The hotel lobby is newly renovated but not the rooms. Location is considered good as its jus behind Baiyoke Sky. Room is not sound proof at all and you can hear ppl banging doors and talking. Well as its budget hotel so cant expect too much lor.
I have not stayed in Samran before so cant compare the two. I don't think that the rooms are newly renovated,furnitures are mouldy, carpet old and dirty but the bedsheet are clean la. There are hair dryer, toiletries items and electric kettle which I think is the plus point for budget hotel as I think some do not have these items. Breakfast wise I personally feel that its not very nice. One more thing is that there are two rows of rooms on each floor and happen that I stayed on the side that could hear railway train sound every now and then, many inconsiderate ppl banging doors and shouting so not really comfortable during my stay for this point (maybe I unlucky also la). Other than that, if your expectation not too much for budget hotel then should be fine. During my stay, I also noticed that 90% of guests are Singaporeans.
hey joyous... if ur kids are those who are not okie with heat.. mayb u wanna skip chatuchak cos the heat can get pretty bad even adults cannot stand... u should make a trip to suanlom night market.. they have alot of things too.. & since its at nite.. shopping is more cooling there...
I went to BKK in 06, plan gg again friens @ end Nov 08. Previously took Tiger & this round seem still Tiger offer lowest for Budget Airline but it is not inclusive of 700THB airport tax right? Jetstar is inclusive but seem slightly more expensive.
Self booking on flight+ Hotel is confirm cheaper then agency F & E package?
Anyone stayed at First World before? Any feedback to share on location & svc? Read terrible reviews on bed bugs, newer tower seem lesser issues. Cos Friens already booked, duno if really 1 stay der for convenience to meet & communicate.
Duno if should buy IDD cards der, pls share how does it works? My HP line doesn't need to be auto-roaming as using BKK local cards right?
What about price & talking time range?
i have also booked my flight in late Oct. News reported Bkk situation quite bad now, anyone just came back from Bangkok and can advise how is everything there?
Anyone book their air tickets by airasia? I thought of postponing my trip to Dec, quite concern if the situation there won’t become better by late Oct. If cancel the flight, any refund?
If postpone, any penalty? Im have been trying to call the air Asia customer service hotline the whole morning, it seem no one is working leh
If u r nt a in-hse guest of Baiyoke Sky, i wld nt advise u to go there for their Int'l buffet cos it cost ard S$100/pax
The last time round i went there after hearing gd feedbk but din kw the pricing. In the end turn bk cos its reali nt worth the price thou heard that the food selection n the view might be worthwhile for sum
But u can try the fruit buffet which is very much lesser. Tink cost less than S$30/pax
I'm in the same shoes as you. Booked for Air Asia for end Sept to Bangkok. I tried calling their hotline for whole afternoon last week. Got through finally then got cut off. Also emailed them. Nothing was really mentioned in their website on refund.
Lots of ppl say as long as you avoid the government area should be safe, is that true? They said the shopping area is not being affected at all. Is CTC ok? I’m concern about the route to CTC also, whether they will eb any protestors hunging on the roads
I only have two more weeks to decide if i want to con’t my trip, seem like situation not any better.
You can buy IDD cards from 7-11 outlets there. Its relatively cheaper to make calls using the IDD cards than auto roam from hps. It costs about 300 bahts. It can last you for quite some time.
I think in chinatown, they do sell kids' stuffs. Soft toys, stationary, accessories ( hello kitty, strawberry shortcake ) etc. MBK has it too. As for clothes, I am not too sure.
My mil just came back from Bkk last week. She said everything was fine and peaceful. Just that the weather was quite bad. Very warm and at times heavy rain. She fell sick there.
I am going to bkk in mid of dec. Any places to recommend? So far, I always revisit partunam market, mbk, khao san, chatuchak, chinatown and platinum mall. Was wondering if there are any other places to visit?
I found a brochure from my mil's last trip. You can bring your kids to Dream world, Siam Park City, Safari World etc.
I had been to Safari World before. It was pretty entertaining except its very warm. You can get to see wild animals romaing about freely. There are also animal shows and other entertainent. It will take almost a day. I booked the tour at one of the tour agencies there. The travel time was about an hour or so.
