Places to stay in Bangkok
Bangkok, capital of Thailand and one of Asia's most dynamic cities, is the heart and soul of the country. This frantic and steamy tropical city offers surprises at every turn. Gleaming skyscrapers, glittering resorts, colorful street markets, sophisticated shopping malls, bustling nightlife, and a vibrancy which reflects the incredible economic growth of the last few years.
Bangkok hotels range from luxury international chains to one-off boutiques with only a few rooms. However, choosing the one that perfectly lives up to your expectations depends very much on the purpose of your visit. Business travelers will feel right at home at one of the high-end hotels in Ploenchit-Chidlom and Sukhumvit areas, while enthusiastic shoppers might want to stay in or nearby Siam, where glittering mega-malls are just a few steps away from the hotel’s doorstep.
Get around conveniently in Bangkok, as some of the newly renovated 5-star hotels is superbly located near the elevated highway system, the underground Mass Rapid Transit and the BTS Skytrain, thereby ensuring that any district within the city is very easily accessible. Over the years, Bangkok resorts have been synonymous with world-class hospitality, delivered with the iconic touches of service and artistry of Thailand.
Bangkok is a unique blend of Thailand’s past and present. During the day, tour the city and marvel at historic monuments and modern architectural wonders. At night, experience the excitement of the city’s clubs and cafés. You’ll also find plenty of shopping opportunities, including the area’s largest market and urban shopping malls offering virtually anything you can imagine.
