Bangkok is a sprawling metropolis that has spread in all directions. If you are travelling to Bangkok it’s incredibly important for you to first find and book a decent hotel in the city. Bangkok is so vast, boasting 50 districts, so finding a decent hotel might be difficult since there are a number of factors involved. We’ve got you covered though with a few tips to help you find and book a decent hotel in Bangkok.
Where Should You Stay?
Are you traveling to Bangkok on a holiday or are you going for business purposes? Both of these are going to influence your decision about where you should stay. For instance, if you are going to Bangkok for work purposes it’s recommended that you make a booking closer to your office. In most cases your company is going to handle the travel arrangements on your behalf and make the bookings, however, if you are going to the city on a holiday then you don’t need to be confined to a certain area.
Popular districts, such as Bang Na, are a great choice for most people who are traveling for a vacation or holiday. You can choose a hotel that’s situated in a centralized location but most centrally located hotels are incredibly expensive, so you might want to consider booking a hotel in Bangna. Bang Na is relatively close to the central city and also makes travel quite easy if you utilize one of the many MRT stations in and around Bang Na.
The importance of booking a hotel room at least two or three weeks early cannot be understated. If you need a visa to travel to Thailand, you will also have to show proof of your hotel bookings. There’s no point in rushing into making a booking until you have taken the time to evaluate all your options and looked at the reviews of different hotels first. Many hotels claim to offer a range of benefits and features to their guests only for the guests to find that a lot of it was exaggerated or plain false!
Do Your Homework
One of the main reasons it’s important for you to do a bit of research independently is because of the false and exaggerated claims out there about some hotels. By comparing hotels on your own you will be able to make an informed decision. Check out independent reviews left by other travelers who have stayed at the hotel and you should not have any problems finding a decent hotel in Bangkok!
