More often than not, when one thinks of Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen's Park, one thinks of a prime site adjoining a leafy square that is Benjasiri Park in the city centre, within walking distance of numerous attractions in Sukhumvit Road. Bangkok foodies, however, would picture Goji Kitchen + Bar, which features a quality international buffet and Akira Back, an American-Japanese-Korean fusion restaurant.
Ban Amphoe, an up-and-coming beach destination south of Pattaya and Jomtien, reminds many people of what its famous neighbours used to be like decades ago. This boutique hotel in the area is popular among Thai holidaymakers, thanks partly to its modern design and good value for money. It offers Deluxe rooms (35m²) and Corner Suites (55m²). From some of the units, despite the fact that the property is about 150m from the beach, you can get a distant view of the sea.
