We landed in Suvarnabhumi airport around 6 pm. We were traveling with Air Asia and the flight was perfect. Duration of the flight from Phnom Penh to Bangkok was slightly over one hour. We went straight down to the public taxi area and booked a taxi to Pattaya. We managed to negotiate for price of 1200 Baht. We decided to take the taxi as we can share among the 3 of us. We could have taken the bus to Pattaya for 124 Baht each but we just want to get to Pattaya immediately without waiting for the bus. The taxi ride via the toll gate way will be approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
While in Phnom Penh, Zach has already booked a hotel via online. He told me that he got some points for using Agoda to book his hotel rooms all the time. He decided to stay in Four Seasons Place Hotel. The price of the room per night is USD96 and using his discount points he managed to get it at cheaper price. He told me the room is big enough and I can just sleep on the couch if I wanted to save money. I decided to have a look first at the room and decide whether I will sleep on the couch for free or book another room for myself. We dropped Dean at his hotel first before heading to Zach’s hotel. Dean suggested that we should meet up for a drink later and we promised to stay in touch by texting. When we reach Four Seasons Place, checking in was a breeze. We went to our room and this is how the Suite looks like.
As we enter, this is the dining area. It has a big fridge, oven and microwave

After seeing the suite that he booked, I decided to crash on the couch for free. After all we are only here for 2 nights. It has free Internet access and I like the idea of chilling at that little office space. The floor area is around 80 square meters and the room has 2 bathrooms. It also has a balcony for you to smoke as the room is non smoking type. You will never find a suite room anywhere else in the world that is less than USD100 except in Asia. This is the reason why I love Asia so much.

Note : Based on my experience, booking with Agoda and some other online booking sites will give you a better deal.
