When you go stay at a hotel for a couple of nights you always leave with either a good impression or bad impression. Hotels should always try to make sure their customers are satisfied no matter what. The Akaryn hotel group in Thailand seems to have done a very good job with three of their properties picking up awards in Best Design Hotel, Best Thematic Hotel and Best Green Hotel categories at the Thailand Boutique Awards presentation ceremony held in Bangkok in mid-February. The properties picking up the awards were the akyra Manor Chiang Mai, Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa– this one has been of my personal list of favorites for years, and Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa in Pranburi. It is safe to say they have left a great enough impression and have amazing ratings from customers.
The Renaissance Hotels chain will open its first resort and spa in the Gulf Coast city of Pattaya in Thailand. The resort and spa will offer gourmet cuisine, multiple pools, and have facilities to accommodate large corporate retreats. The building promises to be an architectural marvel, but still have local flair inspired by the region’s rich culture. The hotel is expected to open in fall of 2017 and will offer several different types of rooms.
“With four room categories available, Renaissance Pattaya will offer some of the city’s most comfortable accommodation, including chic pool villas and spacious Family Suites.”

Many cities revel in their street food. If you want to know how a culture really eats this is what you look at rather than restaurant food. It tends to be more authentic and is made by normal people instead of just fancy, well educated chefs. Apparently not everyone in Bangkok appreciates this since they want their street food taken away and it is going to happen. It’s sad to see this because of the negative affect on the culture.
Ride-sharing service UBER took steps to increase its availability and growth in Thailand. Although the government there has asked the service to temporarily stop doing business in order that a survey can be completed, the company has nevertheless partnered up with chat app LINE. Riders will soon be able to schedule a ride via the application; further, there will be no need to specify a destination if it is listed in the calendar function, thereby potentially increasing the efficiency of operations.

A lot of cities are trying to become more of a metropolitan area to appeal to their civilians or tourists when they come visit. Cities will take on million or even billion dollar projects just to create the perfect city or attraction. That is exactly what Bangkok is doing in this article. They are taking on a 3.5 billion dollar project called ‘One Bangkok’, which will be Thailand’s first integrated city. Once completed 2025, the project, adjacent to Lumpini Park will house five office towers and 5 luxury hotels and 3 luxury residential towers, shopping and public spaces. There will be 2.5 hectares or green space including 2.5 kilometers of paths for running, walking and cycling.
Two companies are joining together to build this giant multi-center district. TCC Assets (Thailand) Co. Ltd. and Frasers Centrepoint Limited investment will cooperate to create a landmark location in Asia that acts as a gateway for prosperity within the city; it will be the first of its kind in Thailand.
“The project, called ‘One Bangkok’, is the largest private sector property development initiative ever undertaken in Thailand with an estimated investment value of approximately US$3.5 billion.”
