    1 day and 2 nights in Bangkok

    Friends, need your advice here:

    Me and my wife are in Bangkok from Saturday evening (6PM) to Monday morning (10AM), and we are staying at Park Plaza, Sukhumvit Soi 18. We've been to BKK before and covered the tourist trails - temples, night market etc.

    Some of the things that we are contemplating -

    1. Romantic evening - what would be a good option, without breaking the bank?
    2. Ice bar - would you recommend - if so then which one (with prices please), or should we do it at Pattaya?
    3. Ladyboy Bar - just want to see, so where would the 'girls' be not pushy and are a treat to the eyes?
    4. Is Tiger Temple & River Kwai worth a day trip? If so, where do we get to book the best deal?
    5. Where can I park my wife for a 3-4 hour SPA close to where we're staying (nice yet inexpensive), for obvious reasons?

    Look forward to your help and advice.

    Cheers.

    You might consider linking numbers 1 & 5 making 2, 3& 4 irrelevant

    River Kwai is excellent, as Ned says make sure you see the cemtaries.

    Tiger Temple is a sham!

    Leave the wife at a spa all day. Ask the hotel staff the location a good one that is close. Jump in a Taxi and take a trip to some of the bars listed on this site. I will leave it to you, which ones and for what reasons. My advice to every male that comes to Thailand is to spend and least a few hours in the local bars in Bangkok to get a taste (or more) of what you can only dream about in many other countrys.

    Have you been to Jim Thompson's House not far from Siam Square and Paragon shopping mall? Worth while and good for about 2 hours. River Kwai in Kanchanaburi is a worthwhile trip. It's a full day trip though. Take the train there. Take a longtail on the river for a different perspective. Stop at the Phra Pathom Chedi in Nakhon Pathom on the way to or from Kanchanaburi.

    DEPART BANGKOK FOR KANCHANABURI

    - STOP AT NAKHON PATHOM
    - PHRA PATHOM CHEDI
    - PHRA PHUTTHAMONTHON

    - ARRIVE KANCHANABURI (CONSIDER TAKING A LONG TAIL BOAT THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO DEATH BRIDGE, CHUNG KAI ALLIED WAR MUSEUM, WAT THAM KHAO PUN, AND JEATH WAR MUSEUM).

    - DEATH RAILWAY BRIDGE
    - KANCHANABURI ALLIED WAR CEMETARY
    - CHUNG KAI ALLIED WAR CEMETARY
    - WAT THAM KHAO PUN
    (NEED TO DETERMINE IF THERE IS ANY TRANSPORTATION AVAILABLE TO GET THERE AFTER TAKING THE FERRY BOAT FROM THE PIER AT THE WEST END OF LAK MEUANG ROAD).
    - JEATH WAR MUSEUM

    - WAT THAM SEUA & WAT THAM KHAO NOI, 15 KM SOUTH EAST OF KANCHANABURI
    - ERAWAN NATIONAL PARK WATERFALLS

    Just asking

    Thanks mate for the information on Kwai...... Rather than doing it on your own, I was thinking of joining a day tour, Do you know any reliable yet inexpensive tour guides close to Sukhumvit? Thanks again.

    Fuck that for a joke.
    Why would you want to?
    Go to russia and sit in a park and drink vodka, much cheaper and an 'authentic' experience.
