bangkok questions

Hi everyone

My friend and I are planning on doing a trip to Thailand, staying 3 or 4 nights in Bangkok. (Mid Sept)

We would like to do some tourist activities/sight seeing during the day and hit up the nightlife during the night.

I was looking at at Nasa Vegas hotel (tripadvisor.com.au/Hotel_Review-g293916-d102…) and the first review I read stated it was far out of the way and not worth staying at, especially for party goers.

Is there a specific area we should be looking at for a Hotel?

Thanks in Advance

-Wade

Hotels near Skytrain are good. Siam Square is a good central spot. River hotels are good at night if you have a view.

Depends on budget also.

Thanks, ill start looking at Siam Square

Budget would be considered fairly low, but not as low as a backpacker

We have needs, Separate rooms, own bathroom, aircon, and a safe in the room.

I would saw around 1000 a night or less would be fantastic, but could go up to 1500 a night

Hi,

I believe there are some cheap hotels on hostels.com. Anyway, there are a number of cheap hotels in the 1,000 baht range, we always stay at the Honey Hotel on Sukhumvit, Soi 19. It is central close to both the MRT (subway) and BTS (Skytrain).

"...especially for party goers."

Nana area on Sukhumvit Road. Walk to nightlife, malls, vendors, restaurants, etc. etc. Also in this area you can use the Skytrain. Using a real computer do a forum search for Nana area, Sukhumvit, Road. Do a Google search too for nightlife Bangkok.

Under 21 years old and you want to be around other young tourists - do some research on Khao San Road area. No access for Skytrain but lots of young tourists.

If you want hotel help include your price range. (Do a forum search for hotels in whatever area you need a hotel in.) Nasa Vegas is not a bad hotel for the price. Conveniently located near to the Airport Rail Link stop but not much of what you want to do in the late evening without using taxi rides.

(Airport Rail Link connects with Skytrain.) You can use rail service from Suvarnabhumi to the Nana - Asoke area until midnight.

I would agree the Nasa Vegas is a bit far out from everything,

If you want to be in the Siam area cheap and cheerfull then maybe this place might be of interest.

If you are willing to stay in Sukhumvit (good for restaurants bars and street food) and also close to Sky Train you might consider this

Hope that is of some help

Banglamphu area should suit you. More value for money with accommodation,restaurants and drinks prices around Khao Sans Rd.

Your near the river and the excellent day time river transport systems to get you to the temples and sites which are situated near the river.

Spent many an excellent night during my winter stays in the KSR area and I'm the wrong side of 50. Very good vibe, atmosphere and nightlife, not at all seedy unlike some of the area's on the "shiny path"

Contrary to popular opinion from some of our American buddies on here, Khao Sans Rd is full of people of all ages of all nationalities and is certainly not a closed shop for under 21s.
