~:[CH7 - Day 173]:~ A Day In
I spent my day in this monstrous hotel in the middle of Bangkok. It's a nice place and when you wait for the sale, you can also get a good deal. They tried to get me to spend a little bit more with early check in, free breakfast, and and upgraded floor, but I opted to wait and still got to check in 10 minutes later, got three days of breakfast but stayed on the same floor (probably the same room though). I've penny punched a bit more in Bangkok, as my day in today, only had me head out for lunch across the street at Terminal 21, as I did my laundry. It was quite the scene as I made four clotheslines out of what I had in the room and hung up a bunch of my other clothes. It was a nice enough hotel, where I had what I needed to do a good job cleaning plus be able to dry a weeks worth of clothes. It was nice to lounge around and hang out and I even got a quick visit from a friend. Regardless, if you're ever planning to travel to Thailand, it's not the best weather, but this time of year (which is usually the rainy season) is the less busy season and you'll find much better rates this time of year. It also tends to be less crowded, but if you're in a touristy spot, you're probably always going to see crowds. In any case, I kicked up my feet, put on my do not disturb sign and relaxed as I waited for my clothes to dry. I guess instead of watching paint dry, I watched my clothes dry, but I guess, it was a needed day of rest and relaxation.
