I’ve just spent a few days in Bangkok, Thailand on a short trip. I had a surprisingly fun four days, even though the city itself wasn’t my favorite place of the many big cities I’ve visited so far. I had visited Bangkok before but only for a day and never got a chance to look around the city much. This time I had far more free time and got a chance to explore more.
Before I get into exploring, I want to share a review of my hotel. I stayed at the S31 Hotel, which is a boutique luxury hotel on the city’s main commercial road. It was fantastic! I have stayed in many luxury hotels from all of the big “brand names” in the industry over the years, and never likes the feel of the large, palatial hotels that are easy to find in most big cities.
S31 is a small hotel, and it has a really unique and modern feeling. The entire hotel is very modern and has a chic feel that you don’t get at the InterContinental or Hyatt. It’s also a short walk from the nearest Skytrain station and close to two large shopping malls, making it very convenient if (like me) you want to explore the city instead of spending all your life inside your hotel room.
If you’re staying in Bangkok and want to spend your time somewhere convenient, in a stylish setting, and in a refreshingly spacious room (especially compared to Singapore), then give S31 a try! By the way, expect more posts on my time in Bangkok, including the city’s many negatives, in the coming days.
