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.

... This means test writing, novel plotting and generally getting my head into a creative space. So throw creative things at me like art and music - anything inspiring is great (maybe not so much writing, I don't want something to compare myself to in the days leading up to the marathon). Anyway, please hold me accountable. Please help me finish my book, and if you do, I promise I'll stick your name in the acknowledgements and give you a big hug of some ...
We have had some very fun and busy days.
Went to Discovery Museum . This museum tells the history of Siam and how it turned into Bangkok . It is a very interesting Place.
The different Kings that fought won or lost.
This was considered the golden land, because it would grow so much.
It is amazing the produce, fruits ( many we have never heard of ) that are for sale or just in your back yard.
Would have ...
Time to leave behind the craziness of Siem Reap and Mad monkey to return to Bangkok. The process at the border was stupid, in that there was little instruction but a lot of walking! We eventually made it back onto Thai soil and back to the 3Howw hostel where we originally stayed. Laura was feeling quite ill so we grabbed a bite and had an early ...
... 9pm. Suvarnabhumi Airport was very busy and we took a long time to check-in and clear immigration. It is fairly new and HUGE, but very utilitarian: not at all like Changi. I had a strong, 45min upper body massage and Robyn a reflexology/foot massage while waiting to board. Both very good and a useful preparation for a long flight. TG473 to Brisbane, flight time 8hr 20min. A Boeing 777-200ER with 292 seats, ...
... a teacher workshop where everyone in the program got to explain how they ended up in Thailand and wanting to teach. As cliche as it sounds, this really brought everyone closer together. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday consisted of Thai language and culture lessons. I have definitely learnt that the best way to learn a new language is to jump into the deep end. It's a great realization when you are out and about and can hear what people are saying and at least understand ...
