Wouldn't agree. Bangkok is a must do for a first time or relatively new tourist, plenty to do and see.

Always used to spend 2-3 nights there when I came into Thailand in my early days, then later was travelling straight through to Pattaya.

Even now, living in Pattaya, I like to go for a couple of nights in Bangkok, see the old haunts, have a night out.

Variety, spice of life and all that.

 

I used to always allow 3 nights in Bangkok at the end of my trips. You're correct. It is an amazing city. You can spend a couple of days just going to the sights on the river.

Anyone, on their first trip to Thailand, who doesn't spend 2-3 days in Bangkok is missing out on a, truly, memorable experience. I lot has changed there in recent years(some say better-I say worse) but a 1st timer wouldn't know that. 

That grand ol' shithole Nana Hotel is a must for a first timer. It still holds a little of its seedy charm. Not like a few years+ ago but.......   Ahh, I hate change "for the better".

I agree but if you miss it the first time do go the next.

 

If you do go, during the day, go to the river and see the temples and the burial tombs and such. Nana and soi Cowboy at night. I have still never been to Patpong. Something for the bucket list.

Stay away from Beach Road after 10 PM because of aggressive lady boys and thugs, watch out for pick pockets on the bart bus and walking street at night do not start ringing the bell for ladies drinks like I do,lol..the ice in your mixed drink give you the shits.

Suggest you make friends with the mamasan ASAP in the Ago go bars. Have A good time stay away from fights.

Not wishing to get too involved in this discussion But in my 8 trips to Thailand I spent only 2 days in Bangkok on my very first visit. Not being a person that finds buildings much more than someplace to get out of the rain I found it boring in the extreme and having then gone to Pattaya I have never since set foot in Bangkok in the 2 years total I have spent in Thailand. Bangkok may be a great city for some but for me it's too big and so much dirtier than I like and the traffic makes it a terrible place to get around.

If you want to do other things while in town I'd recommend The Sanctuary of Truth as the number one touristy thing to visit.

The Pattaya area of Thailand’s eastern seaboard is host to a beguiling range of attractions. The range includes anything from ancient Thai traditions to modern adventures. You can find the simple pleasures of the nation’s most lively party street or be humbled by unique religious treasures.

Explore nature, art, science and culture in ways you would never have imagined. Enjoy the raw beauty of the rainforest canopy or the glitz and glamour of the cabaret stage.

Khao Pattaya View Point on Pratumnak Hill is the best viewpoint in the region and the place to visit day or night to get that classic shot of Pattaya’s sweeping, crescent bay.

Pattaya is home to a choice of outstanding water parks, including the largest in all of Thailand, with dozens of slides and rides between them.

The so-called “Big Buddha” certainly deserves its name, being the biggest in the region at 18 metres in height. Positioned nearly 100 metres above sea level, it watches over Pattaya and Jomtien Beaches from its position on the hill dividing the two.
