There are so many luxury hotels in Bangkok that prices are very competitive and staying in one of those fantastic places won’t be as expensive as you might think. I could have easily made a list op top ten hotels in Bangkok, but I chose to write about the 4 places I recently stayed in the two best areas to stay in Bangkok.
Looking for a luxury hotel in Bangkok? Ever stayed in the W Hotel in Bangkok? Ever even stayed in a W Hotel somewhere around the world? It was my first time and like all first times they are hard to forget.
The Sofitel So Bangkok only opened in 2012. A fashionable and trendy hotel, located at the beginning of Sathorn Road in front of Lumpini Park, Bangkok’s largest green area. So Sofitel is all about art and style; chic but yet playful. It was the famous French designer Christian Lacroix who designed the hotel’s interior, the staff uniforms and the executive lounge.
In the last couple years I have visited ‘The Rock’ many times and it is great you guys are all asking me about this lovely little island. In this article I will explain how to get to Koh Tao in the most convenient way. Actually it is pretty straightforward, there is only one way to get to the island and that is taking a boat to Koh Tao, but from where do you take the boat? There is no airport for those people who are still not aware of that! ;)
By the time I got back to Bangkok last month I was in serious need of relaxation, and I was happy to be invited at one of the coolest boutique hotels in Bangkok: the Siam at Siam Design Hotel. It is one of Bangkok’s oldest family-owned hotels and lately completely refurbished. Siam at Siam Design Hotel is a boutique hotel with a contemporary, luxurious, and unique style right in the heart of Bangkok.
Bangkok tourism is booming and so is Co van Kessel. This late Dutchman started cycling in Bangkok over 30 years ago, taking tourists to the best places in Bangkok. First time I took the tour was in 2009 and since then the business grew a lot and they are offering multiple tours a day ranging from 3 to 9 hours long. I opted for the ‘Co Combo tour’, a 5-hour bike/boat tour through the remote areas of Bangkok.
Probably one of the most popular countries in the world for travel yet still everyone is having doubts about the safety situation in this lovely country. With so many travellers coming back home every year telling their friends about their island hopping adventures in the South or their motorbike tours in the North I would suggest word of mouth would do its job, right? The majority of these people come home with great memories, but there are also those stories in the media about the Koh Tao murders and disappearing people in Bangkok. So how safe is Thailand?
What is the best thing about travelling? Exploring would probably come up in your mind first and I can understand. Isn’t that why we travel the world? I am still an explorer and I would love to go to place like Pakistan or the North Pole to see stunning landscapes.
The Thai capital can be intimidating at first, but give it a chance and you will seriously love it. There are so many cool things to do in Bangkok that it is not hard to tell you where to go and what to do. But to name you the best things to do in Bangkok is a little harder. Some are so standard and touristy that you just have to tick them off regardless. If you are going to Paris you will also take a look at the Eiffel Tower, right? To me the city is more than just the Bangkok tourist attractions, I also like to walk around and enjoy the amazing street life. To me this city is more like an experience!
