Anyone who has been in the Thai capital knows that Bangkok is full of hotels thanks to the booming industries evident with the variety of developments in the nation’s capital.
Thousands of professionals come to Bangkok for business trips. They want convenience to go around the central business district and often opt for hotels located in the middle of the bustling city. However, we can expect business trips to be far from what they used to be considering that a large number of millennials will be in the labour market. In 2023, millennials and Gen Z comprise more than 60% of the workforce and they will dictate corporate travel trends in the next five years.
Increasingly, executives are incorporating leisure elements on their trips. Bleisure travel, the combination of business and leisure, is on the rise with more millennials in the workforce driving its popularity.

Located in the heart of the city along the famous Chao Phraya River and is walking distance to lively entertainment district in Khao San Road, the property is surrounded by some of the city’s most treasured historical sites such as The Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun that one can easily visit.
