Accommodation Information – Bangkok
Where did we decide to stay in Bangkok?
Based on our experience visiting Bangkok always remember this: Try your best to avoid booking your room right on Khaosan Rd. due to its notorious street noise and pulsating music. Instead, we wanted to find a place that was walking distance to both Khaosan and the Grand Palace in a quiet area. Eventually, we decided on Baanboran. It’s important to note that we are not directly affiliated with this property or any property in Bangkok. In retrospect, we did indeed enjoy our stay there. It was clean and the staff were friendly. At the time of writing it had a score of 8.1/10 based on 164 verified guest reviews. Since this was a budget savvy choice, if you’re looking for something more upscale consider these popular options in Bangkok:
Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok (rated 9.0/10) Mandarin Oriental Hotel (rated 9.2/10)
The Peninsula Bangkok (rated 9.1/10) JW Marriott Hotel Bangkok (rated 8.8/10)
How did we find the cheapest room in Bangkok?
Most of our followers that visit Thailand use one of three different booking sites: www.agoda.com (the most popular provider in Thailand), www.booking.com (the most popular site for European tourists) or www.hotelscombined.com (the world’s best price comparison site).

How did we find the cheapest flight tickets to Bangkok?
We have flown into Bangkok on 5 or 6 different occasions. Each time we have used a flight comparison site to book our flights. For these trips we used BookingBuddy.
