    Hi
    I would answer this
    1. Cheap good tailors near hotel; is Patrick good name?
    - Actually many good tailors it all around Sukhumvit area :)
    2. fairly price good seafood/tomyum?
    - Depeneds on what type of restaurants or where you're going.
    3. good massage place?
    - It's hard to say cuz I've never massage there, would recommend Wat Pho.
    4. day sight seeing? Is floating market a good choice to go?
    - Visit temples for better like Wat phra kaeo and The grand palace :), Also near Chinatown.
    5. shopping paradise?
    - it's easy to take BTS to Mochit Station and Shop at Jatujak market (open only weekend) or walk through Central World to Platinum and every the mall are good for shopping aswell.
    6. Night life hangouts? Nana plaza or soi cowboy
    - For me I like Khaosan Road more.
    (:

    Hi Rini Rabbit, thanks for your reply.

    Just a curiosity, are you local thai residing in Bangkok?

    By the way, Ive heard about Chatucak which size is so huge to cover in one day. I'd prefer to go floating market instead. Will skip temple visit too as its not our main interest.

    You mentioned about Khaosan Road, may i know what can we find there? Anything bit layback is fine with us, just to chill and relax.

    Regards

    "Anything bit layback is fine with us, just to chill and relax."

    No Nana, no Cowboy, no Khao San Road. These are all extreme places.

    Perhaps the artist bars on Soi 33. They are more laid back - still naughty though.

    It really depends on whether or not you wish to hang out at a place that caters to foreigners or not.

    I live in Thailand. I am an expat. I don't spend a lot of time in Bangkok, but if you live here, you have to go there sometimes for visa related stuff and I'm a dancer, so I go there periodically to dance.
