W Bangkok (March 2015)

By

Hotel

The W Bangkok is an amazing hotel in the centre of town and I just love the place. I stayed there last year (you can check out my review here), so I won’t go into too much detail as the room is similar to the one I stayed in last time. But I have provided some pictures this year on the breakfast and my ride in a Took Took (below).

Room

The comfy hotel bed is a joy to come back to each night!

Hotel mini-bars are the greatest source of great temptation….

The luxurious bath with a deep soaking tub and rainforest shower is a real treat!!

Pastries galore!!! I had a chestnut danish which was simply delightful!

Beautiful poached eggs with smoked salmon on a soft plush bun.

W Lounge

Of course at the end of the day there is nothing better than unwinding with a glass of Chianti with some caramelised peanuts.

Took Took 

I normally live a pretty unadventurous travel life. I am not about experiencing local cultures, but I did take a Took Took through Bangkok. Okay it was only like a 20 minute ride, but I actually did it! The experience was nice but I think I’ll stick with the standard sedan in the future.
