This will be a quick post on the best places to stay in Bangkok depending on what the purpose of your visit is.
Here we go!
If you want to party like a maniac every day and every night there are several places to stay in Bangkok as there are several nightlife areas spread all around town.
I do recommend staying near a BTS or MRT for daytime activities, but since you are going to party you wont go back to your hotel before midnight (when the public transport close) anyways so you want use it 50% of the time.
I had a friend who stayed at Aloft Bangkok Sukhumvit 11 for 1 week. There is a popular nightclub called Levels in the same building. Every night he would go to the club, find some girls and bring them back to his room. He managed to do this every night for a week.
Aloft is not the cheapest hotel, so if you’re on a budget this place is not for you. In Khao San Rd you can find a ton of cheap hostels. You can get a night for 5$ over there!
If you are one of those sex addicts looking for easy sex in exchange of money there is only one place to stay.
On Asok you have the famous street Soi Cowboy with a 20 – 30 go go bars. 500m up the road you have Nana Plaza with another 30 go go bars.
Take the MRT from Asok to Si Lom where you have Patpong, Bangkok’s third redlight district and also the oldest one.
Or take the MRT the other way from Asok to Huai Khwang where you’ll find Bangkoks famous soapy massages.
All around on Nana, Asok and down towards Bearing with the sky train you have endless options with blowjob bars, happy massage parlors and freelancers.
One really nice hotel to stay on is Dream Hotel in Asok. I’ve been to this place several times as a tourist before I moved to Thailand. The rooms here got blue neon lights under the bed that sets the mood with whatever girl you are there with.
It’s in the middle of both Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza.
I’ve made a post earlier about guest friendly hotels in Nana and Asok area. Check it out here.
If your too proud to go with hookers and you feel the need to hunt down the girls with your amazing charm and game. You are in the right city.
Bangkok have millions of girls ready to meet you. Just sign in to Thai Cupid or Thai Friendly, fish up a banging profile pic that set you apart from all the other men, and you will get a ton of attention.
Meet up, have fun, the rest is history they say.
The best places to stay in Bangkok for Casanovas is to not stay in Nana or Asok. I’ve dated several girls who refuse to go with me to those areas as they are afraid that people think they are sex workers. If their friends see them in this area with a foreigner the rumors will start among her friends for sure!
So where to stay?
Thailand Cultural Center is a good place to stay imo. If you get a hotel close to Esplanade shopping mall and the Rod Fai Night market 2. You can use those public places to meet the girl. Get something to eat and drink. Then pull her back to your room that is right by. Good logistics are important.
I’ve done this before and it’s a very effective method.
Thailand Cultural Center is close to public transport (the MRT), have several shopping malls (Big C, Esplanada and The Street. That last one open 24/7).
Here are a few hotels close to Esplanade Shopping mall in Thailand Cultural Center:
Victory Monument is also a good place to stay. That place is also close to several universities in Bangkok so if you talk with a girl on Thai Friendly who goes to school, there is a good change she is very close to you when she is finish with class.
Siam. You have to stay in Siam. If you stay in Siam you have no less than six shopping-malls around you.
Siam Discovery, Siam Paragon, Central World, Gaysorn Village, Siam Square 1 and MBK. Three stops down with the sky train you also have Terminal 21 and Time Sqaure. One more stop down to Phrom Phong you also have The EmQuartier.
If you’re a person of culture you’re in the wrong fucking city! Get your goody ass to Paris.
There are several amazingly beautiful and history rich temples in Bangkok. I have already written about ‘the big three’ here so I wont repeat myself.
If you want to experience culture in Bangkok I suggest staying in a hotel close to the Chao Praya river. From here you have access to the boats that goes up and down every 10 minutes for 14 baht.
From this boat you can get to ‘the big three’, you can explore several other lesser known temples and you have easy access to many markets and sea food restaurants along the river.
Backpackers are usually going to Khao San Rd. It’s a wild party street where people are dancing in the streets and going crazy. Most backpackers who are here have usually just arrived Thailand will go further into Thailand within a few days.
Another popular area for backpackers is close to Surasak BTS. There is nothing happening here but the few hostels who are here are close to the embassy of Myanmar, a place many backpackers are going to after Thailand.
