Talk:One day in Bangkok

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

For the record, this itinerary was originally largely inspired by Stickman's Tour of Bangkok, although the careful reader will note that quite a few bits and pieces have changed. I've done this loop personally around 3 times and directed friends to it about as often, so it's about time I got it in written form! Jpatokal 06:02, 22 Sep 2004 (EDT)

I note that there's no mention of "Chess". --Evan 06:46, 9 Feb 2005 (EST)
Chess...? What am I missing? Jpatokal 07:35, 9 Feb 2005 (EST)
A very dumb joke. The 1986 rock musical Chess featured a song "One Night In Bangkok" that was a minor pop hit. --Evan 10:19, 5 Dec 2005 (EST)

It's funny that "Stickman" thinks that dual pricing is a "scam". Also he's less of a guide if he doesn't know what the Democracy Monument is about. Ozymandias (talk) 17:21, 4 January 2017 (EST)

I tried going to the resturant (Baan Khanitha) mentioned but after wondering aimlessly, I have a assume the place no longer exist ... I believe the resturant has moved... see: [1] -- Noam 06 Dec, 2005

That's a surprise -- the Ruamrudee location is the original, the one in Sukhumvit is the newer one. But thanks for noting this and saving others from the trouble, I've also amended the Bangkok/Sukhumvit page. Jpatokal 22:15, 5 Dec 2005 (EST)

The transliteration for pomelo salad shouldn't have an ending "m" - maybe "som-oh!" capture the right sound better for English speakers?

Grand Palace[edit]

I think it's a bit strange the Grand Palace is skipped on this one.. shouldn't it be on any one day Bangkok itinerary? --globe-trotter 12:19, 25 January 2010 (EST)


I'm off to Bangkok later in the year and I'm wondering what I can do to help make this article a star? I'd be glad to help out. (PS I'm new to contributing so apologies if I'm going about this the wrong way) thatbelinda 10 Feb 2010

Welcome! This looks like a fairly thorough article -- revisions and improvements are always welcome, but comparing to other star itineraries, it could probably use a map to push it up to that status... not always easy to create. Please also feel free to edit the main Bangkok article, it's also inching up towards a star. - D. Guillaime 13:07, 10 February 2010 (EST)
The river boat stopped at Wat Arun before Wat Pho, and I took a ferry across from Wat Arun to Wat Pho. So I assumed that the system has changed since someone cribbed Stickman's notes. Ozymandias (talk) 14:06, 23 February 2017 (EST)

Night market?[edit]

I'd like to see a recommendation for hitting the night market for dinner before clubbing. 14:47, 4 January 2017 (EST)
