$5 Versus $1000 Hotel

Bangkok

One of the great things about Bangkok is the sheer variety of experiences available at different price points! I thought it would be fun to compare how much a nights stay will set you back at a few different places in Bangkok, from simple hostels to fancy five star luxury! All prices are for a sample one night stay on 31 October this year and converted to USD.
