UNUSUAL, COOL, RELAXING OR INTERESTING THINGS TO DO IN BANGKOK

I'm going for work. I have to arrive a few days early, and staying a few days later because I don't feel like going home before heading to Iowa for the national square dance convention (!)
  1. Def going to this shrine
  2. What should I do? Honestly there's a part of me that just wants to say "fuck it" and head to a beach resort
  3. Help. I leave in a week
  4. Hua Hin is 2.5 hrs from Bangkok. Probably closest beach resort.
