Hi, I'm looking for a place to stay in Bangkok, and also looking to purchase a set of jerseys for my football team. A friend of...
...mine who has been there, pointed me to this place near the Stadium where they specialize in jersey printing etc. Problem is, he can't remember the name of the places, as they are all in thai. I have been recommended the Diamond City Hotel to stay in, as its quite near(walking distance, i hear) to the jersey printing shops. Any help with that? Thanks in advance.
Province: Krung Thep
Living in Singapore you shouldn't be too weary about Bangkok. Hotel today no problems (all are half empty),
depending upon budget. Right now you will find very good rates.
Chatuchak (weekend) market is a good idea (very big to find
the right stuff)
Another try is the LUMPINI NIGHT BAZAR on Rama IV Rd from
dark till late night; and YES ... bargain, bargain, bargain
up to 50%
Visitors should take care not to confuse Rajamangala with the BTS Skytrain station also called 'National Stadium', which is adjacent Suphachalasai National Stadium. Rajamangala is not accessible by Skytrain or MRT train.
However, as it is located next to Ramkhamhaeng University, BMTA buses frequently run routes past the stadium.
(Attached the link that yr hotel is located near the National Stadium)
Your friend was right, jerseys especially for a team or bulk screen orders can be found nearby National Stadium. The Stadium is closed to MBK shopping mall, BTS station "National Stadium". This area just located on Siam Square. Once you get off you will see the stadium from station, go there thru the alleys walk for a while you may find it. It used to be many shops for FB team clothes, but I am not sure how many are remained nowadays.
For accommodation, depends on your budget. You may find on plenty websites and then book. Tourist areas are Silom, Sukumvit, Siam. Kaosarn is famous backpacker area and closed to historical sites, Grand Palace, temples, and river bank.
You can live at the Diamond Hotel but I can helped you a little only for the Jerseys that I have a factory in bkk. but I have to notify you when I getting any information from the factory on the price quote.
Pls personal call me in next 3 days for the jerseys detail such as :size , cloth @ Tel : +66854800348.
You need to be in Pratunam district. Diamond City Hotel is one of the many. Bayoke tower, Amari Watergate, East-Inn etc etc are all close to this "textiles district". You will find here many shops selling jerseys but also textile printing service.
easy to reach by the skytrain (BTS)
-the other area is Huamark Sport Statium
try 'n check it out
have a nice trip in BKK !!!
If you want budget hotel around there, Reno Hotel in Soi Kasemsan 1 is good for it's location. Near BTS, MBK and Siam area. Convenience is the best description for this place....
Have fun shopping !!!
Pathumwan Princess Hotel : would have been the ideal since the hotel exit is MBK Hall. Imposssible to get lost there.
Design Hotel & Spa : easy access to BTS station at National Stadium
Novotel Siam Square : easy access to Royal Bangkok Sport Club (RBSC), National Stadium, Boxing Stadium, Cinema, Shopping.
are you confused already? Guess that the many recommended places do not make it easier for you to find the right place. Just pick one, they will all suit you. I would try prathumwan, near the Bayoke Hotel (Tower 2). I stayed there a few years ago, it is the tallest building in Bangkok, hard to miss. Nice to have breakfast on the 74th floor, the rooms are ok. Prathumwan market is around the corner.
What you can also do: if you work for a big company that has a branch in Bangkok (or if you know somebody working for one), try to get in contact with the marketing department. They have contacts already and you might get a better deal using their connections.
Please make sure you check some different offers, the prices may vary a lot.
Best regards and good luck
however if your trip isn't all business and you want some fun. you should rent a room on Kao San Rd. the rates are in your budget and there is so much to see during the day or night. lots of shopping and I'm sure if you ask around you might get put on the right path, most of the vendors down there speak english as it is very touristy. my friends and I call it "channel KS".
my original plan was to go there and "ask around".
two thumbs up to this great site and its members. =)
You can also ask the smaller store keepers in MBK and they may have personal friends or connections for the jersey makers/printers in the area. Please bargin your price as this can differ greatly.
Happy visit to you.
As to where you wanna stay,i would say Khao Sarn Road is the street to go.there are so many small budget hotels,even backpackers lodging places.
good luck and enjoy Thaiand!
The resonable hotel which is just the walking distance to the shop is the Twin Tower Hotel. You may make the advance booking through the travel agency from your country with the discount rate and ABF. Here is also the website:-
Don't forget to bring the sample of your team's logo along ! Good Luck and welcome to Thailand.
well, enjoy your shopping!!
I highly recommend you stay in this hotel.
