Pathumwan Princess Hotel (Bangkok) - Part 2

I walked out my room in Pathumwan Hotel, thinking  of what I should do for the rest of the day in Bangkok.  I was in for some sightseeing but was not sure on how to go about sorting this out.  I went back to the reception area, asked one of the staffs who than directed me to the office of the tour agent, situated on the ground floor.

The tour consultant showed me the brochures, the type of tours they have and I chose a half day sightseeing tour in Bangkok. I made payment and was informed that the respective tour operator will picked up from the hotel in two hours time.  Meanwhile I was getting restless because there was much time in between before my tour begins. To kill the time, I decided to check out the hotel, from the ground floor where I was and every other corner. The obvious Christmas decorations reminded me that Christmas was about 3 1/2 weeks away (last year).

The big poster indicated the charity effort of the hotel and these will be possible with the support and contribution of the hotel patrons. I was impressed with the hotel for their action towards social responsibility  particularly towards children, brightening their Christmas day with a gifts.  

From the ground floor I went up to the first floor, took a couple of shots, the restaurants and whatever that my camera was zooming at.

A peep at the swimming pool and
I was tempted to book a spa treatment but held myself back because I had already made plans for the rest of the day.  Maybe I can squeeze the treatment in for the next day or so. I took the lift to the 8th floor, the big open space to have a drink at night while relaxing with light music.

The signboard indicated the facilities available at the hotel. Sightseeing is already a good exercise for the walking that comes with it and so I was not keen in any sports activities the hotel had.
I stood at the edge of the balcony and had a good look at the overall view of Bangkok city, some of the tall buildings and structures.

It was almost 12.30pm and my stomach was signalling that I need food. I went back to the ground floor and one of the staff pointed to the adjourning shopping mall, helping me out on where to look for food.  For the next post, I will be sharing on the food I had at the mall.
