A Night of the Stars
The excitement and magic of a star-filled sky adds glamour and intrigue to this unique and splendid evening. Gentle candlelight enhances the glitter and sparkle of hundreds of shimmering stars and a dramatic dark background brings into play the diamond brilliance of silver juxtaposed to black. Rays of light burst forward, reflecting on the chiselled, glimmer of ice carvings. The stage flickers with a profusion of fairy-lights in the shape of stars. The setting evokes the grandeur and majesty of the universe, an evening spent anywhere and everywhere at once.
The majestic evening sky, shimmering with the brilliance of hundreds of sparkling stars is recreated at Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok.
The captivating and exotic images of the enchanting Kingdom of Siam (the Thailand of yesteryear) come alive once again. Here on the banks of the River of Kings in the heart of the splendid city which so captivated foreign travellers of the last century, the daily life of Bangkok is revived. The fascinating legends, the charming architecture, the exotic silk costumes, the evocative music, the graceful dancing, and the gracious manners of a gentle people are all brought to life.
Exotic Siam isa truly delightful event that recreates all the charm and beauty of the Kingdom of Siam.
Loy Krathong: Lights on the River Festival Event
Guests arrive to find the hotel's charming garden and pool area lit with soft lights and lamps. They are greeted by staff in traditional Thai costumes. Gentle Thai music drifts through the air as guests mingle and enjoy cocktails and a sumptuous buffet dinner around the pool. During the meal, there is entertainment on stage: Thai dancing, a show of Thai boxing and masked theatre drama. The pageantry of the evening comes alive as beautiful contestants compete to win the title of the "Nang Nophamas" Beauty Queen. After dinner, guests are invited to join in the Thai folk dancing. Then comes the highlight of the evening when each guest receives their own flower float "Krathong". Walking to the river they make a wish before lighting the candle and placing the float in the water. The grand finale is fireworks over the river.
Until visitors to Thailand actually experience the Loy Krathong festival, they cannot image its beauty and charm. Called the "most romantic" holiday, this celebration takes place on a full-moon night in November. But at Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok, any night of the year can be turned into this magical night. The origin of Loy Krathong dates back to the ancient Sukhothai Kingdom when a Princess set the first flower float in river to thank the water spirits.
Experience dinner in our formal ballroom decorated with thousands of beautiful orchids. The entertainment begins in the foyer where, surrounded by gorgeous bouquets of orchids and soothing music, guests are served cocktails. Guests file into the room across a real ice bridge decorated with ice vases bursting with orchids. The ballroom is profuse with even more colourful orchids hanging from the ceiling, resting in bouquets on white linen tablecloths or streaming down pillars. A magnificent five-course dinner is then served as guests are treated to an evening of Thai classical dance and musical entertainment during dinner.
With delicate, beautiful orchids serving as the inspiration for this semi-formal or formal event, and classical Thai music and dance used as entertainment, the evening is a celebration of the exotic charm and beauty of Thailand.
