I am having great difficulty deciding which area to stay in Bangkok. Can't decide between Sukhumvit and the riverside. We are a couple in our 40's, the first day we will go to temples and river and the second day we will probably do shopping. We want to be close to a couple of bars (nothing seedy) and maybe night markets But we would want to see the real Bangkok. I prefer an area which is easy to get around the city. Which area would be best for us - and why?
