Preety is a very caring tour guide who help us during our stay in Bangkok. We were in Bangkok last month and after checking various travel message boards, settled on Narrytravel (where we met Preety) to show us around Bangkok. She was absolutely outstanding. She is well educated with a good command of English and this gracious lady went well out of her way to ensure we had a great tour; if she is available, you can't go wrong in our view. Highly recommended.

We stayed for two nights on our way to Koh Samui and Koh Tao. We're a married couple in our 30s and wanted a nice clean with the Thai touch and not expensive.
The Siam Heritage exceeded our expectations. The service was just touching and the rooms are spacious and well-appointed.
The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was lovely with a good hot shower.
The shuttle boat was fantastic. Navigating Bangkok by foot, train, boat or tuk-tuk is a dizzying experience whichever way you slice it. There is so much going on that you soon succumb to stimulation overload. It was so nice to get on our private boat at the end of an excursion for a leisurely cruise back to the hotel.
The hotel is near all the good shopping areas.
Recommended things to do in Bangkok
- Visit the Grand Palace
- Ride the public river boats
- Dine at The Mango Tree (also Vertigo is amazing but very expensive)
- Shop for trinkets, clothing and fake everything at Night bazaar Lumphini and Patpong (the Exotic one)
- Ride the Skytrain
- Visit the rooftop Sirocco bar on the 76th floor at The State towers. A drink would cost you around eight dollars and the Bangkok view is free.
- Get tired at the biggest weekend market in the world - the Chatuchak market.
- Get a good body massage. The genuine Thai massage and spa.
If you must go to MBK shopping centre do NOT take a taxi or tuk-tuk, take the skytrain. The traffic light to enter the mall stays red for 15 min and then is green for 30 seconds (no exaggeration; we waited 45 min at that light).
Right in the midst of a major shopping district is a real piece of Thai-ness - the colourful Erawan Shrine, interestingly dedicated to Brahma rather than Buddha, and complete with incense and Thai dancers. Well worth a detour on the way to the shops. It's open from 6am until 10pm.
Junction of Ploenchit and Ratchadamri Roads (diagonally opposite the Central World Plaza mall); Chit Lom Skytrain station
Quieter than tuk-tuks, more breezy than using the buses, cheap as chips, better sights and smells and much more in tune with what the locals do.
There are stops all the way up and down the river, they come about every five or six minutes most days
