The Art-Centric 137 Pillars Suites & Residences Bangkok has quickly become a popular address among Thailand-bound creatives, with a house collection that contains a treasure trove of local artwork. Now the hotel is taking its commitment to the next level, with a new private tour led by one of the city’s leading art connoisseurs.
Designed for two or four guests, the private art tour will offer an intimate behind the scenes glimpse at Bangkok’s art scene, with visits to four or five independent galleries and a chance to meet with local artists and collectors in their own studios or homes. Tour leader Panu Boonpipattanapong (Eddie, for short) is a local columnist and author with his finger on the pulse of the local art scene and a contacts book bulging with the addresses of the city’s top up and coming artists, so if you’re looking for something in particular, you’re in good hands.
The personalised tour, including gourmet picnic basket, costs $475 per couple, or combine it with a two-night stay in a luxury suite including welcome drinks, access to the Baan Borneo Private Club and complimentary use of the hotel’s London cab for BTS station transfers for $1,471.
