Bangkok Hotels

Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is located on the east bank of the Chao Phraya River, near the Gulf of Thailand. The city houses more than 10 million people, making it a highly traffic-congested city.

As one of the fastest-growing, most economically dynamic cities in South East Asia, Bangkok is emerging as a rival to Singapore and Hong Kong.

April and May are the only hot months; other months are mild. Its rainy season from July to October rainy is normally very pleasant.

Bangkok's hotels offer a great combination of service and facilities to meet the budgeting requirements of every traveler. Conrad Hotel is one of the more expensive hotels, with 392 luxurious and spacious rooms with contemporary Thai-styled silk and wood furnishings. A 24-hour stay costs around 5,650 Baht (Approx 137 US$) in this stylish deluxe hotel situated in All Seasons Place - the heart of the central business district. The hotel is close to major embassies and the Skytrain. The rooms give wonderful panoramic views over the popular Lumpini Park.

There are some less expensive hotels as well. Grand Hyatt Erawan, situated near the Erawan Shrine in the city’s business and commercial district, is just a 30-minute drive from Bangkok International Airport. Inter Continental Bangkok is very nominal; a room costs nearly 1,900 Baht (Approx 45 US$). This hotel is also situated in a prime central location opposite the Erawan Shrine. This five-star hotel offers comfort, luxury and spectacular views from all its 37 floors. It’s just five minutes’ walk to the World Trade Center, shopping centers and a Skytrain station. Some of the hotels that offer opportunities for leisure as well as business meetings are JW Marriott Bangkok, Athenee Bangkok A Royal Meridien Hotel, Bangkok Marriott Resort & Spa, Millennium Hilton Bangkok, Shangri-La Bangkok, The Oriental Bangkok, The Peninsula Bangkok, Banyan Tree Bangkok, Metropolitan Hotel, Dusit Thani Bangkok, Pan Pacific, Sheraton Grande and many more.

Thai cuisine is a centuries-old blend of Eastern and Western influences. Today Thai food is relished all over the world. Almost all metropolitan cities in the world have Thai restaurants.

The best way to locate a hotel would be to talk to the travel agent who books the travel ticket to this City of Angels, as it is sometimes called.
