Sourire @ Rattanakosin Island
Travel Blogs from Bangkok
Jurel and I got married on July 27, 2013. On July 30, we left our homes in Guam for Bangkok, Thailand. Our first stop was a short layover in Osaka. From there, we transferred airlines from United to Thai Air. Thai Air is amazing and we looooove their service and their airlines! I wish we could fly them ALL the time.
My favorite part of the …
Though today is/was a travel day to get to Chiang Mai, we took the opportunity to take a morning stroll through the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and the street vendors.
Not really sure how to explain the Grand Palace and Wat Pho beyond the fact that they are both majestic with numerous temples with each of their confines. View the slideshow …
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHELE !!!!!!!
Our morning started with a common theme here in Thailand, a complete stranger aiding another. As we searched for the location of the Bank of Bangkok, the woman fleeing the exposure to the elements of the rain, offered us to walk us to the bank. Though trivial in regards to her level of effort as she was …

We had to stay 1 night in Bangkok, before travelling to Vietnam. We stayed in a very nice hotel in Bangkok City, very hidden, not easy to find (either for the taxi driver) but with a great atmosphere. The staff was extremely friendly, they looked after us and let us feel very welcome. On the same night we did a …

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.
