I am traveling USA-India with my wife in late January and have an opportunity to stop in BKK for two days. This would be her first time in Bangkok. I need the advice of experts on a few points: (1) If we decide to stop, we would have flown USA-Tokyo-BKK approx 27 hours (albeit in Business Class, and including brief stops in lounges) and reach BKK at 5:30AM Saturday morning, probably getting to our hotel around 8AM-9AM. We'll have Saturday and Sunday in BKK, and must leave on Monday morning, latest by noon. Due to work situation in Chicago and a family wedding schedule in India, there is no flexibility. Question is, does a stop like this make sense? Is it possible to have some relaxing sense of the city? (The alternative would be to fly Tokyo-Delhi directly without stopping in BKK. We are in Delhi all the time, so nothing particularly attractive about that option, just that it is where the wedding is.) (2) If we do BKK, where should we base ourselves? I have SPG points and was thinking of Royal Orchid Sheraton. This will allow us a few hours on the river, which I am sure she will enjoy. However, if you think another hotel/neighborhood will provide a much better base, please let me know. (Would definitely like to avoid massage parlor scenes.) (3) If you are in mood to be even more generous with advice, I welcome ideas on which few sights/activities would be best for 1.5 days we'd have. TIA!
