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.

Phuket’s main attraction is its beaches, and one of its main sources of revenues is tourism. In our opinion, tourism drove up a lot of the prices in Phuket — with the influx of tourist, the local entrepreneurs (i.e.: taxi operators, restaurants, etc.) have put a premium on basic necessities such as transportation and food. However, tourism dictates the price quite a bit.
To illustrate, below are the taxi fares that we paid per kilometer for each city we visited — Chiang Mai, Bangkok and Phuket:
The distance between Chiang Mai International Airport and Siripanna Villa Resort & Spa is 7.5km and we paid only THB150 (negotiated from THB200), this gives us THB20 per kilometer.
