Staying in Bangkok
Settle in on Siam Square
Bangkok spills out across the meandering Chao Phraya River delta in all directions, with more than 50 vibrant districts packed into this eclectic metropolis. The city's constant urban sprawl means Bangkok accommodation may lack a distinct central core, but the sheer range of cheerful hostels, cheap guesthouses, bed and breakfasts and upscale hotels on offer more than make up for the city's haphazard layout.
Siam Square is arguably as it close as it comes to a definitive downtown core. This frenetic, cacophonous shopping and entertainment area doubles as a convenient base from which to explore the city, with the Holiday Inn, Novotel, InterContinental Hotel and Grand Hyatt Erawan all located in the heart of this bustling district.
Bunker down in boutique Bangkok
While Bangkok has long been a favourite haunt for budget travellers, this rapidly modernising metropolis is also home to an increasingly sophisticated range of hotels. The Eugenia Hotel and Spa may be located on busy Sukhumvit Road, however it's a luxurious oasis from the hustle and bustle of this hectic city.
Another Sukhomvit favourite is the Ariyasom Villa, which recreates a bygone Bangkok era through its elegant decor and lush tropical grounds. The Mandarin Oriental is a Bangkok institution. It is not only one of Asia's oldest hotels, but also a popular retreat for visitors looking to enjoy its old-world charm and upscale multi-wing environs.
Indulge in 5-star riverside retreats
As one of Asia's fastest growing cities, Bangkok is no neophyte when it comes to offering 5-star accommodation. All of the major 5-star chains are represented in the city, however the likes of the Peninsula Bangkok and the equally luxurious Siam Hotel both offer exclusive river-front views of the Chao Phraya.
