Figure out the best place to stay on Khao San Road in Bangkok and where to escape when you've had enough of the mayhem. From Singapore Slings to the changes in Bejing after the 2008 Olympics, gab about it all here.

We stayed at the Train Inn right next to the train station both times we were in Bangkok.
Starting at 450baht, it's among the cheapest around.
Sterile clean.
Maid service was not optional - they came through every day and rearranged all our bags - grrrr.
Precious few travellers around.
Nearby extremely cheap food spots (ie 25 baht for a meal - only time we saw rats leave the sewer and sit under our table was during a big rain!!!)
Easy walk to Chinatown....longer but still doable walk to Platinum and Pratunum malls and Centralworld if that's what you're wanting to do.....river taxi and skytrain nearby for getting to other places....airport shuttle goes from train station too

You might want to stick on the first idea of where to stay, that might be the most ideal for you. :)

The best part about Bangkok is the street food! Practice caution but don' t be timid to try new things. I went on a sejours thailande with Beach Travellers and they showed us their favorite spots to eat.

I've been to Bangkok a lot of times already. I only go there for shopping and food, nothing else. The clothes and accessories there are crazy cheap! I feel like I want to live there and be seen fashionable everyday!
The best place I've stayed so far was in Holiday Inn, Bangkok. It was near Siam Paragon, one of the biggest malls in Asia. If you get a hotel, make sure it's around Silom so that you will have easy access to a lot of malls in Bangkok.
Also, it's nice to walk around since there is a bridge connected to various buildings and malls in Silom.

I'm very excited for you! I hope I can go back to Bangkok soon :)

Actually "SIAM" is in the center of all the big Bangkok shopping malls, Siam Paragon, Siam Center, Siam Discovery and Siam Square. Centralworld, Bangkok's largest, is just east.
