Where to stay in Bangkok for easy access to transportation and attractions?
We recommend staying near the Saphan Taksin station of the Skytrain BTS. This is where the central terminal for Bangkok's Chao Phraya River bus boats intersects with the BTS Skytrain.
Nearby upscale hotels include Shangri-La and Mandarin Oriental, and budget hotels include Astera Sathorn.
From here, you can take the Skytrain BTS to get to the downtown area of Silom for shopping, and to the airport, you can take the BTS to Phaya Thai for the Suvarnabhumi Airport Express.
If you want to go to the sights, then you can use the bus boats on the Chao Phraya River, the wind is cool and there is no traffic jam, and you can easily reach most of the well-known attractions in Bangkok.
What do I need to bring?
Travel abroad must be equipped with some common peace medicine and emergency medical supplies, just in case.
Southeast Asian hotels often do not have disposable items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste and slippers for environmental reasons.
The voltage in Southeast Asia hotels is mostly 220V, if it does not match your electrical appliances, you need to bring a converter.
