I have been to Bangkok several times and evrytime is a little different. However, I would like some advice on where to stay>?? I have stayed in Khao San road and also in the shopping district area (near fashion mall etc). We are onyl there two night then off to Chang Mai. Our only interests are to briefly visit MBK, head to PatPong markets for a look and also wouldnt mind finding some nice places to drink - expats, locals, backpackers whatever - mixture :) or maybe bit of both.
