The capital city of Thailand and a central transportation point and cultural hub in Southeastern Asia, Bangkok has enjoyed a place at the top of most vacation plans and bucket list. This part of the world hosts many different travelers, from those just passing through to others staying for classes, work, or extended vacations. Bangkok is big and diverse enough to have accommodations for virtually every type of traveler, along with the technology and social media connections to make finding them easy and convenient.

Tourism and Related Services in Bangkok

Even during periods of political unrest, Thailand’s popularity shows no signs of abating. In recent years other nearby nations like Myanmar, Cambodia, and Vietnam are becoming hotspots for visitors, and Bangkok is often used as a base to explore them all as it has the transportation, banking, and consular services that smaller regional cities and other countries still lack. You might need this information to book a flight or hotel in advance. Make sure you know what documentation you need before you travel.

     
  • Airports. There are two major international airports serving Bangkok, Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) and Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK). Shorter, regional flights tend to land at DMK, with global destinations dominating the field at BKK. Check the handy Skyscanner search tool if you need a rental car as well as a hotel for the next part of your journey.
  •  
  • Banks and Exchange Services. Send or receive money at a bank, but don’t exchange it there if you want a competitive rate. Small kiosks or booths away from heavily-touristed areas often have the best prices. Many department stores and hotels will accept foreign currency, but again, the exchange rate is high.
  •  
  • Embassies and Consulates. Don’t let issues with visas or travel permits delay your trip. There are more than 80 foreign embassies and consulates in the city that can provide you with the proper documents and information for your own passport, Thailand, or other neighboring countries.

Types of Hotels in Bangkok

Bangkok is a big metropolitan city with accommodation options to suit everyone. Whether you’re a family of five with a dog or a backpacker with a surfboard, this town has the bed for you. To help narrow down your choices, determine which part of town or type of attraction you find the most interesting, then narrow your options according to budget and time.

     
  • Riverside. This could be the most scenic part of town, home to the city’s most popular luxury hotels, markets and shopping malls. Several renowned attractions are in this neighborhood, including several temples, the National Museum, and the Flower Market.
  •  
  • Transportation. If you’re just passing through, or have a lot to see throughout the region, there are plenty of hotels near the airports, metro lines, and train stations. The BTS and MRT Skytrain lines give you convenient access to everything in town, the suburbs, and even the countryside.
  •  
  • Nightlife. Most of the action after dark takes place in the opulent Sukhumvit neighborhood, which is where you can find the impressive steel facade that decorates the entrance to the Plaza Athenee and the multi-tiered urban playground within the Bangkok Marriott. 

Aside from the usual star system used to rate quality and prices, Bangkok hotels tend to change their prices depending on the season. This popular destination is commonly used as part of a package deal in which travelers can pay for flights, lodging, and even attractions in a convenient bundle.

Bangkok is my all time favourite big city scene. There’s so much to do all the time. You can go anywhere so easily with their transportation options. The culture is like nothing I have ever experienced. The food scene is like nothing I’ve ever experienced. And the city it FULL of attractions, from malls, to historical sites, to temples, to food. The best city of all.
