DELUXSHIONIST LUXURY TRAVEL SHANGRI-LA BANGKOK

ENJOYING CHAO PHRAYA RIVER FROM SHANGRI-LA HOTEL BANGKOK - Do you know that Thailand is the only country in South East Asia that has never been colonized by a foreign nation? and so initially that Thailand is a kingdom and have a great relationship with the West for a long time. That's why, if you visit Thailand, make sure to pay a visit to its old town especially along the Chao Phraya river and the Shangri-la Hotel Bangkok capture the essence of the beauty from the riverside of Chao Phraya.

The hotel has 2 wings, the oldest is Shangri-La wings and the newest is Krung Thep. I was wondering what is Krung Thep actually mean. Turned out that Krung Them is an official name of the capital city of Thailand, which is mean "City of Angels" and the full name is,
"Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit"

I think that's enough information about the traditional name of Bangkok, but if you are visiting Chao Phraya you can dig dipper about some history by exploring the river and visiting temples near the river, 2 of them is Wat Arun and Wat Pho, which is close to each other and also Grand Palace that accessible both from the road and the river, but try water taxi because it will be so much experience.

Shangri-La Bangkok is located riverside and next to the main pier (Sathorn Pier) where you can book a day trip to explore Chao Praya, you can choose the kind of boat you want to ride. The day pass for unlimited Hop&Hop is 180 Bath, and BTS of Saphan Taksin, so the transport is easy, there's an appointed pier too, a free boat ride to Asiatique if you are looking to enjoy and feel some night market experience, you can buy clothes, souvenirs, and of course, food.

Staying at the best classic hotel of Shangri-La Bangkok, exploring the river and do temple hopping, strolling around the street and hunting some amazing street food, right from the street or Asiatique night market and end the day with spa at Chi then have fancy Thai Dinner at Salathip (Next time I want to try their dinner river cruise). Soon on the next post, I will write about the TASTE OF AUTHENTIC DINING AT SALATHIP
