    LOL. OK - not lived there for nearly 20 years - and only occasional short business trips there since.

    ^ I stayed at Yotel, which was about 5k a night.

    Tiny rooms but a funky comfy electric bed and bathroom blinds, good breakfast, pool and right next to Orchard Road, which is where those gardens thst Cyrille mentioned are. Some nice bars for hunting head and restaurants there too. Its very close to the metro also for access to airport and wherever

    As for flights, look at Scoot, they fly from Swampy, a Singapore budget airline that look like they use Air Asia's old planes

    Scoot/AirAsia/Jetstar is about 4K baht return

    18K for a hotel for three nights seems a lot.

    Depends how flash it is, of course.

    I'd do it all yourself HH..

    On booking.com that hotel is less than 4k a night for the dates you want- early December,Jan or Feb.

    So less than 12,000 baht for your hotel. You just have to find flights that are cheaper than 7,000 baht each return to beat Expedia.
    Look on Scoot and Air Asia websites and mobile apps and you will easily do that.

    The Carlton Hotel is only 0.3km away from that Mercure and 4k more expensive over the 3 nights.

    If you book yourself rather than Expedia you would be able to stay there in Jack Meoff style luxury

    Is it just me...or is that bed built for the vertically challenged? Seems very short. Maybe it's just the angles...

    ^^ I reckon it's a foldable sort of rack. The room is so small that when the bed is in the down position one can't open or close the door.

    Since I'm such a health nut, I'm not often in close proximity to hospitals.

    thanks D and everyone,in over 35yrs.of holidays I have never had a problem booking,me and mrs.headhunter found it so easy to book anywhere,but all I have found so far is prices quoted in either aus.dols.or sng.dols.then there is 7% & 10% tax to add.
    I did find flights from dmkk.singapore air 9.45am.4,000bht.that suits us fine,so can we book the hotel direct,if so that is also fine.
    as I cant get about like I used to,advice on TD. says get a HOP-ON-OFF TKT. china town & little india I will look no further for food.

    seems my brain doesn't work like it used to,cant find where I got the cost of the flights from,its a bit more than I thought I saw.
    did find a quote for ROYAL PLAZA ON SCOTTS RD.about 13,000bht.so I will have to look at agoda.or get my influential person to do the honours.
