Bangkok Hotels and their areas
Bangkok as a metropolitan city is divided into many areas. We call it "Ket", which means district; this is further divided into "Kwang', which means sub-district. Many times, we call the area by the name of the street.
Each area has a different atmosphere, e.g. population density. Some areas are full of working offices, easy access for mass communication, lots of shopping malls. So the main factor to help you select the hotel is your budget and your preference to the area.
