The Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok is among the best hotels in the city for many reasons, one of which is that the hotel prohibits its security guards from using whistles when directing traffic to or from the busy main street and the side street on which the property is located.
Many other, less enlightened, Bangkok hotels, by contrast, require their traffic officers to use a whistle while directing traffic, which greatly increases the noise pollution in the city, and spoils guests' stays.
A stay at the Shangri-La will, consequently, be more relaxing than a stay at most other hotels in Bangkok, and is a vote for peace and quiet. No need for earplugs here!
