As the centre of a regional hub, Bangkok has taken the stage as one of the leading capitals in Southeast Asia. More and more business travellers arrive here on a daily basis and as all have found, business travel in Bangkok is a genuine pleasure.
As with the rest of Thailand, the services and facilities offered to the business traveller remain unparalleled. Hotels and serviced offices are excellent, and the level of IT capability in Thailand's capital is on par with any capital in the world. As with the rest of the country, banking services are efficient and reliable, and with an international standard telephone network and high speed Internet facilities, telecommunications services are equally good. In addition, Bangkok's BTS 'Sky Train' (elevated railway) and MRT 'Subway' (underground railway) alongside its expressways and elevated toll ways all ensure travelling around Bangkok is now as convenient as travelling in any major city. For business people with conferences and conventions to organise, facilities such as the Queen Sirikit Centre, BITEC and Impact Arena further help make Bangkok a key business destination. But of course, Bangkok's legendary nightlife, its restaurants, its bars and entertainment, alongside its ancient temples and other cultural sites, all serve to ensure business travellers enjoy the most of their spare time in the capital, and ensure Bangkok will always remains on the business traveller's itinerary.
