... her and her team had us cooking our own food which was better than any restaurant we've ever been to! A sizeable proportion of the cost to attend the cooking school is ploughed straight back into projects in the local slums and their work has helped hundreds of people. If anyone comes to Thailand you should put this top of your list of things to do. Anywhere you are in Bangkok you can go shopping, there are markets and stalls everywhere. Some sell the usual tourist tat ...
... together. It was quite emotional and we all said a few words and goodbye to everyone. The next day Sophie and I moved to a hotel we'd booked down the backpacker strip down ko San road as we were staying two more nights before we head down to the Islands. Unfortunately there was a lot of rioting whilst we were here and a grenade thrown near our hotel. But we felt safe when we were there and saw a lot of the army all over Bangkok. ...
... a bit subdued from what we remembered. No children stacking empty bottles on the street for spare change; no Tiger Beer girls in tight dresses to lure men into the bars; no loud, sleep depriving techno blaring out the speakers; it was almost as if Khao San lost a little of its edge at night. We ended up leaving the scene for nearby Ratchadamnoen Klang Road, which was much more lively at the time. Almost every outside table along the whole road was occupied, so we had to ...

Best hotel we could have chosen and book. Service was great: the people were very kind and if they couldn't help you, they'd find someone who could, and they were fast. Beautiful decor and tasteful! You are sure to feel like Donald Trump on vacation. Amenities exceded our expectations-they have everything you might have forgotten at home or at the last hotel. We stayed in the exec suite, I definitely recommend this room if your budget allows.
