Where I stayed
HOTEL. Orchid Resort is one among the cheapest hotel in Bangkok considering that its location is near in the airport. I arrived late, so I never saw their representative in arrival gate door 3. I have not printed out the hotel voucher but when I arrived in the hotel, it seems that they already prepared it for me. The hotel staffs are well trained. The check out time is 12 noon, so I paid additional THB300 because I will check out 3pm.
My room is in the 5th floor and the building has no elevator. The stairs are so narrow to walk for two person. Anyway the room boy carried my baggage and he's lucky for it's not heavy. I have a good room overlooking the hotel ground and a market. I have also good spot for the hotel's small swimming pool
Another, I was confused on the sliding door in the receiving area. One time, I misoperate it and lucky that there are children playing near and using the door.
Breakfast is American style with coffee. One restaurant staff humbly offered me for a city tour (with fee of course) but I declined because I already visited some spots with my wife and we'll visit other and remaining spots together.
"Amazing Thailand" and I was amazed. For me, living in Thailand is so easy and the people are good and honest. Accommodation here is comparatively cheaper than in Manila. Street foods are healthier and cheaper too. Tourist spots are so many and need more days to visit them all. Taxi drivers are honest but only the problem for us as tourist is language.For "tuktuk',they asked higher and mostly expensive than a taxi. I rather say that "tuktuk" is only good for first experience but choose taxi for a comfortable ride.
I don't know when will be the next time to visit this place again! I finally left Bangkok at 18:40pm with Sri Lankan Airlines.
