Thailand and Laos (and Myanmar if I can manage it)

Hello, Sawatdee kaa and Sabai dee,

My next trip will be Thailand and Laos, and this is all about the before, the trip and the after - similar to my Malaysia/Cambodia blog. I am putting together from start to finish - tickets, do's and don'ts, tours, where to stay, places to see, things to do, as well as useful extras like transport, good places to eat, what to wear, climate, tourist traps, tricks and tips and whatever else I can think of that will be useful.

If you have any tips or advice, please, feel free to leave a comment and add your bit - whatever you think may be helpful or interesting.

12. Merry V Guesthouse

Bangkok Accommodation The Merry V Guesthouse
The third in the series of suggested accommodation places in Bangkok. Have heard if you want something nice at Merry V, you need to get a room in the back part. The rooms in the front section are a bit tired looking plus they only have share bathrooms. Also, I've been advised to pay for an air conditioned room as the ones with fans are hot and stuffy. They are larger rooms and the price difference so I'm told is around 300 baht.

The service personnel is reported to be friendly and helpful and you should take your own padlock for your room as there have been reports of theft.
The location is very good, being only a short walk to Khao San Road, but the amenities sound pretty basic.
33 Chana Songkram, Bangkok
T: (02) 282 9267;

Room rates:

Double fan share bathroom - 200 baht
Dobule fan private bahtroom - 400 baht
Single fan share bantroom - 140 baht
Single fan private bantroom - 250 baht

Single air-con private bathroom - 350 baht, that's AUD$11.92 per night
Double air-con private bathroom - 500 baht which is AUD$17.05 per night.
Triple fan share bathroom - 270 baht
Triple fan private bathroom - 450 baht
Triple air-con private bathroom - 600 baht

If I do decide to stay here at the Merry V, then I would either get a single with air-con and private bathroom, or a double with air-con and private bathroom.

Mind the stairs!
One young chap said he had to go up three lots of stairs.
