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.

... family unit ambled over to the group we watched the adults greeting each other by raising and entwining their trunks. The old granny elephant in the group, blind and 75 years old, got very anxious at one point when the truck transporting volunteers rumbled by too close for comfort. Her worry was for the baby. She needed to locate him with her trunk and be assured that he was safe. Narissa said that they like music, the old granny especially. It was really very moving when the ...
... and delicious food. I would never go to Mexico by myself, why did I think it would be a good idea to go to Thailand?
In all honesty I had a pretty thorough holiday already by the time I had finished New Zealand. Clearly I’ve spent so much time with Australians and Brits that I have started calling my vacation a holiday. I would have been very happy going home after New Zealand. I booked the Thailand component because I ...
... this morning as well.
After hanging out with Mi and Ma for a bit and confirming our plans to meet up in Krabi on Saturday, I went out to dinner at a pizza place. Yes, I know. Not particularly healthy, horribly expensive (comparatively), but it was delicious. I got tomato and basil and mozzarella, and sat there enjoying it while reading on my kindle. It was air conditioned and lovely. But 160 baht! I can treat myself on occasion ...
... Wat Bangkachao where our journey through the famous “Lungs of Bangkok” begins.
The area known as Phra Pradeang is a vast network of jungle, lakes, and parkland. We traverse the jungle section on elevated pathways where cooling breezes, birds, and fish abound; eventually passing through to the gorgeous, lush parkland area.

... up, and later than evening I'm enjoying a nice meal on a beautiful beach with Lev from Holland.
The place she is staying is like a mansion , why to flash for a hippie backpacker, so after a couple of days we head into civilisation Koh Phangan style. After renting out a funky wee bungalow, it s time to get a scooter and go exploring, and this is when we find Koh Ma .....
So its 5 days of beaching in on this somewhat desolate resort area, which I'm sure thrives ...
