A must visit
Review of Kanchanaburi (Bangkok) by littledevilxx

Advantages: A little adventure
Disadvantages: basic

Kanchanaburi is a very special place. I have been to Thailand twice for a month each time and I made sure I revisited Kanchanaburi the second time. Kanchanaburi is about 2 hours drive west of Bangkok, some people take only a day to visit on an organised t ... Read review

4 days in Bangkok in Feb 2006 through Thomas Cook
Review of General: Bangkok by alimcc21

Advantages: lots to do, friendly, good value for money, easy to get around, cultural, lovely hotels
Disadvantages: they're desperate to get your money by any means, humid, smelly

I'd heard such different things about this place before I went. A friend of my boyfriend's went for 2 weeks by herself and absolutely loved everything about it. But everyone else who had been said 3 or 4 days was more than enough. Then there was my manage ... Read review

Good review, I have been to Bangkok and am going again in October so thought I would read through some reviews and see what other people thought. I know what you mean when you say there is a big contrast between rich and poor, I thought that too. xx by daylehall
As you were on a Thomas cook package, I was expecting more detail about that aspect. The review of Bangkok in general is ok, but again, I felt there could have been a little more detail about your experiences. The city is full of surprises and I'm very interested in hearing different opinions from all different types of people. You are right when you say 4 days is not enough.......there's no way you can see and experience everything. I hope you you get the chance to go back 'under your own steam' as it were. You won't regret it ! Here's looking forward to your next Bangkok review :-) by ericisking

'Crazy Taxi' style transport
Review of Getting around in Bangkok by alimcc21

Advantages: cheap (and negotiable), always plenty to choose from, friendly drivers, good sky rail
Disadvantages: traffic and one-way systems, taxis always trying to sell you seafood, these people have never heard of 'braking distance'

The first transport I tried in Bangkok was on my first day and we took the Sky Rail from our hotel to the Weekend Market. These stations are so close together you'll never have far to walk and the one-way ticket cost only about 30p. The maps were easy t ... Read review

You should have tried the buses and the motorbike taxis. As for poverty and dirty. I am never quite sure where people get this from. Monty Don mentioned this in a recent tv programe and to be honest he way off the mark. Bangkok is one of the most modern and fascinating cities in the world. by Jarrac

Advantages: sells Euorpean Food, open 24/7

You can find typical Western Food in this Thai supermarket chain - they even sell english tea bags and nearly anything else that you could buy in a Tesco in the UK, in case you had enough of Thai Food or want a quick snack (there is a good restaurant coun ... Read review

Review of General: Bangkok by NATI

Advantages: a totally different culture
Disadvantages: can be too hot

BANGKOK INTRODUCTION I decided to visit Bangkok following recommendations from friends and family. However, as you can imagine, not everyone agreed that it was a safe place to go, particularly as I went with another female. Many family members thoug ... Read review

Bangkok and loving it
Review of General: Bangkok by daleyboy

Advantages: Wow everything and anything for sale and to do
Disadvantages: very very very bad traffic

Well where do you start? That is the same question you will ask yourself when you step out of the airport into the unrelenting heat. Taxi first, you either pay 50 baht about 70p to the taxi booth then the taxi charge on top of that OR you go upstai ... Read review
