Traveler impressions of Bangkok
Bangkok is a huge city and there are a lot of landmarks that are a must see: grand palace, wats (budhist temples), markets,.
.. but the public transportation is very complicated. The distances are too huge to go walking, but the bus stops don't say the routes of the buses, the underground or skytrain only covers less than half of the city... so you must use taxi or tuk-tuk. Food and public transport is very cheap. Use the ferry to go to Grand Palace, and have a drink at Soi Rambuttri (next to Khao San road). Jim Thompson house is very peculiar, yet not cheap. Go to a floating market and to Ayutthaya, about one hour or two away from the city, unmissable.
I love Bangkok, SPA and shopping are very nice! But the taxi drivers are really disappointed... Though we can meet 1-2 good driver.
One of the capital city that travelers would visit. there are a variety of activity to do here such as shopping, sight seeing on Thai culture, night life, etc.
Bangkok is indeed vast and it really takes more than 5 nights to explore Bangkok. There are many attractions to go to.
Food is very tasty. There are also malls with goods of lower prices. Taxis are everywhere and also tuk tuk. We would be going back to Bangkok, definitely.
Nice place cheap shopping for clothes but the downside is many Thais don't know how to speak and understand the English language.
Places must visit: Safari world. Try to limit walking under sunshine as Bangkok is always sunny and not so good for human skin.
Despite the crowds, local people are extremely friendly and courteous. The food is sensational and very reasonable.
Travel by "Skytrain" is easy-to-use and very efficient. Shopping is one of the best in the world for both Mall comfort and street bargains.,
Bangkok need a better clean air plan to improve daily smoke from daily bus transportation to Tuk Tuk (a small tricycle motors cap).
By the third day of staying, you found your fingers nail turn black.
SE Asian jewel. Fantastic culture and people. Great fun after dark. A foodie heaven ! For the missus: shop 'til you drop.
Is a hot sunny place. Recommended to wear anything loose with not too thick material. If you are not into street stalls, Bangkok has good, clean foodcourts at shopping centers but food dishes are quite sweet though.
A city that's very "tourist orientated" if you are not local then you are bound to be over charged one way or another but still a great place to go.
I ALWAYS GO TO BANGKOK EVERY YEAR BECAUSE I ENJOY THE FOOD, SHOPPING AND PEOPLE ARE FRIENDLY. STREET FOOD IS A MUST TRY BEC IT IS CLEAN AND DELICIOUS!
what a diverse place and so big you can spend weeks and not see all. ChatuChak markets to all the different shopping and dining areas great place
I would certainly recommend visiting Wat Arun, Wat Traimin and Wat Pho with the reclining buddha. Take the expressboat over the river to get to any location easier and faster than over the road with a taxi.
If you like to see something else than temples go to the Royal barkes museum with the expressboat not too crowded and a change of scenery.
No one speaks english well, and 99% do not speak it at all. Very hot and crowded, smoky. Transportation bad, liked the train though.
Wasted a week here, nothing like the travel shows portray it. Very modern and new, but too crowded and sprawling. Glad to leave.
friendly thai people, good food, cheap shopping, massages attracts me to return every once in a while
I like the city as it is easily accessible via Skytrain and subway. Just that you need to prepare yourself to be squeezed in the Skytrain, but after awhile, you will get used to it.
Bangkok is a vibrant city that maintains the Thai culture and combines it with the advance of shopping experience (be it luxury or street goods). Wat Pho (Sleeping Buddha) is a must see place with its historical value and artistic architecture, or you can take a ride along Chao Phraya River via the piers nearby Saphan Thaksin BTS Station. The street food is great too, and if you want to, try out the food courts in the shopping malls. You can shop till you drop in Bangkok. If you like luxury goods, you can shop in Gaysorn Mall, Siam Paragorn and Central World. And if you looking for bargain, then you can always go to the night markets (Pratunam, Chatuchak and China Town).
Bangkok is a busy city... Not really relaxing. However there are a lot of things to do, see and experience!
Amazing Shopping paradise and foods. Easily accessible to most grand shopping malls and temples. Great traditional massage parlours and friendly Thai people around.
A buzzing, frenetic city. Brilliant transport around the city. Great shopping, markets and street food!
People are friendly.Nice food,easy to move with BTS Sky train and MRT and alot of good shopping mall
nice city,have manny shopping center with low price,good food,,transportation is good with sky train(BTS,MRT)
Amazing place for nightlife and shopping. The price for everything here is reasonable. Japanese food, culture and comic is developed here as well.
Bangkok is really a shopping haven. Cheap and some are good quality. Try to take BTS or MRT which is very convenient to go anywhere.
Bangkok is like a second home to me. I will always fly there every chance I get. I think this beautiful city is underrated.
It is clean, the people are friendly, they're accommodating, most of them speak and understand english, transportation is well managed and runs smoothly. Bargains are everywhere you look!
Amazing city. Everything you are looking for you can find it here, prob even things you don't know that you want just yet.
A wonderful array of activities. Do lots of research before you go so you don't miss out on anything.
I have been to Bangkok 8 times now and done completely different things every time. An ever growing and changing city that still offers a look into another time.
All your senses will come alive in the amazing city.

More about Bangkok
Bangkok is a diverse and sprawling city without a dedicated central district. Instead, the major activity follows the major roads of Sukhumvit and Silom through the length of the metropolis. Visitors to this city will have endless options for accommodations, shopping, and some of the most exciting nightlife in Southeast Asia.
Getting around Bangkok used to be tricky, but modern infrastructure changes and the use of sky trains continues to make transportation easier.
The cosmopolitan energy in Bangkok is exhilarating, but it's easy to see that this city also plays an integral role in Thai culture and history. No sooner do tourists round the corner of a brand-new skyscraper than they come face-to-face with a centuries-old temple or an eclectic open-air market. The city features many unforgettable sites such as the Temple of Dawn, the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew, which is known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Bangkok remains endlessly fascinating and surprising even to its residents. There’s much more to see and learn about Bangkok, and the interactive map on this page is a great way to continue uncovering all the important landmarks, hotels, and attractions of this vibrant city.
