Slept with family in Latkrabang

Home - Travel stories - Bangkok - Slept with family in Latkrabang

The first 15 years we have gone to Thailand we slept at Pia's parents in Latkrabang. It was for Tom a bit difficult get used to at first.

The house is spacious, many people are living there. But there are almost no facilities that you are used to in the Netherlands, and that you expect in a hotel. The house is on two sides almost completely open, and it is buld half above a khlong. In the evening, the mosquitoes are having a good time.

If you have once accepted that it is as it is, it's a reasonable place to stay. That is mainly because it is very cozy, all the family together.

Since about 2003 we slept at Pia's sister Nok Ten in Prawet. The reason is that the house of Pia's parents is no longer there.

And now, in 2015, we sleep in Latkrabang again, at Pia's younger sister Wanna.
Not along the Khlong, but just in a town house along a street.
The house in Prawet is sold. We can't sleep there anymore.


When we write about a place, we write about what we saw and did there, and what we think about it; no more and no less.
This is not a travelguide (we are not complete), and it is neither an advice to visit or not to visit a place. Other sites can give you that information.
Our opinion about a hotel or restaurant is not ment to be a (positive or negative) review, you can find that information on other sites.
It is our description of a situation on a certain moment, influenced by our mood.
