Where to stay in Bangkok for your upcoming Team Building event?
Always full of life, in the day or at night, Bangkok offers an excellent choice of locations to be based at for corporate meeting or team building trip.
Choose to be alongside the river of kings and experience daily river life and a nightly sky full of dazzling lights, alternatively be based in the heart of the city at one of the main entertainment and shopping areas such as Silom, Sukhumvit, Siam Square and Prathunam, which are always lively, full of people, with great dining, shopping and nightlife or choose to be slightly away from it all on the outskirts of the city in a more relaxing resort style environment, yet accessible to the city and its main attractions.
The choices of location and abundance of corporate meeting accommodation and venues makes Bangkok the ideal team building city for for any urban experience you care to imagine. Best locations to stay at in Bangkok are summarized below:
Sukhumvit Area - with access to skytrain, markets and night life.
Silom Financial District - with access to skytrain, nightlife and night markets
Siam - with excellent access to the skytrain in all directions.
Pratunam - with fantastic and cheap shopping opportunities.
Chinatown - with hidden treasures and colorful landmarks.
By the River - with access to Bangkok's most famous tourist sights.
Each area is unique, and we have attempted to pair the area with a suitable team building event, like a sommelier pairs a nice bottle of wine with a suitable dish. You should avoid staying at one side of the city and travel to the other side for your team building event for many reasons. Firstly, you may lose hours on an already busy meeting schedule and you may end up stuck in traffic. In addition, try to find carbon-friendly ways of team building, for example, exploring the city on foot. If you stay at (or near) Chinatown, then one of the most meaningful activity you should add to your itinerary would is the Chinatown Walking Discovery.
If you hold you meeting in a hotel by the river, i.e. Hilton Millennium, it would be wise to pair it with a Klong Amazing Race with private longtail boats because the jetty right in front of the hotel. Or if you stay at Pratunam Area, and selecting the Amari Watergate Hotel, why not have a gala dinner on the rooftop of Centara Pavilion hotel? It's just around the corner.
In order to have a meaningful team building experience, careful planning and the right selection of hotels and accompanying team building activities are important.

Bangkok Team Building Fun & Competition

This can range from fun activities like a trip to the beach, a Karaoke night, or a staff football competition, to more learning-oriented team building activities like organizational development or leadership training. From one extreme "Fun" to the other extreme "Learning", Fun & Competition is three-quarter on the Fun side of the scale.
