1) departure from airport: self-help tour to Bangkok “& gt; After Bangkok Airport, there are four options to go to the city: Taxi, airport bus, train and city bus, but for a new traveler carrying luggage, the latter two options are basically unnecessary to consider. Thailand’s Taxi logo is obvious. It is basically a Japanese Toyota car. Although there are taximeters on the car, it is basically necessary to negotiate the price with the driver in advance in Thailand. This is a headache for all foreign travelers. Taxi’s price from the airport to the city center is basically around 300 baht. I hereby advise travelers to take the Airport Bus. Airport buses have four routes to the urban area, namely Route AB-1, Route AB-2, Route AB-3 and Route AB-4. The departure station is just at the gate of the airport, which is similar to the Bus location of Beijing Capital Airport and is very easy to find. Fares for all routes are 100 baht per person. The departure interval is 15-20 minutes. Details of the stops along the above four routes can be found in the airport section of www.into-asia.com. Here are just a few routes that are most useful to travelers:-If you need to go directly from the airport to Bangkok’s Hualamphong Train Station, you should take Route AB-4, which is the terminal of the route. The travel time is about an hour. -If you need to go from the airport to Khao San Road (a street of famous foreign backpackers’ cheap hotels, the situation is detailed below), you should take Route AB-2, which takes about 45 minutes. Just inform the driver when getting on the bus (don’t worry about missing the stop, I bet a lot of foreigners will get off with you when they arrive). -If you need to travel from the airport to World Trade Center or Siam Square (Bangkok’s most famous high-end shopping area, business center and high-end hotel area, which is equivalent to Wangfujing or International Trade Area in Beijing), you should take Route AB-1, which takes about 45 minutes to travel. Just inform the driver when getting on the bus and arrive in about an hour. In fact, the above three areas are all must-see places for travelers in Bangkok, just depending on where you want to go first. 2) There is a wide choice of accommodation in Bangkok, but Khao San Road should be the only choice for backpackers. It is not only because there are many guesthouse in this street and the price is cheap. I thought I came here to stay mainly to feel the atmosphere of the big gathering of backpack travelers from all over the world. In this street, facing the streets of blonde foreigners, you must think you are in a western city. Hotel prices in Khao San Road range from 400 to 1200 baht, with large differences in off-season and peak seasons. Take Sawasdee Bangkok Inn, which I stayed in in July, as an example. A room with a double bed of 400 Thai baht a day has a toilet and a color TV set, but the room is small and has ordinary facilities and does not include breakfast. However, it has an open-air courtyard, which is equivalent to a bar. It can eat, have a computer to surf the Internet, and check luggage at the front desk, but it charges 20 Thai baht each time. If you want to know more about the amorous feelings of Khao San Road and the numerous hotels there, you can visit www.khaosanroad.com3) to visit Bangkok’s tourist attractions, mainly temples. For backpackers, I don’t think it is necessary to visit all the important temples, because they are mostly the same. The most important thing in Bangkok is The Grand Palace. From Khao San Road to the Grand Palace, I think it is completely within walking distance. It takes about 20 minutes. If you take a Tuk-Tuk, the fare should not exceed 30 baht. The reason for walking is that I will pass by the Thai Art Museum and the National Museum. Among them, the National Museum is worth visiting, with tickets of 30 Thai baht per person. Walk about 500 meters from the National Museum to the Grand Palace. Tickets are 200 baht per person. If you are wearing vest and shorts on that day, there is a special change room at the entrance to provide long clothes to tourists free of charge. As for other scenic spots, backpackers can refer to various travel guides and choose for themselves, which will not be mentioned here. 4) Shopping Bangkok is truly a shopping paradise in Asia, with abundant commodities and low prices. I think it is no less than Hong Kong. I highly recommend the following shopping places: a) WEEKEND MARKET AT CHATUCHAK PARK WEEKEND MARKET AT CHATUCHAK PARK WEEKEND MARKET AT CHATUCHAK PARK WEEKEND MARKET AT CHATUCHAK PARK WEEKEND MARKET AT Open on weekends (Saturday and Sunday only). It is the largest and most popular market in Southeast Asia. There are more than 9,000 shops lined up in the market. It takes almost a whole day to go through the whole market. There are so many kinds of commodities that they can only be summed up in one sentence: there are everything you can think of or can’t think of. Because it is a comprehensive market with local people as the main target, the price is also very reasonable. In recent years, foreign tourists have also come in large numbers. The transportation method to the weekend market is: from Khao San Road, take a doodle bus to Siam Center for 15 minutes, the fare is about 60 Thai baht, and then take a light rail train (Sky train) to get off Mo Chit Station, the fare is 30 Thai baht for 10 minutes. But before you go, you’d better make sure it’s Saturday and Sunday. B) MBK Center According to my observation, MBK Center should be the most popular shopping center in Bangkok, mainly selling clothing and daily necessities, but mainly selling specialty shops and stalls, which can bargain and mainly target young people. There are also Tokyu Department Store, two cinemas and many catering and entertainment facilities inside. MBK Center is diagonally opposite Siam Center. In a word, foreign tourists account for about 30% of shoppers in large shopping malls like MBK, while in China, even in Beijing, the proportion will not exceed 1% (except Xiushui Street). C) Central Central is a well-known chain of department stores in Thailand, with several in Bangkok. The grade and scale are similar to those of China’s Pacific Department Store. They are operated in a unified way and cannot bargain. Commodities are of medium grade, more suitable for Chinese tourists, and cheaper than those in China. For example, Pierre Cardin’s men’s shirt does not exceed 200 yuan RMB. There are also many large shopping centers in Bangkok, such as Siam Discovery Center, World Trade Center, Sogo, Isetan, etc. For details, please visit www.taiguoyou.com. 5) Hualamphong Train Station) Hualamphong Train Station is worth introducing alone. It is Bangkok and Thailand’s central railway station. However, it is hard for you to believe that its scale is only equivalent to that of stations at the provincial and municipal levels in China. It can even be described as crude. Compared with railway stations in major Chinese cities such as Beijing and Shanghai, it is quite different. But as far as service is concerned, this station is still good. As a backpacker, To get to Chiang Mai and Su Mei, one must start from South China Peng Railway Station. Of course, one can also choose to take a long-distance bus or a plane. However, I think the train is the most comfortable, punctual and safe. What’s more, the train to Chiang Mai and Su Mei has an overnight train. Sleeping on a sleeper can save one day’s hotel expenses and is the cheapest in cost. Khao San Road or Siam Center is not far from South China Peng Railway Station. Take Tuk-Tuk and the fare should not exceed 50 Thai baht. South China Peng Railway Station has a luggage storage office, which charges 20 Thai baht per piece per day. The railway station computer pre-sells round-trip tickets within 60 days, which is very convenient. The conductor is enthusiastic about foreign tourists and can speak English.
