After a fantastic time in Singapore we flew the short distance to Bangkok, for our first stay in Thailand. First stop was the luxurious Metropolitan Hotel, where we had our special treat of a package that included dinner at David Thompson’s Nahm restaurant. We also enjoyed the large pool from where I sketched the view looking towards the restaurant and the lush gardens bordering the property. We even saw a squirrel running along the powerline as we lay back on the pool deck.
We also enjoyed breakfast which I had to sketch quickly before devouring. The colour came later on.
And I had to do it all again the next morning!
But all this luxe living had to come to an end. We moved to a smaller boutique hotel in Chinatown, appropriately named Shanghai Mansion. The hotel evokes 1930’s in Shanghai and was wonderfully atmospheric and a great location to enjoy the other aspect of Bangkok that we had come to explore, which was it’s street food and street life.
