From Sathorn to Shanghai. 

For three decades a beacon of old-world opulence on Sathorn Road, The Sukhothai hotel is only now taking its name abroad.

The Sukhothai Shanghai (www.sukhothai.com/shanghai) is a fitting companion. Part of a mega mall-slash-office complex in the Nanjing central business district, the hotel’s 170 rooms and 31 suites (from B10,457) bear clay walls and oak wood panels for a natural yet modern look.

Of the five F&B options, one name will stand out for Bangkok foodies: La Scala, whose second coming sits in an Italian Renaissance garden-inspired space.

Take some R&R at Sukhothai’s signature spa, which doles out all-natural, Southeast Asian-inspired treatments, before strolling to the nearby Wujiang Road, a local street-food hot spot, and tourist landmarks Jing’an Temple and Shanghai Natural History Museum.
