It's been a long time since I was last in Bangkok. Other things got in the way unfortunately. But now, I'm ready to create another great trip, starting mid October or 1st of November, and Bangkok is my first destination. There are many places in and out of Bangkok that I have sourced online, that I want to explore.
Shanghai Mansion is one of the places I really wanted to stay for 2-3 days, but when I looked at the nightly cost, it has gone up a LOT! When I checked the amount for November, I think it was about $200-$250 a night, and that is way more than my budget will stretch. Disappointing... I know how lovely the interior of it is, and really wanted to stay there.
My trip will be a long one, including Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Laos, with perhaps another country as well... I'm hoping to pay $100 per night or a bit more, during my trip; and I know November is going into the more expensive season.
Any ideas on other places in that area that would be good to stay on Yaowarot Rd? I know that that area would be quite fun and exciting for me to explore, during the day and also an experience in the evenings, with all the sights and smells and colored lanterns... I have done some research on these areas.
I also plan to spend time exploring the old parts of Bangkok, the architecture, the people, the different kinds of cooking that I'll be tasting for the first time! Bangkok is a place I've long wanted to have the time to really explore the history of it in real time.Edited: 13 May 2018, 06:02
