    Booking a Guest Friendly Hotel While in Bangkok

    Bangkok is an angelic city that will not leave you indifferent. Thai temples and one of the world’s most famous markets are just some of the places where you will create the most beautiful memories. Bangkok is the most visited city in the world. It is more popular than Paris and London for the fourth consecutive year.

    Bangkok is far cheaper than neighboring destinations, such as Singapore. In Bangkok, you can buy everything from pirated DVDs to luxury women’s handbags. It is even clearer now why so many tourists visit it. The tourist season runs from November to April and, this is the perfect time to visit Thailand and avoid the monsoon period that runs from May to October.

    Most of the arrangements start with coming to Bangkok, and sightseeing from the Chao Praia River. Numerous channels for irrigating rice fields have been dug out of the river, and there is an unavoidable water market. There is a lot of traffic on the streets of Bangkok, and the traffic is terrible. When you step into the mall, you move to a completely different world – an air-conditioned haven for those who have come to rest and buy something.

    Bangkok is a city with more than 8 million inhabitants, and its sightseeing requires the use of city transport. Tuk-tuk is a specific open vehicle that is a very interesting way to tour this city. The price for tuk-tuk is relatively low, and this mode of transportation is more cost-effective than taxis.

    Thai tourist centers such as Bangkok and Phuket have plenty of restaurants suitable for tourists. Traditional Thai food is very spicy, and it takes time for foreigners to get used to its taste. Thai local specialties are the best food in this country, whether you order them at the best restaurants or street shops. When it comes to Bangkok, food prices are quite low, and so is the drink. In this country, it is advisable to always have water with you, only the one you buy.

    There are three main options for accommodation in Thailand:

    • Hotels;
    • Guest Houses;
    • Hostels.

    For men traveling alone, the hotel is the best choice, because they offer accommodation at very low prices for European standards and you get everything. 

    If you’re planning on bringing a girl back to your room (and so you should!) then you’ll want to book a guest friendly hotel.

    Check out this list of hotels in Bangkok that are guest friendly and book without any hassles.

    Hostels are also a good option for men traveling alone as this type of accommodation often includes multi-bed rooms, and is not recommended for families. If you come to Bangkok on your own and want to have a great time, then it is best to stay at a hostel in a part of town called the Force, known for its great nightlife. This place is the center of a good time. Local Bangkok whiskey, Mekong whiskey, and Sam Song rum are must-try drinks during Bangkok’s nightlife, with local singers Singa and Singa Gold popular.

    Bangkok’s nightlife is mesmerizing, everyone dancing, laughing, and having fun. Soi Cowboy is a small street with over forty go-go bars and is an ideal place for a man traveling alone and having a good time.

    Bangkok on a Budget

    Is it possible to visit Bangkok on a budget? The simple answer to that is yes, and no. You see, you can still get a budget hotel and eat budget food, but you can also stay at an expensive 5 star hotel and eat at fancy restaurants. So, it’s really up to you.

    To give you an idea, you can get a hostel for just a few dollars a night. You can eat street food for a buck a meal. So, yes, it can be really cheap. If you can tolerate that kind of lifestyle then for sure, you can visit Bangkok on the cheap.

    If you are going to drink alcohol though, that’s where it will start to eat into your budget. Although drinks are pretty cheap at bars and restaurants, when you are drinking sometimes you lose control and end up buying more drinks – it is that easy. So it can really add up.

    You can go to a 711 (which is everywhere I might add) and buy beer there which is quite cheap. That’s your best bet if on a budget but also must drink.

    Transportation

    To get around, the cheapest way is by either the BTS which is an above rail system, the local bus or a motorcycle taxi. If you need to take a regular car taxi, make sure the taxi is metered. If not, they will try to scam you out of your money. Not all taxi drivers do this but you can be guaranteed that you will be charged more than a Thai person. To get the same rate as a Thai person, just make sure the taxi meter is used. They can’t change that so you won’t get ripped off.

    Entertainment

    There is plenty of entertainment in Bangkok depending on what you like. If you like girly bars then you can visit Soi Cowboy or Nana Plaza. Both have a lot of beer bars and go-go bars for you to see. Lots of sexy Thai ladies work there and they are yours to take home if you wish. This will surely kill your budget with these girls because you’ll have to pay.

    If you want to meet girls and not pay for them, you need to get out of the touristy areas. Some places like RCA will have a lot of Thai clubs where mostly the locals go and you won’t find many foreigners there. The thing is the girls are not used to farangs so if you try to pick one up, you better not appear douchey like a lot of foreigners look like there. This is because a lot do go there for the booming sex industry and a lot of Thai women that are not bar girls are aware of this.

    You can also meet girls online. Tinder is very popular in Thailand as well as some other dating sites but you’ll have to pay for those. So just stick to Tinder. Be aware though that some of the hot girls on there are not actually girls but ladyboys. It’s very hard to tell ladyboys apart from real women online in pictures so just read the profile because ladyboys are pretty forthcoming about this. Just be respectful and move on if it is not your cup of tea.

    Rounding Up

    So I hope that this mini guide on Bangkok on a budget was helpful to you. Just remember to deal with Thai businesses only and avoid anything brand name, that way you will save money.
