Bangkok is one of the popular tourist destinations in Asia. Flying from Singapore to Bangkok on budget airline TigerAirways takes about 2 hours. Apart from being a "shopping heaven", Bangkok has no lack of historic buildings especially its hundreds of "Wats", though only a few are notable.
Tourists in Bangkok have a wide variety of shopping experiences, from street markets or bazaars such as Pratunam market (located in the central of Bangkok), Chatuchak weekend market (about 40 mins taxi ride from central of Bangkok) to malls such as Siam Paragon (also conveniently located in Bangkok central).
Street foods such as pig's trotter can be seen almost everywhere near markets, some people never dare to try though, probably due to hygienic concerns.
Still, the best thing to do is probably Body Massage....
