Land in Bangkok: Stay up all night or find a place to crash?

Jump to last reply

I start my vacation trek in Chiang Mai and am landing at midnight in Bangkok from Chicago (12 hour time difference).

With the time change, given landing at midnight, I am thinking at least 2 hours before I would see a hotel room, do I:
a. Hang out at the airport for the 8 am flight to Chiang Mai
b. Crash at a hotel (even though body clock will be at noon time) and then get to final destination later that day (move the flight later in the day)
c. Other

What do you recommend? Ever been through the Bangkok airport? Howz the airport lounge? I'm flying United and Thai airlines.

On the way back, I'll be in Bangkok for a few days. Where are some recommended areas to stay? I don't want to get a car, want to have good access to different things. I saw a post about Ratt/Tong for potential tour guides. I have hotel points with Marriott and Hilton, so those are options as well.

Please advise.

Kim
