How should one describe Thailand? This is a country that is more suited to an epic mythical story than real life. There is a golden-hued beauty to it, with a varied landscape dotted with glittering temples, cluttered cities and a mix of tropical forests and sugar-soft beaches that collide with jagged blue mountains. This diverse yet sublime environment provides the perfect triple-centre adventure through cities, villages and islands with luxurious hotels.
Bangkok has been described by Lonely Planet as “a city where the familiar and the exotic collide like the flavours on a plate of pàt tai.” In the hurtling time capsule of this once small trading post, life is continuing to prosper in one of the most diverse destinations in the world. Like a true and resilient icon, Bangkok has kept with the times by coinciding with the old and new. With high-rise condominiums contrasting with royal palaces, stately temples and floating markets, Bangkok is the star holiday destination of Thailand. Spice up your trip with a stay at the 5 star AETAS Lumpini!
A coach ride on a lovely winding road takes you to the stunning city of Chiang Mai, which was founded in 1296 as the seat of the Lanna Empire. Tucked away within a private botanical garden, the 4 star Horizon Village & Resort is a gloriously natural and elegant resort all rolled effortlessly into one idyllic mix. This inviting retreat is perfect for relaxation, indulgence and exploration amidst the tropical landscape of lush mountains, jewel-encrusted temples and age-old curries served with wine.
As your plane lands in Koh Samui, you will be greeted by white canopies of sand that shimmer as though they were encrusted with diamonds. The 5 star Elements Boutique Resort and Spa Hideaway hide-away spills throughout a beautiful marine reserve onto silky swathes of sand lined with low-slung palms. You might want to splash yourself with the infinity pool’s sparkling water to realise that this isn’t a dream!
