Because of the massive hunting of Pokemons around Bangkok, some of those poor simulate creatures take shelter in hotels, restaurants, and cafés throughout the city. However, we humans show them no mercy and instead, come up with ways to lure Bangkok’s Pokemasters. Time Out Bangkok rounds up some of the Pokestops in town that offer discounts and promotions for trying to catch 'em all.
(1) JW Marriott Hotel Bangkok
One of the poshest Pokestops in Bangkok. Catch up to three Pokemons hidden in the hotel, take a screenshot, post the picture in the hotel’s Pokemon promotion Facebook post, tag three other Pokemasters, and you'll be entitled to get 10% off on delicious pastries at the hotel's Bangkok Baking Bakery, a Japanese set lunch at Tsunami restaurant, and a Nami burger at Nami Teppanyaki Steakhouse.
