Where to Stay
Last but not least, any suggestions of decent hotels/accomodation would be extremely helpful! We are particularly looking for someplace
- convenient to airports
- convenient for local businesses
- appropriate to host a business breakfast
- well-wired (i.e, broadband!)
The Ambassador is next door to my condo and seems like a good option. If not the Ambassador, it is important to get somewhere near a BTS station (preferably near both the BTS Skytrain and MRT Underground -- by Asoke BTS and Sukhunvit MRT would be ideal) so peoplee can avoid the traffic -- StuartBishop
The Sheraton Sukhumvit will be the place place for business meeting and enjoy the city of Bangkok. It has Skytrain and Subway station only 5 step walk and best Thai resturant in the hotel. check this out Sheraton
Got some press coverage for you guys - http://bangkokpost.net/Database/11Jan2006_data07.php. Hope this helps! The Bangkok Post is actually a physical paper newspaper, BTW, and of course, I'll look forward to meeting up and interviewing you when you guys are in Thailand.
