Tips On Visiting Bangkok

We've been talking a lot about Thailand. Bangkok in particular because it's so different from where we live and places we've been. We took some virtual tours and saw things we hadn't previously known about the city, and it really made us what to visit. I went looking to some other great travel blogs for tips from those who've been there, some more than once.

I appreciate people who are honest, and Nomadic Matt is one of the most honest bloggers out there. His post here lets you know that he wasn't the biggest fan of Bangkok when he first visited. Perhaps it's easy to love or hate, but it could be that for some it's an acquired taste. He gives you his 3- to 5-day itinerary, now that he has learned to enjoy the city and all it has to offer.

I'm always happy when people include pricing for things and also give in-depth descriptions for places along with tips. Nerd Nomads also give a 3-day itinerary, and include a lot of background, so you can decide what's right for you. Not everything is cheap, but food and lodging can be extremely affordable, so maybe splurge a little on the things that sound awesome to you.

There are a lot of different neighborhoods in Bangkok, just like with all major cities. Alex In Wanderland has explored many and Silom and Sathorn looked very modern and interesting to me, plus this was much different than everyone else's take on Bangkok that I had to include it. I didn't even know spaces like this were things you could find in Thailand, so I thought you'd like to see a totally different side as well. Maybe it'll encourage you to stay a few more days when you visit.

Only have a short time in the city? The folks from Full Suitcase only had a 12-hour layover and did the city a whole different way than everyone else here. They hired a private driver, so they didn't have to worry about their bags, and could do as much as possible in the short time they had. While most of us will have more time than this, hiring a driver is not super expensive and might be something you splurge on for one of your days for your family, in order to save time for other things later.

I used to love buying travel guidebooks, but they are usually too big and bulky to take along with me. Two Wandering Soles gives the best of several guidebooks to one easily digestible blog post. They include important info, weather, common words and how to pronounce them, and things to see and do and what to eat. 

I hope you enjoyed learning about some new blogs and this help in planning your trip to Bangkok. What do you most look forward to on a trip to Thailand?
