First time trip to Thailand

Jump to last reply

Hi,

Just joined the forum and was hoping to gain from the experience of other more seasoned travellers, with regards to my first trip to Thailand.
I'm planning to come from the UK to Bangkok in the last week of September for 7 nights, where I'm hoping to do the full 'tourist thing', as I'm told it's a great city to visit.

Is this a good time of year to visit?
Any recommendations for good hotels, as I want to have good transport links nearby for touring the city?

Finally, as a man travelling on my own in Bangkok, am I likely to get hassled a lot?

Thanks for your help :)
