Apartment or Guest House in Bangkok?

by cterao

Hey everyone,

My girlfriend and I are going to be traveling to Thailand for about two months this autumn. Most of the time will be spent in Bangkok. We're not particularly rich or anything so we're looking to do this as cheaply as possible.

Anyway, do you think it would make more sense to rent an apartment in the city (+/- 10,000 Baht per month) or should we just stay at a guest house (which it seems would cost about the same)?

Is there any advantage to an apartment over a guest house or vice versa?

Thanks for any comments.

With a guest house/small hotel you can leave when you want to. An apartment may require a contract locking you in. Don't lease an apartment sight unseen! Your apartment could be next to a noisy karaoke place or in an area that makes walking late at night a little risky.

With apartments you also may have some charges for water and electricity use. Know ahead of time if you have A/C, wifi, squat toilets, hot water, etc. With a hotel room you can shut the windows and keep road noises out and crank up the A/C plus use lots of hot water.

Why only Bangkok for 2 months? Other cities may offer more for the same price. For Bangkok I would want to be close to a Skytrain stop.

Verify that you can stay for 2 months.

Good luck.

apartment if fully furnished can have more room than a guest house and more privacy , plus there are cooking facilities. Check out the apartment first before committing. I rented one and liked it at 7,000 with utilities included. Cheers Tommy x

There are many guest residences that are available on a monthly basis with kitchens. I would prefer a short term apartment or guest residence to a guest house unless you have access to a kitchen. on the other hand if you like eating out then Bankgok and the rest of thailand is quite cheap. about $1.00 for noodle soup and same for fried chicken and a host of other dishes. But street food may have elastics, critters, unclean water, etc.

I'll also add that, for an apartment, you're more likely than not required to pay a security deposit. Perhaps equal to 1 month's rent. If you're a bit short on cash, that could be an issue for you.

If you do want to stay in an apartment, consider a sublet. Perhaps you can find one at http://bangkok.craigslist.co.th/sub/ or http://www.ajarnforum.net/vb/houses-apartments-and-condos/

I hope you find a comfortable and safe place to stay while you enjoy your visit.

When you get get to Grand Palace

by kylian74

This is the view when you get in from the fist entrance into the Grand Palace, clean and greeny green big trees. They say that without seeing the grand palace while you are in Bangkok is.....you've never been to Bangkok.

And the other one:This most...

by suraphona

and the other one:
This most interesting fullday tour takes you to the
rural floating market of Damnoen Saduak situated 110
kms west of Bangkok. The tour should included a visit to Nakorn Pathom, site of the highest Chedi in Thailand called 'Phra Pathom Chedi' which is the largest pagoda in Southeast Asia. Take Lunch will at the picturesque Rose Garden country resort. Afterwards you should attend the Thai village show which gives you an introduction into Thai life. You will witness ordination into monkhood, fingernail dance, Thai boxing, hilltribe dance, sword- fighting, elephants at work and folk dancing.

Young Ladies Preparing for a Dance contest

by listenandlearn

This was in a small little town in the outskirts.
This is a dance contest and these ladies were waiting for their names to be announce and they were to do a bit of Thai Dancing, which is indeed quite interesting.

Zip-off pant legs.

by irvbur

If you're planning to visit any Buddist Temple (why else would you go?) it's a good idea for men to bring zip-off pants/shorts. They don't allow shorts, and it's too hot to wear long pants during the day. I wish I did it sooner.
