Me and my 2 friends are going to thailand in august and need some help with where to stay. We are doing alot of moving around in the short time we are there and advice is much needed!
We are spending 4 nights in Phuket. We want to be near to some decent nightlife with some pretty beaches that we can see from the resort. Preferably not in the middle of Patong but we would like to experience a night there. We all like a laugh, not a resort full of children, and watersports or something would be good! Not overly fussed about proper luxury here but somewhere nice would be ace. (Budget around 100 each for the 4 nights)
We are spending 2 nights in Koh Samui. Here we have been advised to stay on Chaweng beach? Would prefer somewhere a little more luxurious here.
Again, need some bars nearby!
We have booked our full moon accomodation but need to book one more night in Bangkok. Cheap as poss but nice at the same time! any ideas welcome?
Looking forward to hearing from u all!
There's a featured property in Bangkok showing for me on the right hand side of this page; the NapPark Hostel on Khao San. I'm sure you can probably find cheaper (this one is around 10bucks a night), but it certainly has received some great reviews from others that have booked it here on TP (and around the web)!
For Bangkok - what does "cheap as possible" mean in Thai baht? Where in Bangkok do you need this hotel?
Here is a couple hostels not far from the Skytrain route.
This hotel is safe for women. Atlanta Hotel. Old fashioned hotel on Sukhumvit not far from Nana Skytrain, nightlife, restaurants, mals, street vendors, etc.
Rail service Bangkok.
Ive been to Thailand quite a few times and will be there again from June! Im the same as you, we like to go places with a lot of bars etc so its lively. In Bangkok stay in a hotel called Buddy Lodge on Koh San. Trust me stay on Koh San road, dont listen to people who say its too noisy etc, its fun! umm I stayed in some really cheap bungalows with my ex-gf in Chaweng... I think they were owned by the Kodak shop there and a nice hotel on the beach the previous month with my mates but cant really remember the name :/ Ill have a look. What hotel did you book for Full Moon? Is it in Haad Rin?
