4 Short Days in Bangkok

Jump to last reply

Starting to fine tune our SEA trip starting with Bangkok.

We arrive in Bangkok at 12:30am. We are staying at the Chatrium Riverside. I have notified the hotel that we have a late arrival and have directions in Thai to the hotel. Considering the late arrival and our likely exhaustion from a long haul trip from Seattle, what is the best way to get to the hotel?

We would also like some advice on how to manage our 4 days (one of which we will be pretty jetlagged!).

It seems as if we should pick out 4-5 sights that will give us a sample of Bangkok with plenty of time to recover from the plane flight and adjust to the heat. We are not shoppers but would like to experience one of the malls for a short period (knowing my husband, a very short period will be stretching mall time). Asiatique is close to the Chatrium, is that a good choice?

We had planned on taking BTS and taxii but are toying with the idea of a driver. Any idea of cost for driver for 4 days?

Appreciate any help figuring this out. Thank you.
