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.

... look, by this time was getting rather hot. We paid the entry fee 5000 each (£10) got a whole load of tickets for various entries. On entry the scale of the place where is rather large. So we visited the Emerald Buda really made from jade but was very grand. We also saw what can only be described and no challenge for the Guards at Buckingham Palace. After seeing all we needed to we went back to the boat and journeyed down to the Chinese market or as we describe it a ...
... 200 tickets and later showed the same revolution sign of solidarity from the movie. They were comparing the political rule in Bangkok to that of the fictitious Capitol from the movie. Protesters using the sign from the movie were arrested. Thank god I only took a picture of my popcorn and ticket stub! Off the bed, wishing I was as tough at Katniss. Bet she can run farther than 5k. New goal ...
Whilst sorting out my OZ taxes I bumped into Johno from Whitsundays again, had a little catch up and shared some stories before I headed off. We had decided on getting a sleeper train to Chiang Mai so we grabbed a cab to the station, unfortunately all trains were fully booked so we voted on getting an overnight bus. This wasn't until 8pm so we got a cab to the river where you can do a small boat cruise. The cab was ...
So yesterday I took the 2.30pm ferry and coach to Bangkok. As I said previously I was absolutely dreading this long journey which would give me far too much time to think. Actually it was okay. Quite fun in fact. Some boys who I'd met previously sat with me on the ferry. We talked loads. They persuaded me to drink some beers and I did not think about my current situation one bit! Then we got off and had to wait a while for the coach so ...
... the most picturesque the places we have visited and had a perfect white sand beach and the proverbial turquoise waters. Absolutely perfect. The beaches were backed by jungle through which you can walk to the other side of the island, but we never found the path! The ferry boat couldn’t take us into the bay so a long tail boat picked us up from the jetty and delivered us to the shore. The hotel (Fantasy Resort) was also the best of what we had experienced so far, ...
