Bangkok is the capital city of and largest urban area in Thailand.
It is known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon (กรุงเทพมหานคร, pronounced [krūŋ tʰêːp máhǎː nákʰɔ̄ːn] (listen)) or simply Krung Thep (About this sound listen), which means "city of angels".
Bangkok is by far the most densely populated city in Thailand with about 12 million people. Bangkok was a small trading post near the mouth of the Chao Phraya River during the Ayutthaya Kingdom in the 15th century. It eventually grew in size and became the site of two capital cities: Thonburi in 1768 and Rattanakosin in 1782.
Because of its strategic location in Southeast Asia, Siam (later Thailand) acted as a buffer-zone between the French and British colonial empires. Bangkok itself has gained a reputation as an independent, dynamic and influential city. Bangkok is the political, social and economic centre of Thailand, and one of the leading cities in Southeast Asia.
Due to the 1980s and 1990s Asian investment boom, many multinational corporations make their regional headquarters in Bangkok and the city is a regional force in finance and business. Its increasing influence on global politics, culture, fashion and entertainment underlines its status as an Alpha global city.
In 2009, it was the second most expensive city in South-East Asia behind Singapore, creating an oasis of calm amid fast paced Bangkok life.

This room was clean and cozy. Tor was super helpful and was nice enough to let us know there was a Chinese New Year celebration going on in Chinatown. We went and had a great time :) I'd highly recommend this B&B.
Emplacement stratégique a 2 pas du BTS et du ferry sur le fleuve.
Chambre grande et très propre, nettoyée tous les jours.
Tor et sa famille sont des hôtes geniaux,accueillant, qui s'interressent aux voyageurs, de bon conseil et toujours prêt a rendre service.
Thank you Tor for your attention and your good advices.
Sure we ´ll come back!
This is a very clean, secure and nicely arranged room with a very very nice and helpful staff. It is located centrally and Tor is absuletely eager to support his guests in any possible way. Absolutely recommendable place to stay.
I had a wonderful experience at Tor's 'Escape'! The room was exceptionally clean and spacious with an excellent wifi connection. The building is very centrally located, close to the skytrain and pier for boat service. It's easy to get anywhere! I chose this location since it was close to the Myamar embassy in order to get my visa. I couldn't have chosen better! I got my visa and easily visited Bangkok from Tor's Escape. Tor is simply fantastic! He is always present, smiling and ready for help and advice. At night he even sent me a txt in thai for the taxi driver in order to return. Tor made my short but intense stay in Bangkok easy, gracious and full of joy. Thank you Tor!
The stay was amazing! The best area I have stayed in bangkok...the best food and variety in this area is unbelievable..a real melting pot!
Tor was an amazing host and was really helpful with directions, recommendations within the area.
The room and hotel was lovely and all in all pretty reasonable for what it was.
This is my second stay at Escape and, just like my first, I totally enjoyed staying here. I shall regard this lovely property as my second home in Bangkok.
To sum it all up - stylish room, great location, warm and helpful host, friendly staff. It doesn't get better than this for the price you pay.
The Escape is definitely a highlight of our stay in Bangkok. Tor and his staff are wonderful - recommending both amazing street food and fancy restaurant, helping us plan our trips and sharing with us interesting life stories. The boutique hotel is in great location, making it easy to go about the city either by skyline or by ferry. The room is clean, quiet and stylish. In all, we love Tor's place and strongly recommend it to anyone who plan to have a stay in Bangkok.
This is in a great location. Only about 3-4 minutes walking to the skytrain and the central pier.The room was very clean with a great A/C. Best part was how easy it was to come back from most of the sites, relax and cool off for a little, and then head back out. Thank you!
My Escape provides an excellently equipped room in a nice neighbourhood, We booked for 2 nights and extended to 4.
1 minute walk from BTS, 5 minutes walk from pier. Neighbourhood has all required amenities - banks, restaurants, shops. The room has clean sheets and towels, a fridge and free wifi. Takes about 20 mins to get to Sukhumvit by BTS.
Super personal service from Tor and his team.Tor took me for an introductory walk around the neighbourhood and was always there for questions and guidance. It was like staying at a friend's house :)
I definitely recommend staying here. Thanks Tor and hope to see you again.
Pretty chilled guys. They'd help you with your questions and the rooms are nice, clean, quiet with air conditioning. Pretty cool place.
