Two days in Bangkok

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are spending a week in Phuket and a week in Chiang Mai with two days in Bangkok in between. We are most interested in the Buddist temples and other interesting sites unique to Thai culture and history. I'm sure we'll do some shopping, but that's not really why we will be there.

I am looking for recommendations about what part of the city to stay in, and specific hotels in that area. My research makes me think we want to stay along the river somewhere - perhaps not to far from the Skytrain? But the amount of information out there is overwhelming, and much of it recommends staying in the shopping areas along Sukhumvit Road.

I lived in Bangkok for a couple years as a child (many years ago), and remember a floating market that we visited. My wife very much wants to see one, but there are a number of choices. I don't know which would be best to visit - I would prefer one that is not too touristy (if that is possible), but because we are only there two days I don't want it to be too far out of town. Is there a clear choice?

Thanks in advance - I always come to this forum for help when my travel research isn't going well.
