After 4 months of waiting, Hotel Indigo Wireless Road Bangkok has officially launched! Amanda and I went back to Bangkok a few weeks ago to finally document our stay and experience there, and let’s just say, we’re coming back for more. We were also there for the official opening launch party for the hotel, and Hotel Indigo pulled out all the stops – we had drinks, tapas, and a customised tram tour around Wireless Road. We also befriended the lovely and gorgeous Cecilia Ngan – also known as @no7 on instagram.
Situated a 3-minute walk away from Phloen Chit BTS Station, and a 10-second walk away from ice blended Thai Milk Tea from Cafe Vista, Hotel Indigo Wireless Road Bangkok is situated in a great location that makes traveling around Bangkok so easy and quick. A 2-minute walk down the BTS Station are actually tons of street stalls (pictured above) you can check out.
Where to Eat
Apart from easy access to taxis, tuk-tuks and the BTS, Hotel Indigo is also situated next to amazing food haunts like thai homestyle-food restaurant Baan Glom Gig located just a 5-minute walk away, or Soi Polo Chicken – possibly the best fried chicken in Bangkok – a 15-minute walk away from the Hotel. If you’d like to travel out a little further for authentic thai cuisine, you can try Cabbages & Condoms (no, seriously, this is a restaurant), which Amanda brought me to, an experience you um, have to see for yourself, and no the food is not served on condoms, it’s just a restaurant set up by the Population and Community Development Association of Bangkok to inform and encourage people to use protection! You can also try the restaurant at Sala Rattanakosin for the amazing view of the Chao Phraya River and the Temple of Dawn (pictured above). If you’re craving desert, don’t forget to check out After You desert cafe, they have several locations around Bangkok, we went to the one at Thong Lor.
Where to Go
As we were there during the weekend, you have to visit Chatuchak Weekend Market. We had intended to go to the floating markets at the outskirts of Bangkok, but we didn’t have enough time!
I hope this second blog post on my travel experiences in Bangkok have helped you! My recent two trips were really short – 3 Days 2 Nights – so this blog post is not meant to be exhaustive or entirely comprehensive. If you have any other places to recommend do leave a comment down below, I’d love to hear from you!
