often a taxi is cheaper than any other way to travel...get a daily card for the skytrain--100B per day...

you need to tell us what you like and we can better help you but here is a list of the most popular:

jim thompson house...near to where you are staying

grand palace
v-mark palace
wat arun
wat pho
klong tour of thornburi by long tail boat
suan packard palace

you will find walking around very much is difficult because of the extreme heat and humidity...

The hotel you are staying at can call a taxi for you, BE CAREFUL to only used metered taxis, otherwise you run the risk of paying too much.

Great cheap thai food abounds, but sometimes the hole in the wall joints are alot better than the ritzier looking places. One hotel I remember that had a good restaurant was the Sheraton Grand Sukhumvit - it was called Basil, very good and nice ambiance, but a bit pricey for Thai standards. Also if you are around the Bangkok Mariott by the river (very nice hotel) there is a minimall across the way that has a very good authentic Thai restaurant at the end by the street, don't remember the name but alot of locals ate there and it was dirt cheap. If you don't mind forking over the dough, the BM runs a well known dinner cruise, just go to the hotel and inquire about costs, I think we paid $50 each but we found it to be worth it.

If you are in Bangkok during the weekend I highly recommend you go to Chatuchak Market, it can be overwhelming at first but you can find stunning deals on just about anything (don't forget to haggle).
