This is a good idea if you are interested in entertainment, shopping, nightlife. The area is also a great transit hub if you don't mind talking public transit.

Pretty sure you mean Terminal 21?jerryhung wrote: ↑ +1 this
close to Forever 21 is even better
I'd say, mark all the places you want to go on Google Maps and then find somewhere central to them
FYI, taxi is DIRT cheap in Bangkok, but traffic is VERY BAD always, use GrabTaxi app
e.g. old palace (west side) to Forever 21 took 1 hour for us, but only costs $5-$10 CAD if I recall

But, yes traffic is terrible everywhere. I always prefer BTS when possible. Even the MRT gets really crowded during rush hour and it can be a 20 minute wait just to buy the fare if you haven't loaded up a smart card.
The most efficient way to get around is by Motor Taxi. You will be able to snake around parked cars at stop lights, but this certainly isn't the safest mode of transportation. It's a bit of an adventure getting on one.
