe in the same context (like Indonesians), the head is regarded as the highest part of the body; the most sacred part of the body! So, refrain from touching the head, even not ruffling their hair!

That's why it is strange to see people (tourists ofcourse ...) touching the head for some luck of the famous fat Buddha statues. Mostly located in museums these images can be in parks, too. I saw locals do touch the feet, or his belly and, preferred to do the same. I really do not know where the luck will come from ... ;-)

Covering up

by clueless83

If you're planning to go to any temples, the Grand Palace in particular, make sure you bring some lightweight clothing that covers your shoulders and legs. When I went to the Grand Palace I wore light combat trousers which I was able to roll up to the knee while walking around the city and down to my ankle when in the palace. I took a sarong to wrap around my shoulders in the palace but they wouldn't let me in so I had to hire a horrible baggy shirt that made me sweat so much in my life (and just think about all those other people who have sweated in the shirt!) Gross! Ladies - bring a kaftan!!!
