Much vehicle exhaust (e.g. SO2) is actually particulate in nature for reasons, as a non-chemist, I'm not 100% au fait on...(except e.g. CO, O3). So masks _will_ actually help to some extent...

It should be noted that the vast majority of the world's population live in polluted cities...and I don't think BKK is especially bad on the scale of things...If OP is _that_ concerned about pollution, will severely limit travels outside NA and Europe.
