Siam Intercontinental 1970

A weekly image from my archive. Click on the image to make it larger.

A much younger PND family lived in the white building on the left on the second floor at the far end between 1968 and 1969. The tower block was constructed and completed around 1967 whereas the main hotel - with the red tile roof - was opened in 1960. For many years the Interconti was the hot spot in town and, with the Oriental, the only top class hotel in Bangkok.

The stately building on the upper left was the current Kings' mothers' residence.
