Just booked a flight to Bangkok for a week. First time solo female visitor. I understand that the curfew has been lifted. So hopefully it means the extra time to and from the airport via taxi won't be needed?
Am considering either the Siam Square or Sukhumvit area for accommodations. I'm interested in street food, culture, walk-ability, not so much drinking or shopping (thought I want to wander around the Chatuchak market). Would you recommend one area over the other?
How does the city feel currently? Is there a lot of tension in the air or is it business as usual? Is either area commonly used as a gathering place for demonstrations?
Thanks so much!
