Sourire @ Rattanakosin Island
Travel Blogs from Bangkok
First day on the wards. Second day in Bangkok. Accommodation is pretty sweet and about 5 mins walk away from the hospital. After sorting out administration and picking up my ID card, I joined the General surgery firm ward round and 'from the off' I was put to work; answering questions, examining patients and ordering investigations with the help of my new medic pals Mak, M, Piper and Tiat (who are all genuinely nice and pretty sharp when ...
... 7 hours from now until my plane takes off. I didn't know what else to do. I have 99 Baht left in cash, maybe 100 if I dig deep through my bags. That will barely buy me something to eat here, if I don't want to take out money again and have transaction fees one more time. I couldn't have paid for transport or something fun to do, and I wouldn't have wanted with the pack either. So I hope that wherever ...
... sheets off of my newly scabbed knees, I congratulating myself on yet another “war scar”. Nevertheless, as the days progressed, I noticed they were gradually getting worse and so upon hopping off the ferry in Koh Samui, I made a dash to the nearest pharmacy to grab some Savlon and plasters...how wrong I was. The minute the pharmacist saw me she screamed “INFECTION!!” sat me down and beckoned all her colleagues to come over...I ...
... will not be an entertaining aspect of the sail, just think about the colorful and cherishing surroundings around the sailing boats with a magnificent natural beauty and smell of the mouth watering cuisines.
These floating shops have a traditional past and now in Bangkok you find four popular floating markets including the Bang Ku Wiang, Taling Chan, Damnoen Saduak and Tha Kha floating markets.The Damnoen Saduak is also ...
... the last 25% are reserved for either phone reservations or walk ins. Well I'm just glad, I'm like how I am. Me being persistent, anal and taking matters further then an internet search, has now got me two seriously good hostels for over Christmas and New Year. With my stress levels calming, and hostel confirmation emails have been sent to me. I can now try and rest, sort out my rucksack, and await the 5am alarm tomorrow. Cambodia here I ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsSourire @ Rattanakosin Island Bangkok
We stayed in room 407, which is to the right of the elevator, from July 30 to August 5.
The woman at the reception desk speaks pretty good English and is helpful when you are looking for places to visit.
When you need help, they come up right away! One night, the A/C was blowing warm air and we called it in to front desk. Within SECONDS, someone was upstairs.
You always have breakfast! Ask for secret fried rice. :)
Safe area away from the noise of Khao San Road. We always felt our belongings were secure.
Bathroom is too small. You may need to sit sideways on the toilet. I am 5'1" and fit alright, but it is really close to the wall.
Thin walls. You can hear every door shut in the hotel.
On our last day, there was a bad smell in our room. We do not know what it is or where it came from.
Elevator is tiny- 6 people max without luggage!
No Room Service
Pro & Con: One night, our bed broke- one of the beams broke so the bed was uneven. We called it in around 11PM and the husband who runs the hotel with his wife came up right away to repair the bed. We would have preferred a new room rather than listen to 45 minutes of hammering, but we were glad he came up right away to fix the problem.
