Bangkok's red mailboxes are found all over the city. There are also plenty of Thailand Post offices around for sending mail and packages. In tourist areas, there are post offices in the Khao San Road area (in front of Wat Bowonniwet) and at Sukhumvit Road (between Soi 4 and 6).
If you're staying in Bangkok for a longer time, you might want to make use of poste restante; that way, other people can send you mail or parcels using a post office's address. Post offices keep the letters for two months. Letters sent via poste restante must have the receiver's name on it, with the family name in underlined capital letters. If you want to pick them up near Khao San Road, it must be addressed to c/o Poste Restante, Banglamphubon Post Office, Bangkok, 10203, Thailand. If you want to pick up your mail in the Sukhumvit area, make sure mail is addressed to c/o Poste Restante, Nana Post Office, Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok, 10112, Thailand.
