    Just remember the old proverb “man who walk thru airport turnstile sideways going to BKK”

      Yeah that’s always struck me as dumb because airports don’t have turnstiles

    Same here. Don’t miss the foot reflexology inside the Wat Po temple. The medical school that teaches it is within the grounds. $13 for 50 min

    You might want to also check out the commuter water taxis on the canals (khlongs.) Very local, very fast, and you see a side of the city from the canals that you don’t see from the street. There is a water taxi dock right behind the Jim Thompson House. There is an interesting story around Jim Thompson, and the house, now a museum, is beautiful.

    Nice article thanks for sharing! Bangkok is a place I go to a couple of time per year, and I always try to make time for a river cruise. What is your favorite thing to do in Bangkok?

    Very nice!

    I wish the water had been less rough when we were there in November. Water levels were quite high at the time, and the crossings we made on the local ferries were a bit unpleasant as a result – the boarding docks were violently rocking to the point that getting on and off the ferry was quite difficult. On board, everyone was getting wet from the water splashing over the sides. Our guide kept telling us how great some of the dinner cruises are, something we didn’t have any interest in to begin with, and could not imagine doing while there given the roughness of the water.
