    I would stay at the Siam in the early 1990s as a pilot for Delta Air Lines. My favorite was the pool and the beautiful grounds.complete with peacocks. Thanks for the reminders. claude

  2. So many of us while working for Pan American have fond memories of our layovers in Bangkok and staying at this wonderful hotel. We were all saddened when it was torn down because it was such a beautiful peaceful place in the heart of a busy city. We love your website, keep up the good work.

    One little known fact about the Siam Intercontinental Hotel is that the original architectural design was drawn up in the mid 1960’s for a luxury beach side hotel to be branded as the Bali Beach Hotel (now the Inna Grand Bali Hotel) on Sanur Beach in Bali, Indonesia. Due to the growing domestic turmoil in Indonesia, including Bali, in the mid 1966’s the blueprints for the hotel to be build in Bali were moved to Bangkok. Those plans ultimately were the basis for the design and construction of the Siam Intercontinental Hotel in Bangkok in 1967 and opened in Aug. 68. That hotel was ultimately torn down in 2002 to make way for the Paragon Dept. Store complex. The Siam Intercontinental Hotel was a gem not to be forgotten.

    Living in Bangkok 1968 to 1972 the Siam Intercontinental was thought to be the epitome of beauty and graciousness
    of all the hotels. Recently I could not believe my ears when a friend told me this gorgeous panacea to all the problems of the world had been torn down. I had to verify it for myself. Interesting that the original plans were for it to be built in Bali. Thank you so much for
    your photographs renewing old treasured memories.
