It's worth getting a map!
Bangkok is a pretty complicated city, so it's really worthwhile getting hold of a map. One of the best ones is given away free at the airport, so look out for a copy if you're passing through - here's the front cover of the one I picked up last year.
The best paid for map I've got is the "B&B City Streets - Bangkok" published by Berndtson & Berndtson - the main advantage over the free one is that it's a lot more hardwearing. If you do pay for a map, make sure it has all the areas you want to go to on - I've seen some maps which miss out Sukhumvit, for example.
One of the best reasons for having a map is that many "guided tours" will take you to places you could easily go yourself - and will charge well over the odds for it - and then quite likely take you via an unwanted stop at a gem store.

I dont know how to explain...
I dont know how to explain about communication in Bangkok.It's so confuse and hard to find the place if you have only their address.
The Best way i think if you 're new or came here in first time , you should use service by Taxi and told them excatly you wanna go or show the map and pay only price on meter.
And if you want to go into downtown -Sukutvit Silom weekend market , my suggestion is you should go by skytrain not expensive and dont worry about horrible traffice jam in downtown.

Should you wish to move around by yourself, equip yourself with a map for general direction. You may not know, you can be taken for a ride. Taxi go on meter and insist that it works. If meter not working, change another taxi. There are many around and price are reasonable starting at 35baht as you board. Tut-tut usually over-charged and you got to bear with air polution and heat. Sky train is their latest transport system around the city. It is convenience and inexpensive. Usually it is not crowded. I've paid 15baht for 2 stations. However,the local find it relatively expensive compare to other mood of transport. That's the reason why the sky train has yet to make significant difference to the infamous Bangkok traffic jam.
