I'm just doing a bit of research here and wondering if you could all help me out.
If you are in transit or perhaps needs to stay in Bkk overnight cause your flight leaves early the next morning, would you rather stay at the hotel near an airport or would you rather go to city centre and come back for the flight in the morning?
And if you decided to stay at the hotel near the airport, would you rather stay at a budget guesthouse with shared facilities or a full serviced hotel?
All answers are greatly appreciated, thank you very much
When i was in Bangkok, on both trips i made the trip into the city, Its so much cheaper and the city is 24/7. Just grab a cab or tuk tuk to Khao San Road..i reccomed Rikka Inn, its cheap and not scummy at all with a roof top pool..ooh that rhymes!
Staying in town would depend on what time I arrive. Is it worth my time/cost to stay (Khao San area or Sukhumwit area) in town? Do I want to go out for dinner/drinks somewhere in town bearing in mind I will have to get up extra early to be back at the airport for an early morning departure? Or because of my late arrival should I stay at a hotel close to the airport, have dinner, have an early night, arise fresh for my onward flight? Comes down to personal choice. If it was my first time in BKK I'd be tempted to partake in a night out on the town. I'm a glutton for jetlag punishment. If your wanting suggestions on accomm. near the airport, Khao San area, Sukhumwit area then send me a PM. Cheers
