Take a look at these five suggestions of luxury experiences to do on your next Bangkok trip.
#1 Flying Business Class on Qatar Airways
In case you haven’t heard, Qatar Airways has begun a new service to Bangkok on their new A380. In their cabin you will find a dreamy lay-flat bad, Giorgio Armani skin products, movies, music and television and Krug champagne served in their sleek sky lounge.
#2 Staying at the Four Seasons
The Four Seasons, which opened its doors in 1983, is located in the Pathum Wan district and offers their guests a secluded oasis next to Bangkok’s luxurious shopping area.
The mural located on the staircase, called “The Ascent of the Chakri Dynasty to the Throne of Thailand” is a true masterpiece and was entirely hand painted on 19 silk panels. A must-see. Despite the actual modern era of design, this hotel remains an icon of Southeast Asian charm.
The Hotel features over six dining options, three bars, a luxe spa and fitness center, and a high-end shopping arcade.
#3 Private tour of the City’s Khlongs
Due to the cities population, sightseeing abroad the xxpress boats can quickly become overwhelming. We suggest a private tour of Bangkok’s Khlongs (the city’s canals), which offers a more intimate look into the history and commerce of this port city.
#4 Dinner at Baan Khanitha
Some of the most luxurious experiences you can do in this beautiful city are based around feeling at home and an intimate part of the Thai culture. This restaurant’s interior remind of someone’s dinging room, with discreet corners that allow a quiet, romantic dinner or a fun evening with friends. The food is centered around traditional Thai dishes and absolutely delicious.
#5 Cooking lesson at the Blue Elephant
Better than simply sitting in the restaurant and enjoying a meal is learning how to cook it. And that is possible at the Blue Elephant with Chef Nooror Somany Steppe. She and her daughter run the class and give a very informative presentation that is followed by an individual participation in the restaurant’s kitchen classroom.
For half a day you are giving the opportunity to learn how to cook delicious Thai dishes with fresh ingredients.
