Anyone who has yet to have experience the gorgeous Mardarin Oriental Bangkok Hotel really should make a beeline for it ASAP, if only to go in for a drink in one of the very nice bars spread around the hotel lobby and surrounding halls.
(pic above: the Royal Ballroom) Sutiya and I were invited by the folks at the Embassy of Finland to celebrate their 94th Anniversary of Independence (from the Russian Empire), as we've done some work for them in the past (and very nice people they are too!)
Anyway, what a place! The service and general atmosphere are sublimely relaxing, and if you do go, look out for the black and white photos throughout the lobby that show how the hotel looked 50 years ago!
(pic above: the Lobby at the Mardarin Oriental, Bangkok) We didn't stay the night though, the room price range around the 30-35k mark per night, although, judging by the rest of the place, I'm pretty confident its worth it.
