Bangkok offers a dizzying array of accommodations, from low-cost backpacker hostels to ultra-luxurious, five-star hotels. Begin your search by selecting an area to serve as your home base. If you're a first-time visitor to Bangkok, there is no choice: you'll want riverside digs with easy access to the myriad of transportation options offered along the Chao Phraya River. Head to Sukhumvit if you'd prefer the newer part of the city, but be sure to stay north of Soi Asoke; a red-light district is to the south. For all you shopaholics and those who desire quick access to the SkyTrain, the best option is a hotel in Siam Square and Pratunam. A bevy of upscale hotels may be found in Sathon. And, finally, for those simply looking for something clean and cheap, seek refuge among the backpackers along Khao San Road.
