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 we went to the most beautiful temples' really breathtaking. We saw the laughing Buddha the reclining Buddha and the emerald Buddha. The emerald Buddha has actual outfits to wear and they change his clothes 3 times a year. We also went to the grand palace, again it was spectacular, nothing can compare to it.

... and if anything you weren't really thinking about how hard it was as the surroundings were so beautiful. We arrived at our home stay after around 6 hours of trekking. It was extremely modest with a cooking fire, two light bulbs, no running water and strangely a TV! We had a simple yet delicious meal of pumpkin, bamboo and tofu, which was accompanied by about 5 shots of rice whiskey. I think they loved seeing our reactions as you cannot help but squelch up your face ...
... us to a riverbank that offered speedboat tours. This river was/is the focal point of trade via surrounding countries and still experiences heavy trade traffic. On some of the canals we traversed, we saw huge Komodo dragons in the water (I believe we saw about 6 or 7 in an hour). An old lady on a boat paddled over to us trying to sell us some goods. Since this was practically her way of living, we decided to help her out by buying a few brews and made a toast to ...
Following our day of tubing, we had a chilled day really. I slept quite a bit during the day. Nat and Jess had gone home at this point. We didn't do a lot that day and as I recall I was in bed early. The next day we were going to do some stuff but instead we went on the beer. Was a good day. Started off playing cards in the other side bar which was a good laugh, then we went to get more mushroom shakes but they didn't have the same effect. We ...
... so when we passed an apple orchard, Yui slammed on the brakes, and out we jumped to pick Thai apples (they are called monkey apples in English and are very tiny) for half an hour. We decided we were hungry then, so we stopped for lunch at the very unique spot. We had lunch on a raft that we rowed out to the middle of a lake where we ate our lunch. When the waiter brought out our main courses, one had a lid ...
