Peninsula Bangkok Temple of Dawn

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.

  • Peninsula Bangkok Tuk Tuk Behind The Scene

    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.

  • Peninsula Bangkok The Peninsula Lawn Behind The Scene

    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.

  • Peninsula Bangkok Thiptara Behind The Scene

    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.
