Sofitel So Bangkok Giveaway

Copenhagen

I’m finally down to processing all my photos from my last last Bangkok trip for my blog. I’m sure many of you long-time followers of my instagram have seen quite a massive number of photos from it way back since the beginning of this year.

With that said, I somehow cannot believe the multitude of times I’ve visited Bangkok this year, but I’ll never say “no” to re-visiting again.
I’ve had the incredible opportunity to see Bangkok in a different light, with none other than three of my beautiful girlfriends, Jessica, Yina and Marie, cordially hosted by Sofitel So Bangkok.

I’ve always enjoyed the down-to-earth side of Bangkok, where I get my hands on the street shopping and local street food. Not to mention, the $8 foot massage.
This time, though, Sofitel So Bangkok really spoilt me to the core with their luxurious spa services, top notch dining, and extremely cosy and beautiful themed rooms.
It made the 5 day trip feel like a getaway in paradise, and it was so hard for me to part with the place on the last day.

Here’s sharing a photo diary of some snippets which I captured. I would love to give you guys every single detail about my stay, but I think the photos speak for itself, and one of you guys will get to enjoy what I did with a complimentary 3D2N giveaway, in kind courtesy of Sofitel So Bangkok.

Please read to the end for more details on the give-away. For now, just enjoy these photos I put together! 🙂

The lobby that I wish was my living room.

      I am amazed by Melissa’s pictorial diary of everything in Sofitel So Bangkok. I wish that I can have the opportunity too to breather away from my place. I really wish to overnight and get inspired by the hotel which is themed with 5 main Feng Shui elements. The beautifully designed theme rooms, the breakfast provided that can certainly embark on my gastronomic journey early in the morning and the infinity pool that overlooks Bangkok’s skyline give me all the more reason to have a vacation here. This is really a home for the happy soul. I really really wish to win this trip !

    Falling in love with shopping, food and massages in Bangkok. It’s a paradise where one can travel back unlimited times in a year. The hotel, Sofitel So is a place where I want to stay in their comfort and cosy room with beautiful decor and eating their yummy food . It’s definite an awesome hotel for my honeymoon Staycation with my hubby after our wedding.

    Of all my years of travelling I regret to say that I’ve never been to Bangkok before despite it being the closest city to Singapore that’s full of shopping and good food. It is very important to have a good first impression of every new city I visit and from the post about Sofitel So Bangkok on her blog, it looks very world class and exceeded my expectations of Bangkok. With the infinity pool and spa I could probably even stay in all day! I hope to win this and finally have a very good reason to getaway from my busy schedule and visit Bangkok for the first time in my life!

    Sofitel So Bangkok Hotel is probably the most high class and posh hotel I first read about on Melissa’s blog. Other reviews that I found on google did not disappoint either! Settled in the bustling and hot city of Thailand, I strongly believe that Sofitel So Bangkok is SO capable of offering a comfortable rest and a good night sleep after a long day of shopping around the city. So Spa will also be SO ideal for tired souls looking for a first class massage and spa to soothe body aches from all the walkings and lugging of shopping hauls from all around Bangkok. Hoping to share the same experience as Melissa:)

    Cheers!

    It has so far been a sweet September for me! Being an educator I really enjoy what I am doing at work.

    I strongly believe that being able to win a staycation in Sofitel Bangkok would give me a good reason to pamper my love and I and to step out of the daily humdrum of life. Making this September a truly special and splendid one.

    Melissa’s write up of her experience at the hotel has made me spellbound for the longest time ever!

    I am convinced that Sofitel Bangkok screams sophistication, stunning and stylish designs that is equipped with stellar services.

    I am looking forward not only to stunning rooms but the also the wide array of activities provided in the hotel itself. One of the highlights for me would be So Spa that offers guests with the wholesome experience for one’s mental and physical well-being.

    Wishing for a smashingly superb September at Sofitel Bangkok!

    Greatly appreciate Sofitel Bangkok and Melissa for the wonderful giveaway! =)

    Best regards, Shu Yu

    My mum has never been to bangkok and with the recent current situation, she was even more afraid than ever to go. If I were granted this two night staycation opportunity, it will be a great chance for me to persuade her to go with me and let her know how much bangkok has change over the past years!! Sofitel So Bangkok rooms would definitely impressed her and change her perspective of bangkok. She would never ever expect that such beautiful rooms would ever exist in bangkok and she would be more than happy upon seeing such rooms! She definitely need to experience the local street food and sight seeing to change her perception of bangkok!
