Take a glimpse at the watery Bangkok of yesteryear that once was known as the Venice of the East. Hop on the traditional longtail boat and head down the canals from the Chao Phraya River, the ancient waterways for local folks for over 200 years. You will see parts of local life, wooden stilted houses and many other fascinating sights. Voyage down the Khlong Bangkok Noi canal, which is lined with greenery. En route you will see many magnificent temples and architectural characteristics, including the Grand Palace, Wat Arun, or the Temple of Dawn, a majestic white temple with its vibrant porcelain and colourful ceramic tiles that sits on the western banks of the Chao Phraya River in the old capital of Thonburi, and the Royal Thai Navy Dockyard. Nowadays, even though Bangkok has become a modern city, the Chao Phraya River as well as the canals are still charming for whoever wishes to seek the peaceful atmosphere amidst bustling Bangkok.

At-a-Glance From the banks of the Bosporus to the shores of the Huangpu, Kempinski Hotels excels at crafting impeccable hotel experiences grounded in grand European style in locations across Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. What else would you expect from Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group?

Why You’ll Love It Founded in 1897, the brand’s history and heritage is legendary. And with an impressive roster of properties, each more distinguished than the next, Kempinski has a bright future ahead. Whether it’s a grand dame hotel housed in an iconic historic building or a property located in an avant-garde, unabashedly modern skyscraper, Kempinski’s hotels exude that special European flair that speaks to the most discerning of travellers.

Extraordinary Ethos Kempinski’s CSR initiatives are three-pronged: the brand actively seeks to improve the conditions of the destinations in which its hotels are located, the group is a major patron of the arts, and the group integrates sustainability practices into its properties both new and old.

Headline Appeal Kempinski might have its roots in Europe, but the luxury brand is aggressively expanding its footprint in Asia. Now, it operates some of the continent’s finest properties, and it will continue to bring its signature approach to key destinations in China and beyond.

Major Acclaim The awards and accolades earned by Kempinski’s properties read like a laundry list of the best of the best: Conde Nast Traveler, Conde Nast Traveller, Travel + Leisure, the World Travel Awards, TripAdvisor, Michelin, and more.
