    That Nonthaburi pier is a very dirty filthy place with loads of rude people. I wouldn't go there but up to you.

    The cremationplace of the ex-king is something you won't see anywhere else, it's really beautifull. (bring passport if going there, it's free entrance and also open at night with nice lights).
    Can go there by boat but have to walk all around it (through overflowing toilet crap) and after it you walk back all around it again to the boats.

    I would bring them to the river dinnercruises after that. Great way to eat and see BKK in a relaxed way. Forget about chinatown but up to you of course.

    For exploring, Chatuchak market or another one ( in the weekend) or the chatuchak plantmarket on wednesday/thursday. Plus ortorkor market for some fruit/food.

    As far as I know, yes...but expect a 3-4 hour wait to get in. I was literally jaw dropped by it and unless seen in person, there's no pictures that I've seen that truly capture the details of it.

    The famous Madrid Bar is one that's great to visit....lots of history on the walls there.

    Haha DrBob - well picked it. Unfortunate but funny! A 4 hour wait? Bugger that. 15 minutes is about my max unless I am at an airport.

    Is it worth looking at from the outside?

    The Madrid bar - thats the one half way along pat pong right? Do they show the cricket? Only been there once and didn't get the feeling that they would. Molly Malones might be the go. Thanks.
    News is what someone, somewhere is trying to suppress - everything else is just advertising.

    Its a 1 minute walk from Sala Daeng BTS or a 10 min walk from Chong Nonsi BTS, hardly worth walking up the bts steps. Nice and fresh out today too

    Yes, just arrived and the weather is indeed amazing. Scratching the cricket now as Steve Smith and Marsh are out so thinking of a walk through chinatown instead. Friends fly in tomorrow.
