Long Description:
The Westin Banyan Tree Bangkok is unique in appearance as well as its notariety as the building used in "Tomorrow Never Dies". If you're on a budget (like me) you'll have to settle for looking up from the street. If you have money to burn (starting at about $300US/night) you too can sleep in luxury like Bond. And you'll be right in the heart of Silom on Sathorn Rd., the business district of Bangkok and have embassies for neighbors. And you'd think that with all the embassies around I'd have gotten a strong GPS signal but as you can see in the picture, weak signals all around the building. I finally climbed to a highway overpass a block away and finally up high above the wires and overhangs, I got a reading. So the coords above will put you in the middle of Sathorn Rd. hopefully standing on the pedestrian walkway above the traffic. The actual coords from Google earth are N 13 43.2382 E100 32.2656. For those with the money, the time, and no fear of heights there is a club called Vertigo on the roof. Since I don't have any of the 3 I settled for standing on the ground and talking to the taxi drivers out front. "Yes, Bond, James Bond" (and lots of pointing at the building).
