Bangkok - Places to Stay

Postby Dunk » Fri, 10 Nov 2006 1:04 pm

I'm up in Bangkok for the weekend and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good place to stay and meet people?

Also any good bars to go to?

Cheers

Bangkok is awesome!

Went to a friends wedding up there and had a great time. It has so much energy and the grittiness and life of it is such a refreshing change from Singapore.

Seedy fat germans with young thai girls is quite disturbing though.

The place I ended up staying was so bad - no recommendaions from me on this one.

Siam Square is a good place to head

I'd head for around Siam Square I think it's the Novotel, it's proabably around 40-50gbp a night.

Scene = what? Pubs? Hip nightclubs? Techno? Rock? Hiphop? Expats? Locals? Bargirls? Ladyboys? Bangkok's got it all, but you've got to be a little more specific...
