    Return flight needed to enter Thailand

    I've used it myself in the past. Its a legit ticket with assigned pnr. i would highly recommend in a case like this.

    Is The Landmark Hotel Club access worth it?

    In my opinion, i rather put the extra money on a larger room. I stayed in the club room during month of june for a few days. Not sure if they have improved it now. View from the lounge is nothing special. Food, or rather snack options are just average. Drink menu is very limited. The service from the staff is really good though.

    Travel Cost and Accomadation Q4 2022

    I've noticed many hotels have increased their prices. Was going to stay at Aloft or Mercure but for me it's not really worth what im getting for the money. There are still some hotels with good prices. Few examples Galleria 10 and Hotel Solo at soi 2. I'm sure there are others to find with good value for money. When it comes to flights i'm happy to have saved up a bunch of Avios and Eurobonus that i've used on my next trip. So i don't really pay too much.

    Bangkok best hotel

    I was a little bit dissapointed with Landmark during my stay, maybe the fact that i think the executive lounge was a big joke. I did like the rooms at Mercure soi 11 more, just opposite of Cindys. Aloft is decent as well. Personally i would pick Mercure or Aloft instead of Landmark on my next visit. I understand they have their policies when it comes to early check in or late check out. At Aloft i arrived 7 hours before check in because of early flight. They didnt have any problem to find me a room, plus they also gave me a free upgrade for no extra charge. While on the other hand, Landmark i asked for late check out (3 hours later than my check out time). They were going to charge me for a half day extra for late check out.

    Airline prices

    What dates are you flying? Maybe try different routing. If i check some random dates in november from Stockholm to Bangkok its 600gbp with return flight. I know it's easier when you can be flexible. Cheapest option from scandinavia seems to be Finnair, followed by Thai airways. Same dates from London around 730 gbp. Eva air slightly cheaper than Finnair. I still have a lot of frequent flyer miles with SAS to use on star alliance tickets. On my last trip all i had to pay for award ticket was 50k Eurobonus (2-4-1 amex voucher) plus 90gbp in taxes. I do think there will be a devaluation coming though, so if people are sitting on a lot of points with whichever airline or amex membership reward i think its time to use them. Considering current prices on economy tickets i dont see any problem booking such with award tickets.
  6. I know we are probably very few. If someone like it as much as i do, or is eager to try i could highly recommend Lola's Kitchen. Located closed to sukhumvit soi 49. In the picture. Lumpiang shanghai, lechon paksiw, pork sisig & lechon kawali. Masarap!

    Walked past citrus suites when going to analisa massage the other day. It looks really nice, and the street is ok. I checked the prices online for the bigger rooms, seems like great value for the money. Will give it a try on my next visit.

    S15.

    I stayed there 2 years ago, also 7 years ago. I usually never eat any breakfast as its too early. I tend to be back in the room very late, so breakfast is not an issue. I know the pool isnt the greatest, but its good for an hour or two to relax during the day. I agree abut the music in the elevator, haha its a disaster hearing same song on repeat. Before i used the club room, with the extras it came with. Not really worth it though since the hotel doesnt have a lounge. But the service was excellent in the rooftop bar. I actually haven't tried the hamburger, so i have to do it next time!

    S15.

    I stayed at Galleria for a week a few weeks ago and am now at S15 in a junior suite. Not much of a price difference. Galleria has an unused quiet pool. S15 has none. I am loving the S15. Obviously not as quiet but I'm fine with the rumbles of Sukhumvit. Has an outdoor bar on the street you can sit in evening - great for people watching. I'd come back here again. The Movenpick up the street was recommended to me by a certain LB. I checked it out and it looks good too, depending on rate you can wrangle on Agoda. S15 looks great, might give it a try as well. I do prefer a hotel with a pool. S15 looks promising though with great location. I got a good deal on Agoda at Galleria 10. Deluxe Chill Room, 820 baht/night (maybe its the normal rate?). Only staying 2 nights there though before i go to Pattaya.

    Chiang Rai

    Has anyone done a day trip to Chiang Rai from Bangkok? I'll travel to Thailand next month, and i always wanted to see wat rong khun (white temple). I saw prices on flights are extremely cheap, and a round trip is like 30-40usd from Bangkok. I'm not really interested in seeing anything else in Chiang Rai. Maybe im missing something else? Would it be possible to get a taxi straight from the airport to temple and then back to the airport? How many hours would i need? If there are other things that are a must to see or do while in Chiang Rai i could stretch it maybe to staying a night. I only stay 3 weeks in Thailand. 1 week for Bangkok, 4-5 days Pattaya. The rest i havent figured out yet. Maybe few days in Koh Samui or Koh Samet. That's why i don't want to spend too much time in Chiang Rai, unless there is something else i really should do or see when im there. All input is highly appreciated.

    Guest Friendly Hotels In Bangkok

    I will be in Bangkok dec 23 to dec 28. I'm really struggling to choose a hotel. I've stayed in Galleria 10 before with club benefits which i really liked. This time i'm choosing between Galleria 10, The Landmark, Doubletree (Soi 2) or Adelphi suites. I just can't decide. What i didnt like with Galleria 10 was the distance to Nana (well 10 minutes walk is not bad, but when being drunk it feels very far), i also didnt like that the elevators was just very near the reception. The less walk of shame effect the better. Does anyone have any other recommendations? My budget is maximum 6 000 thb per night. I would prefer a hotel with late check out option. My flight from Bangkok is dec 28 very late evening.
