I just got back from Mexico City, which was amazing, but now I want to start planning my next trip, and a friend wants to go to Bangkok. I’ve never looked into it going there much, is it a good place for going for vacation? It doesn’t look expensive to get and stay there, and I’ve heard American money goes far. Would it be hard for two American women who don’t know any Thai to get around and figure things out?
Also, she found a flight July 16-24, and usually on vacations I don’t stay in one city for that long without getting restless, are there good day trips around there? Or a good city to fly out of after going to Bangkok? It looks like there are a lot of flights to Singapore from Bangkok, and I’m also interested in going there. I know in July it will also be hot there, but I will be flying from Houston so I think it won’t be a radical change but do let me know if I’m wrong.
I know that people here have visited or lived in Bangkok and I’d be grateful for any tips.
