I need to keep my bulky winter clothes for 3~4weeks in Bangkok and searched some for this. It seems that the Suvanabhumi Airport has a long term facility but the charge is 100B per day even though it is long term storage. It means 2,100~2,800B. That is too expnesive to me.
I remember there was a storage facilty also in Mocit bus terminal. How much is the long term charge there? What about in the train station? Or other places?

both not a wise choice. Mochit only stores for 5-7 days max. anyway. (dont know what they do with stuff overtime.....
There IS a self-storage, like about any western country nowadays has a plenty, even with some ''bekpek''=not whole room, storage, named Bkk storage and in the Ram IV area beyond the ex Carrefour/Tesco hyperstores. Sorry, dont know about any details here now-go to a decent BKK expat forum like on thaivisa or also tripadvisor., where a billp posts.
Alternative: it also seems to me that nowdays these travelnewbiees dont even know the very basics of travel; about ANY local hotel or guesthse will do storage-sometimes even for free if you come back to stay. Around KhaoSarn tipically 10 bt/day or 50/week. Most newbees have enormous problems with this as they fear all kinds of scams and problems-thats nonsense. I have personally assisted twice in searching left items in such a place that closed down-and we went thru things that had left there for over 5 years-untouched. Seems the problem for non-payment for such a period far exceeds travellers idiot ideas.

Returned from the planned trip and the solution was and is:
Keeping luggage at a lodging facility. In my case, the appropriate facility found was New Joe Guesthouse in the Khao San area, 8 Baht per day!
For your information,
Mochit bus terminal: 40 Baht for one day, The long term possibilty is questionable.
Need to be cautious, "The rooms in the New Joe Guesthouse are generally very small."

Regarding Bangkok Self Storage, do not expect a refund from this company if you return early to pick up your bag! After being told when I dropped off my bag 6 weeks ago that I would get a refund for unused time, today I was told there is no such policy and no refund!
