Hi all, My wife, son, and I will be traveling to Thailand in July. We are looking for a close, nice, and reasonably priced hotel to stay at before flying on. We arrive at BKK at about 22:00 and then fly the next morning to Isaan at about 10:00. Usually we'd just take turns sleeping at the airport, but now we have a son and that's not as simple.
Thanks. We'd like something safe, close, and won't break our bank accounts. Any suggestions would be great as to names of hotels and areas to look.
I had to go to Toronto on business this week and our puppy, Star, hates it when either Ked or I are not at home in the evenings. She values her "family time" with Ked and I and gets upset if we're not around to cuddle with.
So, I was gone for about 3 days and even when I called home, Star would hear my voice on the phone and start getting all excited.
When I was close to getting home I called Ked and told her to grab the camera to capture Star's reaction to me coming home.
Anytime when I read Incident Report, it would mostly about staff having car/truck crashed or car-breaking-in stealing stuff. But this report got me â€˜indescribableâ€™ feeling.
Its about one company staffâ€™s computer notebook was stolen while he was drunk and passed out in front of 7-11, Ngarmwongwan Rd. at 4.30 am. Friday morning. The thief just easily dropped, grabbed and ditched him.

Two years after Fukushima's triple nuclear meltdown forced tens of thousands of residents to flee, it is possible to take a virtual journey deep into the exclusion zone to one of the towns they left behind.
Today, a music question for you. Which version of Mr. Crowley do you like more? Please take into consideration that the setup of course is quite different!

After Miss Bieber's hissy fits on his recent tours, this open letter to him/her from a British musician has started going viral in the last 24 hours.
I thought Iâ€™d write you a little letter in the hopes that I can lift up your spirits and help you get back on your UK tour. Iâ€™m a musician like you. I sing and play guitar in a band called Blunderbuster. Weâ€™re sometimes on the road for extended periods of time and I often find that tempers will tend to get the better of us w
Flights and hotels are booked. Ked and I will be returning to the land of smiles next month for Songkran.
Technically, we arrive on the 7th of April but the flight gets in at 11:40pm so I'm calling it the 8th.
We'll spend a few days in Bangkok on Soi 11 (which means we'll be at Charley Brown's quite a bit - LOL) and then we're off to Phetchabun for about a week. Then we're back in BKK again for a few days before heading back home.
I hope I get to see a bunch of you while we're back. Ma
After work yesterday it was one of my happiness day went out with my new friend, Babe shopping arround. After I've been through worse moment last month.
Late last month it was my first time I felt I was loosing trust in ppl which is sad. Also a Combodian friend came to me on 19-Feb-13 asked me to hug her tell me she's leaving soon and on a break she was crying said she's lonely and have no one. I'm trying not to cry while she was wiping her tear it made me think she's been living here for 9 yea
Just got back from having what was by far the worst massage I have ever had in twenty years of coming to Thailand. There are always some that are not so good, but this one was just plain BAD!!
I was going to go to Healthland Asoke, but was tired, and it is always a wait, so I decided to try a place just along from my hotel in Soi 19, called Reflex.
I knew almost the second she started that this was not going to be a good one. The girl didn't have a clue. Most of it consisted of her digging her
After trying the City Line a couple of weeks ago, today I thought that I would try the Express Line from the airport into BKK (Makkasan).
90 baht one way. The first drawback is the frequency the train runs, i.e. every 35 mins, which means quite a wait if you just miss one. I had a twenty minute wait.
It normally takes me about 40 mins in a taxi door to door the hotel in Soi 19.
The Express train is more comfortable, and far less busy than the City Line one, which seems to be used by commuters
