    Hi Preeti,

    I was in Bangkok for 3 months. Really it was a nice n enjoyable place.:clap:clap
    There r many places to see,

    Phuket ,(Many beaches n islands in Phuket)
    Grand Palace,
    Safari world,
    Siam Ocean World
    Zoo, Butterfly Garden
    Floating Market
    Pattaya n more

    If you r the lover of shopping , bangkok will be the best place for you.

    Many shopping malls, Night markets, Indra market, Chatuja market, Each of them having nearly 3000 shops.

    Last year this time I was in Bangkok, From Noember - Feb.

    The weather is as like as India. Very hot in day times. Very few days of Dec are rainy days. So no problem with the weather.

    Hope the above information will be helpful for u:thumbsup

    Have a nice time.

    Bye

    very nice place to be there.

    you will enjoy.

    very friendly people.

    shopping - you will never want to stop.

    especially for girls - dress, accessories, gems & stones, fancy stuff, bags, dvd's, computer softwares (pirated), etc.

    for men - suits.

    you have couple of veg restaurants - near indra market (punjabi & nepali but have veg along with).

    pure veg was there in another area which am unable to recollect.

    pattaya, phuket may not be that great if you are going with kids.

    remember to drink only the great ilaneer. widely available, very tasty, not expensive, very nicely cut & presented.

    when you pass by avoid looking at thallu vandi's selling food stuff - it will be insects and all other nv stuff. our kudal will come out.

    very nice choice for a vacation.

    presently they don't charge for the visa. remember to take passport size photos for the visa on arrival. or else in the airport you can take but they charge around 20 riyals per person.

    have a great holiday.

    Hi there, I live in Bangkok. There are few Indian vegetarian restaurants. It depends on where you stay. You get Thai vegetarian dishes also. Others have answered your rest of the questions.

    Hi Chitra

    Have you been to Chiangmai/Chiangrai? If so can you suggest a reliable place to buys Thai silk and Gems. I see that there are many factory outlets offering the above. But if you have bought from any particular shop/factory please let me know.

    Dear all ILites

    I welcome all of your inputs too.


    Thank you.
