There are two large wings of the urban resort, the original Shangri-La Wing and the newer Krungthep Wing. The rooms and suites in the Shangri-La Wing are generally larger but lack the balconies the accommodations in the Krungthep Wing offer. Each part has it’s own riverside recreation area and swimming pool.
The large resort has a few different dining options and even has its own Horizon Cruise dinner river cruise. The hotel’s executive chef and his team prepare a wonderful dinner as you float up and down the river, viewing the city from a unique perspective.
I flew China Eastern Airlines to Bangkok from LAX, flying through their PVG hub from LAX. They offer a very competitive Business Class product with new 777 aircraft, wonderful leather, flat-bed, pod-style seats (each with aisle access), excellent food and wine and great service.
