This travel post is written by May and she blogs at A Million Little Echoes. She spent 4 days in Bangkok over the May Day weekend with her petite travellers Ewan (3 years) and Faye (1 year). Be warned that this is a kids-centric trip and every day was filled with activities only for Ewan and Faye's pleasure. It was a VERY TIRING trip (for the parents) but your children will thank you for it.
First off, allow me to share our experience on the accommodation we had chosen for this trip. We spent 3 nights in a 5-star (self-acclaimed luxury) business hotel and it fits the bill to Centrally-Located, Family Friendly and Affordable Rates!
GRANDE CENTRE POINT RATCHADAMRI is indeed a business hotel but ironically, houses children entertainment that surpasses all that we've experienced in the aforementioned international brands. Ours was a Grand Deluxe, their basic category, which is fully equipped with a mini kitchen and dining room. We were provided with a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, stove, pots and pans, utensils, washer/dryer and water boiler. Basically, we are ready to cook up three meals for little Faye who is a fussy eater!

If you have been longing for a trip to the land of smiles but shelved it because it just seems impossible to lug the kids, you've every reason to convince the husband now. ;)
