The jellyfish is an amazing marine creature.  These marine invertebrates can be found in every ocean in the world.  My first upclose encounter with them was at the Hong Kong Ocean Park.  More of that later, but first, snapshots from the jellyfish exhibit.



The Pullman Bangkok King Power — Bangkok, Thailand

The Pullman Bangkok King Power is another new hotel in the Bangkok metropolis to have adopted a post-modernist decor.  However, this is balanced with subtle Thai sensibilities, functional considerations, and professional service.

The club-level room has everything a business traveler could ask for and more.  There is an immediate sense of space with its floor-to-ceiling windows.  In-room amenities are plentiful, but the smartest feature must be its wardrobe, which opens on the back-end to the spacious bathroom.

The capaciousness extends to the open spaces of the hotel, such as the lobby and the pool.  The pool in particular features a small grass lawn, where guests can lay out the towel for a tan (just make sure to apply a generous dose of sun block as the equator sun is relentless).

There are a number of dinning options within the hotel which seem to be reasonably priced.  Else, a complimentary hotel tuk-tuk brings guests to the nearby Victory Monument BTS.  The gym is small, but adequately equipped.
