One night in Bangkok...



I recently had the opportunity to spent a week with two childhood friends from New York who came to visit me in Thailand.  I’m posting a number of different articles about our adventures, but this article is about our overnight stay at the Tower Hotel at lebua in the “Hangover Suite” (3 Bedroom Luxury suite) on the 55th floor.  It is called the “Hangover Suite” because the lebua Dome restaurants were featured in the movie Hangover II, and the movie cast spent considerable off camera time there.  It deserves to be called that because of just how fantastic a time you can have in it.


Royal Checkup at BNH
Health Issues in Bangkok

arrivalIn late April, 2012 I spent a day at BNH hospital getting a Royal Checkup.  This very thorough examination includes x-rays, ultrasound, a physical exam, full blood and fluids analysis, along with a thorough cardiac workup involving an active stress test.  BNH offers this comprehensive exam at a special price of 17,900 baht.  Other less extensive checkup options are available at prices of 3,900 baht and 6,900 baht.

I arrived at the hospital at 9am.  It was surrounded by a construction fence because of all the work being done remodelling the building exterior.  The interior was undergoing the same treatment in various spots.  The emergency entrance was being used as a general entrance on a temporary basis, but probably by now the construction is finished and things are back to normal.  BNH has been in operation since 1898, but has evolved into one of the most advanced modern hospitals operating in Bangkok today.

Chaiyaphum, Thailand

Barely heard of and even less touristed Chaiyaphum makes the ideal base for nearby stunning national parks.Though not as rich in attractions as its neighbouring provinces, barely heard of and even less touristed Chaiyaphum makes the ideal base for nearby stunning national parks, and has a few worthy spots of its own too. CHRIS WOTTON gets under the skin of this undiscovered slice of Isaan.
