Where to have a nap in central Bkk?

25 posts in this topic

It may seem like a funny question but I'm spending the entire day in Bkk from morning to night and after a few hours of walking, I may need a nap somewhere in central Bkk.

 

Not interested in short time rooms, where else is good? I was thinking the library in Lumpini Park. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Most coffee shops won't disturb you if they're not busy and you order a drink and doze off in an armchair. Order a soda or decaffeinated...

Bumrungrad hospital is the solution. No purchase necessary. Provides many floors offering a nice view with free coffee, tea, water, toilets, wifi, peace, quiet, cleanliness, various forms of padded seating, centrally located, and an inexpensive canteen packed with pretty nurses. 

 

 

I guess if you think about it there are many people waiting at the Hospital for someone having treatment etc

 

and since Thais can sleep anywhere it would just seem normal :smile:

MacDonalds, if you are poverty stricken you can crash out there for the night too, free A/C, WiFi, food and cheap as chips.

Not only Thais. I went to the Muslim prayer room which provides towels, shower, and soap (as many Muslims shower before prayer) and there was someone sleeping on the carpet. I brought a change of clothes knowing there would be a clean toilet and shower available.

Muslims pray five times a day. They wash their feet and hands but don't shower. Unless you are actually a Muslim you won't be allowed into a prayer room. Curious post.

do they have a secret handshake ?

 

I  would think they want new converts as long as they do not disturb the regulars

Great reply. 555. The 1 person I saw was extremely welcoming and shook my hand. He said:

"As-salāmu ʿalaykum (is a greeting in Arabic that means "peace be upon you".)."

Why not lumpini...but just the park not the library? Stretch out under a tree on the grass. Sorted.

I was once stretched out on a flat bench in Lumphini park, eyes shut listening to my mp3 player (yes, it was a few years ago and the bl**dy  park warden came and roused me. No sleeping in the park!

 

Of course when Thais do it, it does not seem to be a problem!

Don't panic, I've seen them waking up Thais too.

When Thais do it they are not sleeping ... they are meditating.

The guys in my office  at Asoke go to a quiet massage parlor nearby and pay them some baht to nap at lunch.  I would imagine it could be done in just about any part of town.

It is a strange question actually.  You can get a ST room for 2 or 3 hours for 300 b with aircon.

A 90 minute foot massage will give you a good nap.

But I guess you want free? There are some covey holes under the tollway near Nana maybe a good place for you.

ha.  I have been know to do that in some quiet foot massage and salon places while in Pattaya.  I give a tip and of course also get a foot or oil massage every other day.  They did not have much business and didn't mind as they were usually engrossed watching the Korean soap operas on TV.  And for fun I would take them to the 7-11 for a burger Kung.  Cheap fun little diversion shopping trip

In Tokyo i saw resting places on top of normal shops...take an elevator to the 5th floor and there are small private rooms with a decent recliner in them...for rent by hour.

 

BKK also needs something like that.

Why not go into one of the 100's of foot massage places and just rent a chair for an hour?
