TravelPod Member ReviewsDoubleTree By Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok
It was sunday afternoon when i arrieved at Sukhumvit International Airport, a black limousine is waiting ouside to service me going to my accomodation at the newly openned DoubleTree by Hilton at the centre of Sukhumvit road, Bangkok. Approaching the checkin counter, you will see many smiles from their young and friendly staff, welcoming me with a newly baked cookie to promote their so called 'Cookie' culture. Everyone address you by name as if they knew me for the longest time, in which i must admit makes me feel the hospitability of Thai people. After filling in the guest form, i was escorted going to my room for a good relaxation after hours of travel from Manila airport. The hotel is right beside Hilton Sukhumvit which is set to open in the coming months. Double Tree has 2 outlets, nice food by the way, a fitness centre and a pool. It has almost 200 rooms welcoming every guest with a distinc Hilton culture.

... brilliant frescoes on the walls and every domed ceiling. Unfortunately they don't allow any photography and they enforced it by requiring everyone to place all belongings in lockers. If you are ever in Bangkok, do not miss this. It was not even on our list but entry was included with the Grand Palace ticket so we gave it a try.
I couldn't visit Thailand without getting a massage, so I found a reputable place and made an appointment. I went alone on the ...
... or understand English very well. Of course, I'm sure there are a LOT of Thai who do, but the general population do not. Like at all. SO trying to tell someone anything at all is an adventure in and of itself. Our cabbie that day didn't understand a word we said, and we didn't understand what he tried telling us. There was a lot of laughter, a lot of "OK?" "OK!" and lots of "NUMBER 1, NUMBER 1" not sure what that meant. The Thai also say things like "NO money, no honey" and "no ...
... and drag you upto dance which is a good laugh. Expect to pay about a £1.20 max for a large bottle (just over a pint), Chang. Singha & Leo are the popular ones, Chang my personal favourite. Its great at night too sitting outside on our wee hippy street, playing our very ellaborate & adapted game of switch we have created (Liam won the Bangkok tournament, i will have my revenge) and watching all the hustle & bustle go by. Be warned, although ...
