Chatrium Residences booked via Roomorama
Over the new years, I took a 3 day break; my only rest once a year from working 90 hours a week..
Bangkok has always been my great distraction from work. Think good food, beautiful Thai designers, pampering massages and vintage shopping.
My favourite Thai designers are all located at different departmental stores in Thailand.
Pssst, Eight Slate is also stocked in Thailand, Zen Central World, Bangkok.
My Favourite Thai Labels include,
3. Kloset Design
These brands can be shopped at various stores like Central World, Emporium, Siam Paragon etc.
Though slightly on the expensive side ($300-$800), the fabrics used
and intricate handwork justifies the price. Thai designers are known for their
quirky and loud statement style, a stark contrast to Asian style.
I chose a beautiful hotel space over at Chatrium Residences, Sathorn Bangkok booked
through Roomorama. Sathorn is two BTS stops away from Siam, the city area where
the heart of Bangkok is. A quick 8 minute train ride would get you to town.
Or, take an Uber like I did for $3 for a 45 minute journey into town.
The huge difference in time accounts to the fact that traffic is insane in Bangkok.
Over at Chatrium, I started the day every morning with food! No vacation is complete
without a hearty hotel buffet breakfast. Each room comes with 2 breakfast tickets with a huge selection of breakfast goodies ranging from American to Asian cuisines.
Roomorama offers the largest platform for professionally-managed vacation rentals and accommodations worldwide with over 300,000 properties! I always make it
a point to pick places that are not only convenient but also equally aesthetically attractive for a
