Bangkok Tree House, The Eco-friendly Hotel

After several days of an itinerant blog trip in nature reserves, 

I spent two days in Bangkok Tree House. Epic arrival in a motorized small boat stuck in the mud, filmed by the show “Follow Me” for Thai TV channel! So glam! Honestly after hours on the road, endless waiting at the airport, the aircraft, traffic jam in Bangkok and now the vase added to a moist heat (I liquify): I don’t really want to be filmed ! The art of being a travel AND fashion blogger ; )

The area is far from the center 

and I feel heading to the end of the world when reaching by the bamboo pontoon. I really liked the architecture and eco-friendly concept. The small hotel of eight rooms, is divided into several blocks partially covered with large mirrors, bamboo, paintings of artists (below) and lush vegetation (photo 6).

The owner and staff are very welcoming. The place is hype. Before discovering my room, during the filming of “Follow Me”, I begin a short interview with the producer and host, Dr. Nathasedh Top Poonsapmanee (photo 5).

- In “Follow Me”, I’d like the Thai to see places where they never go. Today Bangkok is colorful and a mix of tradition and new generation.  

Where to eat and drink in Bangkok?

- Go to Sukkumvit area! Bo.Lan is a renowned Thai restaurant, run by a couple of chefs, Bo and Dylan (Sukhumvit Soi 26). Grase, a bar and nightclub (Sukhumvit Soi 49). And Level, club and lounge (Sukhumvit Soi 11).

What about Thai young designers? 

- For women: Vic and Asava. For men: Grey house and Closet.

The + of the Bangkok Tree House: 

The eco-friendly and sustainable concept: congrats ! The architecture and decoration both organic and design, are great too. The atmosphere and the staff are very cool, it feels good immediately. The neighborhood, 100% Thai immersion. 

The – of the Bangkok Tree House: 

The hotel is on stilts, at low tide you can see all the rubbish of the Chao Phraya river and it is not pleasant. Maintenance: ants invasion on my bed and clogged toilets in my room. The restaurant.

Bangkok Tree House, l’hôtel éco-responsable

Thailand-Bangkok-Tree House-3A-Photo Mademoiselle Le K-copyright 2013

Après plusieurs jours d’un blog trip itinérant dans des réserves naturelles,

je passe deux jours au Bangkok Tree House. Epique arrivée dans une barque motorisée, enlisée dans la vase, le tout filmé par l’émission “Follow Me” pour une chaîne de télé thaï! So glam! Honnêtement après des heures sur la route, d’attente interminable à l’aéroport, l’avion, les embouteillages de Bangkok et maintenant la vase sous une chaleur humide où je me liquéfie : je n’ai pas vraiment envie d’être filmée! L’art d’être une blogueuse voyage ET mode ; )

Le quartier est très excentré

et j’ai l’impression d’être au bout du monde en débarquant sur le ponton en bambouJe flash sur l’architecture très épurée, au concept éco-responsable. Le petit hôtel de huit chambres, se divise en plusieurs blocs recouverts partiellement de larges miroirs, bambou, peintures d’artistes (ci-dessous) et végétation luxuriante (photo 6). 

Le propriétaire et le personnel sont très accueillants. L’endroit est hype. Avant de découvrir ma chambre, profitant du tournage de “Follow Me”, j’entame une courte interview du présentateur/producteur vedette, Dr. Top Nathasedh Poonsapmanee (photo 5).

- Dans “Follow Me”, j’aimerai que les thaï voient des endroits où ils ne vont jamais. Aujourd’hui Bangkok est haut en couleur, mélange de tradition et nouvelle génération.  

Où manger et sortir dans Bangkok?

- Du côté de Sukkumvit. Bo.Lan est un restaurant thaï reconnu, tenu par un couple de chefs Bo et Dylan (Sukhumvit Soi 26). Grase, un bar/boîte de nuit (Sukhumvit Soi 49). Et Level, un club et lounge (Sukhumvit Soi 11).

Des jeunes créateurs thaï? 

- Pour la femme : Vic et Asava. Pour l’homme : Grey house et Closet.

Les + du Bangkok Tree House :

Le concept très actuel, éco-responsable : bravo! L’architecture et la décoration à la fois organique et design, sont aussi très réussies. L’ambiance et l’équipe sont très cool, on s’y sent immédiatement bien. Le quartier, en immersion 100% thaï.

Les – du Bangkok Tree House :

L’hôtel étant sur pilotis, à marée basse, on voit tous les détritus de la rivière Chao Phraya et ça n’est pas agréable. La maintenance : invasion de fourmis sur mon lit et toilettes bouchées dans ma chambre. Le restaurant.

Travel Begins With a Good Travel Insurance

Travel_Blogger_Photo_Mademoiselle_Le_K_copyright_2014

Okay everyone is not a travel blogger,

but I’m sure many of you have already thought what follows. 

While sitting on the plane to Bangkok, as part of an itinerant trip blog in nature reserves, I suddenly clicked! What about if I had an accident there … I don’t know … injured by wild animals (yes could happens!), or a bad fall in a treck … and so on…                 

A stupid or crazy stuff totally improbable that can cost a fortune even with a good health insurance! And then I panic, I didn’t suscribe any travel insurance! Of course landing at Bangkok, I forget everything to focus on my pictures and notes. Fortunately the travel was uneventful.                        

Few more blog trips later, still not assured and less and less reassured, when I meet by chance Allianz Global Assistance, I found it was as a clear sign of destiny ; )

What kind of travel insurance to purchase?    

Answer: What kind of traveler are you? 

It depends on how often you travel. If you go on business trips or family holidays, if you study abroad, or go like a digital nomad or for a several months sabbatical … If you practice or not extreme sports, will visit the natural risk zones etc …

Time travel insurance or annual travel insurance

As a travel blogger, I chose the World Gold Protection, an annual travel insurance really complete that covers me during my travels around the world. To which, it is recommended to add before departure, the natural disasters, strikes and terrorism option of 7 € (8 € from 05/01/14). This option is only available with a World Gold Protection or Top Selection insurance.

How_Much_Photo_Mademoiselle_Le_K_copyright_2014

How much does it cost?

Here are some examples of prices in relation to the World Gold Protection is annual travel insurance the most comprehensive Allianz Global Assistance : 

- Going over 3 months. You are a student and participate in a 6 months Erasmus exchange in South Africa. The World Gold Protection will cost 270 € (285 €  from 01/05/14) . Plus for the remaining three months , an extra 38 € per month (40 € from 01/05/14) or 3 x 38 €. Total: 384 € (405 € from 01/05/14). 

- You plan a world tour boat with your family during 12 months. The annual insurance for the whole family is 330 € (350 € from 01/05/14), so it would be 330 € + (9 x 38 €) or 672 € (710 € from 01/05/14) .   

To get an estimate of the price compared to your needs, the best is yet to make an estimate of Allianz Global Assistance.
