Bangkok Advice

Hi All,

I am travelling solo and will be in Bangkok from late December through to early January (9 days total) staying in Sukhumvit soi 5. I am eager to hear any suggestion for things to do/see during this time.

Also, any suggestions for NYE?

Look forward to hearing from you.

@ Spaceman20

To the right ------->please read the FAQs. This one will help:

<<FAQ What To See & Do>>

Top of the page "Things To Do" as reviewed and ranked by members is also a great tool.

For NYE you could celebrate on a Rooftop Skybar, River Cruise with Loy Nava, spend time at Asiatique a great river side location or go to CentralWorld where a street countdown happens.

You first need to do some research into what to see and do and what is actually available in Bangkok - what sites to see, day trips, where to stay, how to get around, etc. The FAQs top right corner of page will give you lots of info, and asking specific questions will also help to sort things out. That will help you begin to see a possible itinerary during your stay. It takes awhile to get through the confusion of all the info you may receive, but be specific, read posts, use the SEARCH bar to help with your questions, and you will get the answers and info you want.

Good luck with your planning.

Sukhumvit is in the heart of Bangkok. It is a business area with full of shopping malls and entertainment. The most convenient way to get around this area is the BTS skytrian. This blog will give you some idea to plan your trip thailandtravelguide-sawasdee.blogspot.com/

Hi Spaceman,

If you happen to stay @ The Amari Boulevard, you'll find the Foodland supermarket right in front. Foodland is stocked with many foodstuff you might need. Also, within this complex, there is eatery called "Took Lae Dee" which serves great Thai & Western food at unbelievable prices.

Soi 5 is connected by a sub-soi to Soi 3. At night there is a buzzing hub of night market activities in this entire neighborhood, which is predominant Middle Eastern. There are also lots of street food here as well.

The Nana BTS is just meters on your left as you reach Sukhumvit. You can use the BTS to access many parts of BKK.

Local travel agencies can set you up with a tour. They will have a selection to choose from. Usually select tour one day and leave following morning from your hotel. There are many travel agencies within walking distance from your hotel.

Since the Nana Skytrain stop is not too far from Soi 5 maybe take the time to explore near some of the other Skytrain stations. The Skytrain even meets up with the subway and Airport Rail Link.
