A Comfortable Way To Get To Your Bangkok Hotel
So you’ve decided to visit Thailand and selected Bangkok as the city to visit. Whether you’re going for business or pleasure, you’ll need a reliable and affordable way to get from the airport to your hotel. The airport taxi service I’d recommend using is www.thailandtouristservices.com
You can pre-book either a car for one to three people or a minibus for four to eight people for reasonable prices – around £18 (895 Baht) for the car and £28.20 (1395 Baht) for a minibus. There is no payment required when you book, you just meet the driver at the airport as they’ll be holding up a sign with your name on it, they’ll take you to the vehicle and you pay when you arrive at your destination.
They are a comfortable way to travel as the vehicles are air-conditioned and they operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so don’t worry about the time your flight arrives in Bangkok. The fee is fixed and you can even book a return so there’ll be no nasty expensive surprises. And if you’re heading to another city, they can take you there too for a different rate.
You will find plenty of lovely hotels to stay at in Bangkok that suits your needs. I have found a few great ones depending on your daily plans in the city.
If you are looking for sweeping views of the city, then the Chatrium Hotel is just what you are looking for. It has oversized windows which tower above the Chao Phraya River and it has luxury accommodation in this five-star hotel.
If you are looking for city views as well as being pampered, the Millennium Hilton is for you. Also situated along the Chao Praya River, this hotel has a private pier where you can hop on a free shuttle boat which runs every 20 minutes and visit SaphanTaksin and RiverCity. When you want to be pampered, head to the sauna, Jacuzzi, and pool or unwind in the gym.
For the shoppers amongst you, the Pathumwan Princess in the city center is the ideal hotel for you. The four-star hotel’s location is unique as it sits next to the MBK Centre and opposite Siam Square whilst being surrounded by some of the best retail outlets. You’ll be in a shopper’s paradise and there are plenty of entertainment facilities around you to visit when you’ve shopped till you’ve dropped.
If you want to shop and relax in the beautiful scenery, stay at the Dusit Thani which is in the heart of the city and opposite the historic LumpiniPark where you’ll find vast lakes. The hotel is also near the sky train and subway so you can easily get to the shopping and entertainment centers or visit the restaurants and shops of Silom.
And finally, if you are visiting the city for business, the Intercontinental hotel is perfect for you. It’s in a prime location in the middle of the business and commercial districts so you’ll be able to get to your destinations quickly or you can use the Chidlom BTS sky train which is close to the hotel or walk into the central district to the business areas.
