Going home is always the worst bit of traveling. Yes I was looking forward to seeing everybody but after a hard two weeks of moving around Thailand and some epic parties, a 24 hour trip back to the UK was not filling my with excitement!
I decided to spend my last two days in my favourite place in Bangkok, Khao San Road. This backpacker haven and crazy street has everything I could want to see out my final days in Bangkok. Cheap, amazing Thai food, market stalls that sell everything you could ever want and crazy bars and clubs. I was tired though. Tired from all the partying and 10 hour buses I had been doing. I needed some rest before my long trip home. So when Villa Cha Cha, a beautiful boutique hotel 2 minutes walk from Khao San Road, invited me to stay with them, I jumped at the chance. Located on Tani Road, the road just parallel to Khao San it is a perfect central location with an amazing relaxing bar and pool area.
When we arrived we were treated like 5 star guests. The rooms start at just 1200 THB for two people, that is just £12 each and are amazing. The bed was huge and so comfy. The room had air con, cable TV and the cleanest, hottest shower I have had in Bangkok.
The decor was beautiful. Authentically Thai and superbly designed. It is so clean, light and airy.
I managed to top up my tan by the pool for an hour the day before I flew home, this is very hard thing for a backpacker to do in a city like Bangkok.
The food was AMAZING. Backing on to a restaurant that sold both Thai and western food, the smell of fresh pasta made me want it for breakfast. Well it was 11am by the time I got up from my comfy, king sized bed. When you are next in Khao San try the pasta!
The WiFi was a little slow in the room but the lounge area downstairs is so comfy and quiet. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the reception is open 24/7 in case you need anything. This was the perfect place for me to end my trip. If you are in Bangkok and fancy something a bit more luxuious than a dorm bed I cannot recommend Villa Cha Cha Highly enough!
