The Siam, Bangkok www.thesiamhotel.com
The Siam is the newest addition to, and crown jewel of, the growing portfolio of independently owned and operated properties that make up Sukosol Hotels. The Siam spirit is to create a luxury experience embracing every moment and every individual with sincerity, integrity and a passion for service.
The Siam was conceived by creative director and celebrity Krissada Sukosol Clapp, together with globally acclaimed architect and interior/landscape designer Bill Bensley, one of Architectural Digest’s ‘Top 100 Designers and Most Creative People’.
When Krissada inherited a piece of prime riverside land, he was instantly inspired to build a hotel there to house his substantial collection of antiques. Knowing the property had to stand out he brought Bill Bensley on board. Kriss explains, ‘Bill is entirely original.
This shines through in all of his projects, they have character. I love distinct details. Bill and his team understand exactly how to pull these together into a larger work of art.’
The overall setting reflects the period of Bangkok’s greatest grandeur, under King Rama V (circa 1853-1910), with Art Deco accents.
The Sukosol is ideally located in the heart of Bangkok beside the Phaya Thai Skytrain Station (BTS), just two stops from popular down-town shopping at Siam Square, Central World, Paragon and MBK. A short journey from the hotel will also bring guests to the city's most magnificent temples, museums, markets, parks and restaurants. Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi International Airport lies just 30 minutes away and is now connected directly with the hotel via the Airport Rail Link Phaya Thai Station.
Mixing colonial-style architecture and Asian aesthetics, The Sukosol l is a wonderful place to stay for a uniquely Thai experience. All rooms and suites are equipped with contemporary amenities to ensure the comfort and convenience of all guests.

History, in brief
Dating back to the Neolithic civilization situated at the modern-day UNESCO World Heritage Site in Ban Chiang, the history of Thailand is long, proud, and fairly well documented. Over the early centuries of the Common Era, tribes of Mon, Khmer, and Tai peoples established realms within the borders of modern Thailand; the Mon speaking Buddhist civilization of Dvaravati in the first millennium giving way to the Khmer empire of Angkor by the turn of the second millennium.
Fact about Thailand
However, the history of Thailand as we know it began when the kingdoms of Lan Na (Chiang Rai/Chiang Mai) and Sukhothai, the first truly independent Thai Kingdoms, established highly developed societies in the North and Central regions of Thailand in the 13th and 14th centuries. The Kingdom of Ayutthaya, which was heavily influenced by the Khmer’s of Angkor, eventually conquered neighboring Sukhothai and dominated the region for the next several hundred years of Thai history. Unfortunately, first Chaing Mai and then Ayutthaya were overrun by Burmese invaders, who occupied the Lan Na capital for several centuries and sacked Ayutthaya, forcing the central Thai kingdom to relocate farther south, establishing a new capital in Thon Buri near Bangkok. After the short lived Thon Buri Period (1767-1772), the capital was moved across the Chao Phraya River, and the first of the current line of Kings, Rama I of the Chakri Dynasty, established the modern capital of Bangkok to commence the Ratanakosin Period of Thai history. The adroit diplomatic leadership of Kings Mongkut (Rama IV, 1851-1868) and Chulalongkorn (Rama V, 1868-1910) were responsible for maintaining a remarkable 700 year Thai history during which the kingdom was never officially colonized by foreign powers; a turbulent 20th century witnessed the transition to a system of constitutional monarchy, currently overseen by Head of State, King Bumibol Adulyadej (1946- present), is King Rama IX of the Chakri Dynasty and a tenuous but functional democracy has existed under the regency of this much beloved king.
Thailand, the only Southeast Asian nation never to have been colonized by European powers, is a constitutional monarchy whose current head of state is HM Bhumibol Adulyadej. A unified Thai kingdom has existed since the mid-14th century, and Thailand was known as Siam until 1939 when it officially became the Kingdom of Thailand.
The weather in Thailand is generally hot and humid: typical of its location within the tropics. Generally speaking, Thailand can be divided into three seasons: “hot” season, rainy season, and “cool” season, though Thailand’s geography allows visitors to find suitable weather somewhere in the country throughout the year.

As the political, economic, cultural, culinary, and spiritual capital of Thailand, Bangkok features both old-world charm and modern convenience, at times served up in an apparently chaotic manner, but always with a gracious smile.
