Welcome to the City of Bangkok. Bangkok is without doubt the the world’s most dynamic city. You will enjoy your stay here because this is probably the best holiday destination in the world. If you have been here once you will definitely want to come back. And if you haven’t already purchased yourself a condo in Bangkok you will need a place to stay. Which Hotel will it be? I highly recommend you to stay at a Hotel in the Siam – Pratunam Area since this is the center of the city. There are more than 1000 hotels in Bangkok so you will need some guidance if this is your first trip to Wonderland. I will forgive you if you leave Bangkok to spend a few days in Pattaya. In Pattaya you must of course stay at a Beachside Hotel, it is highly recommended because of the nice sea views.
Bangkok really does have everything you could ever wish for. World Class 5 Star Hotels, a huge variety of Restaurants, value for money shopping – you can shop till you drop. T-Shirts for 100 Baht – At that price I always buy a few. And we must not forget the Nightlife Scene that is unlike anything you have ever seen before.
