The Oriental Bangkok

Posted on

35 years ago, I stayed at  the Mandarin Oriental Hotel; ‎I am here today, it is exactly as it was then, as if time stopped here.
I am enjoying the "Joseph Conrad " suite, which is located in the old wing of the hotel, "the historic wing ", looking out on the Chao Phraya River‎, it must have felt and smelled the same in 1887, having breakfast on the terrace of the suite, the humidity has already taken over, but it is such a romantic scenery, I can close my eyes and go back in time, Crown Prince Nicholas from Russia is walking thru the gardens. I am in Bangkok to shop for a shop!
Do not look any further, my next shop can only be in this iconic hotel...
From Bangkok with love,

PS: I literally  bumped into Charles and Diana in the lobby in the 80's !
