agss241 has indicated that this thread is about Thailand

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I searched thru all the
threads and din't find my answer.
It has been 30+ years since I was last in Bangkok, we (me, my
wife, my 13-year-old Granddaughter) will be there for a week.
What area(s) of the city are recommended to be close to shopping
and "tourist points of interest"? What would be a good 4-star
hotel? I'm making reservations with either AsiaRooms or
HotelClub. Thanks much,
TomW. :)

I havent stayed at 4 star hotels in Thailand before, but you could probably stay at Asia hotel, however breakfast sucks and upgrade to the better rooms? or maybe Novetel, my friend said its gd.

Siam Square, suan luan are nice palces for shopping.

How much do you want to spend per night. The Landmark Hotel on Sukhumvit is handy, probably $100 per night. Keep in mind that even hotels in the $20 range have private bathrooms, hot water, safety boxes, and air conditioning.

My personal first choice is the Sukhumvit area because you can use the Skytrain to take you to many areas of Bangkok cheaply. But, there are lots of bars around there and perhaps you may want to stay in an area with less bars. Lots of street vendors on Sukhumvit Road that you can see during the daytime.

The Asia Hotel is right on a Skytrain stop, very handy. From the Asia you can walk to New Phetchaburi Road for lots of vendors and small shops. Another hotel you might want to Google up is the First Hotel on New Phetchaburi Road. The First Hotel is reasonably priced and in a relatively "bar free" area. The nearest Skytrain stop to the First Hotel is at the Asia Hotel, about a 8 or 9 minute walk.

(If you take a taxi in Bangkok ONLY pay the meter price, it will be cheaper than bargaining! All three of you can hop in a METER taxi for the same price. Meter taxi cabs will be cheaper than the Tuk Tuks too.)

Any area of Sukhumvit Road (keep in mind; it's a long road) would be good. Lots of hotel choices (most are on the expensive side, however there are a few budget ones) and it is near both the BTS Skytrain and connects to the Subway/Underground at the Asok station. Shops up and down Sukhumvit, or take the Skytrain direct to Chatuchak or Silom/Patpong night market, or the Subway to the Suan Lum night market.
