Bangkok--what do you like or dislike about it?

Jump to last reply

Your candid thought will help me to determine how much time we should devote to the city. Incidentally, we would be using it as an international flight base rather than as a destination on its own.

I know some people here absolutely love Bangkok, but I also have read that many love it because of the fancy hotels and fancy restaurants and the great shopping. We are not super fancy hotel people or super fancy restaurant people, and we are not shoppers. Plus, we are too old to be looking for nightlife.

I am just trying to get a handle on whether or not it is a city we'd like or dislike and how much time to plan there. We have not visited a lot of Asia so don't have lots of comparisons. If it helps, in Vietnam we preferred Hanoi to Saigon. In India we prefer Mumbai (in fact, were very pleasantly surprised) to Delhi. Kathmandu was so-so, and the air pollution was incredible.

Thank you.
