Went to Bangkok with Ken and friends on 30 June 2008. They were there attending a 2 days hair dressing course.
We stayed at Amari Watergate Hotel, nice 4* hotel and well located in busy and noisy downtown. At night we went drinking at RCA, Bed Supper Club, Hyatt Hotel and a local club Songsalueng at Thonglor 21, Sukhumvit 55. Bed was nice but need to produce passport. For guys covert charge is 600 bahts, ladies are free.
Ken and friends went to Pattaya after the course and I moved into Metropolitan Hotel next to Banyan Tree. It is a nice and quiet hotel located at business district. The room is very big and the service is excellent.
Went for a one day trip to Tiger Temple which was amazing to see so many tigers in such a close proximity. So glad to be able to take photos with the tigers.
Tried to book for a dinner at Sky Bar on 64 storey of State Tower but it was fully booked from Thursday till Sunday. So settled with Breeze on 52 storey of the same building. We sat at the open area of the restaurant. In my opinion, it is more beautiful than Sky Bar and it serves Asian food too. After dinner we moved up to Distil Bar on 64 storey to drink.
I think it is a better option to dine at Breeze and drink at Distil Bar later than dinning and drinking at Sky Bar.
On the whole it was a great trip.
Very nice Chicken Rice stall at Petchburi Road opposite Pratunam Complex. Open from 11am. Must try. Saw people carrying guide books there.
Highly recommended Zanotti Italian Restaurant at Sala Daeng Rd turned out to be a so so place in my opinion. It is cramped, my steak was disappointing. I will rate it at 6 out of 10.
在Sala Daeng出名的Zanotti 義大利餐馆。结果有点失望。
A simple local restaurant which is nice and cheap but have to queue.
Near Somtam restaurant. Another good restaurant with nice Thai food.
Siam Square 不错的泰国餐馆。
At Metropolitan Hotel. I like the idea of projecting a clock onto the wall
River Kwai Bridge

When in Bangkok, must go to State Tower at night. might go Breeze on 52 storey for dinner then drink at Distil Bar or Sky Bar on On 64 storey. Night view of Bangkok is fantastic.
在曼谷，一定要去State Tower 看夜景。先去52楼的Breeze 吃饭，再去64楼 的Sky Bar 喝酒看夜景。
I was not allowed to get into the Palace as I was in shorts. Forced to buy a pair of paints at 100 bahts (S$4) to get in. And I like the paints,
