      6-days to play

      Bangkok Sep 25, 2016 at 5:11 AM

      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.

    • Are there more backpackers in Sukhumvit area or Khao san? Any bar crawls Bangkok?

      Bangkok Oct 13, 2016 at 2:03 AM

      Hi guys,

      I've booked a flight to Bangkok mid Jan 2017 to start a 3 month long trip to SE Asia visiting Thailand, Cambodia and Laos.

      It's my first time backpacking and I am travelling alone. I have been searching the internet for Facebook groups and forums where I can meet other backpackers to chat with before I leave. What is the best way to meet other backpackers in Bangkok? I can't really afford a planned tour with the big companies and would prefer my freedom. What are the best bars / hostels to meet other backpackers in Bangkok who are solo? Are there more backpackers in Sukhumvit area or Khao san? Is there any bar crawls I go on to get chatting to people? I've came across a website which offers inductions in Bangkok but to meet people on the go..

      Thank in advance for any help :-))

      Udon's Chao Pu Ya Temple's Dragon Dance

      by somsakmah Online Now Oct 3, 2015 at 11:39 PM

      Udon Thani's Chao Pu Ya Temple holds a "golden dragon dance" on Dec 1st and Dec 5th every year. Sources from Internet will mention that it is held at both the temple ground and at Thung Si Mueang, and some will say the parade will travel from them temple to Thung Si Mueang and vice versa. That's all. Has anyone ever been to see this dragon dance? Does anyone has more details as to when and where, as in what time at exactly what place? The date and place may be different on both dates. This is to help me plan which hotel to book during this festival.

      I am planning to travel from Bangkok to Vientiane via Udon Thani, taking a flight from BKK to UT then the bus to VT. The flight arrives at 8.10 in the morning. I have a choice of going straight from the airport to to the UT- Vientiane bus and move on, or stay in UT for a day and travel to VT the next day. Is there much to see in Udon Thani? From this link it looks like it's worth it. What do you think?

      just wondering if anyone has crossed into Laos by flying into UT, and crossing the friendship bridge. also am wondering, if I arrive in this town on a flight from AirAsia instead of Thai International, if I'll be able to get the bus across...or if I will be stuck in the town. (I understand that the buses correspond with the Thai Air's flights.

      Any advice? Thanks in advance.
