Travel Blogs from Bangkok
Best thing about Bangkok if you ask us is street food. We sampled most of it outside piers. There are too many things to try. Freshly squeezed juice (orange or pomegranate) goes perfectly with bar be que'd stuff. We went around a bit on Chao Phraya river. Most interesting places are around the river. Local ferry is very cheap but touts are always …
Road warriors move to Bangkok now. Our longest drive at 778 Kim's but we make good time -hardly stopping on the way. GPS borrowed from a friend has new interface. A bit of learning but It serves us well eventually. No missed turns for the hotel. Finally arrive at Bangkok and flop. Hit the streets after a brief respite. Our first visit to Bangkok. …
Back to Bangkok after a quick visit to the old city in Chiang Mai. After a few crazy conversations where lost in translation would be the key explanation, we managed to get to the hotel and then back into a taxi to go to Colin and Lib's - steak and snags and great catch up with Colin and Lib and Steve and Peta (and Will, Felix and Gigi). Some …
Great day - slow start followed by silver buying, an unplanned visit to tailor , great lunch then trip along river to interesting fish market. Will upload picture of the 'gob' in basket- that would be basket of what looked like young cane toads next to bucket of skinny snake like eels and cat fish. Tailor told us that she ate the gob fried with …
Back to Bangkok and loving it! Great greeting from Steve and Peta and Lib and Colin! Lots of travel tips and ideas for our days here.

Roof top bar last night Sirocco on 64 floor - quite spectacular - prices …

TravelPod Member ReviewsCentre Point Silom Bangkok
All the nice bangkok features are there: the sky train station and sauthorn pier are a short hop across. Usual bargain hunting and street food available as soon as you step out. There's Robinson mall in the same building. What sets the hotel apart is really the kitchenette/laundry facilities in modern spacious apartments. There was some lack of coordination between reception and restaurant which could have caused us to be overcharged if we were not careful. Can't find another negative though.

Historical Traveler Reviews Centre Point Silom Bangkok
Just completed a 3D2N stay at Centre Point, Silom.
We reserved a one bedroom river view 80sq m apartment through hoteltravel.com for US$90 per night. Centrepoint has major renovations underway and I assume this is the reason for such a cheap rate. The main lobby is being renovated, which necessitates entrance through a side door, and there is some noise at ground level during the day, but this was a minor issue.
I have good experience staying at one of the Centre Point Service Apartment at the Wireless Road last year.
This hotel although advertised itself as a serviced apartment seemed to have most of the features of a hotel and behaved like one!
We stayed at Centre Point Silom this August in a 2 bedroom apt. Each of the bedrooms was larger than a hotel room, and each had a separate large dressing room. There were 3 bathrooms, 2 of which had separate tubs and showers. Between the bedrooms was a livingroom with a kitchen. The apartment was nicely furnished with stained wood built ins. Each room had its own tv with numerous cable channels. There was also a washer/dryer, altho it took a while to figure out how to get the clothes dry. It was perfect for a family or two couples traveling together.
