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.

... has heard we are moving to the Hansar. She is concerned that this may be because the Sukhotai has done something to upset us.

We start off well but the Bangkok traffic is in gridlock and it takes 40 minutes. Half ...
... this can only be described as a Hania sandwich.

... his reaction was priceless and I'm glad they left these sorts of bloopers throughout the video. Then we geared up with bikes and helmets (mine was absolutely huge for my head, and the majority of the times that sideways) and we're off. Here is a list of the places we visited and the fact that Marissa told us: (not in order) 1) Wat Kalamayamitr - Marisa taught us how to fold a lotus flower as an offering gift to Buddha - the bells outside of the church that people ring serve ...
... academics and any others in a position to rebel seems to be instilling fear in their opponents and is forcing some to leave the country. The fact that the king has also supported the coup means that the military are now running the show, end of. I won't get into the details here but from what I can see so far this coup is fairly typical of a situation of the "haves and the have nots".
Spent yesterday visiting the tailors again ...
