After 2 long flights and a stopover in one of the smallest airports I've ever seen (and our first drop toilets of the trip) we touched down in Bangkok. Thankfully found our bags and customs just didn't even seem to exist so got through very smoothly. Decided the taxi line was much too long and boring so went on an adventure and got 3 trains, walked …
Arrived in Bangkok, ordered room service and sorted out the luggage. Next day chilled by the pool and went to pat pong night market. Following day went to khoa san road to do some more shopping and had a manicure, pedicure and waxing. Went back to hotel, took forever to get back so just spent evening in. Next morning had last swim and caught taxi to airport. Furama silom hotel room 1006
We didn't set the alarm to get up because the mini vans leave every 15ish minutes. So we trekked the two blocks to McDonalds for an expensive breakfast treat. After packing and checking out, we walked round the corner to the mini van shop. We hadn't planned to be so close, so it was a great surprise to find that we weren't going to have to fork out …
... to experiences babies are. They have no concept of fear or what's considered odd or unusual. They just trust that something will be fun and go for it!

TravelPod Member ReviewsFurama Silom Bangkok
We booked 4 rooms on one floor - ideal - rooms large with 1 family 2 ajoining rooms very convenient.
Swimming pool (we were very much into swimming) on the roof was small and very much already accommodated by other guests. Very annoying when people leave their towels on chairs and go for a siesta.
Breakfast was huge. Wi-Fi great.
Hotel convenient to everything and we caught a Tuktuk to most destinations though did hire a van for a day to the floating market etc.
