Bangkok Welcomes New Observation Deck

There are many buildings in Thailand including family hotels in Bangkok which cements the city’s reputation as a budding metropolitan. There are tall buildings everywhere in the capital that developers are aiming to beat the tallest ones in order to create a new milestone. For MahaNakhon, the completion of the observation deck by the developer Buro Ole Scheerenmeans they have bagged the title of the second tallest building in the entire kingdom.

MahaNakhom, a local name pertaining to great metropolis, is composed of 77 storeys. It takes a pixilated form and the design has cuboid cutaways which continue upward in order to complete its facades.

According to Ole Scheeren who is Buro Ole Scheeren’s principal, the main idea for the construction of the skyscraper is to embody the city life in Bangkok and showcase it in the form of a tower which exudes a dramatic effect with a movement that spirals.

The building of MahaNakhon, with a final height of 314 meters, took home the title of the tallest building in Thailand when it was first launched in 2015. A residential tower with height higher than one meter was then constructed which snatched the title away from the skyscraper.

At the top of the building is an observation deck with glass floors. This gives the viewers a chance to see the entire city of Bangkok in 360 views.

Scheeren said that the observation deck at the very top of the building was intended to be used by the public so that human activity is not only at the ground floor but at the entire length of the skyscraper from bottom up to the top.

At the beginning of the project, it was intended to be an integral part of the city as well as the public and the creation of the observation deck was a testament to that proclamation.

The observation deck called Skytray can be visited by guests at family hotels in Bangkok which gives them direct view of the ground which is over 300 meters from the top. The entire glass platform’s dimension is 4.5 meters by 17.5 meters.

Chinese Tourists In Phuket Choose Other Options For Golden Week

It seems that the recent incident with the sunken boat in the island has led to Chinese tourists avoiding the Phuket boat charter and the country itself for their trips. This is according to Vichi Prakobkosol, President of the Association of Thai Travel Agents (Atta), who expects that this shift in demand would lead to the Kingdom losing about B2.1b in revenue from China, calculated from average spending of B6,000/head/day or B42,000 for a week-long trip.

Atta warned that the number of Chinese tourists to Thailand would drop by at least 10% during the Chinese National Holiday or Golden Week, which starts at October 1 annually then runs until October 7.

The Phuket boat charter tragedy that struck the island in July, which was then followed by dengue fever epidemic in Thailand as well as an incident of an airport official at the Don Mueang airport attacking a Chinese tourist in early September have damaged the country’s reputation as a tourism destination.

He says that the boat accident in Phuket is most likely the major factor in the reduction in Chinese tourists, which was followed by a number of tour cancellations while airline and charter operations in China have omitted Thailand from their seasonal trip schedules.

Mr. Vichit has said that Chinese tourists are option for other destinations like Japan and South Korea in the three months following the incident, which prompted the Chinese government to issue travel advisories on Thailand, as well as asking their travellers to avoid Phuket and other islands in the Kingdom.

This is problematic as the Golden Week is the key point of the year where Chinese tourists visit Thailand in droves. Chaiya Rapuepon, President of Andaman Tourism Business Association, implored the government to improve the safety and security in the islands and across the country in order to restore the confidence of travellers from China. He says that, if tourists see clear preventive and security plans, they will likely return to the country in the remaining months of the year.

Current expectations forecast that 7 million Chinese tourists will head for the Golden Week period, which is up from 6 million in the same time in the same time in 2017. China Tourism Academy meanwhile, reported that 71.3mn Chinese made overseas trips during the first half of 2018 which is a 15% from the prior year.

How A Bangkok Function Room Accommodates Small Meetings In Asia

Some years ago, Bollywood hot couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwariya Rai checked into the DusitThani Bangkok for the awarding of an Indian International Film Academy in one สถานที่จัดเลี้ยงกรุงเทพ. The hotel then hired top-calibre Indian chefs for the celebrities to suit their gastronomy. Just after midnight, when the secretary declared the stars were ready to eat, they served scrumptious cuisines that can ever be tasted. However, the couple only opted for McDonald’s hamburgers; hence, it was duly arranged.

Whether opting for a typical or unusual meal, the business had to move on with hotel event organisers and meeting planners coming from Bangkok to Bali. Plenty of options were laid on the top of the conference table, as it was a time for hotel managers and event organisers to use their wits and make necessary changes to the meeting plans. Even for a small meeting of 20 to 50 people, hotels needed to accommodate guests in their สถานที่จัดเลี้ยงกรุงเทพ with the right service.

If one had to choose resort favourites and business hubs in Bangkok, you’ll realise that competition is too stiff. One has to compare the benefits of having corporate meetings in huge cities like Hong Kong, Shanghai or Macau. The guests may also consider company conferences in Phuket or Bali. And meeting planners need to arrange the events in the best Asian conference hotels for the right price.

Meanwhile, with the rising exhibition and hotel inventory, China is not far behind Hong Kong when it comes to organising conferences in such area. Booming India can also provide a good destination to make the money work in conferences. Air links are improving, and you’ll find hundreds of luxury and boutique hotels springing up in Vietnam. The deal is really competitive; hence, event organisers need to be charmed with such locations.

If you choose a สถานที่จัดเลี้ยงกรุงเทพ ,you’ll need to find a hotel that is designed with packages and rates depending on the season, requirements and group size. The standard meeting package here include lunch, two tea or coffee breaks, stationery and typical AV equipment. Also remember that the rates exclude service charges and taxes.
