A visit to the old Erawan Hotel

A visit to the old Erawan Hotel - September 3, 2005

Long a Bangkok landmark, the old Erawan Hotel stood at the corner of Rajaprasong intersection. It was built in 1956 and torn down in 1987. A new highrise hotel was built in its place.

Unless otherwise noted, the receipts and images on this page are from a brochure, circa 1963.
