Enjoying one of those incredible food moments – you know the kind where all you can really do is close your eyes and savor every flavorful dimension.

Wouldn’t it be terrible to make a Bangkok attractions video and fail to properly attribute the king of fruits?

    A superb video, made with love. Many thanks, as I watched I was transported back there and could almost smell the wonderful food..
    Have you got a printable list of the 25 things which will save me making one?
    Do you have any guides on where to stay cheaply (but with aircon lol).
    I found that Bangkok is very big and unless you are staying in the right place, to spend an hour on buses is not unusual.
    I shall return in October but will be staying a couple of hours drive to the west.
    I am so glad that I read all the posts as I shall now watch 101 things to do in Bangkok.
    Thanks again

      Hello Dave, thank you for watching the video and so glad that you enjoyed it. At the moment I haven’t created any sort of printable version, though I do have plans to develop a Bangkok eBook guide in the future – so hopefully in a couple of months.

      Lub d Siam is a great hostel / flashpacker guest house that’s a little pricey, but in a great location and have very cold air-con. I’ve also heard good things about Bangkok Loft Inn, though I’ve never been there.

      Hope this helps!

    I’m surprised you left out the Baiyoke Ski Tower, on Ratchaprarop soi 3 next to Pratunam. Being the tallest building in Bangkok, with the highest observation deck at 82 floors, I expected to see it in this video. Also no nighttime attractions? Night markets abound in Bangkok, but no mention. Bangkok doesn’t shuts down when the sun goes down.

    Thank you Mark for a great video! We will be visiting in October and so looking forward to all that you have shared! Any advise on where we should be concerned about eating street food? We have travelled extensively and know that there are some places we should have avoided…

      Hi Cyndee, thank you so much for watching and great to hear you’ll be coming to Bangkok soon. I guess it sort of depends on how comfortable you feel with the street food. In general, I think the food in Bangkok is quite sanitary, but maybe avoid food that looks like it’s been sitting too long, and stick with hot fresh food to be on the safe side. I’ve never had a problem with vegetables or water in Thailand. Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions!

        Hi Cyndee, I spent February to the beginning of July in Thailand, traveling all over.
        From the northern border with Burma through Chiang Mai and Kamphen Phet to Phuket in the south and Khon Kaen in the east. I made many visits to Bangkok and stayed in the east near Bang Pli and the west near Ban Yai.
        I ate mostly street food and it was wonderful with no problems what so ever.
        I can’t wait to get back in October.

    Sam Yan Market, is another great place in Bangkok. It has many great restaurants: porridge, noodles with fish ball, Crispy Roast Pork & BBQ Pork on rice, and many dishes. Very easy to get to by MRT Sam Yan Station. Too bad that the old market is gone but many great shops are still around from the old day.

    Should have some section on Thai desserts krub. Thailand has many unique desserts with very historical background.

      Thank you for watching, and thanks for the extra suggestions. Sam Yan is a great market, I really enjoy eating in that area as well. Do you know of any good ahaan dtam sang (อาหารตามสั่ง) restaurants in that area?

      Hi Susan, thank you for watching the video and for your kind words about the site. Even though it’s 5 months away, that’s great that you already have a trip planned – and I know you’re going to enjoy all the Thai food when you’re here!

    Thanks for the video. It’s great! We’ll definitely put them on our to-do list for our November/December Bangkok trip. Hopefully we are lucky enough that the weather won’t be too hot then.

      Great to hear you’ll be coming to Bangkok soon Kennis, I think during that time it shouldn’t be too hot (relative for Bangkok of course!). Hope you have a wonderful visit and thank you very much for watching the video!
