Thailand: Bangkok Lodging

> Asia > Thailand

Features: Bangkok has hundreds of hotels in every price range in a wide variety of locations. Most travelers to Thailand will arrive in the capital, Bangkok, and enjoy a few days of rest and sight seeing.

A large bustling noisy city, Bangkok does not appeal to everyone; however, there are some sites which truly should not be missed. The King’s Palace is breathtakingly beautiful and a quintessential example of Thai architecture. Once known as the “Venice of the East,” Bangkok still has many active waterways and an entertaining way to see the temples and life on the river is by hang yao (long tailed boat).

Many day excursions can be taken to surrounding areas, such as the ancient ruins of Ayuthaya and the floating market of Ratchaburi Province. The city offers many world class hotels, a famous cuisine, and exceptional shopping for silks and precious stones, intricate carvings, and traditional Thai clothing. Call Uncommon Adventures for assistance in selecting a hotel which meets your needs.

Oriental Hotel

Among the most famous hotels in the world, the Oriental offers the ultimate in personal service set on the banks of Chao Phraya River. A superior deluxe, colonial-style hotel, the Oriental has an exotic Eastern style. The hotel offers 8 restaurants, 3 bars, a Thai cultural program, a butler service, a sports facility and offers an Oriental Queen Cruise to Ayudhya.

Ambassador Hotel Bangkok
