I have a friend who is going on holiday to Thailand in three weeks. He shall be spending four nights in the capital Bangkok, before departing further North.

Whilst in Bangkok he and his wife are interested in visiting, amongst other things:

  • The Temple Of The Emerald Buddha
  • The Night Market in Patpong
  • The Floating Market

If anyone has visited Bangkok Thailand and in particular can advise with regards to visiting the above named places as sites of interest, this would be helpful.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

This is exactly the same "question" that you asked before, which was closed. travel.stackexchange.com/questions/14939/… –  Marton Mar 28 '13 at 11:56
@Marton No its not. The question I asked before considered Bangkok, Chiang Mai & Phuket. So I have limited it to Bangkok only, and actually named specifics in this question. Not quite sure where you get that from ? –  Simon Mar 28 '13 at 11:58
@Marton Why would I ask exactly the same question as before if it had been closed ? –  Simon Mar 28 '13 at 12:02
Yes, you changed "these three parts of Thailand" to "Bangkok". I think your previous question was closed because it didn't contain an actual question. Which is true for this one as well. I might be wrong though. –  Marton Mar 28 '13 at 13:07
It's not up to other users to edit your question, and as it stands you're polling and asking for experiences - which as the faq and tour pages state, is not permitted on this Q&A site, and is better suited to a forum. I'm closing it. You can always edit it yourself and flag to reopen if you feel it now meets the faq. –  Mark Mayo Mar 28 '13 at 16:57

Bangkok has so many temples, most biggest and famous are Wat Po and Wat Arun. They are just opposite of each other along the river Chao Praya. You should take the boat along the river, as it is an interesting experience as well.

If you have ample time probably you want to visit Ayutthaya, the old capital, especially when you like buildings, palaces, foreign colonial settlements. You can take a boat for tourist, but must book in advance.

Other thing you may want to consider, is to take short cooking lesson.

You can reach Ayutthaya from Bangkok Hualamphong Station by train in 1.5h from 15 Baht in 3rd class. And yes, taking the river taxi is one of my favorite things to do in Bangkok. Especially at dusk. –  greg121 Mar 28 '13 at 13:35
@DanielBaktiar Yes they interested in temples, particularly the one housing the Emerald Buddha (which I think is near The Grand Palace), they also wish to do a boat ride on the Chao Praya river. Ayutthaya seems like a good option as well. –  Simon Mar 28 '13 at 13:49
@greg121 +1 for that..... –  Simon Mar 28 '13 at 13:50
