  1. You really believe the PH BKK can break THB 10k per night? In the past, St Regis tried, but failed. There are only two major chain hotels that can charge 10k per night and that’s The Peninsula and Mandarin Oriental.

  2. “vortex generators can reduce noise by 2 decibels. A whisper is 15 decibels.”

    This is a fundamental misunderstanding of decibels as a measurement (which is logarithmic). You can’t make such a comparison. A better response would’ve been that 3dB difference is generally accepted as the discernible threshold. In other words, one could measure – with a meter – the difference between 60 and 62 decibels, but most people can’t actually hear a difference. 60 to 63 is where most people would start to notice.
