Travel Blogs from Bangkok
We woke up at a very sleepy 06:30 and the first thing I did was try to change our flight with Air Asia so we could leave earlier from Bangkok. As it stands now, we fly out tomorrow at 6:30 pm and we get to Shenzhen around 10pm (assuming everything is on time). The problem is that after we arrive in Shenzhen, we still have to get to Hong Kong and …
Taking a half day yesterday didn't help, because I stayed up almost just as late which made me still pretty sleepy when I woke up this morning. We opted to pass on the Intercontinental breakfast because it’s just too expensive – they wanted 600 Bhat per person per night! When/if I get status with this hotel group I’m sure it will …
I woke up at 10:45 AM this morning. Mickell and Major had left at 9AM to go have breakfast. They both had activities planned for the morning. Mickell had arranged to have a 90 minute spa treatment at 10 and Major wanted to go back to the Kid's Safari program to do some more activities. Mickell’s spa treatment was comprised of hot salt …
My trip is winding down and this will be my last entry. The past few days have been pretty mindboggling. I was offered a job at the ultimate international school yesterday. After a couple soul searching days I declined the position. It was an extremely ************* but at the end of the day I realized how much I love living and teaching in Hawaii …
Just arrived:) More tomorrow!!!

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.
