I raised my arm aloft and almost in a breath a waiter was afoot! I glanced and said in Thai – kob khun khab – translating into English – thank you very much. I then ordered one more ice cool Margarita. But hey Margaritas served at the Oriental Hotel in Bangkok, are not run of the mill margaritas – they are special just like everything else in this great multi award winning Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Bangkok.
