      6-days to play

      Bangkok 22 hours ago

      We're a ~40-ish couple, I've traveled a lot around the globe. I've never been outside of the airport in Thailand. We have 6 full days in Bangkok (maybe 5 1/2 since we arrive very late and need some rest after 3 flights from US). I've checked many of the major travel sites (TA, LP, T&L, VisitThailand, etc), the forums here, the itinerary page here, etc. I've found a few recommended must-do's: Ayutthya, Chatuchak Weekend Market, Grand Palace, reclining Buddha/Wat Pho, floating market, Chinatown, Patpong or Suan Luum Night Bazar, and we want to do a 1/2 day cooking school (I see a lot of recommendations on this too). Now it's time to start to put it all together - an itinerary with places to stay, transportation, etc. I want to come up with a general itinerary (even restaurants though we will work with HappyCow on this as we'll both be eating vegetarian). I saw "HOT! HOT! HOT! This was BANGKOK!" - Bangkok by balhannah and I'm even more inspired to plan this better than my previous trips to other places. The trip is about 10 days away (I booked just a few days ago). We love to have local experiences when/where possible rather than just tourist stuff but I realize our time is short in Bangkok. Our trip is in early October so I believe it's not bad as far as weather is concerned.

      First, from the airport, do you recommend taxi, Uber, train?
      Next, what parts of the city should I look at for hotels? I will figure out the hotel from there as my searching is complex with various variables. However, I welcome recommendations.
      Is tuk tuk/train the best way to travel around the city?
      Day 1 (Thursday) should be something light and easy since we arrive at midnight the night before.
      Day 2 (Friday) - Buddha?
      Day 3 (Saturday) - weekend market?
      Day 4 (Sunday) - other weekend market (floating?)
      Day 5 (Monday) - cooking class +
      Day 6 (Tuesday) -
      Day 7 - go home :( airport via Uber?

      I know there's a lot here. I welcome any and all thoughts including a single tip all the way through suggested itineraries. I'm grateful for your time - thank you.

      Transfer between BKK and DMK

      Bangkok Sep 10, 2016 at 12:19 PM

      Would I have enough time to transfer between airports if my flight into BKK lands at 05:45 and my flight out of DMK is at 10:50. I know that deplaning, the queues at immigration are a lottery as I have flown into BKK on numerous occasions, it is really the transfer that I need advice on as I've not done this part before.

      Many thanks,

      Short Term Rental in Bangkok

      Bangkok Aug 27, 2016 at 3:51 AM

      Hello Friends

      My wife and I are planning to go to Thailand in Nov 2016 for 2 months.
      I was looking at short term rentals and came across a range of rental quotes.
      We want a 2 BR condo or apartment in a locality with easy access to transportation
      We are not looking for deluxe cottages, but something clean & wholesome, with amenities
      In a complex called Metro Park, I saw a 2 BR unit for about 30,000 Bahts a month
      I dont know if the price is right or if Pasi-Jaroen District of Bangkok is Pricey
      What is a reasonable rent for 1-2 BR apartment, with Kitchen, Gym, WiFi, Laundry etc
      Which are some of the moderate sections of Bangkok that are well connected
      I prefer to live in areas that has local flavor but which offers all modern amenities
      Thanks in advance for your suggestions and help

      Visiting Damnoen Saduak

      by DianIU Online Now Aug 10, 2005 at 2:08 AM


      I'm a new member at Virtual Tourist..
      I have a plan to visit Bangkok & surrounding areas..

      Is it easy to visit Damnoen Saduak by ourselves taking a bus instead of taking an organized tour?

      I've heard that to go to Damnoen Saduak we can take Bus No. 78 from Bangkok Southern Bus Terminal.

      Is there anyone who can help me giving the information about ticket price from Bangkok to Damnoen Saduak?

      My plan is going to Damnoen Saduak early in the morning and at noon back to Bangkok to go to Chatuchak

      Thanks a lot before
