The reviews are right, an oasis in the middle of urban bustle. Three stories, a lush green courtyard, Koi pond, swimming pool, air conditioning that works, unbelievable cabana for relaxing and restaurant. The wind chimes and water splashing are about all you can year even though there is a major boulevard with traffic from hell a block away. There are sidewalk markets, a big department store that is worth exploring and you are in sight of downtown. Food in the restaurant is great but it may take a little work to get people's attention. The WiFi is weak. English is not the first language here but they are very friendly.

We hailed a metered green and yellow taxi at the first boulevard. I handed the driver a map, pointed to Chinatown. He shook his head ‘no’. We …
Cindy and I hailed a taxi but this time it only took a few tries to find a driver knew the way to Wat Pho, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. The massive gold leafed Buddha is over 43 meters (141 feet) long.
The entire temple complex was contained within high white walls. Every so often were iron gates through which we could see …
This has been a hot trip with a lot of walking. The best way to keep going is to copy the locals: stay in the shade as much as possible, drink copious amounts of bottled water, and move slowly. Showers are the highlights of the day.
I have not yet seen a shower curtain on this trip. The standard hotel bathing arrangement has been for …
