Bangkok is crazy. Jammed streets, urban sprawl, and monstrous in size. Nicole and I were only able to spend three days here so we definitely can't say we are experts. Nonetheless, we had a great time in this city.

1. Channel 7 Stadium
So so so much fun. If you do one thing in Bangkok, my vote would be to do this. Matches are held once a week on Sundays and broadcast live on Channel 7 throughout Thailand. Free admission but you have to get there early. It's crowded and noisy. One of my favorite travel experiences.
Bangkok's football club located in the heart of the city. Of course, this is not Premier League soccer, but the fans are passionate and the vibe in the stadium (and outside of it) was super fun. If you go, get there early and have a beer among the locals outside the stadium.
Nicole loves coffee shops and loved this place. She wouldn't recommend driving across the city to get there, but if you are staying nearby, it is a great spot.
Sprawling. One of the largest outdoor markets in the world. But when Nicole and I visited, we were surprised by the quality and diversity of goods and food for sale. Also, right next to Channel 7 Stadium, so perfect for a Sunday outing followed by Muy Thai.
