To experience the pulsating energy of one of the world's most famous cities, one should pay Bangkok a visit. It is here in the ‘City of Angels’, as named by King Rama I, where climate-controlled megamalls sit alongside 200-year-old villages and gold-tinged spires of Buddhist temples.
It is in the very heart of this multifaceted metropolis where Ascott Sathorn Bangkok lies. The luxury residence sits squarely on South Sathorn Road, just a 7-minute walk to Chong Nonsi skytrain station and the renowned nightlife and shopping districts on the Silom Road are just a short drive away. The residence is also a mere 1-hour drive to the Suvarnabhumi International Airport and Don Muang Airport.
First-time visitors will never have a boring day. Now home to 5.8 million inhabitants, Bangkok is the proud new capital of Thailand. The ancient capital, Ayutthaya is not far away. Just over two hours away from Bangkok, access it easily via buses, trains and boats - a noteworthy day trip from the Bangkok. Ayutthaya's ruins were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.
Sights worth visiting in Bangkok include the Chaktuchak Weekend Market, an expansive market that houses as many as 8000 stalls and 27 sections, hawking everything from home wares to footwear, pet poodles to fine silver jewellery. For something different, visit some of the most famous temples such as Wat Pra Kaew, Wat Arun and Wat Pho, accessible by still-functioning water taxis along the Chao Phraya River.
At the end of a day of adventure, return to the luxury residence and rejuvenate.
