The Hotel of the Year Awards 2019 singled out Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road as one of the Top 100 Luxury Hotels Worldwide. Hotel Indigo Bangkok features 192 locally-inspired rooms and suites, with luxurious furnishings and great views.
There are many attractions and places to go around Hotel Indigo Bangkok, including Lumphini Park, the bustling Rajprasong Shopping District. The hotel is also close to intriguing roads like Wireless Road and Ruam Rudee, with their diverse panoply of different restaurants and cafes. Other things to do and see are abundant as well.
“Many of these sights can also be viewed from Hotel Indigo Bangkok, from the comfort of each room and many of its facilities.”
Khao Lak is a vicinity comprised of more than fifty distinct islands. It is located off the western part of Thailand’s mainland. Although Thailand is itself a tourist beacon, the district of Khao Lak qualifies all on its own as a tourist mecca.
Not only does it have facilities and charm and vistas up the wazoo, the temperature is a warm and beckoning average of 74-89 degrees, with two major variants, specifically hot and dry and cool and wet. There is a volatile season that features high wind and lots of rain. It is not the best choice for travellers and in fact, most businesses shut down for this brief interim.
Otherwise, there is a lovely old-world village for travellers to peruse, besides waterfalls and beaches and caves, a picture-takers, rock-climbers spelunker’s and memory-makers paradise come true.
“But Khao Lak is a place with an unquenchable spirit, and it has bounced back with aplomb to be reborn as an enviable holiday destination with a happy atmosphere, long swathes of gold sand beaches, mid to upscale resorts perfect for families, great restaurants, excellent snorkelling and diving, and incredible unspoilt scenery.”
If you want to spend some time up close and personal with elephants while in Thailand, but are concerned about ethical issues of how these majestic beasts are treated, Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp Resort, which is a resort with a camp set in a traditional mahout village, might be what you are looking for. Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort has joined together with the Royal Thai Government, and with Royal support, to set up the Thai Elephant Conservation Center and guests will be amazed to interact with these majestic beasts on a personal level and appreciate the fact that they’re so well-looked after. The service offered by the staff lives up the Anantara’s sterling reputation and the accommodations, spa treatments, and food choices are beyond compare. For a true Golden Triangle experience, don’t forget to take a dip in the pool with views overlooking Laos, Myanmar, and the Mekong River.
“Anyone who has struggled to get their child out of the bath will sympathise with the mahouts watching over Bleum and Beau.”
The temperature regularly hovers close to 90 degrees Fahrenheit in Bangkok, which makes the de rigueur hotel swimming pool more than a mere amenity. It becomes an absolute necessity. That said, the best of Bangkok’s hotel swimming pool options go above and beyond the basics of cooling off over-heated guests.
The best of those at Bangkok hotels have superlative views. They’re architecturally stunning. They’re private. They offer spread-out room for swimmers and comfort for sun-worshipers. And, they offer delectable beverages and edibles for both groups. Five to keep firmly in mind, should you be planning a stay in Bangkok are, the pool at the Siam, Bangkok, the pool at the St. Regis, Bangkok, the pool at the Sukhothai, the pool at The Peninsula, Bangkok and the pool at 137 Pillars, Bangkok.
“With temperatures constantly hovering above 30 degrees Celsius, a good swim, preferably complemented by grand views and attentive service, is mandatory in Bangkok.”
Apart from the pools mentioned in the article above, I think an honourable mention should go to the tropical paradise that is the pool at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit Bangkok, which was featured in the 2008 Nicolas cage movie Bangkok Dangerous.
The Bangkok Transit System (BTS) is so famous in Bangkok that residents have dubbed it the Skytrain and it is well known as much as the good street food in Bangkok and the prevalence of fake viagra. The transit system is operated by the Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTSC) which is a subsidiary of the company known as BTS Group Holdings that is operating under a concession which was granted to it by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA). There are 43 stations in the system that are organized along two lines. The first line, the Sukhumvit line runs from the north to the east and ends at the stations at Mo Chit and Kheka respectively. The second line is the Silom Line which operates at Silom and Sathon Roads which are the central business districts under the BMA and it ends at the National Stadium and Bang Wa. An Airport link that is dedicated link runs from the city to Suvarnabhumi and in the future there are plans to open another line that will lead to Don Mueang. To complement the BTS there is an underground and elevated railways lines for the Mass Transit system. This additions were because the growth in traffic in the district has been very huge in recent times.
“The system consists of 43 stations along two lines: the Sukhumvit Line running northwards and eastwards, terminating at Mo Chit and Kheha respectively, and the Silom Line which serves Silom and Sathon Roads, the central business district of Bangkok, terminating at National Stadium and Bang Wa.”
