So you are going to BKK for the motorsports scene?  It's vibrant you're gonna love it.  Just go to any main intersection.

LOL

Bring your own whey powder if you can (leave clothes at home to make space, and replace when you get here).  The same powders are available as back home, just double the price (being imports).

On the other hand, Makro will supply a Kg of chicken (no bone/skin) for something like $150baht/Kg.

 

Roids are not hard to get here, legally, often over the counter.  Conversely, if you want post cycle stuff like Clomiphene  they might say "we don't sell those, you'll have to go to a fertility clinic". ....makes me wonder..... (maybe order online before you travel).

 

Can't help you regards BKK though as to me it's just one of those challenges to get through to get to the airport.  There will be thousands on here that will entirely disagree with me though and love the place.

Newbie's should all taste Sukhumvit. Try staying at the Nana or Asia Hotel's.

definitely stay on sukhumvit around asoke.  you can access all parts of bangkok from there in 30 minutes via skytrain (BTS) or subway (MRT).  english is widely spoken in the area.  and you can always ask a fellow farang some questions if you need some help.

 

i don't know of a go kart track.  there is one in phuket, just outside of patong.  there is also a 'world class' racetrack in buriram.  i saw the SBK motul series race there a couple months ago.  

 

bumrungrad hospital has a decent deal for a full health check up.  i haven't done it in a few years.  it was 10,000thb last time i did it.  took about half a day to get through it.  alot more than a blood test and an xray.  google it for more info.

For a first timer to the city, I'd suggest staying in the area known as Sukhumvit, particularly within walking distance to Asoke BTS (elevated train). This is the same area as what was suggested above as 'Terminal 21'. 

 

The area has plenty of food, bar and entertainment options (also two 'adult' areas if that's your scene), and while it does feel quite westernised its still very easy to walk off the main road and discover street food and other things that define the city. Transport around the cty is much faster than taxi, also cheap and efficient. That's why BTS access is my suggestion. There's also an intersecting underground train system called the MRT which meets up with the BTS in a few places. Lucky for you, the MRT station in this area is close to Asoke BTS. 

Loads of affordable hotels in Asoke, as stated above BTS (Train) and MRT (Subway) are here, I am staying in the Rembrandt Towers serviced apartments short term rates are reasonable.........just had a Cycle Motorsports week in Terminal 21, understand they sold over 28,000 motorcycles in that 10 day period alone..........all the new models.  :post-4641-1156694083:

I actually would avoid Sukhumvit.  There are lots of bars and restaurants but not that many actual good ones.  Sukumvit is also full of sex-tourist and sex-pats.  Having said that some people like it, and the Tong Lor and Ekamai parts of Sukumvit have some good bars and restaurants... not cheap though.  Personally, I prefer the Silom/Sathon area (I live there).  I think it has a much nicer atmosphere and also quite close to some good riverside bars and restaurants.  Several BTS stops in the area should you want to go anywhere else in the city. 

Seriously?  Silom home of the sleaziest part of BKK Patpong and gay massage.  Silom is more crowded and a much bigger rip off potential then even Nana. The claustrophobic area of BKK.

Many great restaurants Sukhumvit Soi 11 and 8.

Stay near Asoke much better.
