The exotic tropical city of Bangkok is the capital of Thailand. Known for its crowded streets, steamy heat, street markets and vibrant nightlife it is a wonderful place for tourists to experience. Exotic temples, ramshackle buildings and modern shopping malls line the streets and long-tail boats and sampans crowd the Chao Phraya River which runs through the city. Staying in a holiday rental in Bangkok is a great way to enjoy the city whilst providing a quiet refuge after a day exploring the city sights.

Things to Do in Bangkok

Bangkok offers a host of things to do around your holiday rental. The city is best explored on guided tours which take in the many Buddhas, temples, palaces and monuments. Take a boat trip in a long-tail boat along the river, see the local houses which line the banks and visit the floating market where traders gather in boats to sell their fruit, vegetables and other goods. Shopping is an essential part of any holiday in Bangkok, from the smart malls to the atmospheric night markets. Thailand is also well known for its massage parlours and spa therapies. Most hotels offer a range of treatments and Thai massages to non-residents in their day spas. Whatever your tastes, Bangkok has a lively nightlife from clubbing to go-go bars and gentlemen’s clubs.

The view and location were first rate, and the amenities of the hotel (pool and minimarket) were brilliant to have at our disposal. In particular, the cleaning lady was wonderful, and we really appreciated the comfy couch and fantastic views. Something to note is that there is a lot of construction happening, and the beds are very firm, but that may or may not be a consideration for you. It didn't affect our very enjoyable stay too much, so go for it!

The beds are super comfy, and the nespresso machine is a delightful plus. Salvatore provided detailed communications so check in/out was a breeze. The only downside to note was the apartment could be noisy during the day due to nearby construction, but it wasn't much of an issue for us as we were out most of the time.
