    I am traveling with more luggage than I would like. I am staying in Thailand for at least 6 months and I plan to visit the neighboring countries, spend 2 weeks each. I don't want to drag all the luggage with me and don't want to keep paying for a room while I travel around.
    Is there a safe luggage storage in Bangkok?

    Quite a few hotels will store luggage for you if 1) you stay with them and 2) stay with them when you come back. Most I've dealt with do this free of charge.

    Thanks Tilapia. I would prefer to rent a locker, I will do what you suggested as a last resort. I did some searching in the forum and came up with http://bangkokselfstorage.com/ .

    Please let me know how bangkokselfstorage works for you as I had a similar issue on my recent trip to Cambodia and Thailand and this would be a nice fix for my next trip in a few months... !

    BTW: I read somewhere that you could not store electronics -- no laptops for instance. I'm guessing its not an actual locker. I've done this in Hong Kong and its just a storage area locked up at night.

    One--short-term--option I used in the past was the luggage storage at Suvarnabhumi Airport. If you fly in/out, you can leave bags directly with them quickly and safely for a decent, daily rate. Though, I can't remember exactly the amount (40B/day-maybe?). It's great for short term travel, but that would get to be quite expensive in the long-term.

    Khao san rd also has storage unit options, but I would be more concerned about safety issues there.

    Keep doing some digging online, and you should be able to track down a cheap/safe/easily accessible storage unit somewhere in BKK.

    Just to clarify for n8sand, storage at the airport is 100thb/24 hours. http://www.bangkokairportonline.com/node/134

    Not sure if you are going to Phuket but you can leave your luggage at My Storage www.mystorageasia.com they have lockers which can fit a lot and you can store your valuables because you will hold the key to your locker and it comes with insurance. Hope this helps.
