Bangkok

River View Guest house

I stayed three nights here with my friend, Magali, another fellow backpacker. We took the bus from Siem Reap and crossed over into Thailand- Bangkok. This guest house is not in the centre or near Kao San Road. So for those of you wishing to be amongst other backpackers this is not the place to stay. That said, this is a beautiful guest house and only a ferry ride away from most famous landmarks and sites.

It is large guest room with many rooms and has recently been done up. I shared a room with Magali and it had air-conditioning. The bathrooms are down the corridor and have plenty of hot water. There is a beautiful roof top restaurant and bar. Perfect to chill and lazy around on. The views are amazing and be sure to catch the sunset.

It is situated in a safe part of town, shops and restaurants are within walking distance. Breakfast is not included but can be bought in the restaurant or from cafes nearby. The wifi is also good and there is a computer downstairs for guests.

Overall, enjoyed my stay here, sure it is not packed with backpackers but a nice change and not far from the hassling and bustling city!
