Grand Swiss Sukhumvit 11 by Compass Hospitality is located right off Sukhumvit Road and is just a few steps away from the Nana BTS Station in Bangkok. Don’t be confused when you try to Google this hotel though because it also goes by some other different names: Grand Swiss Hotel Bangkok, Hotel Grand Swiss Sukhumvit, Grand Swiss Sukhumvit, Grand Swiss Hotel, etc. At the end of the day, it’s THAT Grand Swiss at 155/23-24 Sukhumvit Soi 11.

We were lucky enough to have our room upgraded for free again during our stay in Bangkok! And, again, as always, we very much enjoyed our stay.

Sawadika! Hubby and I decided that to better understand the culture of Thailand, we need to visit one of the oldest cities of the country. We chose the ancient city of Sukhothai — the cradle of Thai civilisation, very first capital of Thai Kingdom and designated as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites in 1991. And the name Sukhothai literally means “dawn of happiness.”

Sukhothai Historical Park is 427km north of Bangkok. Normally, tourists who want to visit the Park would stay in Phitsanulok — one of the oldest cities of Thailand and the birthplace of King Naresuan who freed his people from the Burmese colony in the 16th century — and do a 2-hour drive from Phitsanulok to Sukhothai. Or some who stay in Bangkok, would take a flight straight to Sukhothai in the morning, and come back to Bangkok at night (Bangkok Airways operates 2 flights per day). However, due to time constraint, we opted to stay in Chiang Mai and take a 4-hour drive to Sukhothai instead.
