On the heels of Best Western signing a hotel in the vicinity of Bangkok’s Chatuchak Market, Dusit International has announced it will operate the first hotel in the heart of the attraction.

The hotel will form part of Dhanasansombut Development’s new mixed-use development, Mixt Chatuchak, and comprise approximately 250 rooms.
Apart from its location in the market – said to be visited by six out of every 10 tourists in Bangkok – the hotel is also a short walk from the MRT (Mo Chit Station) and BTS (Chatuchak Station) rail systems.
Bang Sue Grand Station, which will replace the Bangkok Railway Station at Hua Lamphong as the terminus for all long-distance rail services from Bangkok, is also currently under construction next to JJ Market and is scheduled to open in 2019.
Suphajee Suthumpun, group CEO of Dusit International, added: “With several exciting developments set to open near the market within the next few years, the area will only become even more appealing, and our new hotel will be (well) positioned to meet the needs of the young, sophisticated travellers who visit the area seeking a distinctive localised experience.”
