The Best Hotels in Bangkok, Thailand

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to stay in Bangkok, both international luxury and boutique choices.

Our Team to Bangkok are two professional travelers who lives in Thailand.

Welcome to Bangkok, the City of Angels, and welcome to the River of Kings, the Chao Phraya River – this waterway is the main transport artery through the whole city.

Bangkok is a city of contrasts with action at every turn. Marvel at the gleaming temples, catch a tuk-tuk along the bustling Chinatown or take a longtail boat through floating markets.

Another Bangkok highlight is food, from local dishes served at humble street stalls to haute cuisine at romantic rooftop restaurants.

Luxury malls compete with a sea of boutiques and markets, where you can treat yourself without overspending. Located prominently in front of Siam BTS Skytrain station is Siam Paragon, an immensely popular shopping mall housing a host of international high-end fashion brands, and a comprehensive selection of world cuisine.

The largest mall in Thailand and among the largest in the world is CentralWorld. This mega-shopping complex offers one of the most exciting shopping experiences in Bangkok. It has everything from brand name clothing boutiques, funky fashion, high-tech gadgets and designer furniture to imported groceries, a line-up of banks, beauty salons and gourmet eateries.

Bangkok has it all, and it is cheap, so come on and shop and enjoy until the dark fall on, then you can continue at the night-markets. Bangkok never ceases to amaze.

Currency is Baht (THB).
