The EM District is Bangkok’s newest tourist hotspot with its massive luxury shopping malls and some of the city’s finest cuisine. And a city in itself, once you arrive it’s difficult to find a reason to leave.
Perfectly positioned within walking distance to all the EM District has to offer, and with the peaceful retreat of Queen’s Park in its backyard, when it comes to Bangkok accommodation, you can’t go wrong with the Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park.

What to Expect From a Stay at Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park
Location alone would warrant booking this hotel for its easy walking distance to the Emporium & EmQuartier malls as well as Phrom Phong station. You organize one Bangkok airport transfer and then can walk or train for the rest of your trip! Though it really doesn’t hurt that the hotel is also 5-star luxury across the board.
Make sure you get access to the exclusive M Club Lounge as it really makes the stay (included when you book a 3 night package through Luxury Escapes). You get great food, a bottomless glass of alcohol, and stunning city views.
As always the rooms are Marriott perfect with their comfortable beds and modern amenities. The hotel has everything you need including a pool, spa, fitness area, and restaurants to suit any appetite.
Conference rooms rival the best found in Bangkok making it perfect for the business traveler as well.
With over 50 dining options, EmQuartier’s Helix is where it’s at when it comes to tantalizing your taste buds. A spiraling dining extraordinaire awaits as you check out floor after floor of great restaurants.
For the Instagramer, there’s “Full flavor” offering photo worthy traditional Thai meals. For a cozy and affordable experience, head to the two-story KRAM Cafe & Thai Kitchen.
Or, if you’re traveling as a couple, impress your date / partner by taking them to the all out sexy that is Bella Rocca. The great restaurant is made even better if you love Italian.
You couldn’t possibly dream of better shopping than what is offered by Bangkok’s EM District. Soon to be comprised of three luxury shopping malls, the current duo of giant malls offer more than enough temptation as it is.
Music, fashion, and art festivals all come together at the EM’s dozen or so venues making the District a perfect stage for world class exhibitions. You better hope you brought an additional suitcase along with having booked an airline that offers generous weight restrictions!
Emporium consists of six floors of upscale restaurants and enough luxury brands to impress the Kardashians. While it has recently been refurbished, it doesn’t attract quite the crowds that its newer and flashier sibling does. This makes the Emporium a great place to shop away from crowds if you find yourself a bit claustrophobic.
What makes EmQuartier flashier? How about its stunning architecture, beautiful gardens, a waterfall, a massive rainforest chandelier, skywalks, oh yeah and its shopping. You’ll find Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Cartier, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Chanel, and more.
EmSphere will be the third and final installment of this ambitious District project. Looking like Spaceship Earth from Disney’s Epcot, who knows what this mall opening within the next year will have in store.
Although it’s pretty hard to miss the Dinosaurs that have invaded Bankonk, I recommend giving Dinosaur Planet a miss. Ironically, the attraction is a bit small, it’s overpriced, and even young kids find it a bit underwhelming. Rest assured however that you will find enough alternative options to keep you busy.
Benjasiri Park, or Queen’s Park, commemorates the 60th birthday of Thailand’s queen dowager Sirikit. The park is a great place to get away from the busy city to enjoy a bit of tranquility and is a favorite of joggers. Best of all is that Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park offers their own direct gate access to the park.
K-Village offers local Thai foods and crafts through its weekend markets. Dasa Book Café is a book lover’s dream, offering second hand books in a wide variety of languages including a large percentage in English.
You may want to make sure you have travel insurance for this next one, but head to Flow House where you can surf in the middle of the city. Be advised you may end up on your face numerous times but will have a smile as you do!
