review of Malaysia Guest House, Bangkok, Thailand

Hotel/Hostel Review: Malaysia Guest House, Bangkok, Thailand

After being castigated for walking into the first place I found and paying over our budget at the disappointing Sri Bumphen Plus, Deirdre resolved straight away to show me the error of my ways. I might point out here that, sure, she paid less but only tried one place too, walking around the corner to the Malaysia and negotiated the 500thb rate down to 450thb if we stayed three nights and didn't go mad with the aircon, plus a 200 thb key deposit.Read More

Travelling has never hit us so hard before. Perhaps we are getting too old for this?Read More

Jesse Logister: Why I Live in Bangkok

Though a loyal, honest and hard working employee, Jesse Logister didn't always feel appreciated in his jobs as a cleaner of trains, mail man, factory worker, sales person, and airport luggage handler, so he escaped the 9 to 5 to Thailand and a job online.Read More
