Unusual/odd sights/places/activities in Bangkok?

Recommended Posts

Can you recommend some Unusual/odd sights/places/activities in Bangkok?

For example taking a bicycle tour in Bangkok was quite fun.

 

I've been in Bangkok quite a few times but mostly been to the main things like temples, river market, MBK and so on.

What are some lesser known places/sights/activities?

Sometimes I'd just pick a BTS or MRT stop, get off, and walk around for a while to see what I could see.  I didn't end up doing enough of this, unfortunately.

Agreed, even a bus to the lesser known malls...like Happyland or Pinklao....

I always liked wandering around the old Chinatown area, Yowarat/Pahurat and that neck of the woods.  I like window shopping and seeing the various specialty areas - guns, tools and machinery, antique furniture.   There is or was a large cloth market and a lot of Indian people.  I've walked down there or to Sanam Luang a time or two from the Pratunam area, maybe 12 km round trip.  Or take a bus halfway to get to the interesting parts.

 

Used to be a "hotel" down that way near some government buildings where one could get a BJ and a lay for 90 Baht, no room charge.  But the exchange rate then was only 20 Baht to the dollar.  $4.50 USD!  I never went there at night, so maybe that was the happy hour pricing.

Rent a 40 Baht bicycle on Koh Kret.

Have lunch at one of the small restaurants.

The market is open only on weekends.

 

Visit Bang kachao market. The 'floating' bit doesn't really exist.

Best to get the small boat across at Khlong Toey, and rent a bicycle.

 

Stop off at Erawan Shrine (giant elephants) on the way to Pak Nam wet market. Enjoy the cheap ferry ride across the river and back.

 

Discover new Riverside restaurants up and down the river. River Tree House, and Dave's Cafe are two of my favourites, but there are so many.
