The self-proclaimed largest onsen hotel in Thailand, palatial Grande Centre Point certainly puts the emphasis on wellness, with a whole floor dedicated to onsen pools and spa treatment rooms. Alas, you can’t have a glass of bubbly in the hot tub as the hotel is dry; walk 10 minutes south to the bar Thaipioka to get your cocktail fix in a swanky-looking locale – the chocolate ginger negroni and bird’s eye chilli G&T add a spicy twist to two classics.

Khao San Road isn’t the only place to meet other backpackers in Bangkok, and Holy Sheet Hostel proves it. It’s a super social place, with a young, fun-loving host – but it’s far from being a grimy party hostel. Rooms are clean and comfy (female-only dorms have double beds), and there’s a PlayStation 4 and Apple TV in the common room if you’re having a cosy night in. Night still young? Sample some brews at nearby Wishbeer, the largest craft beer bar in Bangkok.

Hostel@Thonglor

Clean and bright, it’s just a few minutes’ walk to the Thong Lor BTS station and is surrounded by the excellent Japanese eateries for which the area is known. A cosy common room, with a modern brick layout and soaring ceiling, is equipped with workspaces and a guest lounge.
