TOP AFTERNOON TEA EXPERIENCES
Le concierge orient
St Regis Bangkok
Effusing sophistication, tea in this handsome parlour serves up some luxurious treats like lobster rolls and duck liver profiteroles. One can also opt for the Thai set with an array of delicious local dainties like loop choop and sticky layer cakes.
So famous is the chocolate buffet at the Sukhothai that it is regularly featured in guide books as a must-visit in Bangkok. The dedication to the forms chocolate can take is tantalisingly overarching here. For a cup of hot chocolate, one gets to choose from at least 23 types of chocolate from all over the world.
Arguably one of Bangkok's most storied indulgences, a sitting here in this resplendent salon dedicated to the likes of Somerset Maugham and Joseph Conrad lifts tea out of the habitual context into the allegorical realm altogether. The luxury we sip here is both historical and metaphorical.
