How to holiday like a millionaire in Bangkok

How to holiday like a millionaire in Bangkok

Bangkok may be known for its many affordable shopping and dining options, but the city also offers tourists many exquisite options to have a luxurious holiday.

Bored of five-star hotels? How about taking it up a notch at Siam Kempinski's Royal Suite which boasts 300,000 baht (S$10,000) for each night's stay.

Dubbed as an opulent "six-star" hotel, Bangkok.com, a tourist information site, said the hotel is the capital's most expensive accommodation.

Guests staying here can enjoy two large bedrooms and amenities like a jacuzzi, massage room, bar, kitchen and even a gym - all within the spacious condominium-like suite itself.

If you need to get around, forget taxis and just hire a helicopter.

According to Bangkok.com, though dozens of the high rise luxury hotels have their own helipads, you might never see an actual helicopter land on it due to its high costs.

Just how expensive can it get? A ride from the main airport to the roof of The Peninsular Hotel can set you back around 40,000 baht (S$1,700) - and that is just one way.

If you are afraid of heights, high-end super cars are also available for rent.

Cruise down Bangkok's top shopping streets in a Lamborghini or Ferrari by renting one from Prestige Car Rental Bangkok.

Paying 50,000 baht (S$2,100) to rent a Lamborghini Performante for a whole day might actually be worth it if you think about the cost price of the automobile.

According to online reports, the price for the Performante is not yet available, but the ball park figure is said to be around US$240,000 (S$335,000).

Other amazing daily car rental options include the Porsche Caymen for 13,000 baht or Mercedes CLK for 11,000 baht.
