Planning a trip to Asia but just can't quite seem to find either enough time or budget to do everything you want to? Here's a modified thought-consider the Shanghai Mansion Bangkok when heading to Thailand. This fusion of a boutique hotel whose Chinoise Chic atmosphere sends you straight back to Shanghai circa 1935, where elegance, romance and glamour ruled, and exquisite antiques and brilliantly colored silk furnishings were the standard. 55 gorgeous rooms, all named after traditional Chinese flowers are endless exploding fusions of colors- vibrant fuschia, shimmering turquoise, embroidered emerald and crimson blending harmoniously with the more modern fixtures including cable TV, wi-fi, mini bar, all the things you say you don't need but we know you really do. And, when you're feeling a bit peckish, you've got your choice of the antique-style Tea House on property or just about any traditional Chinese dish just steps away from your door in the heart of the city's Chinatown district. This sanctuary provides a calming cocoon of comfort, shileding you from the chaotic pace of Bangkok and gives you an authentic Shanghai experience if you've only got just a short time (or budget) to spend.
