No long pages of links

Whether you’re in town on a quick business trip, a short stay while passing through or relocating to Bangkok on a foreign posting, we can help make your transition or holiday easier. It’s simple, there are no pages of links, no long explanations, just Ask your questions and we will do our best to answer them as fully as possible.

Why use us?

Ask Bangkok is a website uniquely created to help YOU enjoy your stay in Bangkok in an easy and uncomplicated way. It has been specifically designed to help you live and move around the city with ease. We don’t want you to waste unnecessary time going through out of date guide books or searching through dozens of different websites for information.

You want it? We find it!

We have an extensive database compiled by expatriates, long term foreign residents and a great group of ‘in the know’ Thai locals, all of whom are constantly searching through pages of local magazines for new exciting places for you to visit. We have an endless list of hip hotels or inexpensive lodgings, from local shoe designers to where to find the best burrito in town, you want it and we find it!!

Constantly updated

As the website is constantly in use and being updated, we pride ourselves in having the very latest information there is to offer. If we can’t find it, then it’s probably not there. Our queries cover the basic needs to the quite bizarre! We find places to get keys cut, shoes repaired, a stunning riverside setting for that all important romantic moment or a great head massage in the middle of Chatuchak weekend market.

Our Concept

Our idea was the brainchild of a group of guide weary expatriates who between them, had every book written about Bangkok, but still found the information wasn’t quite up to date. In a city where restaurants move location at the drop of a hat or that great bag shop expands to the second floor, we work hard on keeping things current, to make you aware of the latest news and trends.

Word of mouth recommendations

We appreciate how difficult it is to collate information and publish it in time. By the time books go to print, telephone numbers have changed and what was a jewellery shop is now a bistro. What we do takes days of continually updating our database based on recent information from local newspapers and magazines. Renowned chefs and bar managers keep us informed of the latest events and promotions, while we always welcome any ‘word of mouth’ recommendations.

This is how it works

With all of this in mind, we decided to collaborate and make things easy…. Just Ask…..

What We Are Doing Right

  • My husband and I were in Bangkok recently for such a short time that it proved really handy to know quickly beforehand where the nearest ... and the best ...how to get to... everything / anything was, so we could do our visiting and hopping about town in the most efficient manner, and at the same time know that the places we went to see, and dine at, were recommended by the locals! Invaluable info, thanks Ask BKK!! Your advice was spot-on!

  • Askbkk.com came to my rescue when I had just arrived to live in Bangkok.  Overnight they informed me where to get drinking water delivered (and the process), where to get an extra key cut, find shoe polish and the best place to buy fresh fish! I can't thank them enough, expat life-savers!
