I am looking at 3-4 nights in Bangkok in July with my partner and teenage son.
Any suggestions on areas to stay with easy access to transport and western eateries (Autistic son will not eat non western food!).
We are more than happy with Ibis, Holiday Inn type chains but open to alternatives too. I have booked the Rembradt many times but I am trying to keep costs down without cost to standard.
Any suggestions on what to do would also be great - we have temples, floating market on the list and it has been suggested that we do the River Kwai trip too, oh and a Tiger Temple but I know nothing of this.
We love to shop and explore cultures, happy to take our son to see ladyboys etc - we are very open minded and don't hide him from the world.
Hi , I am travelling to Bangkok from Singapore for couple of days arriving BKK on 25 th March and returning back to Dubai on 28 th 3 pm. I will reach BKK around 2 pm and expected to be out by 3 -3.30 and planning to catch a city line raillink from airport and then the bts Sky train to ploen chit to my hotel Majestic grande. Next day I am planning the Temple trips in the morning.
1.Please advice the best time and way to go to the temple? Nana to silom to takin and then river appears to be the best from the various answers in the site?
2. How long it will take to cover the temples and grand palace?
3. what else I can do on that day ? Or the temple hoping and palace itself is too much for a day?
4 any advice for the next day I e 27 th Marching Bangkok or for a short side trip? No pan to tiger temple or ayuthaya anyway, but like to go floating market if it's not just a touristy thing and possible.
5 on 28 th March , I am flying back to dubai by 3 pm flight. Being a Saturday how early I should start from sukhumvit hotel and what is the best mode of transportation to airport ? Same bts+ city lane or taxi?
I am a solo traveller.

My wife and I will be in Bangkok next week and we are planning to make a day trip to Ayuthaya on 31st Jan. We have done some research and have 3 options. Besides Ayuthaya we are hoping to include floating market and Mae Klong railway market. Option 1 - sign up for day trip with bus tour Option 2 - sign up for river cruise tour Option 3 - hire a private guide and a car We want to spend enough time in Ayuthaya and enjoy the day trip at a good pace. Thinking of Option 3 if we can get recommendation of good private guide that is good value for the price charged. Appreciate some advise and comments.
