In the heart of Bangkok is Sathorn hotel that offers the best benefits for a business or leisure traveler. The hotel is ideally located to meet every need and convenience. Aside from ease of access to various tourist destinations and entertainment venues, the hotel is near the commercial district that has seen a phenomenal growth over the recent years in spite of different challenges.
For the past 20 years, tourists continue to visit Thailand through the bombings, floods, coups, political upheavals and a few unsolved murders. Tourist arrivals at the airports continue to grow even if many people predict that the good days of tourism will be finally over. Many have also made fearless forecasts that the number of tourist arrivals will soon plateau but right now everyone is asking when?
The currencies of many Asian nations are strengthening against the US dollar and Asians have the money to travel and spend a holiday. Asians are travelling to the Land of Smiles and spending their monies on hotels, entertainment venues and tourist destinations. The good days are not over because tourists continue to flock to Bangkok, Phuket and the surrounding islands.
Years ago Thailand was known as the Land of Thousand Smiles but right now it is more proper to call the country as the Land of Thousand 7/11’s. Those who start business in Thailand prefer a convenience store or a tour provider because their success is very obvious. Anything that caters to tourists is bound to succeed particularly hotels, bed & breakfasts, apartments and inns including restaurants and bars.
China continues to be the major source for tourists. Inbound tourist arrivals up to the end of August this year are estimated at more than 3 million or up by 8.6% year-on-year. Based on the current numbers, tourism officials are confident that tourist arrivals will exceed their expectations this year.
On the other hand, in spite of the continuing increase in tourist arrivals, hotels must not rest on their laurels. Like Sathorn hotel, all other hotels in Thailand must offer the best when it comes to amenities and facilities. Guests want more perks, more discounts and more special offers aside from comfort and convenience.
