TravelPod Member ReviewsDiscovery Lodge Bangkok
Discovery Lodge has addiquit facilities and the rooms are spacious. We have a double bed a tv room and bathroom all in an appartment all to our selves which is nice.

... the mall and had a look around, it was huge! Bigger than the White Rose and there were loads of different shops. Keeping the money in our pockets this time we left without a purchase but did have jacket potatoes for tea! While bartering for the tuk tuk back I said we'd only pay 20 baht, 40p, and he said ok 20 baht one stop. I said no 20 baht no stops. He said no one stop and after a while we got it and he described how he got paid for us to go in a shop. So ...
