Here is a few more tips from the community. Other travelers share their best tips on backpacking Bangkok:
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.
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 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.

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.
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!
