To be honest, the Victoria Monument was just average. It is an important part of Thai history, but when you go over there there is nothing but cars and buses going around in the traffic circle, and tuk tuk and motorcycle taxis hounding you. What is amazing about the monument are the street food vendors on the side streets close by. But the monument itself is great is you just want to ride past for a glimpse of Bangkok history.

Whenever I stay at the Varada Place down the street I always go to this mall. On the first floor they have food stands, restaurants, kFC, Samsung phone store, Acer, everything. On the third floor they have a bank, clothing store, and pharmacy store. They even have a grocery store western union on the ground floor and one at Bangkok bank. Also, there are multiple ATMs on the outside when you first walk up to the mall's front entrance and they are safe to use. If you're black in thailand everything is ok because you can comfortably walk around the mall without anybody looking at you crazy. Sometimes in the evenings they serve street food in the front and oftentimes have ceremonies. There is also a 7-11 across the street. They have tuks tuks and those red baht buses in the mall parking lot waiting 24/7 willing to pick up anyone who need a ride somewhere. Cool place to start your Chiang Mai adventure.

This is definitely the best plaza in Bangkok if you want to buy quality electronics for a cheap price but beware some of the independent shops sell knockoffs, which are not that bad because they are of quality, but there are many legit companies that sell their computers, tablets, cameras there also such as Acer and Samsung. The beauty about this place is that you can bargain the price down some so you do not pay too much. Go early in the morning when the crowds are at a minimum, any other time expect a large crowd!

I stayed in a hostel nearby this tower for several weeks and would walk past the hotel daily. This building is very tall and attractive and there are shuttle buses that will pick up and drop off at the hotel door. Around the corner is, what seems like, a 24-hour market selling clothes, and if you go down a bit you will see street food stalls. Also, this hotel is right around the corner from the Ratchararop BTS subway station in Ratchathewi, so all you need to do is get off the train turn right into that alleyway past those food vendors (the second stand on the right is really good), continue past those gates, make that left then right and the hotel is right there. Very high class from what I have seen. The other 'hotels' in the area, thumbs down.

Everything you can think of under the sun is sold here. From hand bags to clothing for affordable prices too. There will be large crowds during the daytime and taxi drivers stopping you on the streets asking if you need a ride, ignore them. The best times to go is early in the morning when they first open up when crowds are at minimum and the desperate taxi drivers surrounding the place are still somewhat 'sleepy'.
