Ask anyone who has ever visited Bangkok and they will tell you that the Thai capital city is not to be missed while traveling through the region. It is, after all, Southeast Asia’s primary travel destination.
Here, you will find an abundance of heritage and history, round-the-clock entertainment, world-class retail options, streets lined with a variety of food options, and beautiful architecture coupled with warm Thai hospitality – a “Land of Smiles” trademark. The best part, is there is never a bad time to visit as Bangkok boasts a warm, tropical climate almost all-year round – perfect for those who want to escape at any time of the year.
Bangkok also has a slew of head-turning and impossible-to-ignore landmarks and the best place to find them is along the Chao Phraya River. And the one landmark which will connect you to these popular attractions is none other than the strategically-located Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers, one of Bangkok’s most sought after five-star properties and home to 726 beautifully appointed guest rooms which offer unobstructed river views and luxury amenities, topped off with unparalleled service.
While staying by the Chao Praya River means you will never run out of places to eat, at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers, you will probably have no need to leave for meals. It houses four sophisticated and inviting riverside restaurants offering a range of cuisines including Thai, Asian, Italian, and continental fare.
But if you have to leave, the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers believes convenience is key and understands that navigating its immediate surrounding area as a first-time traveler can be daunting. To make your journey seamless, the hotel provides a complimentary shuttle service which allows you to hop on a boat and travel along the Chao Praya River to discover its many sights and sounds.
Board the complimentary shuttle boat service at the hotel’s private pier for a journey to ICONSIAM for a much-needed dose of retail therapy. ICONSIAM is home to 500 shops and an indoor floating market to render you giddy and spoilt for choice.
Alternatively, for a zippier tour of the Chao Praya River, the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers will be more than happy to help you arrange a ride on the guided hop-on-hop-off boat which will allow you to explore The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Keaw, the Asiatique night bazaar, Chinatown, Wat Arun, Thewet Market, and the National Museum of Royal Barges all in less than a day – perfect for those who are traveling with family or feeling a little time-starved.
Once you have packed your Instagram feed with loads of travel-bagging pictures, and with two handfuls of shopping bags in tow, climb back aboard the complimentary shuttle service to head back to your “home away from home” and unwind after a long day. Feel free to take a dip in one of its two outdoor pools or loosen your muscles in the hot tub. If a little privacy is what you prefer, enjoy a deep soak in the bathtub all in the comfort of your room.
Alternatively, give those sore muscles a well-deserved treat and pop on over to the hotel spa. Featuring unmatched river views, double treatment rooms, suites, as well as a riverfront Thai sala, The Spa at Royal Orchid Sheraton is an oasis of calm and relaxation, the perfect place to unwind after a day of pounding pavements. An extensive menu offers a wide range of options from authentic massage therapies and body treatments to restorative full or half-day packages guaranteed to help you realign, recover and discover your moment of mental repose.
Then order in a scrumptious meal from the 24-hour room service and tuck in as you end your perfect day with a movie of your choice.
