The signages and the menu are all written in Chinese, providing that authentic Taiwanese feel.

Here’s a photo essay of our Taiwan Fam Trip Group’s visit to Have Hot Pot…

CHIANG KAI-SHEK MEMORIAL HALL

CHIANG KAI-SHEK Memorial Hall is a tribute to the founder of Taiwan, Chiang Kai-shek. It opened in 1980, 4 years after his death in 1975.

My AMARI WATERGATE BANGKOK Experience #AmazingThailand

Amari Watergate Spa and Dinner-58.jpg

AMARI WATERGATE is a 5-star hotel in Central Bangkok. It’s strategically located in front of Platinum Mall near the Pratunam shopping area.  

I was a bit apprehensive about going to Bangkok because of the Martial Law situation there, but Amari Watergate gave me a warm Thai welcome. This erased all my doubts and fears about the safety and security in the capital. 

Check out my Amari Watergate Bangkok experience…
