Your one-stop-shop for booking guesthouses, hotels and resorts in Bangkok, Thailand


The many faces of Bangkok from dawn to duskLooking for a hotel in Bangkok but overwhelmed with the choices? Sick or wading through glitzy site after glitzy site? Overfed on hotel propaganda and PR dribble?

Look no further -- here's the rates -- nothing more, nothing less -- amounting to some of the cheapest hotel rates for Bangkok that you'll find online. These rates are offered through an authorised and fully licensed travel agent based in Thailand, Sawasdee Travel.

There's a wide range of locales you can settle for -- from the expatriate-orientated Sukhumvit Road to the hustle and bustle of Chinatown. From the Bangkok CBD at Silom and Sathorn Roads, the central shopping districts of Siam and Pathumwan and of course, the backpacker's ghetto of Khao San Road -- just walking distance from the Grand Palace and Wat Po.

Bangkok is a massive city, but with excellent public transport you can get almost anywhere in the city at a rapid rate of knots -- there's a skytrain, subway, a comprehensive bus system and thousands of taxis to choose from.

The vast majority of backpackers head for Khao San Road, while both business travellers and tourists swing between Sukhumvit and Silom Roads -- the great thing is there's something for almost any budget everywhere in the city.

What is a good guesthouse in Bangkok?
With hundreds of guesthouses spread across the city, Bangkok can be one of the trickiest places in Thailand to decide on a place to stay. Although the Khao San Road area is popular, other parts of Bangkok are just as good, if not better. So don't rush to follow the hordes to Khao San Road -- do your research -- there are a lot of other options out there -- and pick a guesthouse that will fit in your budget, suit your style and let you do what you need to do easily.

In Bangkok the mantra is location, location, location and unless you want to spend half your time stuck in traffic, you should consider somewhere close to your area of interest. The construction of the BTS and subway have made getting around some areas far easier, but huge stretches remain totally unserviced -- including Khao San Road. Full story


Travelling to Thailand?
Thailand sees over twelve million tourists annually and while the vast bulk of them left without any problems whatsoever you shouldn't dismiss the need for having comprehensive travel insurance before beginning your trip.

World Nomads travel insurance may be the perfect companion to keep you travelling safely while you're in Thailand. Their policies can include activities such as skiing, white-water rafting and diving. While chances are you'll not be doing much skiing in Thailand, white-water rafting and diving are very popular past-times -- the Thai island of Ko Tao issues more PADI licenses than anywhere else in the world with the exception of Cairns, Australia!
