Bangkok: Thrilling Nightlife and Shopping

The capital city of Bangkok is easily one of the most diverse, vibrant and exciting cities on the planet. While it has the potential to feel overwhelming, the sheer size also means that there is something for everyone to do, see and explore. You might take a quiet sunrise boat ride along the Chao Phraya River, or you could spend all night indulging in the wild nightlife that the city is known for. Bangkok offers shopping that surpasses that of most other Asian cities, and you can buy everything from bargain souvenir T-shirts to tailored silk suits. While Bangkok is home to dozens of hotels and resorts at every imaginable price point, one of the top pick for travellers time and time again is the Peninsula Bangkok. Right on the banks of the Chao Phraya, the Peninsula boasts all of the modern amenities upscale guests might come to expect, and that includes a stunning outdoor pool, lavish spa services and incredible cuisine. Kids will also be well taken care of thanks to children’s programs that range from Thai culture courses to fun spa days for the little girls in your life.

Chiang Mai: Breathtaking Mountain Views

This northern Thai city is best known for breathtaking temples and a thrilling nightmarket that will keep you entertained for hours. Although it is significantly smaller than the capital city of Bangkok, Chiang Mai is still the second-largest city in the nation, and it has lots of historical and religious significance within Thailand. Unlike many popular Thai resorts, this destination is inland, which means that there are no beaches. However, Chiang Mai does offer lush jungles, access to the nearby Doi-Suthep Pui National Park and gorgeous mountain views. If you are searching for absolute luxury during your stay in the region, you will have plenty of options to consider, but few can compare to the Dhara Dhevi Chiang Mai. This lavish resort has a colonial style, a theme that is evident in both the opulent suites and the private residences on the property. You will love reclining by the splendid pool, indulging in world-class cuisine cooked by some of the region’s top chefs and experiencing the local culture and heritage through courses like traditional weaving or even Thai cooking classes.
