Maybe it’ll change your mind. The Peninsula Bangkok was everything I ever wanted and more! My search started on Tripadvisor as it usually also does. I’ll be honest, it was quite tempting to stay at the Lebua just for the oh-so-popular Sky Bar. But I’m glad I chose the Peninsula for many reasons. Pricing: The pricing was very reasonable considering other 5 star hotels in the area. We…
