Bangkok, various questions.

Jump to last reply

I've been to Bangkok eons ago and remember it vaguely. I'm treating Bangkok as a new destination for me when planning my upcoming stay there. I have travelled in hot climates, and I'm aware what it's like to be on the go in a hot climate.

I have some questions on the city.....

Which is the best area to stay in to be centrally located to the main sights?

I would like to see the following sights, but really not sure how to group them so that I'm not wasting time backtracking.


Wat Arun
Wat Pho
Wat Phra Kaew
Wat Tramit
Wat Saket
The Grand Palace
Jim Thompson House
Floating Market, not sure which one
A cruise on the river
Anamata Samakhon Throne Hall and Old Customs House (not sure if I can enter either)
Terminal 21 - not for shopping, just want to see the decor of the mall
Night Market - not sure which one
Kao Shan Road
Phra Athit Road
Chatuchak Flower Market
Clongs
The National Museum - only if time permits

Which sights should I group together? Can these sights be visited using public transport, I'd rather not take a tour than or a car and driver for sightseeing within the city.

Which floating market(s) and night market(s) are best to visit?

Which cruise company offers the best river cruise?

Realistically, how many days will I need in Bangkok to cover these sights?

I'm also interested in two day tours, one to the Bridge over the River Kwai and one to Ayutthaya. I'm a solo traveller and would rather a group tour from these sights as the cost of hiring a private guide is expensive when travelling solo. Are there any reputable tour companies that people can recommend?

Any information on Bangkok will be appreciated. Thank you.
