Thailand Festive Dinner

Bailliage of Bangkok Rattanakosin, Thailand
Bangkok, December 15, 2022

Christmas Spirit at the Kimpton Maa-Lai
" we embraced the Chaîne traditions of great food, wines and camaraderie "

The Bailliage proudly held its inaugural Christmas Dinner at the Kimpton Maa-Lai, an award-winning new hotel known for its innovative design and restaurants. The hotel is a part of Velaa Sindhorn Village which is situated in the centre of Bangkok’s Central Business District. It is one of the most modern lifestyle complexes cherished by well-heeled Bangkokians.

How better to celebrate our members’ overwhelming support in their participation at sold-out events throughout the year than bringing everyone together for a pre-Christmas extravaganza.
