I'm planning on going to Bangkok for 3 days, later this month. I've been to Phuket before, but not Bkk, so I'm still a bit confused about certain things. Hopefully you can help me with some questions here...
I'll be spending my 3 day trip by trying to visit some of the must-see tourist sites (e.g the palace, temples, etc), but I wish to stay somewhat close to the major city attraction, because it'd be easier in terms of meal and (maybe) shopping, and also since I'm planning on doing a street photography of the Bkk people & the neighbourhoods. I'm not interested in doing the club/bar-hopping this time, so I'll pretty much try to stay away from that.
Therefore, which one is more comfortable, taking the skytrain or mrt? And with that said, would it be wiser to get a hotel that's near skytrain stations or mrt stations instead?
I've been trying to find the place to stay, and have been eyeing on some hotels in Sukhumvit district, but still couldn't decide which one should I choose for a 50-60 usd/night. I'm looking for a simple and minimalist hotel (as simple as Tune Hotels, if you've been to any), but I still couldn't find anything like it. And also, I'm a female traveler, and I love to walk here and there with my camera hanging on my neck, so I'm actually looking for some place that I can quite feel secure at, when I'm going out to get some dinner.
Been looking at 'On 8 Sukhumvit Bangkok' (saw the reviews at Tripadvisor and booking.com). I mostly like the fact that it's near the station. But I'm not very sure. What do you guys think? Has anyone been there? Or maybe other suggestions?
Kindly advise me. Thanks a lot, guys!