Invariably, every Thailand holiday includes a visit to the kingdom’s capital city, Bangkok, or Krung Thep, “the city of angels” as it is known to its inhabitants. Many tourists who travel to Bangkok are immediately overwhelmed by the sheer size of the city and the vast number of attractions Bangkok has to offer. Indeed there are a wide variety of Bangkok sightseeing opportunities spanning more than two centuries of rapid development following the city’s founding in 1782 by King Rama I, the first king of the present Chakri dynasty; since that auspicious date, Bangkok has swelled to a cosmopolitan, 21st century city of more than ten million inhabitants.While the immensity of the city and the chaos of its bustling streets can be intimidating at first, those who spend some time in Bangkok are quickly enamored by the variety of attractions Bangkok contains, from exotic temples, which epitomize Thailand’s strong Buddhist history, to modern shopping malls, which have make shopping an integral part of any Bangkok holiday. As the kingdom’s political, economic, cultural, culinary, and spiritual capital, Bangkok features attractions guaranteed to please visitors either simply passing through the city or spending their entire Thailand holiday in Bangkok.Nearly every Bangkok holiday includes a visit to Thailand’s Grand Palace, arguably the premier Bangkok sightseeing attraction. Situated in the heart of Bangkok’s Rattakosin district, the gleaming spires of the Grand Palace are conveniently located nearby Bangkok’s most spectacular temples, including the Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Keaw), the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), and Wat Po, which features an enormous reclining Buddha and was home of the first Thai massage school in the kingdom. These iconic destinations are top attractions to all visitors who travel to Bangkok looking to appreciate Thailand’s unique cultural traditions.In fact, there are more than 400 functioning Buddhist temples throughout the city and it’s not uncommon when you travel in Bangkok to spot saffron robed monks collecting morning alms or traveling throughout out the city, including along the Chao Phraya, the “River of Kings”, which passes alongside Rattakosin and the Temple of the Dawn. The winding Chao Phraya is connected by numerous canals from which Bangkok has earned its nickname the “Venice of the East”; when you travel around Bangkok, a cruise on the Chao Phraya, a visit to a floating market, or an exploration of the cities “back alley” canals (klongs) are themselves unique Bangkok attractions.Other historical and cultural Bangkok sightseeing ‘must sees’ include the National Museum, Vimanmek Mansion, and Suan Pakkad Palace, all of which either house fine art or are national treasures in their own right.Beyond Bangkok’s historical district, there are plenty of other attractions that make a Bangkok holiday both enjoyable and memorable. While modern “downtown” districts along Silom and Sukhumvit Roads were once nightmares of oppressive heat and unbearable traffic, a modern and convenient electric rail system, including an elevated sky-train and underground subway have made travel in Bangkok both easy and enjoyable. Connecting hotels directly to modern shopping malls and traditional markets, such as the Suan Lum Night Bazaar and Chatuchak (JJ) weekend market, the MRT and BTS electric rail systems have literally elevated Bangkok shopping to world class status. Of course, no Thailand holiday is complete without experiencing Thailand’s vibrant nightlife, during which time you may even witness the occasional elephant wandering the Bangkok streets!Whether, the purpose of your Thailand holiday is to immerse yourself in Thailand’s unique culture or simply to splurge in Bangkok shopping malls, when you travel to Bangkok you are guaranteed a fascinating experience of both old world charm and modern convenience and luxury.
Over the last few decades, Bangkok, Thailand’s capital city, has changed into a modern, exciting, and sophisticated city. Bangkok offers visitors not only the modern amenities they would expect from other cosmopolitan cities, but also a unique treasure trove of cultural attractions. Thailand, in the heart of Southeast Asia, was never colonized and thus kept its unique culture and heritage intact. Bangkok offers visitors the opportunity to experience a fascinating glimpse of Thailand’s gentle culture amidst the bustle of a great and dynamic metropolis. Amazingly, this great city has had astounding success in combining the ancient and modern worlds.For tourists, Bangkok has a feast of attractions to offer. The city is dotted with 400 glittering Buddhist temples of great beauty, magnificent palaces, classical dance performances, numerous shopping centers, and a still functioning traditional way of life, especially along the canals and the Chao Phraya River, the "River of Kings", which winds through the city; Bangkok truly is the "Venice of the East".
Chonburi, Bangkok’s nearest seaside town, is located on the eastern coast of the Gulf of Thailand, only 80 kilometers from the capital. The area boasts abundant natural resources, which are highlighted by delightful beaches, local traditions, regional delicacies, and fresh seafood. This is a popular coastal province among Bangkokians who seek the nearest escape from hectic weekly schedules, escaping particularly frequently to the seaside resort of Pattaya, though Chonburi’s smaller, quieter seaside towns are also quite popular with foreigners and Thais alike. In addition to tourism, Chonburi is the center of the Eastern Seaboard Development Project, with its industrial parks and fishing villages.

Sichang Island. Sriracha
It is believed that the fresh and uncontaminated air at Sichang Island is second to none, compared to that of other tourist attractions in Thailand. Sichang Island has become one of the vacation sites near Bangkok that you cannot help falling for whilst visiting.
