    Ibis styles BKK soi 4 next to Pachara Suites

    I’ve stayed at the ibis styles on soi 4. It’s a fairly near hotel so all the rooms and equipment are brand new. Indeed there are some facilities that are shared with the Novotel. Location is fantastic. 5 minutes walk to nana. Lots of street action (both food and girls) right outside and also girl/ladyboy friendly.

    Tommy Emmanuel

    I met him and went to his show when he came to Singapore. Was incredible. Might see if I can get tickets to the one in bkk.

    Novotel Sukumvit 4

    Novotel Ploenchit is a different hotel. Novotel Sukhumvit 4 is literally along Soi 4. It’s a fairly new hotel.

    Rooftop bars

    I have never had this happen to me and I have brought a couple of ladyboys to Lebua before. I also see on my facebook plenty of ladyboys checking in in lebua and taking selfies with the famous lebua dome in the background.

    Rooftop bars

    Above Eleven on Soi 11
  8. The ladyboys seem to love Fuji even though in my opinion it isn't the best quality out there. However the taste is still quite decent and doesn't require that much money wise.

    Hotel prices

    I work in this industry. And technically he is not wrong. By contract if the hotel allows online travel agents (agoda, expedia, booking.com, etc) to sell their rooms, neither party is allowed to reduce the stated price but they are allowed to offer extras such as free wifi, free executive lounge, free upgrade, etc. The way agoda and booking.com attract their customers is by loyalty discounts. If you are a member of either of these online travel agents and use them to book frequently, they will occasionally throw in some sort of discount. This is not breaking the contract at all because the base price of the room is the same, but because your account has been credited some sort of discount, allowing the price to be cheaper than the website. When I book hotels, I very rarely use online travel agents and only use booking.com for price and location references. What I usually do is to email the hotel or give them a call, let them know my travel details and tell them that I will book directly with them if they give me a discount. This works occasionally because the hotel knows that if I book through an online travel agent that the hotel will have to pay 5% to 15% commision to the online travel agent depending on their agreed contract. By asking the hotel to give me a 10% discount or something of the sort, the hotel still makes more money. Ask them to throw in some more benefits like airport transfer, executive lounge, etc, and this is the reason why I always book with the hotel website.

    Nana Hotel..my first time

    I use DI Place as well. Either 350 or 450 baht for 2 hours. Room isnt big, but clean and with towels. Good enough for short time.
  11. Due to the face that my visa was about to expire on the 31st of December but I was going to stay a week more, and not wanting to pay the overstay fee, I decided to do a visa run with the company Bangkok Buddy. The meeting point is at sukhumvit soi 12 at korean town at 4:20am but unfortunately for some reason the staff was late today and instead of leaving at 5am, we left at 5:20am. The minibus fits 11 including 1 driver and the journey there was smooth. 2 stops midway for toilet breaks both which were 20 mins. Arrived at the poipet border at 11am and we went through immigration to leave Thailand which took 45 minutes due to a long queue. After that, the staff took our passports while we headed to a casino resort for a buffet lunch. The spread is decent and it offers a wide range of food but some of it was cold. After an hour, the staff returned our passports with the Cambodian stamps already stamped in our passport. Headed back to immigration to head back into Thailand and again a long queue. Took us an hour this time to clear immigration. Back onto the minivan at 3pm and headed back to Bangkok. Arrived at 8:30pm due to terrible traffic near the airport. All in all, despite the delay in the morning which then probably caused the immigration queues to be long, thus making us leave late and thus the traffic. the entire journey and process was very smooth. It cost 1500฿ for me as I have a Singapore passport but I believe for non ASEAN passports, it cost 2500฿ instead. Would recommend this company.

    mylady hotel

    Ranges from 400 - 1000 I believe. The higher price range has a jacuzzi in the room. No public transport unless you take the bus I believe. Taxi would be much easier.
