  • The Peninsula Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand

    View of the Peninsula Hotel from across the Chao Phraya river.




    The zig-zag shape of the building ensures good views from the rooms. I stayed in a “Balcony Room” – those in pairs in the centre – high on the 28th floor.

    Arriving in the evening, this was the view from the balcony.

            I make no excuse for reposting this view which has already appeared in two threads! It is the view that greeted me at sunrise the following morning.





            The view looking across the river in the afternoon.

                The corridor to the rooms follows the shape of the building, with shuttered windows at one side giving a pleasing restful ambiance.

                  Pointing my camera directly down from the room balcony.




                  The hotel is situated on the opposite side of the river from the central areas of the city, but this is not a disadvantage as these green-roofed traditional style hotel boats provide convenient and pleasant cross-river transport.

                      A favourite image of mine, looking up at the hotel with the curved roof of one of the boats also seen against the sky. On any other day than that sunrise I would certainly have chosen it for my “Skyscape”.

                        The hotel also offers a sunset c0cktail cruise on the river most evenings.

                          Breakfast may be taken outside at the River Cafe terrace.

                            Another favourite image…happy smiling waiters at breakfast.

                              Those waiters were on the left of this photo, across the lawn.
