Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok

... ever with a horn and a basket. (2400baht = $90 brand new!) We went on a bike ride and discovered a road that followed the river and led us to a small village with a Monastry and Temple. It was sooo much fun! Since then we have biked everywhere! I am not going to lie it is a little hairy biking on the main roads and especially at night because there are cars and mopeds everywhere, all over the road and on the footpath but we brought a flashing light and are ...
... of food and less than 20 pounds for two, including a beer and the tip. The demonstrations are taking place in several areas one being at the end of our road, but so far no problems at all. In fact, it seems to be getting a bit of a carnival atmosphere with karaoke in the evenings. However, would not recommend going or getting involved. All very peaceful but you never know. Sacha your mum is not going anywhere ...
... and asked the driver to take us to the Goldmount viewing point for a view over Bangkok.
This was worth stopping at as we had spent all our time around Koah San Road and had not really gotten a feel for the landscape of Bangkok. As it turns out, the city is quite low rise and the business towers are spread, rather than there being one distinct business district like La Defense. A good overview and it provided a better understanding of ...
... as the place has a wat on every corner! Albeit many are falling down. It has also been a World Heritage Site since 1981.

1. Wat Mahathat - the over grown face. This wat was a royal monastery. There is a Buddha's face over grown in some trees and nobody knows why it is like that. Two theories; war with Burma in which the temple was destroyed and burnt or a thief tried to steal the face and dropped it!
... a free drink, I had a vodka and redbull! It's was pretty quiet, maybe about 40 Thai people there! Looked pretty dodgy but had some slamming European club music! After about 3 cocktails it got pretty busy! Raggy (Andrew) and I split up, I met 2aussie guys who were really cool and spend most of my night with them, seeing Raggy twice the whole night!

TravelPod Member ReviewsChatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok
The hotel is in the middle of a residential area -somewhat removed from the mainstream except for a not so far sky train station. That dioesn't bother us because we have a car. Breakfast layout is more extensive than most places. The first morning we are late and have a very unpleasant experience. Even though we get there before the closing time, the staff starts removing the breakfast without so much as bothering to inform us.