Only half an hour away from Loy Island lays the bustling Devawong pier where a large variety of public service vehicles are available. In case you are uncertain about the choice of travel, we would like to recommend a reliable skylab car. Not only because of its reasonable price, but also the driver is quite likely to be your unofficial tour guide.
At a quick glance the skylab cars to Sichang Island are similar to ‘tuk-tuks’ for passengers around Rattana Kosin Island though unlike typical tricycles, they are much bigger and driven by exactly the same motor as of a formidable big bike. Additionally, they come with broad rear seats.
The first must-do activity in Sichang is paying respects to Chao Pho Khao Yai shrine, a sacred place amongst the locals. Later, the skylap will drop tourists at the royal summerhouse of King Rama V ‘Phra Chuthathut Palace’ that is one of the must-see places here. A trip to Sichang without taking photos of the white colonial style overwater pavilion is as though you have not yet made your way to the island.
The landscape of Sichang is embellished – according to the decoration of palaces in western countries – with flower gardens, ponds, streams, fountains and cliffs. There were originally four palaces, fourteen mansions and a pavilion, but nowadays only the three buildings of Aasai Sathan and very few mansions remain. These include Munthatu Rattanaroj Residence that was dismantled and reassembled as Vimanmek Mansion in Dusit Palace, Bangkok.
The three auxiliary buildings of Aasai Sathan; the Phong Sri, the Wattana and the Abhirom – named after the concubines of King Rama V – were transformed into a museum providing vistor information about the palace complex and the island. Located nearby is the hall of Assadangkanimitra temple, the only white temple hall in this area. Built in Gothic architectural style and covered by a spherical pagoda with glass lotus base, it awaits worshippers.
One more attraction on Sichang Ialand is Tha Wang beach. A green beachfront wooden house has become a lovely café for tourists to stop by. You may wish to order a glass of iced latte coffee to quench the thirst whilst reading your favorite book. Or you can just simply sit back and enjoy the waves crashing into the white sandy shore. This location is very impressive and worth taking photos.
To take in every aspect of Sichang, do not miss the sunset at Chong Khao Khat. The place was once the royal sightseeing pavilion of King Rama V. It occupies a broad area and there are scenic points for photographing along the walking trail on the cliff. It is also the perfect meeting point for tourists, couples and anglers to spend time at early evenings.
For decades Had Bang Saen has been the favorite weekend getaway resort for Thai people.
Located 85 km south of Bangkok, just an hour drive from the Suvarnabhum airport, it is easy accessible and unlike any other destination in Thailaad.
You will not find hordes of tourists in this charming village, instead, during the weekends and holidays, you will find this sleepy village transforming into a social Hotspot for Thai nationals. Farmers from the north-east sharing the same beach with Bangkok high-rollers, drinking whiskey, making music, practice dancing and, even, swimming in the Gulf of Thailand.
In 2007 Bangsaen hosted the first ever Bangsaen Speedfestival, an amazing event, right on the streets of Bangsaen!
The quiet village of Bangsaen will be transformed in a 'Monaco in Asia' it is truly amazing to visit Bangsaen during race week. During the day you will see Classic cars, Rally races, Super cars, drifting and much more.
Pattaya is facing the Gulf of Thailand. It is Asia's premier beach destination attracting families, couples and single visitors.
Pattaya's relaxing tropical ambience offers every ingredient for memorable holidays. Accommodation ranges from luxurious hotels with superb convention facilities to simple guesthouses. There is a plenty of sporting opportunities both on land and water including golfing, game fishing and scuba-diving. Theme and amusement parks, offbeat museums and botanical gardens offer a variety of leisure activities and entertainment for all family members.
Pattaya’s a stay up late kind of town, but wake up earlier than most and there are activities galore to redress your daytime/nighttime balance. Hit the dive shops to explore the city’s offshore reefs and wrecks, or get some fresh air on world-class golf courses. And if you’re here with the family, the kids (and mum and dad), will find plenty to do to make it a real holiday.
The town’s wicked essence remains defiantly intact, but around the fringes it’s softening and becoming more inclusive. If you welcome it with a dash of confidence and a pinch of adventure, Pattaya’s sun-kissed pursuit of happiness might prove irresistible.
Pattaya Walking Street
Glowing colorful neon signs illuminates this renowned street of Pattaya at night. The Walking Walking Street, an entertainment area that has 100 beer bars, more than 30 go-go bars, sport bars, discos, cabaret shows, massage parlors, and a wide range of ethnic restaurants as well as seafood line up in the main street and many more in the side-Soi leading towards Pratamnak Road.
