Massage: Anywhere. Nigth spots: Highly overrated.

If you truly mean a massage, and not a "massage", the place to go is
the massage school at Wat Po. Slightly more expensive than the
run-of-the-mill establishments, and much less expensive than the 4 and
5 star hotel spas. However, there are legitimate massage parlors all
over Bangkok.

See last Sunday's NY Times Travel section for "in" night spots.
Assuming you don't mean "night spots".

I would advise anyone new to BKK to begin at Khao-san. It is known as
the backpackers area, lots of reasonably priced hotels, boarding
houses, and plenty of bars, lots of Farangs who can give advice, and
some genuine massage parlours too, (as well as a few of the other
type!).

I would avoid Cowboy, and particularly Patpong until you have been in
BKK for a few days, as if it is clear that you have "just arrived" you
will be fair game.

BKK is a big place and you need lots of time to really get to know it.

I wouldn't advise anyone to start at Khao San. In fact, I'd suggest that
anyone who really wants to see and understand the city should avoid it at
all costs !!!

Easy to agree with this one.

I find it a pretty cozy place with beer and internet joints. The hotel scene
is truly poor. Perhaps those who spend 100 bahts for their accommodation may
find the neighbourhood decent. Location is good though. Ratanakosin,
Pahurat, Chinatown, Dusit and the river are not far away.

yeah Khao san road is a mind-job if you're new to the backpacking
scene.. I'd recommend heading there after a day or two in Bangkok... not
your first night.

It's great fun though, so highly recommended.

"I wouldn't advise anyone to start at Khao San. In fact, I'd suggest

For those who don't know, Khao San is basically a street a few blocks
long devoted to backpackers and their various needs. Khao San and its
sidestreets are full of dirt-cheap guesthouses (US$3-5 per night is
common), Internet cafes, discount travel agencies, stalls selling
jewelry, used books, pirated CDs and DVDs, and pseudo-Asian clothing
like sarongs, and inexpensive outdoor restaurant/bars that have Western
food and cheap beer and show pirated DVDs.

Since it's really cheap to stay there and hang out, a lot of travellers
spend several days there while they wait for visas or wait for a flight
out. You will meet people from all over the world (lots of Germans,
Australians, and Israelis especially), but you will rarely meet Thais
who don't work there.

I wouldn't recommend staying there or going there unless you are on an
absolute minimal budget or you want to meet other travellers. There
are far more interesting places and much better hotels, restaurants,
and bars elsewhere in Bangkok.
