Bangkok hotels range from luxury international chains to one-off boutiques with only a few rooms. However, choosing the one that lives up to your expectations depends on the purpose of your visit. Business travellers will feel right at home at one of the high-end hotels in Ploenchit-Chidlom and Sukhumvit areas. Visitors who come to shop might want to stay in Siam, where glittering mega-malls are just a few steps away from several hotels. Khao San and Silom are popular for Bangkok’s pulsating nightlife.

If culture and history is a major part of your trip, then book accommodation close to the riverside for easy access to the Old City’s attractions. These include impressive landmarks like Wat Arun, the Grand Palace and Wat Pho.
