Bangkok is one of Asia’s great capital cities, a dynamic business and cultural center for both Thailand and the region. Its friendly, lively atmosphere is a magnet for international visitors: tourists for the attractions, food, shopping and entertainment; businessmen for the numerous opportunities for expanding trade that this exciting city offers.
Major MICE Destination
Event organizers have a choice of five international-standard venues, each capable of hosting large domestic, regional and global meetings, conferences and exhibitions. All are fully equipped with the latest technology and communications equipment, while their multi-lingual staff have vast experience in organizing and hosting successful events to the very highest levels.
Regional Business Center
Bangkok is a regional center for business, finance and communications, with many international corporations establishing offices here to take advantage of business opportunities available in the city, in Thailand and in the region. A number of well-known multi-nationals have chosen Bangkok as the base for their regional headquarters, encouraged by wide-ranging promotional privileges offered by the Thai government.
An integrated infrastructure ensures international visitors enter Bangkok and move around the city with ease. Suvarnabhumi Airport is one of the region’s major aviation hubs, with the capacity to handle up to 45 million passengers a year from all over the world. The Airport Rail Link provides a 15-minute fast commute into the city center. A network of cross-city elevated expressways facilitates the movement of vehicular traffic, while a well-run mass transit system provides fast links to hotels, shopping & entertainment centers, business districts and event venues.
While Bangkok has extensive accommodation to suit all budgets, its 4-5 star hotels are renowned throughout the world for their luxurious quality and outstanding service, while Thai hospitality is legendary. Many leading hotels have well-developed facilities for meetings and social events, supported by business centers and experienced staff. Most importantly, accommodation in Bangkok is not only good value for money, but the facilities offered always exceed expectations.
After business is over, Bangkok has plenty of activities for visitors to enjoy. Dining out is both affordable and immensely enjoyable, with restaurants all over the city serving a mouth-watering selection of cuisines, including the exotic taste of Thai food. An abundance of department stores, shops, malls and markets selling exquisite Thai products and imported brands of fashions, jewelry, electronic goods, handicrafts, Thai silk and much more make Bangkok one of Asia’s great shopping cities. Above all, visitors should make time to experience a traditional Thai massage or a pampering treatment in an elegant spa to truly savor Bangkok’s gentle hospitality.
