Thailand: Expedia’s Guide to Experiencing Singapore’s Top Travel Destination
Thailand is a well-loved destination by many people around the world, and for good reasons. Travellers can indulge in endless shopping sprees, feast on the local flavours, enjoy the nightlife, unwind somewhere on an island, or enjoy the chill vibes by the beach. Expedia flight demand data shows Thailand continues to be among Singaporeans’ top outbound destinations for the third quarter of 2022. A tip for those who are looking to stretch their dollar – it might be the best (cheapest) time to get to Thailand between September to November this year.
To get the best out of your stay in Thailand, Expedia has curated a list of accommodations with breathtaking views to fully enjoy an ultimate travelling experience. With panoramic scenes from the top of the city to the vast sea horizons, here are six spots that will take your breath away:
Views of the city’s skyline
1. Okura Prestige Bangkok
The Okura Prestige makes an on-point location for sky high views. From rooms to facilities, you get to enjoy rooftop scenes all around the hotel. An infinity pool is perched on the 25th floor, where you can enjoy a good sunset swim to wind down for the day. Gourmet experiences await you on the top as you indulge in any of the two Michelin-starred restaurants, Yamazato, and Elements, while overlooking Bangkok. A breathtaking view is never complete without a bar. Set yourself high for the night when you check out the Up & Above restaurant and bar.
