    Things to do in Bangkok

    In september I will be alone during daytime for the first week as the missus has to work. I am sure there are better things to do then to stay home with the inlaws.
    So any suggestions what I could see or do?

    You've been in Thailand many times (I think). What kinds of thing are of interest?

    Norton, I have not seen so much of Bangkok so far. For tourist spots just the main temples and the national museums so I would like some advice what else is worth to go there.

    Of course I would never indulge in such immoral pastime but if I would Patpong is not such a good idea as the missus is working in Silom area.

    Odd you would know Patpong is in the Silom area if you never partake.

    Isn't it obvious? I walked past it during daytime.

    I will stay at Rangsit and Lad Prao.

    Suggest you go to Timba's restaurant. Say hello and have a bite to eat. Nice guy so you'll enjoy.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Sure, Timba's is on my list anyway.

    Meeting people for a beer came to my mind too of course though I am not sure who will be free during daytime on a weekday? Anyway, anyone willing to meet me please tell.

    Soi 7 beer garden. You could say you were raped as it wouldn't be too far from the truth.

    Go to the theater and watch a movie in a gold class chair.

    And apart from the Grand Palace and the Navy Museum is about all Bangkok has to offer.

    See you at Soi 7.

    Navy museum I really consider and maybe grand palace too as the first time I have been there wife number one lost interest after the temple and got hungry.

    Think I will be ready for lunch at soi 7 then. What kind of beer do they have there?

    Timber's is best in the evening when the wine flows free and the dead cow prances onto your plate.
