Hit it hard and fast. Forget that soft approach to Bangkok, unless you have a medical condition or are a geezer. Bangkok is a fabulous city that should be explored full tilt.

Mercy-Tong should be paid in cash.

Mercy, if you are interested in Face, look at the website Click on Bangkok then click on spa. You will see the whole spa menu with prices.

Also, Tong's prices are listed on her website,

Travelers checks are a bit of a pain to deal with. I use ATMs to get cash, starting with the one in the baggage claim area in the airport.

get in contact with Tong and ask for Tom as your guide...he will
take care of you in BKK and environs. Used Tong/Tom for nearly a week in Nov 2008.

Thanks for the comments. I must be doing sometig wrong--I clicked on the site which Katie listed for Ton and got nothing that looked like what I wanted. I put in the in a Search and this was also not helpful. Perhaps someone can suggest another way to do this. I have never had a problem with other searches. Any ideas??? ciao! mhm

Hi Angie,I think that you are trying to do too much in 3 days.First your hotel.I recomend the Pathunum Princess,as it is alongside the MBK centre and there are tailors outside the door.Secondly most businesses dont open till 10.00 certainly MBK doesnt and then first stop a tailor and you wont get away from there till midday.While waiting for your husband have a massage there.Afternoon at leisure but probably not enough time for Palace.Day 2 Tongs tour wherever and 2nd suit fitting.that.Day 3 what time is your flight out and 3rd fitting and pick up suits.If you have time do the dinner cruise on the river one night.Have a nice busy trip/ Don.
