Bangkok was hot, dusty, and smelly. That said, it's a great (and I mean GREAT) place to shop!
Chatuchak Weekend Market was da bomb man! I think I only walked like a tiny fraction of the entire market, but the selection was already mindboggling enough for me. :D
Bangkok also has massage parlours everywhere. The cheapest I've found was a 1 hr back, leg, and foot massage for 150 Baht.
They come in extremely handy when you've just walked the whole day and have sore and aching feet.
Beware of Patpong though. Do not go into strip bars that you can't see the inside of (i.e. have to walk up some long winding staircase to a door kind).
