Shop at

EmQuartier for luxury, CentralWorld for everything, Siam Paragon – also for everything and MBK to shop and play video games.

The mall arcades are HUGE.

Party at

Onyx Nightclub, Sugar Club and Levels Lounge. Also Hookah lounges are great.

Don’t bother going anywhere else and avoid Khao San Road – it’s disgusting, dirty and full of annoying backpackers who don’t have manners. V sloppy.

A couple things about Bangkok to be prepared for…

It’s dirty and smelly. The sky is forever grey in Bangkok. The pollution is out of control at this point. I now understand the face masks.

The traffic.

If you can imagine LA traffic x 10 –  that is what Bangkok traffic is. I got out of the Uber and started walking because it got to the point to where walking was the fastest transportation option.

Other than that – you can keep yourself busy with adventures around this bustling city. Hope you enjoy some of my favorite places. 🙂
