There are four faces altogether, which represent the four virtues of compassion, empathy, joy and charity. Those who pray for spiritual ascension must work hard to cultivate these four virtues.
Chao Phraya
4.5/5
2,633 Reviews
River
The Chao Phraya River is known as the “Mother River” in Thailand and is also called the “Venice of the East”. Spanning a total of 1,352 kilometers, the Chao Phraya River runs through the southeastern part of Thailand and flows through the Bangkok city. It plays an important role in urban transport and the lives of the shore residents. The water transport on the Chao Phraya River is very convenient. The Chao Phraya Express Boat is one of the main domestic transport vehicles in the daily lives of Bangkok citizens. It is also a frequent means of transport for tourists. Sitting on a boat and watching the scenery on both sides of the river is pleasant, while taking a night tour of the Chao Phraya River is both romantic and comfortable. These two are definitely worth experiencing.

Chanel has been photographed at this hotel. Once in the lobby, you can feel the high-grade color of grandma ash and metal copper. The corners of the hotel use the elements of birdcages and flowers, wall lamps, chandeliers, wallpapers, all of which can be heard. Bird flower The classic Quartet roundabout in the hotel is bubbling, the lighting is soft, and there is gentle music in the hallway. There are several dining spaces, and the secret garden looks like a secret garden. About the room and dining Ordinary room space are quite large. There are desks, lounge chairs, super slim floor mirrors, large bathtubs, free snack baskets, bathrobes and super comfortable home clothes (this is very special), each room. There is also a life navigation mobile phone that can be taken out! If you have to pick a little bit of trouble, the sound is slightly weaker. On the sixth floor, I can hear the sound of a party — photo point 1. The spiral staircase can take a classic photo, walk up from the middle of the stairs, and feel like you are a big protagonist; 2. The stairs on the first floor can take photos of the stairs. The photographer should shoot from the second floor. The vertical composition is better; 3. The entrance of the hotel is also very suitable for shooting. The background has various large leaves and bird cages. The marble floor is very high-grade; 4. The room can also be photographed. Now it is a hot wrapped towel. As everyone knows, the English menu in the room is very like a newspaper. You can pretend to cover your face; There are also eight floors of open-air swimming pools and corridors in the halls that can be patted. Salil Hotel Sukhumvit 8 Salisbury Address: 50,50/1 Sukhumvit Soi 8, Sukhumvit Road.

From Bangkok, I rushed to the King Power Duty-Free Shop in the city center. By the way, we even lived in the hotel next door to Pullman. It was more convenient to buy and buy at first. A big bargain, let's take a closer look at the preferential intercommunication between King Power King Duty-Free Shop and Pullman: 1 At the front desk check-in, I sent a big surprise. 1 King Credit Power Duty-Free Shop for 10% off coupons and 1 single product 20% discount coupon. Buy 2 on the 2nd floor and buy cosmetics. It’s cool. 2 Vouchers of 500 baht per person 3?? Get a BTS one-day voucher at the King Power Duty-Free Shop. The King Power Duty-Free Bangkok City Store is located next to the BTS Skytrain Victory Monument. You can use the BTS card after you finish it! Is very convenient! By the way, One Day Pass is going to be activated on the counter before it can be used. 4?? Buy 5,000 baht in the King Power Duty-Free Shop and get a 1000 baht Pullman vouchers, which can be accumulated! It can only be used at the Pullman Hotel. So I want to thank the girls who asked me to help you, your cosmetics, let me eat a few buffets in Pullman, I am also a person who has experienced purchasing pleasure~ If you are dragging your luggage to the King Power Duty Free Shop, it doesn't matter, there is a luggage storage service in the Travellers’ Lounge on the first floor. After storing the baggage, take the passport and return ticket information to the service desk to buy the purchase order, do not buy can not buy ~ in the King Power Wangquan duty-free shop to buy Thai local products. I suggest you bring an empty box, delivery is convenient, but the second floor The goods at the cosmetics counter are to be picked up at the airport and must be purchased 5 hours before boarding.  King Power Wangquan Duty-Free Shop 1st floor is a luxury specialty store. This kind of cure for all diseases, you know, GUCCI, COACH, MK, and other popular brands have a store, almost all the latest models, see favorite. The style itself is worth buying. My main task is to give my girls a variety of lipsticks. The girls’ favorite cosmetics counters are on the 2nd floor. The cheapest L'Oreal in history is right here, let I am pleasantly surprised that the color number of the TF here is all right. The basics that the girls want to buy are all bought. Probably because of the 11-year holiday, there are not many tourists, so there is almost no shortage of goods, and I am moved to cry. The newly renovated King Power Duty-Free Shop looks like it is still very high-grade. There are not many tourists, and there is no need to line up the consignment. The brand is everything from basic to high-end. The CDP that Chinese people like is also a famous brand here because there are not many tourists, so there is no out of stock, and the CBP BB cream for friends is worth the price. The price is still very high~ the reddest fragrance, but Jo MALONE, you want the taste. , here are all, really ~ Here again, there is a surprise to pay with Alipay! You can also get a 200 baht red envelope~ You can buy another gadget~ The local products of Thailand are basically on the third floor. You like the Thai-style bag, all kinds of aromatherapy essential oils, grass cream, various soaps, and cosmeceuticals — all at this level. However, our focus is to eat the net red restaurant! The snack area needs to be recharged at the service desk and then purchased again, but the price is still very high.

For most people, New Years evokes memories of large celebrations. Perhaps it’s watching the ball drop in New York’s Times Square, perhaps it’s the fireworks from Sydney Harbour Bridge. In Thailand and other places throughout Southeast Asia, New Years is an excuse to have a massive water fight. Thailand’s traditional New Years festival, known as Songkran, is observed every year from April 13-15. To understand Songkran is to gain an appreciation of Thailand and Thai culture. In this travelogue, we explore the traditions around Songkran and delve into some recommendations for great places to participate in the festivities. Make sure you’ve got a change of clothes, because we’re going to get wet.
