Throughout the years people have raved about Bangkok and the easy access to, well, everything! And it's true, you can honestly get anything you've ever desired here. To me, that was the problem. I felt like the real Thailand had left years ago and now it was just overrun with backpackers who left behind filth and trashed hostel rooms. Khao San Road, the main backpacker drag, was just plain gross. It was miserably hot, and the intense crowds of people only exaggerated the heat and stench. If you're visiting Thailand, I would suggest only scheduling a day or two in Bangkok, and then from there head to the coast or smaller cities that still have a hand on some culture.
