As the sun sinks slowly behind the Bangkok skyline, guests can begin a relaxed evening in the City of Angels at the Sofitel candle ritual.
The enchanting daily ritual continues a French tradition that dates back to the 17th century and the reign of Louis XIV. Every evening in the Paris streets, flickering candles would be lit to reveal the mysteries of the night and the fashionable metropolis became known as Ville de Lumière – the City of Lights.
Each evening when darkness falls at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit, we continue to honor the French tradition with our own illuminating candle ritual choreographed and performed by hotel ambassdors who descend from the heavens in Thai costume. The Sofitel candle ritual creates a link with French elegance and Thai culture.
