Land of Smiles

Since the girls are off to Bali, the boys are also taking their own holiday. T and D have finally got their shit together and planned their own boy's weekend away. Well I am doing the planning and probably the packing, while they just turn up.

Bangkok is the destination of choice. The hotel rates are really reasonable in the land of smiles, perhaps to boost tourism after the street protests not so long ago.

Conrad Bangkok is having a buy one get one night free, so a room only costs USD 97! Lebua State Tower where Sirocco is, is offering rooms at USD 12o, not bad especially with the views.

During lunch today, our friend said he just got back and stayed at a lovely boutique hotel called Arun Residence.

I checked it online and it looked rather nice. The rates start at USD 107 and the view is breathtaking.

These are the bottom rung Suites but don't they look comfortable ?

and the separate living area with adjoining balcony. What a view !

Even from the bathroom !

They offer split level rooms so bedrooms are upstairs with terraces facing the river and the Temple of Dawn. Nice.
