From Chiang Mai, we headed down to Koh Samui for some R&R at Absolute Sanctuary. Up until Koh Samui, our schedule for the trip was pretty tight. I felt like I had been running non-stop to get to this point, so I was ready to log some serious chill time.
Just a quick post on the go to share some photos and video from the Elephant conservation we visited in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
I’ll update a longer post when I’m home but this was too good not to share!
Our second destination on our Thailand trip was Chiang Mai and the hotel we were so incredibly lucky to stay at was Dhara Dhevi. It was heaven. Marcel and I had our own two story villa with an outdoor and indoor jacuzzi, a piano, a steam room, you name it. I can’t wait to show you more photos. For now, you can check Instagram for my updates. There were so many beautiful locations on the 60 acre property, so we tried to take as many photos as we could possibly squeeze in (which was sadly not that many). A great place to show you my new purse which I’m obsessed with. The pink leather is to die for (so is the black). Also wantthe backpack version (again, also in black).
… and thus began the vacation of a lifetime: shortly after midnight we arrived at our hotel, the Peninsula Bangkok, after traveling for more than 24 hours. A fantastic skyscraper, nothing short of the kind we have in NYC, filled with luxuries of all sorts. It’s perfectly located, with a view of Bangkok and astounding facilities ranging from the pool, to the riverside restaurant, all the way up to the 37th floor. I included a few shots for you, so you get a very vague feel of how awesome our stay was over there. Please feel free to check out my miniature “commercial”, as the others of the group I’m traveling with dubbed it, right here!
What can be better when you’re thousands of miles away from home than to appreciate the uniqueness of the local cuisine? Thailand is no exception. Thailand, a country that lies on the water, is known for its fresh abundance of seafood. It would only make sense to highlight our five favorite seafood dishes that one can find and indulge in while on a Thailand journey. Bon Appétit!
What does luxury mean to you? Accessing to the inaccessible? Making hassles dissolve with the minimum of effort? Finding time to simply be yourself? Our friends at the Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok shared with us a video giving everyone a tour of luxury within their hotel.
Our friends from the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok want all of us to “Get Happy.”
