Bangkok’s Best of the Very Best

Thailand’s capital is the venue of some of the prime travel and lifestyle events held in the last quarter of 2022. Bangkok was voted as the world’s 2nd Best City for its affordability, connectivity, tongue-smacking culinary experiences and ease of transportation. (Study by Instant Group, UK).

Thailand’s capital is the venue of some of the prime travel and lifestyle events held in the last quarter of 2022 and visitors’ arrival is recorded at a mark f 10 million, nearly to pre-COVID arrival.

With a shortfall in work force and untalented recruitment in the hospitality industry, travelers are experiencing holidays not the same as in the Pre-COVID times, now a noticeable nosedive in values of hospitality at some of the venues, which involves a deviation from the very basic attitude and courtesy in hospitality.

On a first-hand sweat detail survey, I had been on the trail to evaluate Bangkok’s Best of the Very Best in Hospitality, Eating Places and cafes, Shopping, wellness, recreation/ excursions and tour operator. Our experiential physual (physical and visual) pick is based on criteria such as experiencing friendliness with a People’s Person attitude (respect and loyalty to visitors); an overall clean environment; location and accessibility; ambiance and space; freshness, ingredients and quality of food; modern room comfort, amenities and toiletry products; facilities and activities.

Some of the best day excursion experiences around and in out-skirts of Bangkok:

8 Elements Spa & Café – Welness

Wellness Spas and massage centers mushroom every nook and corner in Bangkok but not many offers traditional therapies using high quality essential oil. The 8 Elements is among a few professional wellness centers housed in a pleasant ambiance. Located a mere 2-minute walk from the exit of Phrom Phong sky train station in Sukhumvit soi 13, the center is fitted with a café where you can enjoy home-made signature Lemon cake, croissants, snacks, juices and gourmet tea and coffee, while waiting your turn to experience rejuvenating Traditional Thai massage, Herbal Press and Foot massage by professional therapist, well trained by the director of the Spa.
