On the banks of the Chao Phraya, Bangkok's "River of Kings", lies a hotel that has already set new standards of hospitality for this celebrated city.
Set in magnificently landscaped tropical gardens, the Shangri-La Bangkok provides guests with all the charm and warmth of the Orient and, at the same time, an unsurpassed range of facilities and leisure activities.
There is a choice of 12 superb settings in which to wine and dine, a large free-form swimming pool that overlooks the river, convention and meeting facilities for up to 2.000 people and a 24-hour business center.
