Bangkok (founded in 1782) is the capital of Thailand and easily the biggest city of the country with it's population of over 11 million people. There are plenty of accommodation options catering to different budgets. Bangkok (along with the rest of Thailand) is really backpacker-friendly and cheap for travelers. There are several areas with concentrated lodging options, like the legendary Khao San Road, which has the most hostels in Bangkok.
Bangkok is divided into 50 districts, but most places of interest (at least when it comes to sightseeing) are found in the Old City area (which is part of Rattanakosin Island). One of the notable things to go see is in the Old City is The Grand Palace which has served as the residence of Thai Kings since the 18th century (though the latest king has chosen to live elsewhere).
If you're interested in Thai Boxing, there are two stadiums in Bangkok (Ratchadamnoen Stadium and Lumphini Stadium) where you can watch matches. There are also plenty of other entertainment options, such as horse races, puppet theatre, thai dance etc. Also keep an eye out for the annual festivals, like Chinese New Year, the Songkran Festival, and the King's Birthday.
The taxis and tuktuk's (kind of a three-wheeled moped) are the most convenient options when traveling around Bangkok. However, keep your wits with you when bargaining the price, and ask the taxi drivers to use the meter (or alternatively negotiate a price that you feel comfortable paying). That being said, there is also a decent public transport system available, and the Skytrain covers most of the downtown area. There are also buses, boats, and a metro available.
Bangkok is very well known for its share of scam attempts, so remember to keep your street wits about you. If a deal seems to be almost too good to be true, it probably is.

Bansabai Hostel - Bangkok
"I was at this hostel at June 2004 for a week! To go to the center of Bangkok you will need a lot of time! It costs 200 baht for a taxi to the most interesting places!

At the night no English spoken at reception, only Thai!" … "… environment. Moreover, rooms at Bansabai are pleasantly furnished...
HI - Bangkok - Baan Thewet Hostel
Si Sao Thewet Dusit
"This hostel offers the usual discounts (50 Baht here with a HI card) and facilities associated with HI hostels. It's also the usual big institutional place HI's are - kind of ostere and impersonal with fairly unsmiling staff who seemed to think showing you to a room was an inconvenience. The dorm rooms had 10 or 12 beds, which were all bunks and rather close together. The rest of the rooms were a serious of rather hot, often windowless...

"Centaur Inn is perfect if you want to be located near Hua Lamphong train station. It lacks in atmosphere; however, the dorm is massive, so meeting new people shouldn't be a problem. The area doesn't offer much, but you will get the feeling of being in the thick of Bangkok as opposed to a tourist area. The Location Firstly and most importantly, the location on the map is wrong and the address is very misleading due to the many little...

"You'll probably either love The Overstay or hate it. It's no ordinary hostel, as the accommodation side of it definitely isn't the main focus. It's a late-night bar, a live music venue, a modern art exhibition, and a total hipster hangout ... oh, and it has some sleeping facilities upstairs. Artists will probably feel at home here; you may, however, find that on your arrival you're just surrounded by hipsters doing a bar crawl of Southeast...

Bangkok Travel Tips & Suggestions
I loved the place -- Bangkok was really the place to be and people out there are very welcoming.
I love Bangkok -- it's really a very nice city.
— Abbi Ali
I love Bangkok and Thailand.
If you are going to Ko-Samui or any way in that direction, do not take the night bus. Spend a few more Baht and take the night train. The night bus is a hell I would not wish on anyone, while the train is the fun and relaxing way to go.
There's too much pollution in Bangkok. My itinerary consisted of taking a small, two-day visit in Bangkok and straightway heading to Koh Samui by Bangkok Airways. A return ticket costs somewhere around 11000 Baht. If you are looking for a cheaper (and more thrilling) option fly to Surat Thani at a very cheap price from Bangkok (around 1500 Baht, one-way) via a local airways (I forgot the name, maybe it's Air Asia) and then take a boat from Surat Thani to Samui. Next time I travel to Thailand, I will bypass Bangkok and straightway head for Samui.
— Dr Maajed
There is now a new airport in a different location. The old airport at Don Muang is closed. Go absolutely nowhere by taxi of any form. Use the bus, sky train, ferry train, or mass transit train and your stay in Bangkok and Thailand will be safe and free from annoyance. Remember that it is the people you deal with who colour your holiday.
— Long time here
This is the best place on earth for bachelors.
Bangkok is the most exciting city in the world.
The best location to stay would be near the Pratunam area. Super place to shop, easy taxi distance away frm most places. Lumpini night market is really great for shoppers with a budget and of course, needless to say, one has to bargain.
If you don't have much luggage, go to Central Bangkok by rail. The railstation is only few minutes walk from the arrival terminal. Use the footbridge over the highway. Arriving at Hua Lumphong Rail Station, avoid the tuk tuk as they will rip you off. Taximeter is the answer.
Get the direct bus from the airport departures to Khao San road for 100 baht if that is your final destination. Most taxis will try and charge you between 500 and 700B with excuses of tolls etc. If you get a 350 baht taxi to Khao San, and you can't find the bus, take it, its a pretty good offer. I lived in Bangkok for 4 months, and any taxi ride from the centre of the city to the airport for 300 baht or less is a pretty good find.
if you stay in Banglampu, I highly recommend taking the boats to the center. It is incredibly cheap (16B) you dont need to talk to the staff (they just take their baht and move on) and it is like a 100 times quicker than any other way of getting around.
Go to the departure area when arriving at Bangkok Airport and get a cheap taxi downtown for about 150. bt. on the meter. Don't use the arrivals level taxi else you will pay abot 300 or 350 bt.
For a bit of a thrill and the quickest trip across town, take a motorcycle taxi. Just look for the orange vests. And remember to bargin - this is Thailand after all!
For getting around air-con taxis are a far better option than the (initially fun) tuk tuks. Metered taxis deliver a much cheaper fare (tuk tuks will extract as much money as they think youre good for), and you avoid the thick exhaust fumes. However by night a tuk tuk will take you around Bangkok for an hour sightseeing and it's great (less traffic and smog by night). Pay no more than 150 baht (despite the fact they may ask for 500!).
