Bangkok is a city that truly has something for everyone, a vibrant energy coursing through the streets that can provide excitement and intrigue at every corner. Situated in the heart of Bangkok’s business and tourist district, Anantara Bangkok Sathorn is well equipped to cater for guests of varying requirements. While its central location provides excellent access across the city, it is also secluded, set to the side of the hustle and bustle of Silom and Sathorn roads.
With this in mind, it is the perfect place from which to explore Bangkok’s many great offerings for international tourists. Often viewed as a quick stopover city before heading on to the mountains of the north or the beaches of the south, those who spend any amount of time in Bangkok quickly grow to love it.
Bangkok city attractions
Grand Palace: Bangkok’s most famed attraction, built by King Rama I in 1782, is a magnificent visual spectacle of royal Thai culture, encompassing temples, murals and statues that are all lavishly decorated. Anantara Sathorn’s central location makes it one of the most conveniently located hotels in Bangkok and it is just a short trip from the palace.
Jim Thompson House: A monument to the Thai silk trade, Jim Thompson House was the personal residence of ex-CIA operative turned silk exporter Jim Thompson. He had the numerous buildings of the residence transported from Ayutthaya and reconstructed in the heart of the city, and they now serve as a museum and restaurant. Access is simple via the BTS Skytrain.
Siam Square: The city’s hub of both local and international shopping, the area around Siam Square is home to Bangkok’s largest shopping malls, selling everything from extreme luxury to high-street brands. Siam Square itself is bustling with local fashion shops, composed from an array of boutiques from local designers.
Wat Arun: Also known as the ‘Temple of Dawn’ Wat Arun is one of Southeast Asia’s most well-recognised monuments thanks to its ornate carvings and floral pattern spiralling into the sky. Constructed in the first half of the 19th century by King Rama II, it sits on the bank of the Chao Phraya River, making access from Anantara Bangkok Sathorn simple.
