The Peninsula Bangkok Moments Campaign

The Peninsula Bangkok’s film shows “The City of Angels” from one of the hotel’s boats floating past bejewelled temples on the River of Kings, before switching to the hotel’s traditional three-wheeled Tuk Tuk for a sight of the historic Grand Palace. Then it’s back to the hotel for a Thai dinner at Thiptara, a 1,000-year-old festival and glorious views from a Private Suite.

 

More ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

  • It took 14 passes in The Peninsula’s boat before the photographer captured that lovely moment before the sun slips below the horizon and Wat Arun’s lights were turned on. This is one of four hotel boats that shuttle guests along the Chao Phraya River.

     

    •  
      The five towers of Wat Arun are decorated with thousands of tiny pieces of broken porcelain that were recovered in 19th-century
    •  
      Our boats make 300 daily trips across the river, including one boat that leaves every five minutes to the BTS Skytrain station
  • Just down the river, to get a clear shot of the Grand Palace, our photographer stood on the side of the road waiting for a traffic-free moment. We had a police escort which made us feel a bit like royalty ourselves.

     

    •  
      The Peninsula Bangkok’s Tuk Tuk is painted in the Peninsula’s trademark Brewster Green, created guests' unique experience
    •  
      Inside Wat Phra Kaew is the Emerald Buddha, Thailand’s most revered religious artifact. Despite its name, it is actually made of jade
  • The Peninsula Bangkok’s River Cafe & Terrace is a glorious place to have an early morning breakfast. So as not to disturb diners, the Peninsula staff worked through the night setting up tables on the lawn. They did not mind too much though because the night air was cool.

     

    •  
      Dining tables are adorned with orchids, which the hotel uses 1,000 orchids ever day, and double that amount for special events
    •  
      For special events on The Peninsula Lawn, it takes 10 staff members three hours to set up 20 tables
  • Thiptara uses flaming torches to create a picturesque atmosphere. However, when the wind is high – as it was on the night this film was made – it is a full-time job for the Peninsula staff to keep the torches lit.

     

    •  
      Relocate plan of the 120-year-old banyan tree were abandoned after advice that – if moved – the living spirit of the tree might be angered
