accommodation for family during songkran

Posted by melmariet on 11/3/2013 at 08:35

Hello!
We are looking for some accommodation for a group during songkran, we have been looking around but lots of rooms are already booked / dont offer multiple beds. Not picky about a/c, pools etc.. but would like something spacious. Any advice? Agoda does not allow searching by number of breeds, so I'm over whelmed..
Are there other web sites for Thailand?

It would help if you specified WHERE in Thailand you intend to be during Songkran.

Check out http://www.asiarooms.com/en/thailand/index.html and http://www.sawadee.com.
How many in your family? Most rooms have two beds and sleep 3 or maybe 4 if small kids. Otherwise consider to get two rooms side-by-side. Room bookings for Songkran in Chiang Mai are already filling up quickly so you may need to compromise. Same goes for transport to CM before and away after. Book flights if possible.

Do you have any ideas for how to book transit to cm from Bangkok if your not in town?

Trains during Songkran are already full so forget that. Check out http://www.thaiticketmajor.com/index_eng.php for booking bus tickets. Otherwise book a flight on Air Asia, Nok Air, Thai Airways, Bangkok Airways, etc.

A lot of hotels count 12yos as adults and will charge extra.

Anyone who wants to spend single nights, or weeks or short-long terms in Bangkok I hardly recomend to contact those guys from Spain, they live in Bangkok and they owned four contimous apartments, they are also very kind and open-mind to discuss even the rates. I just spent one week there and I'm preatty sure that i'll repeat it. Everything is very clear no missunderstoods, they speak very good english and are always ready to give you info. or help in anyway. Those apartments are fully furnished with all sort of comodities, ....don't hesitate to contact them.

CHECK IT OUT IN THEIR FACEBOOK MORE INFO.
