The Thoughtful Alternative to Hotels and Guest Houses

If you’re thinking of visiting Bangkok, Thailand, for a week or more, you might want to consider the option of renting a vacation house instead of a hotel room or some grungy guest house. Holiday rentals offer generally better accommodation, often feature a pool and other amenities and can accommodate larger groups in comfort.

Here are a few examples of what’s on offer in Bangkok for the savvy traveller, based on a one week rental. You can find many more options for your specific dates on TripAdvisor’s Vacation Rentals search.

Budget option from under $100 per week
