time of year helps, sometimes when Silom is busy the prices rocket and its hard to bargain. KSR should be cheaper all year long.

Sight seeing you just have to be mobile. everything is in reach シ

KSR is much closer to the main tourist sites. Patpong only has two hotels as far as I know - it is two very short narrow roads. The two main roads on each side of Patpong, Silom and Suriwong, have hundreds of hotels and guesthouses for every budget.

Hi,

"Is it okay to stay one night in KSR then 2 nights in Silom area?"

Sure.. why not.. You'd get a taste of a different area.. Do know that the Silom area *tends* to be overall more expensive for lodging than the KSR area (recognizing that KSR is, in and of itself a small sub-section of a larger area) bu I also think you'll see a different type of perhaps 'class' of patron in the area-- again recognizing the economics of the area.

Travel Safe,

September is low season so there should be some decent deals around.
