Location  (see maps and pictures on the web site)


 Bangkok is about the cheapest place in the world to fly to and to have a conference.  Kevin Walton has a good size Peace Community Church facility of various urban poor people from his area of Bangkok, and has offered the use of his church facilities for those of us poorer to stay.  We would sleep on the floor of the church, eat on the streets (which is common and great food) in order to connect with Bangkok realities and have some meetings there (at costs of US$90).  These spaces will be offered to those from developing countries first.  The majority, and  those needing to cope with the heat can stay across the Road at the Royal Rose Hotel, where we would also host half of the meetings. This is really nice.  Above those prices you will need to plan on your own costs for airport tax about US$10 and estimate of food outside the conference site about $30 for the week.


Download the maps in Thai for your taxi driver from the airport.


There are three choices for accommodation and food  

  1. Hotel room on our own (includes free breakfast, then lunch and some dinners at your own expense).  Royal Rose Hotel
  2. Shared hotel room (2 or 3 people – same price).  These are large rooms, and air-conditioned. (Includes breakfast).
  3. Stay in the church, sleep on the floor, not aircon (breakfast, lunch and some dinners at your own expense) (spaces limited, so preference for those with limited incomes, richer folks may want to book a hotel room then trade spaces if they wish). This will give maximum exposure to Bangkok street life.

There are many corner stalls, with exciting food within a few hundred yards, plus MacDonald’s etc in the nearby malls.


Extra days stay before the consultation on the Sat and Sun night or after on the Sunday night can be arranged at the Royal Rose hotel at  Bt700  for an individual or  Bt400each for sharing a room of 2 or 3 people (4 people it is just as cheap to get another room.   Please indicate if you need us to book extra days for you.  (For your info. Bt40  is approximately  US$1)  


 Summary Of Costs 

Most of us are faith missions.  So we need to pray in the resources for this. We have been able to reduce some of the costs and drop the registration fee and have a very good rate from the hotel.
