This is one of my favorite locations:

Double decked Skytrain bridges, big road, cars, loads of people, noise, massive shopping centers on the sides... yeah, this is what I call city


P.S. I got your joke, just wasn't too sure if everyone else did
And that pic it is very nice btw

I remember my first trip to Bangkok. It seemed so exciting as if it couldn't get more exciting than that... but it only got more exciting when I actually got there (and so every other time). Bangkok has magic in it.

I would say absolutely yes. Only thing you have to keep in mind is the so-called tourist scams for which Thailand is quite famous. But since you're well travelled I'm sure this is by no means a problem for you.

Definitely yes.

I would say definitely yes. I have not been to all the same cities as you but I have been to Hong Kong, Singapore, KL and a bunch of cities in Europe... I found Bangkok not just to be a match to any of those cities but personally I find it more cosmopolitan, open-minded and simply what I would describe as "cool" factor than any other city I have been to. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that it's the most touristy city in Asia and one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) global hub for backpackers... as well as having a somewhat relaxed attitude to some social topics making it a very unique and extraordinary destination. It's not as tidy and ordered as Singapore though (then again, no other city is ).

Of course it's ok to go with a family but it's much better to go with friends.
If you still stick with your family then there are things like museums, temples (loads of them), countless restaurants, rooftop bars, shopping malls and really whatever you could imagine. It's best to check some tourist website and have a look at the relevant sightseeing sections.
