It’s almost the end of May and that means it’s the end of the government’s ‘staycation’ scheme where you can get 60% off food and hotel stays, including the hotels that already have some amazing deals going on!
Time to enjoy the final swansong…
Last night, it was the turn of the Riva Arun Hotel on the banks of the Chao Phraya river. I’ll talk about the food and drink another time but in past posts, I’ve mentioned how Bangkok turns from a drab, grey concrete monstrosity by day to emerge after the sun goes down as a beautiful paradise vividly drenched in magical lights, an enchanting cityscape that stretches as far as the eye can see.
To try and illustrate this, I took a few photos from the restaurant on the 5th floor and from our room on the 1st floor before and after sunset. The sunset should have been a stunning sight across the river with Wat Arun as a backdrop but as it’s been so often, and most unseasonally the last couple of months, the day was grey, drizzly and humid.
