Bangkok : It is the same as buying real estate. The three most essential things to remember are location, location and location.If you are only staying in Bangkok, you should simply stay in a hotel near the airport. The traffic can be horrible in Bangkok and you don’t want to risk missing your flight.
If you are like me and want to get off during your stay in Bangkok, the stay in Sukhumvit Road is the one to go to.I will only stay in Bangkok if I absolutely have to, but if I do, I will look for hotels in the Sukhumvit and Soi 4 area. There are a few reasons for this:
– It’s right in the heart of the action. Bars are within walking distance and the hotel prices are reasonable.
– Within a radius of five minutes on foot, there are numerous restaurants to reach. I can easily get Thai, American, Italian and many other European and Asian dishes.
– If I need a taxi, I can open the front door of the hotel and walk about 3 steps and get a taxi.
– When it is time for me to go to the airport I can get a taxi and a short walk over Sukhumvit and we are on the toll road. You don’t want to get stuck in Bangkok traffic if you have to take a flight.
