I'm due to go to Thailand on 4th November with my b/f and it's our first time visiting Thailand. We're spending our time between Bangkok and Chiang Mai (possibly Chiang Rai as well) I've got all my accommodation for CM sorted, but I'm really overwhelmed with Bangkok to be honest.
I've bought the Nancy Chandler's Bangkok information and I've spent months (literally months!!) looking at things online.
I really need some help!!! We're not in Bangkok for long, 5th-7th (2 nights) and then another night on 20th Nov before we fly home.
About us; we are 25 and 30 and we are NOT looking to visit the Koh San Road/drink ourselves stupid etc. It's definitely not our scene. Ideally looking for somewhere clean, comfortable with plenty to see/do in the local area as we plan on just wandering about exploring, good food nearby would be a bonus. Looking at maximum £75 per night budget.
This may sound odd but we're not in a mad rush to "try and see all the sights of Bangkok in 3 days" as we are planning on travelling next year and stopping in at Bangkok for a longer stay (month at least) We've never been this far out East before so we'll be trying to adjust to the chaos and get over our tiredness from the flight.
I've had a look at the Centre Point Silom near the Riverside but I've also seen Shanghai Mansions in Chinatown area.
Any help would be very much appreciated :)
