Going out on a Limb: The Peninsula Bangkok

March 5, 2012 By:Christopher Roney

Looking for a place to stay along the Chao Phraya riverfront in Bangkok?  Well, look no further than the Peninsula Bangkok.  The 370-room super luxury hotel was voted the world's best in 2003 and has kept up its best-of-the-best presentation since.  Guests are treated to uninterrupted panoramic views of the river and city, and with a beauty spa and fine dining on site, you'll find little need to leave the hotel if you desire not to.  Pick from any of four restaurants:  traditional Cantonese at Mei Jiang, homestyle Thai at Thiptara, international buffet at River Cafe & Terrace, and Pacific Rim at Jesters.  And once you've satiated your body, satisfy your mind by relaxing in a wonderful three-tiered swimming pool.  Maintain the careful balance by adjusting the custom environmental controls in your chich but classical room.  The Peninsula Bangkok really is my choice to stay for my next trip to the city.
