You will have the chance to be a Bangkok property millionaire without spending a single baht.

Next month will see the launch of a Bangkok edition of the popular family board game Monopoly.

Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok is bringing back the game with added glitz and glamour.

“Monopoly – Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok Edition” (licensed by Hasbro) will make its debut in August – and all guests booking suites with a minimum of two consecutive nights via the hotel’s website receive a complimentary copy of the legendary board game.

In this special edition, participants can strive to be a Bangkok property millionaire by acquiring the city’s major landmarks, roads and properties.

Potential purchases in the game will include Thonglor and Sukhumit, Victory Monument, the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), the Grand Palace and shopping malls including Siam Paragon.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to travel back to a time when technology was not dominating face-to-face communications and when quality time with family and friends was spent playing popular board games,” said Alex Pichel, General Manager of Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok

“We are delighted to be the first hotel in Thailand to introduce a customised version of this world-famous board game.”

The “Monopoly” accommodation package is available from August 2018.

  1. Thanks for your comments Andy. This story has been used by other media so I feel we were justified in publishing however, we are sorry to all of our readers if you felt this story did not meet our normal standards.

  2. I have followed the site for a couple of months now. Was a good source for Thai property info. Must say content quality has really gone downhill. Hope a return to form is order.

  3. Thank you Gunther. Considering Monopoly is a property trading game and we are a Thailand property website we respectfully disagree.

  4. dis is PR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you even have link to the package!!!!!! Cultural issues? That is not property related either. I agree with the OP. This is a very dubious news story 🙁

  5. Thank you for sharing your opinion Orrin.

    We disagree that this is not news. We feel there are possible cultural issues in that both Wat Arun and the Grand Palace are listed as being part of the game. We had hoped someone would pick up on this aspect without us having to point it out. We are pretty sure this will be picked up by other publishers in time.

    Thank you again for sharing your view and taking the time to comment.
