I have actually lived in Bangkok for a while now, but decided to mix things up and give something new a try. I am SO happy that I did. I saw a side of this city that I, even having lived here myself, have never seen!
First off the bars are super cool. A rooftop bar, beer pong (I didn't even know Thailand had beer pong) and then a secret bar I never would have known even existed. I was blown away that I've been here, even been to the same area, and never knew anything about these places. I thought I had local knowledge, but our guide had some next level intel on this place.
Which brings me to the guide, D. She was the glue that held this amazing experience together. She honestly made the entire thing feel like we were just a group of friends hanging out in Bangkok together. She was cracking jokes, getting people involved, and helping us out (I think she even helped a dude book a flight!). She was easily the best host I've had on Air B&B, and that's saying a lot.
Recommending this experience is an understatement. If you want to make the most of your time in Bangkok, whether you've been here before and especially if you've never been, then you NEED to let D show you the way. It'll be the best decision you make on this trip, I promise.
