Sofitel So Bangkok offers guests a stylish way to explore the city, with a custom-designed, 4-door MINI Cooper Countryman amongst its fleet of luxurious limousines.

In addition to airport transfers, guests can book the So MINI for a chauffeured sightseeing trip, travel to and from business meetings, or visit a string of shopping and leisure destinations around the capital.

“As the city's first truly urban lifestyle hotel, we wanted to showcase the Sofitel So signature 'playful luxury' concept in our limo fleet as well. The So MINI Cooper Countryman is unconventional yet practical, with sufficient space to comfortably fit two guests and their luggage. Along with the convenience of being chauffeured by an experienced auto-pilot who is well-versed in navigating the roads of Bangkok, we offer our guests a stylish, pleasurable way to travel from point A to point B. Time is a luxury that we can help optimise by allowing our guests to make the best use of theirs while on the road,” says General Manager Gilles Cretallaz.

The hood of the So MINI is emblazoned with graphic representations of the five elements – water, earth, wood, metal, and fire – from which the hotel drew its design inspirations. The iconic Tree of Life emblem, designed exclusively for Sofitel So Bangkok by Monsieur Christian Lacroix and representing the ancient symbol of immortality, embellishes the side of the crystal silver-coloured cars.

On the journey, guests can enjoy best Chocolates from Chocolab, light snacks, and refreshing cold towels. They can also sink into the plush bucket seats and enjoy the complimentary use of a 3G-enabled iPad, pre-loaded with the Sofitel So Bangkok app [so they can get a head start in exploring the city and hotel facilities]. Providing the perfect audio ambiance for the urban travel experience, carefully curated music playlists are also available for guest enjoyment using the So MINI.

The passenger capacity for a chauffeur-driven So MINI Cooper Countryman is two guests plus one medium-size suitcase, and there is a three hour minimum for the booking.

Sofitel So Bangkok hotel's fleet of stylish limousines also include BMW 5- and 7-Series, Benz Vito Van, and Toyota Commuter Van. Together they offer an ideal choice, whether for the business traveller going to a meeting, or for a party of passengers getting around town, or to and from the airport.

Like Sofitel So Bangkok itself, the city’s first truly urban designed hotel, the limo fleet is a seamless experience of luxury.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
