How to fill a day while staying near the airport

Jump to last reply

We had booked one night at a hotel near BKK as we will be enroute to Myanmar for a 13 day tour. We arrive late to BKK and would have left early the next day to Myanmar. But our tour dates have changed to begin a day later and we have already booked flights from North America.

So we have decided to book 2 nights at the same hotel near the airport, to catch up on sleep and acclimatize ourselves. This gives us a day (Thursday) to do whatever. We could go into downtown Bangkok for the day, but we actually have 2 1/2 days in the city after our tour in Myanmar. I have been researching some other options and there are 3 places that look interesting and I think are accessible from the airport.

Amphawa Floating Market
Bang Phli (100 year old) Market and/or boat trips through the canals
Muang Boran (ancient city) - this is maybe too far?

We could hire a taxi (reasonable cost? Would he wait and take us back?) or take public transport if feasible. Are there tours that our hotel could organize? Or maybe we should go into Bangkok to get initial impressions or see something off the beaten path.

What would you do? Any suggestions are appreciated!
Cheers!
