Many of us grew up dreaming of becoming property tycoons by acquiring a city’s major landmarks, roads, and properties as we played the all-time favorite board game MONOPOLY. Now, you will be able to “purchase” properties in the fancy neighbourhood of Thonglor and other Sukhumvit roads, Victory Monument, the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), the Grand Palace, and even premier shopping malls such as Siam Paragon!
The “Monopoly – Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok Edition,” a special edition licensed by Hasbro, made its debut this month and all guests booking suites with a minimum of two consecutive nights viaSiam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok’s website receive a complimentary copy of this legendary board game.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to travel back to a time when technology was not dominating face-to-face communications and when quality time with family and friends was spent playing popular board games. We are delighted to be the first hotel in Thailand to introduce a customized version of this world-famous board game, ” explained Alex Pichel, General Manager of the hotel.
Kempinski Hotels, one of Europe’s oldest luxury hotel groups, opened its first property in Thailand’s capital on September 27, 2010. The city-resort, located next to Sra Pathum Palace, is a luxurious five-star property which combines Kempinski’s trademark of European flair with the traditions of Thai hospitality. Its 401 guest rooms and suites overlook the property’s surrounding gardens and swimming pools, and 21 rooms have direct access to the pool.
Thai artistic heritage is a key theme of the Siam Kempinski Hotel, and the property displays 4,000 artworks, including more than 200 original paintings and sculptures commissioned to Thai artists exclusively for the hotel. A new website will soon be launched to showcase the amazing talents of Thai artists.
This “Monopoly” accommodation package is available from August 2018.
In 1935, Parker Brothers began selling the MONOPOLY property trading game, which would quickly become a cultural phenomenon.
