Is it possible to rent a room/flat etc in Bangkok for about a month to six weeks? I will be using Bangkok as a hub for exploring the rest of Thailand and some other SE Asia countries, and if it:s cheap enough, I thought it might be more practical to have a base where I can leave most of my stuff instead of carrying big luggage around most of the time, as well as somewhere to stay in Bangkok when I'm there. Does such a system exist for tourists? I'm currently doing exactly that in Japan with a room in Tokyo, so I wondered if it was also possible in Thailand.

difficult if you don't know people around.

They rent rooms from 1300 Bt and studios/bedsits from 2000 Bt on a monthly basis - and they need 1 month deposit.

but you can get a single room in a guest house and negotiate a good rate, from 60 Bt per night

Hotel/Hostel rooms can be rented for longer periods of time and many places offer discounts for extended bookings. Apartments can also be rented but will take a bit of groundwork once you're there as you'll have to view the place and hunt around a bit. A friend of mine is renting a nice 1 bedroom apartment for $300 Australian a month and I'm looking at doing the same as would provide a great base to travel from.

Thanks for the info. Massageuk, could you give me any more preicse info, i.e. websites etc? That sounds OK. And Drexel, I got this place in Tokyo through email, I didn't shop around on-site. Is it possible for BKK? Also, do either of you know of which hotels/guesthouses might offer the long-term discount?

Thanks again.

there is a GH called PK or something on the corner of Soi Rambutri and Trok Rong Mai (behind Wat Chana Songkhram) on Banglampoo. More expensive Peachy GH in Phra Athit (by the River).

there is always an option of storage 10 - 20 Bt per day.

Thanks for that last piece of info, very useful! Would they accommodate a 30kg bag? And could you please tell me where to find them? Thanks again!

It might be possible to organise an apartment in advance but you'll probably find that most of the cheaper options don't have websites or email so you'd have to chat to the owners in person. I'm also tryig to organise an apartment and have a few leads so will let you know how I go.

Most hotels or guesthouses will knock down the price if you indicate you'd be staying for a longer period so enquire about this in your emails.

they most probably will charge per piece or per guest - not by weight. It's always a large locked room filled with rucksucks of travellers who depart on the day or who went around.

OK, who are 'they'? Do you mean the hotel/guesthouse? Sorry for so many questions!
