First night ever traveling and first night in Bangkok (Thailand) and decided to stay at a high budget hotel to ease myself into the experience.
On a whole my one nights stay in the hotel was perfect. I was arriving to the hotel late at night after landing at Bangkok airport at 7pm and all I could think about was getting some well needed rest in my room. I found all the members of staff very helpful and the checkin process was quick and easy and to top it off on arrival they informed me they had upgraded my room from a superior double to a executive suite. However on reading other reviews from people about this hotel this seems to happen a lot??????
The room was very spacious and had everything included complementary you would have liked, Tea/Coffee, kettle, Hair dryer, electronic safe, drinking water etc. This particular room had a good view of the city, despite the poor visibility due to storms but was still worth it. The bathroom was perfect, a huge shower and included a bath which I took advantage of after my long flight from Britain. I did however have a few particular problems with the room, the first was the free WiFi. I was told that the internet login that I received would work in all areas of the hotel, however I had difficulties using the internet in my room and found the only place it was worth while using was in the lobby, which i didn't mind to much as it was next to the hotel bar. The second was the TV, it didn't work, maybe due to the weather i wasn't sure but was a little disappointed Although I'm sure if i had said anything at the front desk the hotel would have found a solution.
I used the hotel restaurant for both evening dinner and breakfast as I had paid for breakfast to be included. I was the last person to eat of the evening so there wasn't much on offer however there was a good Variety for breakfast in the morning.
The hotel itself is very good, clean and presentable all you could ask for, and the lobby was quite big and spacious. which was useful as I had to wait in there for a few hours in the morning for a friend to arrive. I chose the hotel due to the location and it didn't disappoint. Located right next to the Makkasan Sky train station which is a direct route to the airport, it was very useful for me and my friend.

Today was my first day with matthayoms at Pongsuan alone. I wasn't particularly excited about it, to tell the truth, having dealt with the matthayoms with an experienced teacher nearby and still not having excellent results. But all things considered I don't think it went too badly. My kindergarteners are weak - their Slower than my other classes of the same level. ...
... were 4 older elephants and one 6 year old elephant. The baby elephant would make a noise to say thank you when you gave her money or fed her. After this we went to the artist village where we got to take an art class and design our own henna tattoos. Of course we all ended up with ridiculous patterns on our hands and feet that did not look professional. Thai people will be brutally honest with you, so we have had a few tell us they don't like our henna designs. In the afternoon ...
... the lift brings you out) doesn't move. However, the outer layer moves 360 degrees in a clockwise direction. It's quite slow so you don't really notice and takes about 2hours to complete a full circle. The view is incredible, and being night time the entire city was lit up and it looked unbelieveable. However, after debating if he could get used to the movement combined with the height, Adam decided that staying for a meal was out of the question so we had to finish our ...
... we had to make use of the very swarve roof top pool. Saturday evening we ventured to the Sala Daeng night market. We bartered our way through the stalls, thinking we were getting some great deals...but probably not! Ate our first proper street food meal which of course had to be Pad Thai (costing 50 baht, just under £1!), and bought a guava for dessert. We took a taxi over to Koh San road to meet some of my brothers uni friends for drinks. Koh San road is the main hub ...
... lot of attention. Teachers are not paid well but do it as a lifestyle because they love to teach and never go on strike cause that would hurt the children. ESL teachers are paid more than the other teachers. I must pay for my own accommodations etc. Some schools do not have air conditioning. You can if you want take on another job on the weekend such as a private language school or do private tutoring for 800-1500BHT per hour in the evenings / ...
