TravelPod Member ReviewsFocal Local Bed and Breakfast Bangkok
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights when we arrived in Bangkok. We arrived a lot later then we were supposed to due to plane trouble but the free car was there waiting for us. The only thing we weren't expecting was that the hotel was an hour away from the hotel. Which normally wouldn't be a problem but we were so tried and overwhelmed at that point that it wasn't much fun. When we got there though we were greeted by Karan. He stayed late and left reception open for us so he could give us some maps of where the good places to eat are and brought us a cool drink to sip while he showed us to our room. The rooms are small but we liked it. We stayed in the Simply Gorgeous room and did find that it was quieter then the other rooms that faced the road. We were served delicious breakfasts each morning and had no idea that they came in different courses. They gave us a main course and then a sort of dessert course after that usually with fruit and fresh tea or coffee. Karan definitely made our stay. He was always smiling and suggesting places for us to go. He also explained how to get around some scams that certain people try to trick you with around the royal palace. The only bad thing I will say was that it didn't seem to be in the greatest area. Although it was easy to get to the ferry boat that goes down the river and the skytrain that took us to the railway station. All in all the hotel was very cute and clean.

... the hotel. Every morning between 6-6:30am the monks make their way to the old city down our road and people gather to offer them food. We had missed them every other day that we'd been in town, but decided we'd catch the “ceremony” on our last day. It was interesting to see people parked on the side of the road handing out food from their pick-up trucks. Once the monks had passed we went back upstairs and packed our things. ...
... FEW DAYS SO ALL MAY BE QUIET ON THE ASIAN FRONT FOR ACFEW DAYS. (By now you will recognise Ruth's expertise with the keyboard) Chiangmai is very busy as there is a flower festival on at the moment. Went on the cooking course which was great fun. And we eat what we cooked. Went up above Chaingmai and went to the nicest temple yet. Ruth fancied the monks after failing with the soldiers yesterday. Another fine meal and a few beers and now we are back at the ...
... albeit through the smog.
Back to the hotel after this and quick walk around Koah San Road to negotiate some gifts for the boys - two little wooden frogs that made croaking sounds when rubbed with a wooden stick. Right up Benji's street. A final shower, bags packed for the flight and downstairs to catch the minibus to the airport at 20:00. The minibus was full and the driver drove like a maniac all the way there - it would have been a ...
... s Summer Palace. It is used for ceremonies now and the current King's summer Palace is in Wah Hin. Then we proceeded to Ayutthaya and 3 of the temples or Wats near there with a boat trip back to Bangkok.
Ayutthaya was the old capital of Siam founded in 1350 and remained so until it was taken over and burned by the Burmese in 1767. Efforts were made to renovate the ruins and a clean up was started. It was declared a World Heritage site in 1981. During ...
... forget meeting these girls. Two Devon-born/funny as **** birds that had just done all of Asia, ending in Thailand. We only spent a few days together before they headed down South. That was over 6 months ago and we only hung out twice, yet I still email them both back and fourth near enough everyday.
A few rotten hangovers later, I was back in my plastic, tacky bar, awaiting my bus/boat/bus/bus/car/minibus/boat/bus down to Koh Tao, I felt at one with myself. ...
