Sue, go to the floating market. I don't know about you, but if you like taking photographs, it is well worth a trip. There are some tired, ingrained and negative views about SEA from some. Plough your own furrow!!! There's plenty to do in BKK, plenty to see. I always found that taking a wander and seeing where it took me was always more fun than over-planning. Don't let others put you off. Enjoy your stay there!!!stroodsue wrote: ↑Sun Dec 29, 2019 3:00 amOur trips will be day to day as hotel booked for the week.BR549 wrote: ↑Sun Dec 29, 2019 2:37 am Wat Po is worth your while for sure.
I think comparing Angkor Wat to Bangkok is like comparing an apple to a piece of fried chicken.
The reclining Buddha is spectacular.
I guess you are a female.
I would of suggested you spend 4 days in Chiang Mai.
I have spent a lot of time in Thailand top to bottom and Bangkok is my least favorite by far.
That said, My Thai lady friend from Koh Samui loved to shop in Bangkok.
It is a lot easier to tell you things NOT to do.
Don't go to the floating market would be top of my list of touristy things.
Why NOT to go to The Floating Market?

a very great inexpensive way to spend a afternoon or whole day away from the heat and tourists
stop at Wat Arun
Wat Pho ( Reclining Buddha ) is worth a visit, as is the Erawan Shrine on PLoenchit road
Chatuchak on the weekends is a must, also a walk around China town
At night see what the chatter is all about and visit Nana plaza an than walk up Sukumvit to Soi cowboy
Tons of places to shop, but as ur heading to Cambodia, dont buy much as i assume ur flying home out of bangkok, so shop on the way back
When ur hungry, stop and eat at any of the numerous street food stalls
For a relaxing evening of good international and Thai food varieties, plus loads of drink choices, go to W District night market at Phra Khanong BTS, take exit 3. It's listed on Google Maps.
This. I went with Mrs Cargo earlier this year. She picked up a lot of clothes and a great leather handbag that she reckoned were well priced compared to PP (she's khmer). Out of interest, check out the section where they sell pets and all the cutie dogs/cats etc that the thais love. We found it a bit hard to find as it's a bit hidden away at the back but just ask around and/or check out the map on their website.monomial wrote: ↑Sat Dec 28, 2019 9:14 pm BTW, Bang Sue is just a stop away from Chatuchak market. If you are there over the weekend, Chatuchak Weekend Market can be an interesting diversion, and you can get your picture there next to the sign at the same time. Parts of Chatuchak are also open on Wednesdays.

When you get that photo taken , dress like a respectable lady. You don't want to get thousands of phone calls from guys thinking they can Bang Sue.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
Good reason to visit the floating market.
To see the puppy chilling out in the refrigerator.
To the eternal traveller to the KOW, the temples in Thailand look more colorful, less like copies of the ruins of Angkor.
