Important Bangkok travel tip

Traffic in Bangkok can be heavy, especially during rush hour. BTS skytrains are a fast and convenient way to get around the city. The elevated air-conditioned trains run every 5-10 minutes.

The SalaDaeng BTS station is almost right on top of the Silom gay scene. From there, it is two stops to Siam, Bangkok’s main station and shopping hub. Most of our hotel choices are near a skytrain.

Why this hotel?: Walk to the bars & clubs. Superb service. Great value.

The Tarntawan Hotel Surawong (previously Tarntawan Place) has a loyal following of gay travellers who keep on coming back year after year.

The hotel is located in a quiet side street, just moments from the gay bars in Silom, Patpong Night Market and the infamous ‘Soi Twilight’.

The hotel’s comfortable rooms and suites have free WiFi, cable TV and a fully stocked minibar. Room service is available 24 hours.

Why this hotel?: Very central. Great for shopping & gay scene.

Shopping queens take note! The Mercure Bangkok is right near MBK Center, the main shopping area and the Siam skytrain station. Trains go directly to the Silom gay district (just two stops).

The Mercure offers large, stylish rooms with flat screen satellite TV, minibar, coffee maker, free WiFi. There are 3 bars, 2 restaurants, outdoor pool and a gym, though we think the Olympic Club @ Pathumwan Princess would have more eye candies.

If the location is right but the price isn’t, then consider the ibis Bangkok Siam Hotel which shares the same building.
