Patumwan, Thailand (PressExposure) June 26, 2009 -- Chateau de Bangkok, a boutique Bangkok hotel, has recorded an increase in guests this year over the Amazing Thailand Grand Sale period compared to last year. The Sukhumvit accommodation provider also expects to see numbers increase over the period of the upcoming Bangkok International Film Festival.
"We believe the awareness of our service offering, ideal location, and quite low rates compared to similar 4 star Bangkok hotels has grown tremendously over the past year", said Mrs Somrudee Nooner, director of sales and marketing at the hotel.
The Amazing Thailand Grand Sale is an annual event. This year the event runs from June 1 to August 31. Retail stores, tourism operators, sporting facilities and hospitals across all districts are offering 5-70% off their usual prices, luring thousands of extra visitors to Thailand. The sale is part of an overall package of tourism stimulus measures, meant to help the economy recover by the second or third quarter of this year.
Chateau de Bangkok is located in the heart of the Suklhumvit district, one of the best-known for quality shopping. The Emporium and Robinson department store are located in Sukhumvit and easily accessible from Chateau de Bangkok, as are smaller eclectic shops like ZEN, Flow Now, Manga, Playground, and Q Concept.
The Bangkok International Film Festival is expected to be held from the 1st to the 29th of July 2009. This will be the sixth year the event has run. Since its inauguration, it has become an important part of the global film festival circuit. Expect the focus in 2009 to be on content, rather than glamour.
Bangkok Film Festival is held on Ploenchit Rd, only a short walk or taxi ride from Chateau de Bangkok hotel. The hotel is adjacent to Ploenchit Skytrain BTS station.
"Most of our film festival guests last year were from across the Asian region, coming to see the blockbusters like 'Queen of Lankasuka' and the Asain premire of last year's Woody Allen film. We look forward to seeing the program for this year!", said Mrs Nooner.
