Hotel at a glance
An opportune structure within one of the city’s main shopping districts, the abode festoons rooms with vividly-streaked lampshades and marble bathroom walls. Eschewing the crowds for a quick meal, plates of Thai and Western-styled food from an on-site restaurant complete lunch and dinner runs, accompanied by fortifying sips at the illuminated bar. Post-refuelling sessions, guests head out into the Bangkok flurry for glimpses of cultural and touristy attractions, or assuage neglected purses at Four Seasons mall that spoons the hotel’s walls.
Bangkok, Thailand: What to see and do
Once a small village on the banks of the Chao Phraya river, Bangkok grew into the metropolis that it is today when King Taksin turned it into a capital city in the late 18th century. Although it is the centre of the nation’s development and growth, it still retains much of its identity, as can be seen by the historical monuments that co-exist with skyscrapers and intermingling of traditional culture with modern lifestyles. Amidst the bustle of development, the Grand Palace is a symbol of spirituality and majesty, an architectural gem that blends traditional, neo-renaissance, and modern styles, and pays tribute to the intricacies of traditional Thai craftsmanship throughout the ages. Also on the palace grounds is Wat Phra Kaew, or Temple of the Emerald Buddha, which houses a jade statue of Buddha and an extensive mural of Ramayana on the exterior walls. Wat Pho is a ten minutes’ walk away from the Grand Palace, and houses a giant reclining golden Buddha that measures up to 46 metres long, its feet adorned with mother-of-pearl ornaments that depict the 108 characteristics of Buddha.
Experience the novelty of zooming down Bangkok’s network of side streets – also known as soi – on a tuk tuk; or if you prefer, hop onto the BTS Skytrain or MRT to reach your next destination. Dive into the cultural heart of Bangkok with a visit to one of the local markets like the Chatuchak Weekend Market, which covers a 27-acre area and has more than 15,000 booths selling fresh produce, handicrafts, and food from all over Thailand. Experience the scenery, sounds, and smells of the Amphawa Floating Market from a longtail boat, and navigate through vendors with boats piled high with goods and hawkers grilling up fresh seafood like king prawns, shellfish, and squid. After a day spent out and about, retreat within the air-conditioned confines of shopping malls around Sukhumvit, the trendy part of Bangkok, and rejuvenate with a Thai massage at one of the spas. When dusk blankets the city, follow the crowd of partygoers as they throng the bars and clubs along Soi Cowboy and Soi 11, or take a leisurely boat ride down the Chao Phraya river past lit-up temples as the water reflects the neon glow of the city skyline.
