Spent a leisurely week in Bangkok enroute from home in Australia to home in Copenhagen. Would recommend the Siri Sathorn hotel because of its downtown location and spacious layout with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, efficient Internet and personal chef service for breakfast each morning. It was surprisingly difficult to find tailors specializing in women's clothing but found by chance a good dressmaker hidden behind some shop fronts just minutes from my hotel.
Best day was spent riding a golf cart around The Ancient City and most surprising were the huge monitor lizards that roamed the park near our hotel. Asiantique was certainly not as well priced as the Chatuchak weekend market but more pleasant to walk around when catching the breezes off the river. Used the river bus for major sites such as the Grand Palace and Buddha sites and with summer heat and humidity looming this was definitely the more comfortable choice.
