  • This was a good alternative to a regular night market. A little more child-friendly, but still a lot of small shops with all kinds of different to buy at a cheap price.

  • Wonderful and unexpected experience. The food here are on the pricey side but that is to be expected. Great view of the river and here's a pro tip, get food from the market by the river, they're actually decently priced. There are some wooden seats facing the river and they're usually not that crowded. Go there before sunset to avoid the crowd. Shopping there isn't the cheapest too but not crazy expensive. Some stuff there are cheap too. A must visit place for visitors and locals.
  • Great place for an evening stroll and food. The performances and shows there were good as well. People with kids can take them to the carnival and ride the ATVs. Wouldn't recommend for shopping though (if you're going there purely for that). There are better night markets in Bangkok.
  • Artificial tourist area that has nothing to do with Thailand or Bangkok, is heavily overpriced, provides a sweaty, potentially bad experience and leaves you unsatisfied or disappointed. The traffic to get there is hellish. The amount of Asian (mostly Chinese) tourist that are dumped in bus loads and force they way through the crowds not pleasant, the food mostly outrageously priced and of questionable quality. Just avoid it. If you insist on going: What to do there? Maybe a ferris wheel ride? No views and expensive. Go to a rooftop if you wanna see a grand view.
  • This is one of my favorite places to shop & eat. I usually take the boat & the views are amazing. Shopping wise, they're more like boutiques which means better quality & more $$ but worth it. The food option is awesome: from Thai, Italian, Arabic, Japanese, Korean & much more. All ages will enjoy as it even has a kids area with rides.
  • Quality small boutique stalls segmented in zones, naturally prices are higher here but you will be able to find less cookie cutter retail items. There's food and drinks and a huge Ferris wheel here too. Come in the evening when it's not so hot, but stores will start to close around 11pm. Tip: don't buy the pong pong seed though. We bought and realised it's actually poisonous so if your kids accidentally open it and taste the seed it's immediate death.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
