Not too long I guess, just a couple of hours or so. I was walking around some side streets from Yowarat road but didn't take many photos.

Hi Pansori.
Did you take a boat along the chaopraya river?
Do you have some pics from the river?


I just want to know that
How did you feel when you visit Bangkok first time.
I see many westerners dislike Bangkok in the way of pollution ,traffic jam and claustrophobia pervades due to the narrow pave way with loaded of many stalls. But I also see many westerners love this city due to the vibrant and lively city.

Thank you so much.

Thank your for your interest bansatorn. I visited Bangkok in 2006 for the first time and have been there 5 times ever since. I have been on the river boat (on two separate occasions in different years). There should be some older Bangkok threads by me somewhere in this forum.

I remember I loved Bankok from the first moment I landed there 5 years ago and love it ever since. Traffic and pollution are a negative but they are too minor compared to all the good things you get to see in Bkk.

298. Soi at Silom road. This one with a number of Karaoke bars which (I would guess) target Japanese visitors


299. Siam Paragon Food Hall. For those who love eating and love Thai and other Asian foods (including Chinese) this is going to be one of the most pleasant destination in Bangkok. Those who are familiar with SE Asian style food courts probably suspect what it's all about. Those who don't know - a food court is like a massive public eatery. An equivalent of Western style fast-food South East Asian style. The difference is that instead of shitty and malnutritious burgers there you get a range of real food prepared from fresh ingredients which not only tastes hundred times better but is more nutritious and potentially much more healthy. Every major shopping center or even large supermarket in Thailand (as well As Malaysia and perhaps other SE Asian countries) have food halls like this one (albeit not all are as glitzy and cool... yet most offer excellent food for incredibly good value).


300.


301.


302. Food Hall as it looks in real-life. Very busy at most times although usually you will find a seat. The choice of food is great, the environment is super-clean and food is prepared in a few minutes. Just a great way of eating out. Especially if you're not willing to waste time and money on eating in a "real" restaurant. No need to leave tips either. I always ask myself why, oh WHY don't we have something like this in Europe? That is just a better way to eat. Every time I'm in Bangkok I get fascinated by the Thai daily lunch eating culture be it food courts or street stalls.

I meant the really raunchy areas. Of which there are many in the city.

I actually meant Khao San Road. To see Western tourists in droves get an "authentic Thai massage" on the streets is just too much.

Khao San Road is one of the most exciting locations. To me so it is.
I have stayed there only once (during my first visit) but come back every time I'm in Bangkok. There is that incredibly beautiful an atmospheric Starbucks just off Khao San Road. It is the only Starbucks in the world where I have been more than once.
