While much is recorded about the Chakri Dynasty, Princess Valaya Alongkorn was truly special. Known for her love of books, Princess Valaya as a young girl would disappear for hours lost in literature. What started as a pastime, became a passion that she shared. Princess Valaya was pivotal in establishing one of the first all-girl schools in Thailand, even donating the land to establish a university specializing in training Thai women to become teachers and educators.
Princess Valaya’s creativity extended far beyond her skilled chess-playing and appreciation of literature. At the coronation ceremony of Queen Rambhai Barni, it was Princess Valaya who designed the dress that became a sensation.
Renowned for her ability to elevate European styles with a Thai aesthetic, Princess Valaya’s influence was seen in everything from interior design to flower arranging. It was her mastery of these pursuits that are integral aspects of the modeling of The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok.

A couple of minutes away is CentralWorld and continuing on this shaded elevated walkway takes you to Siam Centre and all the shops of Siam Square.
Erawan Shrine is one of Bangkok’s best-known and most colorful daytime activities. Housing a statue of Phra Phrom, the Thai representation of the Hindu god of creation Lord Brahma, the shrine is a blaze of color from the heaps of marigolds, fragrant with incense, and there is a resident dance troupe performing classical temple dance moves.
