Beware of solicitation from unauthorized hotels and housing agencies

participants and exhibitors may experience inappropriate solicitation from hotels or third-party housing agencies not affiliated with the ICSE2015 Conference. While the hotel deals offered by poachers appear to be legitimate and less expensive, they are often misrepresentations, or in some causes they are fraudulent. If you book via one of these companies, there are often issues with reservations, room quality, and fees. The hotel itself is of little assistance in these instances.

We work hard to make the ICSE2015 Conference a great experience for all participants. Poachers are not concerned with your best interest or your experience at this event.
The hotel listed on this website is the official hotel for the ISA event. They will not contact you to solicit room reservations.

After Hours

Thai food is known throughout the world for being hot and spicy. However there are many delicious Thai dishes that are very mild – on the table there will be a selection of fried chilis, crushed chili and chili oil, so you can make your meal as hot as you want! Many restaurants will prepare dishes with none or little spice (nit nong prit) for visitors. There are many websites giving advice and recommendations on Bangkok nightlife - where to go and what to do. Bangkok has something for everyone!
