...My first postcard is coming from Jobbo... a nice view from the past of once the most iconic and glorious hotel set in the heart of Bangkok... belonging to the Royal Family... sadly replaced by a shopping mall... Thanks a lot Jobbo!!ヽ(ヅ)ノ
From backside postcard:
POOLSIDE: Connected to the famous Inter-Continental Parkland, the poolside promises a lot of lovely sights on top of being that ideal spot for a swim,sunbath, snack or drink.
Built on 26 acres of Sra Paduma Palace gardens in the 1960's, the Siam Intercontinental Hotel was a well-know Thai landmark. It won an award from the Ministry of Science, Technology and the Environment for its environmental protection work in 1999.
However, when the hotel's 30-year lease expired, it was torn down to make way for another shopping center. The 26-acre garden was reduced to a few acres.
