    Two days in Bangkok? What to see often depends on where you are staying, but if you are at all near the Khao San Road/Sanam Luang area, have a look at the National Museum and catch a ferry boat across the river to Wat Arun. Wat Phra Kaeo and Wat Pho and a few other interesting places are within walking distance of that area too.

    Also, depending on where you are staying, stop by a large shopping mall and check out the food courts. Cheap, fun, and pretty good, particularly if you are looking to dip into local food for a few meals. MBK comes to mind but there are countless others.

    If you are only in BKK/Thailand for a few days, get a Thai traditional (yoga) massage. Two hours is best. Have fun.

    No shortage of traditional thai massage places in the Sukhumvit area. Jump on the sky train and check out the MBK shopping center. You can get there easiest from the National Stadium stop, but the Siam Square stop will work too. There are good traditional handicrafts on the sixth floor, if I remember correctly, as well as loads of great places to eat throughout the center and surrounding area. This also puts you within walking distance of Jim Thompson's house, which is worth a look if you are interested in history and architecture.

    From the Sukhumvit area, you can also head up towards Phetburi road (first major road to the north) and catch a canal boat down towards the Sanam Luang area for the museums and temples I mentioned above. Have fun.
