Bangkok is not just a city of tourist destinations. Thailand’s capital is also the country’s center of trade and commerce, which makes it the ideal location for business trips. The city houses local and foreign companies that provide the opportunity of dealing with diverse industries and cultures. However, you can’t just hop on a plane and head to Bangkok and conduct a series of meetings. Instead, you must first consider the following factors to have a trip successful.

Learn about Thailand’s local customs

Familiarize yourself with Thai customs and traditions to avoid facing legal consequences. You can be penalized even for minor infractions, such as going to jail for showing disrespect to their king. Likewise, you must stop every time their national anthem is being played, which is at least twice a day. Otherwise, you will face dire punishment.

Know the weather conditions

You won’t be productive if you’re not comfortable with the weather in Bangkok. Those who are traveling from cold-weather countries can leave their coats behind because it’s relatively hot throughout the year. Therefore, it’s best to pack lightweight clothing mostly, but don’t forget your suit for the meetings.

Choose the right venue

The nature of the meeting and the number of attendees will determine the appropriate location. If the venue is for a conference that will attract hundreds of people, consider its accessibility to transportation and venue security to make it easy for everyone invited to attend. Consult a trip planner if you are going to Bangkok for the first time and let them find venues within the city that will be pleasing to your guests.

Find available meeting rooms

Bangkok has a wide array of meeting areas and conference rooms, which are appropriate for casual meetings, business lunches, and conferences. Most companies reserve a hotel conference room to address catering problems as well. This set-up also works for attendees who are looking for accommodation, especially if the conference lasts for several days.

Don’t forget the tour

Though you are there primarily for business purposes, it doesn’t mean that you can’t squeeze in pleasure during your free time. Given that you have limited time for roaming around, visit famous landmarks such as the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and Wat Arun. You can also find local restaurants around Sukhumvit road to try sumptuous Thai dishes. Visit as many tourist attractions nearby to make the most of your limited time.

A perfect place for business meetings

Chateau de Bangkok has conference rooms that are ideal for board meetings, seminars, conferences, and product launches. These spaces are versatile to address your needs, and they can alter the layout to maximize the space. You need not worry about food as well because they can provide snacks, beverages, and meals courtesy of Paparazzi Restaurant or Café Gourmand.

After the meeting, you can stay at any of their spacious rooms starting from the Studio Superior Room and the Studio Executive Room. They also have the Superior and Executive Suites with either one or two bedrooms. Roaming around Bangkok won’t be a hassle as this hotel is just a five-minute drive from the Lumpini MRT station and a five-minute walk from Ploenchit BTS station.
