Bangkok is not only a great destination for sightseeing and shopping, but for conducting business as well; here are some insights for corporate travellers planning a business trip to the Thai capital.
For added convenience, stay in a centrally located city hotel. Bangkok accommodation options in areas like Sathorn or Silom as well as on Sukhumvit Road or New Petchaburi Road are ideal. Such locales are also easily accessible from local airports, the Airport Rail Link, MRT, Skytrain and boat services too.
Apart from location, look to stay at business-friendly properties such as Avani Atrium Bangkok Hotel which cater to corporate travellers. Such hotels offer executive rooms or suites featuring free Wi-Fi along with exclusive club floor access with dining options, complimentary laundry, personalised check-in, express check-out and more.
Ideally, stay at a hotel that has versatile and well-equipped event spaces as well as half or full-day meeting packages and offers the assistance of an event planner. Depending on the property and the package, you will also receive free Wi-Fi, access to an audio-visual system, personal function host and meal options as well.
To Keep in Mind
When doing business in Bangkok, there are several cultural considerations to keep in mind; wear conservative business attire (avoid black since it’s connected to funerals), present your business card with your right hand, never disrespect the Buddha or the Thai monarchy and establish personal relationships before doing business.
