I travel to Bangkok at least once a year, mainly for the love of Thai food. The explosion of flavours – comprising sour, spicy, salty, sweet and even bitterness –that invigorates the taste buds, is just out of this world. Street food is the best way to experience Thai food. But, if hygiene and cleanliness is your main concern, and you seek high quality in the ingredients that go into the dishes, then your best option is Eathai at Central Embassy, raved by many to be Bangkok’s best food court.
Central Embassy by the Central Group is a classy and sophisticated shopping haven, featuring an 8-storey retail podium. You will find an extensive range of retail outlets with big luxury brands to boot. Restaurants can be found mostly on level 5, while cafes are dispersed amongst different levels. Continue reading
Worldly travellers and business travellers alike will adore Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok –there are no reasons not to. The façade spells chic and sophistication, fronting with tall floor-to-ceiling glass panels that extend to the second storey, inviting guests to a bright and expansive lobby adorned with intriguing modern art pieces.
Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok is conveniently located in the heart of Sukhumvit’s business, shopping and entertainment district, a five-minute walk from the train station (BTS) Phrom Pong station as well as the popular upscale shopping mall Emporium. Guests have easy access to many shopping destinations around Bangkok via the BTS, such as Terminal 21, MBK Centre, CentralWorld, Siam Paragon and Jatuchak weekend market.

In November 2013, Conrad Bangkok earned the title of Country Winner Thailand, Luxury City Hotel, in the World Luxury Hotel Awards, competing together with over 1,000 hotels from 87 countries nominated to participate across 50 categories including Luxury Private Island Resort, Casino Hotels, City Hotels and Lodges. In addition to that prestigious award, they also triumphed in The International Hotel Awards with a triple win with Best Conventional Hotel Thailand, Asia Pacific and International.
Conrad Bangkok also received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award in May 2014, given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, with ratings of at least four out of five, taking into account the volume and recency of reviews.
Also worth mentioning: green advocates will be pleased to know that every bulb throughout the hotel will be entirely replaced with LED lightings – which are brighter and significantly more efficient than fluorescent counterparts – as a measure of promoting a greener future through energy savings.
Having gathered all these news, I figured I couldn’t possibly miss out on Conrad Bangkok as part of my agenda during my work-come-leisure trip. Continue reading
