TravelPod Member ReviewsPatumwan House Bangkok
We've been staying in Patumwan House during stays in Bangkok since 2005. Not much has changed in that time, but the most necessary updates have been made to keep it modern enough. The hotel is located in a very central part of Bangkok (near Siam Square, just off the National Stadium BTS stop), but is down a dead end and on a khlong, so is nice and quiet -- a rarity in Bangkok! The rooms are nice and spacious, each featuring a big bed, giant wardrobe, desk and chair, refrigerator, and wet bar. There is high speed wifi available for free, as well as LAN computers in the lobby for those traveling without their own devices.
While it's not the absolute most glamorous of hotels in Bangkok, it is well appointed, excellently located, and in good shape -- I would recommend it in a heartbeat.

... but the early start was worth it as we sped along the river by motorised boat, trying our best not to tip it over. Reaching hundreds of longtail boats carrying fruit-selling thai ladies.
We were then given the opportunity to see a snake show (I am not big on snakes but you have to try everything right?)
Oh my Lord I was shaking by the end of it, a 14 year old boy throwing 10 foot pythons by the audience, an old man aggravating a cobra ...
... down an she told us a little about herself and what we were going to do today. She has two small children 3 and 5 and she has wanted to be a tour guide since she was small. She lives about 1 hour north of Bangkok. Her English is very good. She hasn't had a lot of English tuition but has learnt most of it by speaking to people whose main language is English. She told us her Thai name which was very long and her nickname which sounded like Or but ...

Thailand is not really as cheap as I expected it. Food and local transport is cheap alright, but drinks, electronics, diving and accommodation is not really that much cheaper than at home - maybe I am a bit spoiled from Nepal.
Since I have not visited the Grand Palace (which according to many guides is a must) of Bangkok I thought this would be something good to do after the errant of ...
... my shower I washed some clothes by hand in the sink. I'm mostly sitting here making time to write this blog entry because one of my t-shirts is just not quite dry. I'm sitting downstairs in the hostel and I put my shirt on a chair right in front of the fan so I think it should be completely dry by the time I have to leave...right about now.
This morning I skyped with my parents and packed and wrote down all the info I need to get to ...
By the time Sophie and I arrived in Bangkok we were exhausted. Due to time constraints, we had only spent two or three days in each place and getting up early every day was starting to take its toll. Nevertheless, there were still sights to be seen, so once again we headed out in the morning to explore. We stayed in the centre of Bangkok for the first two nights, where we had easy access to the Skytrain system. We walked through ...
