    I booked this hotel as I was joining friends who had already made there reservation here, the pictures looked good, and the price was high enough for the area that I expected something good. On first entering the room, I was defiantly wowed, but it didn't take long for the shine to rub off. I'm an easy person to please when it comes to hotels, and if one thing is broken, that's fine, so long as it's fixed promptly, I don't expect perfection every time. However, having unpacked the bags I started to actually take the room in, I noticed a ginormous dusty cobweb in the corner of the room, which had clearly been there for sometime, for the price of the room, I found totally unacceptable. I then took a shower, which I could not finish due to the god awful noise the pipes made when it was turned on. So, unrefreshed, I then hopped into the dressing gown, only to find that the the belt was broken, and then discovered that there were no slippers for me as they'd only provided one pair, which my fiance was wearing. On discovering these issues I then started to look closer at the details in the room, and notices that things looked cheaply finished and not up to scratch for what is expected of a hotel of this standard. On there own, none of these things are a big deal, and of course are easy to rectify, but the last thing I expect or want when I'm staying somewhere at this price, is to have all of these things on my arrival. The view from our window must have been so bad that they actually have fixed wooden, what I guess you'd call blinds over it, so that you could only get a slither of a peek outside.
    Everything in this hotel is over priced considering the country you're in - we paid 20 AUD each for a buffet breakfast, don't get me wrong it was very good, with a lot of selections, but I've never paid anywhere near that for a buffet breakfast before, and this is Thailand.

    The service was friendly, and my friend said her room was very nice, but they also had a view and where on a higher level, so maybe that's the key to a better room - note, she did pay the same as I had.

    All in all I would never stay at this hotel again, and was horrified when another friend told me she will be staying there later this year during her honeymoon.

    ... if they would take us there. I had the address on my phone and showed it to them. A few said they would take us for a flate rate, which is usually much more expensive than the meter, but some taxi drivers are reluctant to allow four people to fit themselves in the backseat. We found one who did, though. And this was no ordinary taxi driver. Silent, and somewhat smooth, this thirty-year old Thai guy who had very little teeth, a nice haircut and an expensive g-shock watch on, agreed ...

    My first night in Bangkok was nearly an early night…but of course this is Bangkok. I decided to go for an evening walk to get another feel for the nightlife. Dennis followed me out and midnight turned to five o'clock.

    Despite only three hours sleep, I got up early and very eager to explore the city. My first walk took me straight to the Grand Palace complex and What Pho. This is the ...

    ... This takes 2 days to get this processed at a Tai Embassy elsewhere. I think its a money grab but it is what it is.
    So back to the program...The program T people have jobs set up already and most know where they are to be located. I am in Program R and don't know as of yet. We have to decide today if we want public government schools or private language schools. There is pros and cons to both.

    ... quite sure what that something was... After finally managing to stop laughing we went to a shopping mall (Terminal 21) themed on many different cities from Istanbul to San Francisco - we thought we'd make the most of the endless opportunities in the food court but before we knew it we had pulled up stools at the Thai street food counter and enjoyed our first Penang curry (again the first mouthful was spicier than expected and Kate blamed a stubborn piece of rice stuck ...
