The Bangkok Kingdom

Our next destination is Bangkok. We didn't take any flights to Thailand this time. Instead we took the train followed by an overnight bus from Chiang Mai to Bangkok. It was a comfortable double decker bus with drinks, meals and snacks provided. I have never felt so comfortable taking a long distance bus especially when traveling over night. May be it was because it was with the companion of my family. I used to travel overseas alone and usually I need my Mp3 player and camera to accompany me. This time, I don't have the opportunity to play with them during the whole journey. 
Bangkok needs to further introduction. It's a city of lots and lots of happening and attractions. They have everything there from Mega Malls, shopping's, attractive architectures, famous Buddhist temples, good food, massage parlors and go go bars. It is the hub for most of the commercial and economical activities of the Kingdom. Whilst Taxi fares are very reasonable, most of the sightseeing can be reached by Skytrain (BTS) or Underground train (MRT). Sight seeing, shopping, food and accomodation can easily be found in the city of Bangkok. A few interesting places where one should not miss whilst in Bangkok is the Silom Street, Pat Pong, Sukhumvit Road, Siam Square, China Town, Khao San Road and the Grand Palace.
Sunflower Place,
39/17-19 Soi Anuman-Rajdhon,
Surawong Road, Bangkrak,
Bangkok 10500.

Sunflower Place is a budget hotel closed to the city and a walking distance to Silom, Pat Pong and the BTS sky train station Sala Daeng Exit and MRT Silom. It is comfortable, clean, new and feel safer with wifi facilities
