There are times when people are always surprised by the size of Bangkok. Bangkok in Thailand is known as Krung Thep which can be translated into "City of Angels". There are some people trying to visit everything for a short time but the fact is that you will need more than two days to explore everything you want to check out. It seems that many people are not only aware of how many things people can do in this wonderful city. They also have a choice depending on what they want to try during their stay there.
If one of your problems with not wanting to stay long is that you have a limited budget, you might want to check out Khao San Road. Khao San Road is a place that has been developed over the years to accommodate people who don't want to spend too much on hotels and accommodations. There are many three star hotels in the area as well as other hostels. It won't be difficult to find food either because there are plenty of food stalls and restaurants in the area.
If you are in shopping malls, you can find many large shopping malls in Bangkok. Two of these malls are more popular than other shopping malls. If you want to search for designer items, you may want to visit Siam Paragon. Siam Paragon is more directed to the upper class market although there are times when people go there because it is well known. For people who want to find more deals and items within their budget, Central World is more geared towards the middle class market. If you want to get dirt cheap items, you may want to stay in Bangkok until the weekend. This will allow you to see the weekend market in Chatuchak where you will see different goods. There are times when the place is very crowded, so it's wise to make sure you keep your valuables in safe places.
If you are more visiting different historical places you cannot find them anywhere else. It might be a great idea to check out the different temples there. In fact there are many temples that will allow people to see the Buddha and indulge in the Thai landing culture. Thing, people must not forget the customs and traditions of people in Thailand. Wat Pho is well known for oblique bohan but other than that, massage is also offered. You can usually enjoy the beauty of well-preserved gardens and landscapes.
The floating market is probably something else you won't find anywhere else. Using a boat, you can only check the items that are sold by local sellers. There are cases although people find the place very noisy because of their admiration and that is why stay away from visiting the place.
