Dining at the Mandarin Oriental ~ Bangkok, Thailand

Dinner al fresco along the Chao Phraya River


For our last night in Bangkok
we splurged and had dinner
at the Mandarin Oriental
Hotel,  said to be the best
hotel in the world.  The Oriental
was the first hotel in Thailand
and has hosted stars, dignitaries
and writers such as, Somerset
Maugham, Noel Coward and
Joseph Conrad.


We were greeted in the lobby
with a string quartet setting
a romantic mood.


We rode a teak boat across the
river and ate under a beautiful
jacaranda tree by moonlight.


The chefs make lovely carved
fruit arrangements.


The appetizers.


When we travel in foreign countries
we like to sample many of the dishes.
So we order what we would like
and then pass them family style
so we can taste the culture.


Just Desserts.


We had such a good time, we
closed the place but it will be a
night we will remember forever.
