I am trying to see the following SITES in 4 days in strife ridden Bangkok:
Grand Palace, Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Temple of the Emerald Budha, Wat Traimit (Chinatown), Wat Arun, Wat Saket, Erawan Shrine, Khlong Lat Mayom floating Market and the following MARKETS:
Terminal 1, Chatuchak Market, Pratunam Market, Platinum Fashion Mall. Central World, Khlong Thom and Yaowarat Road (china town).
And NIGHTLIFE as follows:
Patong Street only (not going inside any bar) Soi Cowboy and NEP (likely to see ONE bar each)
My proposed itinerary and stay is as follows:
9th Jan-Thursday-Staying at Rambuttri-morning palace and nearby monuments as Wat Phra Kaew. Afternoon Khlong Thom. Evening walk down Patong. Day is complete. Can I add anything to it as I dont know the distances or time taken to see each of these.
10th Jan-Friday-Staying at Rambuttri-Morning is free. Afternoon at Wat Traimit (Chinatown),Evening at Yaowarat Road.
11th Jan-Saturday-Staying at Sukhumvit-morning at Chatuchak Market. Evening at Soi Cowboy and Nana. Afternoon is free.
12th Jan-Sunday-Staying at DMK Airport-Morning at Khlong Lat Mayom floating Market. afternoon and evening free.
Please help me fit the missing blocks to complete the puzzle. I have not yet fitted the following into my itinerary due to lack of knowledge: Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Temple of the Emerald Budha, Wat Arun, Wat Saket, Erawan Shrine, Terminal 1, Pratunam Market, Platinum Fashion Mall, Central World, Pantip Plaza.
Please divide my destinations (Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Temple of the Emerald Budha, Wat Arun, Wat Saket, Erawan Shrine, Terminal 1, Pratunam Market, Platinum Fashion Mall, Central World, Pantip Plaza) as per my locations on the FOUR DAYS of my trip and help me create this itinerary and fit the missing blocks to complete the puzzle. Also, please tell me which areas I should avoid due to the current political problem and strikes in Bangkok?
Thanks in advance.
Will appreciate if only those who know the city VERY WELL reply as I am flying shortly and there is no time for a confused dialogue.
