Well, all international flights whether arrivals to / departures from Bangkok, Thailand will be operated at Suvarnabhumi Airport which located in Samut Prakan Province.
When you reach the airport and just before deciding on taking a cab for a trip to your hotel, ask the price first and do few survey with the price offered with few cab driver, and do negotiate the price with the cab driver before you hop on the cab.
If you're going to Bangkok to gain some experiences on backpacking, just head towards to Khao San Road, where most self-respecting backpackers will converge after arriving in the capital. The street is lined with bars which are open 24 hours a day, and you can grab a room here for about 300 Baht (RM32.00) a night for a fanned room. Besides, if u wanna get to know friends (people who travel alone or so), this would be the ideal place, as it is the main backpacker street in Bangkok.
Well, we stayed at Lamphu House for 2 nights (6 May and 7 May 09), which situated in Soi Rambutree Road, just a 5 minutes walk away from Khao San Road, and it is located in a quiet side street, which is an ideal sanctuary for those that aspire a little peace and calmness away from the busy hectic streets of the amazing Bangkok.
By the way, you may just have a walk and grab a free map at any travel agencies around Khao San / Soi Rambutree Road, as some of the tourist places are around there, i.e. Phra Sumen, Royal Grand Palace, etc.
Besides, you may join some day tour packages offered by these travel agencies too, i.e. Damnern Saduak Floating Market Half Day Tour, Ayutthaya Full Day Tour, River Kwai One Day Tour, etc.
We, joined River Kwai One Day Tour (which included elephant riding and bamboo rafting) on 7 May 09 itself and Damnern Saduak Floating Market Half Day Tour on 8 May 09.
For our last night stay (8 May 09), we shifted to HQ Hostel, which ideally located in the middle of Bangkok's city center, within a walking distance to all major attractions, and a super transport network.
9 May 09, our last day in Bangkok and we did our last minute shopping half day (frankly speaking, it wasn't enough for us) today at the Chatuchak Weekend Market where 15,000 stalls selling everything from accessories, clothes, furniture, decorative items, to pets and foods.
And, we spent some time in the city afternoon (just to find the Pratunam Market, but we failed to) before we heading to Suvarnabhumi Airport.
What’s a trip to Bangkok without shop enough? Funny huh? Yet, we enjoy our Bangkok trip! Probably we will be there again just to shop!!
