Although we felt like we weren't in the nicest place in Bangkok we loved our hotel, Focal Local. The breakfasts were made by Karan and we felt like he made the hotel. Every time we would go out he would greet us and give us tips about managing around the city and upon our return he would ask us how our day was and if he could do or get us anything …
We slept in until the last possible moment before breakfast would end downstairs and we went downstairs to eat. There is always a set meal every morning so we never know what we are going to get. We were served fresh tangerine juice that I fell in love with. I kept trying to steal Bryce's juice when he wasn't looking. For breakfast we were served …
In the morning we packed up our luggage once more and headed downstairs to catch the shuttle to the airport. At the airport we managed to find the booths for Thai airways, picked up our tickets and dropped off our luggage. Goodbye heavy bags, we waved as they headed down the conveyer belt. See you again in Thailand. We walked towards our gate and …
This morning we woke up to go to a beautiful shrine in the middle of town. On our way we stopped by a Hindu Spirit house that was amazing. It was interesting to see and even more interesting to note that the Thai's wai and pray in front of that spirit house, but not others. Then we walked down the block to the Erawan Shrine. This was absolutely beautiful. Me and two of my peers decided to participate in the traditional way to pay ...
... was an orchid farm where we got to wander around and look.
Of course there was a temple to visit and it was the Temple of Dawn (Wat Aran) where the girls could climb the steep stairs to the top.
A great experience, and we all agreed it was a great way to see the "real" Bangkok.

Sean enjoyed exploring the city on foot till midnight ...

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.
