Forty-eight years after it first opened to tourists from around the globe, the iconic Dusit Thani Bangkok on Saturday closed its doors with a tearful farewell by its staff and loyal guests.

In collaboration with Central Pattana, the hotel’s owners – Dusit International – have planned a sprawling amalgam of residences, retail zones and office spaces along with Mark II of the hotel.

Some architectural parts will be preserved for use in the new hotel, then the original structure will tumble floor by floor to make way for a Bt36.7-billion mixed-use project – a new hotel included – that will open in 2023.
