... yet it was nice to see that at least someone is doing something to mend the misery that exists in many part of the world and how much it’s helping these women and children. Before we went for dinner, Maytenne took us to her home to show us something absolutely spectacular… Her and her husband’s collection of: Toys, Tin cans, Stamps, seashells and cigarette cards. Now 5 collections of different things is impressive in itself but the size of these collections ...
... at least 200 people, the same unlucky lady should catch two within 5 minutes ? The two monks were standing two feet away from her and they were untouched. Maybe she shielded them from getting soaked. ...I'll leave you to ponder the religious and circumstantial aspects of the incident and move on with my narrative.
We make it safely back to the hotel in time for high tea again. We decide to skip an evening meal tonight ...
... dinner we debated on whether to try a roadside cafe or the Asiatic centre and in the end opted for live music and raw tuna for me at the Asiatic centre. It was excellent again and the music restful even if it was fun trying to translate the English lyrics from Thai English to something I could understand. In the evening we went to a popular show at the Asiatic centre. Very strange especially as ...
... sticking their goods-clutching hands in front of your face as you float by, or extending an offering hand that could easily pull your boat nearer to them, should you show even the slightest hint of interest. It was honestly pretty fascinating.
After the boat part, mom and I were left to wander the market on foot for a little while. I experienced my first Thai price-haggle, as our guide had scolded us for not doing sooner. The thing is, ...
... which was leaving at 6.
Then I had a deep breath and a rethink reminding myself that it was indeed 19:00 but my flight was scheduled to depart at 6 am the following morning.
Panic over and on to the bus though night time Bangkok.
The bus journey took approximately an hour and it was very enjoyable, watching Bangkok by night with the big shiny buildings and colourful lights. The road traffic in BKK is notoriously bad but ...

Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Bangkok
As a businessman in this Southeast Asia region, I've tried several hotels. This hotel is excellent in every aspect.
This hotel is just wonderful - we stayed in one of the Club rooms on the 32nd floor which are reserved for Priority Club members; however, membership is free (you can do it online) and if you stay at any of the Intercontinental/Crowne Plaza/Holiday Inn group hotels for just a few nights, you'll soon notch up enough points for a free night.
After arriving from a long flight from London it was nice to see a friendly young man waiting at arrivals with an Intercontinental Hotels sign and our pre booked car waiting for us outside. Yes this was expensive at 1400 Thai Baht compared to using local transport but given the fact we were both very tired and the size of the taxi queue (at least 60 people waiting) not to mention the fact that taxi drivers in Bangkok quite often rip you off (happened twice later in our stay) then it was worth the money.
The InterContinental Experience
I have stayed at the InterContinental on three occassions now, and would rate it as one of the best hotels in Bangkok in this price range. The location is excellent, seconds from the BTS, and within walking distance of the World Trade Centre and other large shopping complexes. Most of the staff are really friendly but not as welcoming as say the Landmark for example. The rooms are spacious and clean and the same can be said for the bathrooms. The suites in my opinion represent excellent value. The restaurants are first class and the spa/massage facilities again first class, if a little expensive. I would give a 5 out of 5 rating, but I think the swimming pool is not very child friendly or large, although for a couple the rooftop location is nice.
Excellent hotel; very popular with Thai upper class
We stayed in this hotel in January 2004. Excellent hotel. Large luxurious rooms (and even so bathroom), perfect service (chocolates, fresh fruit every day), friendly staff and great location near the Sky train, Siam centre and other shopping centres. I can really recommend this hotel. We would definitely stay here again. It evenhas a pool on top of the roof. Ask for a room as high as possible (above 31 th floor) for a good view over BKK.
