Despite three visits to the city when we were in the region ten years ago we didn’t get to know Bangkok particularly well. Then we stuck to the Khao San Road area each time we made a return, only venturing further afield to tick off the tourist ‘must sees’. On this occasion we haven’t done a thing tourism wise but have extended our range and seen more of the Big Melon by staying in and exploring some of Bangkok’s different neighbourhoods. We found that each has their own advantages and drawbacks.

Thanks to the Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute, Bangkok is a great place to top up on your vaccinations for travelling further afield in Southeast Asia or for future trips to other parts of the world. Even Brits with access to the NHS can find bargain jabs, while Americans can save a small fortune getting their injections in this efficient medical centre.
