"The People" Bangkok Favorite Tip by Gerry_Hattrick

Bangkok General: 632 reviews and 858 photos

Favorite thing: Good advice from Curt1591.
Haggle with street vendors but don't argue.
If a situation develops, escape as quickly as possible.
And remember that to the Thais, 'face' is VERY important. NEVER insult or slight their character, even jokingly.
They are beautiful people, treat them as such and you will have a wonderful stay.
And for transport, if you are brave, the motorcycle taxis are really exciting - and also quite safe.

Fondest memory: I miss the food and the lifestyle.
Sitting out at a roadside 'cafe' in Bangkok, eating noodles and soup, people watching until the sun comes up.
